Stick to passion and hire those who complement you
Founder of KIND Daniel Lubetzky shared leadership insights on LinkedIn’s #RapidFire series earlier this week. Some highlights: learn from your failures and stick to your passions. “Find something that gives you meaning and then give it everything you’ve got.” As it relates to team building, Lubetzky said to hire people who complement your own skill sets. He says it’s important to step outside yourself in the hiring process and look for someone who is “not like you” and whose strengths may be your weaknesses. But more than anything, he said he always looks for “integrity, authenticity, and critical thinking” in new hires. Watch the full Q&A here.
Leaders weigh in about the ubiquitous “future of work”
Almost three years since the start of the pandemic, Forbes is looking into the catch-all phrase the “future of work,” and what that means for the executives, companies, thought leaders, and innovators who are helping to shape the conversations. In the inaugural Future of Work 50 list, high-profile CEOs and other leaders share what will define the future of the workforce. According to Harvard Business School’s Professor of Business Administration, Senior Associate Dean Tsedal Neeley, who has authored books about remote work and having a digital mindset, Neeley says “the future is here,” telling the publication that “The days of linear change that are grounded in time and activities and change efforts–those are gone. We’re in the exponential age.”
Free yourself from shame at work
A Harvard Business Review article presented a unique take on shame: while it can cause us to experience despair, shame isn’t all negative. “Emotions like guilt and shame can inspire you to change for the better, like when you’ve caused someone pain and feel remorse,” the article cites. Those who have experienced shame at work are certainly not alone. The article outlines five tools used by clinical psychologists to deal with the feeling more effectively so that employees can better show up at both work and at home.
