A strong, authentic employer brand is key to recruiting, retaining, and fully engaging top talent. The most effective companies build a differentiated employee value proposition (EVP).

You have the opportunity to lead: to show up with confidence, connected to others, and committed to a purpose in a way that inspires others to follow.

178: How to Succeed at Work/Life Balance (Without Going Crazy)
Imagine life is a game where you are juggling five balls. Work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back.

176: Stop Networking — Start Applying Network Science to Transform Your Career and Leadership | with David Burkus
This is a conversation about a book that’s not like any networking book you have read (or ignored) before. In fact, it’s not about networking; it’s about how networks actually work.

175: The Excellence Dividend | with Tom Peters
In the next two decades, nearly 50% of white-collar jobs are at risk, either to automation or artificial intelligence (AI), according to analysis by Oxford University.

173: Clarity First ― Improve Performance by Eliminating Ambiguity | with Karen Martin
Ambiguity — in the form of uncertainty or conflicting priorities — has become the default state for organizations of all types.

It saps energy from talented team members operating in the dark […] For additional content and links, visit http://www.EngagingLeader.com
172: Build One Powerful Habit at a Time
Success is about doing the right thing, not about doing everything right.

171: Stop Trying to Multitask — It’s Making You Dumb and Ineffective
Multitasking doesn’t save time — it wastes time. When you try to do two things at once, you either can’t or won’t do either well.

169: Use a Success List (Instead of a To-do List)
Instead of a to-do list, you need a success list — a list that is purposefully created around extraordinary results. A to-do list becomes a success list when you apply Pareto’s Principle to it.
