  • 3 Tools to Overcome Feelings of Helplessness at Work

    A few months ago, I was hired by a client to lead a webinar on time management.  There were 700 enrollees, which was by far the largest online audience I had ever garnered.   Participants were encouraged to submit questions, but understandably, I was only able to get to a handful of them.   I […] The post 3 Tools to Overcome Feelings of Helplessness at Work appeared first on Melissa Gratias.

  • Productivity in the Generational Divide

    “You’re old and stale and holding the company back.” “You’re young, inexperienced, and a big slacker.”   Maybe these things aren’t being said aloud, but unless you are living under a rock, you’ve likely experienced the tension between the older and younger generations in the workplace.   In February 2017, I witnessed an excellent first […] The post Productivity in the Generational Divide appeared ...

  • Random Acts of Kindness…er…Productivity!

    Despite the fact that I am a psychologist, I’m not very mushy-gushy.  If I went into clinical practice, I suspect that I’d be like Bob Newhart and just yell “Stop It!” to everyone who started confessing their phobias.  This is why I am not a counselor.   But kindness and empathy are vital human needs.
