How Men Can Become Better Allies to Women

Women’s conferences and employee resource groups (ERGs) are increasingly inviting men to attend. By creating events aimed at men, they hope to include men in discussions around gender equity in the workplace, and make organizational diversity efforts more successful. The evidence shows that when men are deliberately engaged in gender inclusion programs, 96% of organizations see progress — compared to only 30% of […]

Why Women Stay Out of the Spotlight at Work

To get ahead in the workplace, you have to be seen. Being visible at work allows employees to demonstrate their skills, land prominent assignments, and build strategic relationships. For women, however, the importance of visibility creates a conundrum. On the one hand, women’s contributions are systematically overlooked at work. This limits their professional advancement and helps to explain why the senior levels of […]

In January of 2018, Annette Zimmermann, vice president of research at Gartner, proclaimed: “By 2022, your personal device will know more about your emotional state than your own family.” Just two months later, a landmark study from the University of Ohio claimed that their algorithm was now better at detecting emotions than people are.

Mauvais réflexes, automatismes… Comment se détacher de 3 biais mentaux qui sapent vos décisions

Pour devenir un meilleur leader, il est nécéssaire d’ apprendre à reconnaître et à maîtriser ses biais cognitifs. La plupart des leaders ne savent pas que leurs décisions sont influencées par des biais produits par leur propre cerveau. Pourtant, ce dernier nous joue des tours et l’art de la décision exige un esprit lucide, délesté de ces biais cognitifs. Si […]

How to Pump Yourself Up Before a Presentation (or Calm Yourself Down)

Public speaking affects people in different ways. Some people get jittery and anxious before they talk; they need to spend time calming themselves down before they go onstage.

Leaders Focus Too Much on Changing Policies, and Not Enough on Changing Minds

Not long ago, I asked 100 CEOs attending a conference how many of them were currently involved in a significant business transformation. Nearly all of them raised their hands, which was no surprise. According to a study by BCG, 85% of companies have undertaken a transformation during the past decade. The same research found that nearly 75% of those transformations fail to […]

Is Your Emotional Intelligence Authentic, or Self-Serving?

It’s possible to fake emotional intelligence. Similar to knockoffs of luxury watches or handbags, there are emotions and actions that look like the real thing but really aren’t. With the best of intentions, I’ve seen smart leaders charge into sensitive interactions armed with what they believed was a combination of deep empathy, attuned listening, and self-awareness but was, in fact, […]
