My Emotional Intelligence Playlist

Fellow music lovers:  if you’re like me, it’s difficult to narrow down your favorite songs and bands.  But let’s say you’re forced to choose one genre that speaks to you the most. What would it be? For me, it’s rock – hands down (I still get a little tingly by long-haired guys with electric guitars and leather pants).

The Bright Side of Life with Zombies

Now we know the answer to the question “Who did Negan kill?” The season 7 premiere of The Walking Dead was just as bloody and disturbing as expected.

How the double platinum rule can help your career

You’ve surely had the Golden Rule drilled into your head from a young age: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” These words have kept us ethical and on-track, particularly in terms of communication and relationships with others (If you don’t want others to lie to you, then don’t lie to others!). Example: Bill’s direct report, Sarah, did an excellent job on her most recent project. Bill was so impressed that he acknowledged her publicly during a large division-wide meeting.
