I figured this was definitely worth sharing as becoming more "mentally strong" is pretty much required in almost every work situation these days, especially when it comes to successfully navigating career transitions. Plus, I love Eric Barker's stuff...!!!

Some concerning stats that should cause all managers to stop and ponder what they mean (in terms of impacted productivity) to their own organizations. Of course the key is to be able to take specific, meaningful actions to improve things:

Good article here, although I found the title misleading. Author talking about "the people", not "the company". Yes, we want to build around growth-oriented people. Yes, we want to build a high performance organization:

"Anyone buying a share of Amazon stock today is agreeing to pay upfront for the next 180 years of profit." A fascinating look at a platform company that is busy eating most things in its path. And no-one really knows where that path might go:

It's unfortunate we headline it as "failure" rather than "rapid experimentation & learning", but hey -- the message is bang on:

What makes great teams nicely summarized here by Eric Barker (sign up for his newsletter -- its great stuff!). Aligns well with latest research from Google on their high performing teams:

Much of academia sheltered from "real world" students are emerging into. Shocking to think that most professors believe university teaches "creativity, verbal communications, adaptability". Have they sat through one of their own courses recently?

I think of myself as in the "helping business"; this is one thing I continually struggle with. I am (slowly) learning how to say no and who to say no to.... ever so slowly, it seems to me. I like the Tim Ferriss "1-to-10-with-no-7" approach :

"nearly one in five CEOs said they never doubt themselves"..... oh my. "Hubris is not confined to CEOs." Too true. General strategies for inoculating the team and organization against hubris contained here -- easy to write about, tougher to implement:

Every high performing team I ever had the privilege of working with had leaders that naturally did these things with and for their teams. A 4 minute article definitely worth reading and sharing around your teams:

I think Eric Barker's stuff is terrific, so if he recommends these books, then who am I to disagree? The surprising thing -- I read about 4 non-fiction books every month, and I've only read 1 book off this list... guess that means more great books to read:

Time on your hands to waste a few minutes playing a seemingly point-less retro'80's video game? I've got just the ticket for you (I'm still trying to find a way to drive up happiness and hike the rent on the DMV.....) -- save a shopping mall!

Great advice from a Google VP here, however still hard for many people to do without a clearer recipe for taking action: . At our upcoming (Re)Boot Your Career workshop (Ottawa on 22-February: ) we do exactly that....

3 great reasons to share this: 1st, EQ is central to team effectiveness work I do, so it's relevant. 2nd, Eric Barker's stuff is always bang-on with great research backing. But the 3rd is the biggie -- it's such a great a cartoon I just had to share it!

"I'm the most competent person you will ever meet!". In the spirit of that sort of personal hubris, lack of self reflection, and wilfully ignoring feedback, I'm pleased to share this little gem with you:

Yes, I've never been a big fan of "best practices" inside your own industry but really do like to cherry-pick concepts from non-related industries. And the "did that before and it didn't work" is a big killer of trying new things....

Good advice -- every new innovation typically has couple of ideas that can fit your environment and be applied usefully. So, understand the "new thing" first and be clear on what you want to implement from it, why, and how it fits within existing systems:
