Increasing effectiveness in a multitasking world
Forbes
In any kind of business, there's always too much to be done and it seems like the whir of activity never stops. That's true, and the pace only gets faster as the world becomes more complex and competitive. With this, the logic would seem to be to give your team as many tasks to focus upon as are needed — with an increasingly longer list as time goes on. While on the surface it appears that you’re getting more done, you're really not; in fact, the opposite is true.

What it takes to be the boss
By Michael J. Berens
Who wouldn't want to be the boss? You get to call the shots and tell everyone what to do. You get a nice office, an even nicer paycheck and all those perks. What's not to like? It turns out, though, not as many employees as you might think aspire to being the boss. Fewer than 1 in 4, according to a Pew Research Center report.

Step aside, millennials — Here comes Generation Z
By Greg Witz
Born from the late 1990s to now, Generation Z is the current generation, and its oldest members are starting to enter the workforce. They are known as "digital natives," and we joke that the "Z" stands for zombies as they are rarely away from their devices. More importantly, they are researching and interacting with our companies long before they will ever buy our products, so being proactive in understanding them is crucial for our companies' future success. Now is the time to be proactive in preparing our organizations for Gen Zers.
