How to Be Happy (or Miserable) at Work

Posted By: Geoffrey James
Filed Under: employee engagement, geoffrey james
To be consistently happier at work, examine and replace the beliefs that make you miserable. There's no question that bad stuff happens. When a close friend or family member dies, it's appropriate to feel grief. Similarly, good stuff happens. If you suddenly get an unexpected windfall, for example, it's appropriate to feel stoked.

Most of the time, though, the stuff that happens isn't dramatically positive or negative. It's just stuff that happens. Whether you let that stuff make you happy or miserable is entirely dependent upon your beliefs.Everybody has beliefs about what events mean to them. In most cases, however, people assume those beliefs reflect objective reality and are therefore immutable Laws of Nature.

As the summer draws to a close and the fall hiring season brightens, we are happy to say that we are hearing about more and more landings from our members. While job search is never easy, it's always interesting to hear the stories of success — especially their biggest takeaways. Here are some excerpts from a few of the cards and emails we've received recently that you can learn from and may inspire you.


Scott Anthony, Managing Partner at Innosight and leader of the company's AsiaPacific region and venture capital activities, pulled the audience right in with his insights into the challenges associated with what he terms "the first mile" — the crucial time when an idea moves from concept to paper to market. Anthony believes business are most fragile in the first mile, when they move from plan to reality, something which is particularly challenging for large companies. Big companies are designed to execute today's business model; in such an environment, innovators are a natural threat and struggle to survive.

How to Lead By Stepping Back: Five Steps to Delegation

Posted By: Laura Stack
Filed Under: productivity, laura stack, delegation, leading teams
If you're a reader of my blogs, newsletters, and Tweets, you'll know I've returned repeatedly to the topic of delegation over the years — and for good reason. As a leader, there's no more effective and productive way to handle all your responsibilities. Leadership positions come weighted down with more than their fair share of tasks, because by definition a strategic initiative is more than one person can handle. Effective leaders must parcel out that work and a good deal of the associated authority, so they can continue to think strategically and get things done through others.


As part of ExecuNet membership, I conduct a bi-weekly teleconference called Six-Figure Hotline where members call in to ask the questions keeping them up at night, and to gain market and trend insight from the career experts who join me in talking about issues that are important to executives today.

In one such teleconference, I was joined by Dave Dart, an executive search consultant, and a member asked us, "Should your LinkedIn profile mirror in verbiage your resume, or should it be a condensed, more marketing-like, promotional piece?"
