of Mason City, Iowa. “The most important thing in communication is to hear what isn’t being said.” ” – Shannon L. Adler. At work, perhaps more than anywhere else, communication matters a lot. But words are not the only manner of communication. Silence is sometimes the better communicator. For example, in negotiating, I always listen for “and not a penny more.” If not said, I take that as in invitation to keep asking for more.

from Davenport, Iowa. “The best solution seldom requires that someone be right and someone else be wrong.” ” – Robert Brault. So simple, so true, so wise, so powerful. At work, as at home, in business and in relations of all kinds, perhaps most of all in politics, the true “art of the deal” is not defeating the “other side,” but convincing him or her to just, even for a moment, see the situation and solution your way.

How to Spot and Fight Age Discrimination

Water Cooler Wisdom

The insurance manager sued—and won—for  age discrimination  in Iowa after he was demoted in 2003. Jack Gross’  case set a precedent. But later, the Supreme Court reversed the decision, stating that Gross now had to cite substantial evidence that his age was the decisive factor in his demotion. The Court’s ruling made it much harder for Gross, and everyone else, to prove a case of age discrimination in the workplace.

Social media (and the personal branding phenomenon that keeps it ticking) can make it seem like everyone has it together. In turn, too many young women entering the workforce believe the myth that they must be perfect. Instead of letting their guards down, they put on airs and hope no one sees through the façade. And why shouldn’t they?
