The Path From Diplomat to Global Entrepreneur

After more than a decade of rising in the ranks of the public service, I began to question my career path. It was a career like many that had taken time to build. As a Canadian diplomat, I looked to a potential future with a great salary, a pension, international travel, and most of all, the prestige of representing Canada on the world stage.

Nepotism at Work: Does Your Job Pick Favorites?

Your boss promotes his incompetent nephew, even though he’s clearly not management material. The company owner’s 20-something daughter gets a private office, but almost every other employee works in a cube. Your co-workers who are chummy with management always get the plum assignments, while others are stuck with busywork. Favoritism rears its ugly head in many offices, and as an employee, there’s not a lot you can do about it. Nepotism at work may be unfair, but it’s not exactly illegal.

The Director's Chair: Leadership Lessons From The Theater

An actor’s job is to create and bring to life characters, much like a senior leader may have to put on a game-face in order to better lead a team. Traditionally, analysis and critical thinking were valued over emotional intelligence and people-skills due to the fact that the former are more easily quantifiable.

Geoff Molson: ‘You need to be humble, you need to allow other leaders to lead’

Geoff Molson, 45, is president and CEO of CH Group Limited Partnership, owner of the Montreal Canadiens, Bell Centre and Evenko, and chairman of the board of Molson Coors Brewing Co. 

My father taught me to never expect anything that others wouldn’t be able to expect as well. In Montreal, with the name Molson, you could very easily put yourself in a position where you would expect things in life. My father’s advice has served me well and has led me to work harder and achieve things, but also be humble and not be different from anyone else.

Apa yang bisa dilakukan jika Anda tak lagi staf favorit bos?

Karl Moore tak bisa melupakan saat-saat ketika disingkirkan oleh bosnya ketika sang bos memasukkan orang baru.

Sebelum orang baru ini masuk, Moore yang bekerja sebagai manajer di kantor IBM di Toronto, Kanada, adalah bagian dari 'kelompok elite' yang sangat dekat dengan bos.

Tapi orang baru ini langsung menjadi bawahan favorit dan Moore langsung terlempar.

"Ibaratnya masuk ke kursi cadangan," ungkap Moore.

"Ini jelas bukan pengalaman yang mengenakkan," kata Moore yang sekarang adalah guru besar di Fakultas Manajemen di Universitas McGill.
