How does a leader learn from failure?
By Betty Boyd
"Failure is not an option." We've all heard this famous quote, which originated with the Apollo 13 space mission. When lives were at stake with a failed trip to the moon and a damaged spacecraft in 1970, the words rang true for those at NASA. However, when it comes to the business world, failure is really an option. In fact, learning from failure is sometimes the best option. Too many times, though, leaders run the other way because of a fear of failure. Here are some tips to help leaders learn from failure.

Why workplace 'flexibility' doesn't help women climb the ladder
Daily Life
The biggest obstacle to women joining the highest ranks of the business world is a lack of family-friendly policies. That, at least, has been the conventional wisdom in recent years, and it has been embraced by progressive companies that offer flexible schedules or allow people to work from home. But some researchers are now arguing that the real problem is not the lack of family-friendly policies for mothers, but the surge in hours worked by both women and men. And companies are not likely to want to adopt the obvious solution.

4 can't-fail ways to grow your professional network
Entrepreneur
For some, "networking," conjures up images of overzealous "here's my card, give me a call" hustlers intent on selling you something you don’t want or need. To others, networking means working your way through a room as if you're being paid by the handshake. Regardless of how you feel about interacting with strangers, networking is undeniably one of the most effective ways of meeting people who can help you grow your career or your business.

Women, silence is not a virtue in the workplace
The Washington Post
Linda Bernardi writes: Throughout my career, I've found myself presenting in meetings where I am one of only two women. At some point in those meetings, when I get the opportunity, I ask my colleagues, "Would you please point out something that's really wrong in this room?" It doesn't take long before someone says "Ha! There are no other women." I ask, "How many of you have daughters?" Many of them raise their hands. And then I say, "How many of you want your daughters to grow up and be in rooms like this with no other women?" All the hands go down.

10 deadly sins of LinkedIn networking
Forbes
The first rule of networking is to focus on the relationship, not the transaction at hand. Good salespeople know that someone who doesn't buy their products today may be responsible for a huge new client relationship in six months — or just a kind word next week, at a moment when we really need a kind word. Relationships are not things to be shuffled and traded like Pokemon cards.
