    Communication involves the exchange of viewpoints, sometimes opposing positions. Unless you open your mind to another’s perspective, common ground can be tough to find. And finding common ground requires us to listen in order to really consider someone’s position.

    Microsoft entered the 21st century as the dominant software provider for anyone who interacted with a computing device. Sixteen years later, that dominance is looking threadbare. The reason is failed leadership, and Apple – currently the dominant tech firm for the mobile era – is at risk of making the same mistakes.

    Most professionals build their network over time through proximity - people from your business school study group, or colleagues from your current company or past jobs. You may have a few outliers in the mix, but unless you’ve been deliberate about your networking, the vast majority of people you know probably work in the same field or industry as you. It may seem innocuous, but that inadvertent myopia can put you at serious professional risk.

    When we talk about “learning to love your job” or “managing yourself,” it’s often in the context of junior or midlevel roles. But these things don’t stop mattering for senior executives. What aspects of their jobs are most important to them? What do they find rewarding? How do they sustain their passion for the work they do — without burning out?

    And yet the solution is surprisingly simple: If you want to motivate employees, stop following your instincts and adopt a data-driven approach. In other words, approach motivation as a science rather than as an art, not least because very few individuals, including managers, are naturally good at motivating people.

    Autonomy may be the single most important element for creating engagement in a company. How can anyone feel engaged, let alone inspired, if she feels that some supervisor is always looking over her shoulder? But autonomy is a double-edged sword.

    The current U.S. presidential administration and congressional leadership have spent months talking about tax reform. The next several months will determine whether such a reform will materialize and what it might include. Unfortunately, the prospects for reform are not promising. Instead of reform, we may see a tax cut — and that is not the same thing.

    Last year my wife and I moved our sole TV into our dark, unfinished basement and got a bookshelf installed on the wall beside our front door. Now we see it, walk by it, and touch it dozens of times a day. And the TV sits dormant unless the Toronto Blue Jays are in the playoffs or Netflix drops a new season of House of Cards.

    The strength of a nation’s economy and the vitality of its society depend on the quality of its schools. So why does the UK still lag behind its peers, despite investing more than them? The 2012 OECD Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) study showed the UK invested the 8th largest amount out of 34 OECD countries, but only came 19th in mathematics, 14th in science and 16th in reading.

    It’s vacation season, which means that millions of people will be hitting the road for some well-earned time off. But for far too many, even though they’ll be away from the office, they’ll still be taking their work along on vacation with them. And that’s made all the easier, of course, by the fact that we can now carry our entire work lives with us right in our pockets.

    Most of us don’t like to be told no. We consider it a rejection of our ideas and of ourselves. It’s a sign that our projects aren’t valued and our careers are stalling out. But, as Mike’s employees learned, hearing “no” can help boost us toward our goals.

    Getting employees to voice concerns is hard enough. Most of us don’t want to get branded as a “snitch” or a “troublemaker.” And most rank-and-file employees don’t want to be noticed for the wrong reasons. So employees who do escalate unethical behavior to senior management should be taken seriously.
