When you need to give tough feedback, forget Zoom and pick up the phone

It turns out that we perceive emotions better when we don’t see each other in a conversation. While most of us have learned to mask our emotions physically, we haven’t learned to mask our emotions vocally. Key insights from Therese Huston.

It may seem counterintuitive, but It turns out that we perceive emotions and hear better when we don’t see each other in a conversation.

a16z Podcast: How to Decide, Convey vs. Convince, & More - Andreessen Horowitz

How do we know which decisions to apply a robust decision process too, which ones not to? What are the strategies, mindsets, & tools to help us decide? Annie Duke shares tips from her NEW book HOW TO DECIDE, on a16z pod with Jeff Jordan.

All kinds of decisions, whether in life or business -- like marriage product management, what to eat or watch -- are a portfolio of investments. And obviously, not all decisions are equal; in fact, sometimes we don't even have to spend any time deciding. So how do we know which decisions to spend ti...

What drives us to unleash our best work? And how do we tap into that drive to get superior results with our managers, coworkers, and direct reports?

Henry shows, in fact, that there are twenty-seven "motivational themes”, each with its own unique DNA.

#TheMotivationCode teaches us to decode our Core Motivation so that we can have conversations, make decisions, and even choose career paths that lead us to experience engagement and fulfillment. Once we know how to activate our inner drivers, we can transform the work we do into work we love.

From the author of #DieEmpty and #theaccidentalcreative comes a new framework for understanding what motivates us and why. Happy pub day!

The domesticity necessitated by the Covid-19 era has become notorious for worsening our fitness and our eating, but it has also deepened our dependence on, and in many cases addiction to technology.

Next week, @ryanholiday’s new book, LIVES OF THE STOICS, is out and we can’t wait for you to read it! An inspiring guide to what the ancients can teach us about happiness, success, resilience, and virtue.

Ryan and @stevehanselman unveil the core values and ideas that unite figures from Seneca to Cato to Cicero across the centuries. Among them are the idea that self-rule is the greatest empire, that character is fate; how Stoics benefit from preparing not only for success, but failure; and learn to love, not merely accept, the hand they are dealt in life. A treasure of valuable insights and stories, this book can be visited again and again by any reader in search of inspiration from the past.

Trump’s $100 Million Mistake: How Retaining Ownership Of His Hotels Cost The President A Fortune

To put it simply: As President Trump has bragged about leveraging his business acumen to financially steward the country, he has managed to lose an estimated $100 million on just two hotels that look like cash cows, but in reality, seem to be money pits.

It sure seems like the Qatari government is using a dummy office to pay the president. Countless other foreign and American companies are also handing Trump money—sometimes without even knowing it—creating the most tangled web of ethical pitfalls the White House has ever seen.

Happy pub day!🤗 So excited to share these two books with the world. Which one stands out to you?

Whole Foods CEO John Mackey reveals what it takes to lead a purpose-driven, sustainable business. #ConsciousLeadership demystifies strategies that have helped Mackey shepherd #WholeFoods through four decades of incredible growth and innovation, including its recent sale to Amazon.🥑

From one of our foremost policy writers, #OneBillionAmericans is the provocative yet logical argument that if we aren’t moving forward, we’re losing. Vox founder Yglesias invites us to think bigger. Making the case for massive population growth with analytic rigor and imagination, One Billion Americans issues a radical but undeniable challenge: Why not do it all, and stay on top forever?🇺🇸

Things that come off of an assembly line, for example, are perfect, but things made by hand, like the glaze on a Japanese ceramic bowl, are imperfect.
