  • The secrets of the ‘high-potential’ personality: Are you curious, conscientious and competitive? Do you also have the more mysterious qualities of “high adjustment”, “ambiguity acceptance” and “risk approach”? If so, congratulations!

  • Why is Answering Email So Stressful?: The average professional spends 4 hours per day responding to work emails. One 2016 study found that people consistently report checking their email as one of their most stressful daily activities, especially when their email arrives via “push” feature on a device. The article talks about e-mail discipline and how to make work feel more controllable. (Fatherly)
  • Want To Be A Great Storyteller? First, Break These Habits: The story you decide to tell matters just as much as how you decide to tell it. You’ve heard dozens of times that you’re more likely to engage your audience when you tell a story in your presentation. A story that’s powerful and relevant can galvanize people and inspire action. But even otherwise great stories can be told badly. Here are few pitfalls you’ll need to avoid to make sure you don’t sabotage your own storytelling. (Fast Company)
