When A Work Environment Is Too Positive

Fri, 2013-08-02 10:45

One of the biggest growth areas in research in management is the role of emotions at work. When I was working at IBM in the 1980s, if anyone got emotional during a meeting, we’d stop the meeting and have coffee, until everyone calmed down. This seemed to happen whenever emotion “reared its’ugly head”. Of course, there was plenty of emotion back then, but we undervalued it. Analysis was sovereign. Things are different today.

La médecin de 48 ans réprime une pointe d’exaspération quand on lui demande pourquoi elle a dû dormir bottes aux pieds dans le Nord-Kivu. Elle avait peur des cambrioleurs et gardait près d’elle un baluchon pour pouvoir s’enfuir rapidement.

Restoring a Real Middle Class

Fri, 2013-08-02 10:45

In an interview last week, President Barack Obama correctly emphasized both that "upside mobility was part and parcel of who we were as Americans" and also that such mobility has been "eroding over the last 20, 30 years, well before the financial crisis".
