9 Powerful Leadership Lessons From The US Military
Business Insider
Military officers spend their time in service leading men and women in high-stress, high-stakes situations, and they earn their titles after rigorous, specialized training. It would be a waste not to transfer these skills to the business world upon returning home.

5 Tips To Get The Most From Overqualified Staff
Many employers hesitate to hire overqualified candidates. They flinch at the sight of overqualified applicants, and their instincts tell them that these overly gifted new hires may become dissatisfied with their roles quickly and leave prematurely or become disengaged. There is some truth to this fear, but we shouldn't throw the baby out with the bathwater. Studies show that overqualified staff perform better and stay longer than qualified staff in general. They bring a greater return to the business than qualified staff and are usually value for money. It makes sound business sense to take them on and make it work.

4 Steps That Will Take You From Apathetic To Favorite Boss
Fast Company
Two workplace news stories that recently went viral and have entered the national debate about income equality say something else that leaders may be missing. The first is of Microsoft CEO Satya Nedella, who told women to have faith and not ask for a raise. The second is of Tyrel Oates, a Wells Fargo employee who asked for a $10,000 raise over email for himself and 200,000 of his peers; he cited an enormous pay gap between everyday employees and the CEO John Stumpf. On the surface, the stories simply concern income inequality, but if you look deeper, there is more to these stories than meets the eye. The exchanges are a microcosm of something more fundamental that occurs daily across global businesses: employees want to be heard and leaders don’t listen that well.

These Manager Behaviors Translate Into A Toxic Workplace

Social worker Melody Wilding, writing on the PsychCentral website, says that employees who are unhappy with their work environment often feel job burnout, fatigue, listlessness, and depression.
