(The Fuqua School of Business) CFOs are growing increasingly concerned about data security threats, according to the Duke University/CFO Global Business Outlook. The survey also found rising interest rates are expected to dampen corporate growth.
(WSJ) Smart leaders have a knack for spotting hidden potential in their employees and suggesting jobs to draw it out. Pushing people into jobs they don’t feel qualified for can be a hard sell. It can be just as difficult, however, for employees to sit back and allow the invisible hand of management to chart their careers.
(The Atlantic) “I am currently on vacation and not accepting any emails about anything. I’m not planning on reading any old emails when I get back, either, because that feels antithetical to the vacation experience.” Its subject line? A simple “nope.”
(WSJ) Unruly talent, high costs, clashing cultures and an ambitious ad strategy await leaders of the soon-to-be telecom-media giant.
(Harvard Business Review) It’s easy to blame burnout on the high performers themselves. After all, the stereotype is that these overachievers say yes to more work even when they’re already at capacity. They routinely put work first, canceling personal engagements to finish the job. While such habits may be partially to blame, this isn’t the full story.
