Interesting Links – January 2017

This post is the first of a theme for this year (I’ve scheduled to have one Interesting Links post per month). The aim of Interesting Links is to share articles on a range of topics, relating to HR and communication among others, that can give you a different perspective on the area being covered.

From Inc.: Four signs you’re stuck in a career rut (and how to get out)

Why is it interesting? The start of a new year can be the best time to take stock of where you are in your career (and life in general). This article gives an easy list to check-in and see if now is the time to start making some changes.

From Lifehacker: How being humble and calm can make your life easier

Why is it interesting? It is too easy to get caught up in stressful situations, and attempting to make sure others are aware of how skilled and brilliant we are. Sometimes, it’s worth taking a step back – exactly what this post is about.

From HR Bartender: Boring work is often important

Why is it interesting? People don’t like work that bores them – no surprises there. However, what some will consider boring is most likely unavoidable, so making yourself aware of the upsides of boring work is a good thing.

From TLNT: Engagement enhancing conversations every manager should have

Why is it interesting? As I’ve put front and centre on this site – communication is key to success, and communication often involves conversations. This article gives a great overview of three conversations worth having.

Happy reading!

Until next time,

Louis
