A workplace is defined as much by social interactions as by the work that gets done. Now, not all of those interactions are pleasant (We’ve all endured that grumbling client or that tattletale coworker.), but some can be immensely satisfying. Praise and compliments make us feel good, and they’re actually good for us. A study […]

Never trade boring for discomfort. It’s such an easy trap, a mistake so often made with the best of intentions. Business writing can be so very dull, so routine. You know your coworkers are good people, well-educated and savvy. Or at least you know they appreciate a good joke. Your story about your vacation accident […]
