    Simple Acts that Build Your Leadership Presence
    Fast Company
    Discussion about leadership often focuses on big-picture ideas and sweeping gestures. Leaders are people who take charge and make things happen. We think of them as having big jobs, larger-than-life personalities and expansive vision. But none of us were born with these qualities and achievements. Leadership ability is like a muscle — it gets stronger as you exercise it, says leadership coach Susan Mazza, founder of Random Acts of Leadership and author of "The Character-Based Leader: Instigating a Revolution of Leadership One Person at a Time."

    5 Clever Ways Companies are Helping Employees Fight Burnout
    The Washington Post
    For the overworked modern American employee, the policies and perks offered by some of the most generous companies sound like manna from the corporate gods. Onsite climbing walls. Free housekeeping. Chef-catered meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Yet however nice such benefits may be, they can also end up acting as subtle ways to get employees to work more. It saves time and stress to have a company dry cleaner, free gourmet snacks and made-to-order mochas down the hall or access to a health clinic on the corporate campus. Still, there's an implied message: "We'll provide you everything here onsite, so you never really have to leave."
