What questions should you be asking yourself about your leadership? What are some common tensions of leadership? And what money mistakes should you avoid before retirement?
These questions and more are answered in this week’s My 5 for Friday:
Soon, my wife and I will have the privilege of welcoming into the world our first child after nine months of pregnancy. Not many lengths of time are defined with such a strong identity as the nine months leading to the birth of your baby.
During this time, there is much excitement, learning, and preparing for what is to come in this new stage of life. However, there is one thing in particular that you may not have considered about the nine months of pregnancy – your financial cost.
You’re going to announce an organization-shaking decision that won’t be popular with everyone.
You’re about to have that conversation you’ve been avoiding for months.
You aren’t sure if you are going to have a job this time next week.
From performance to personnel issues, the reasons for a leader’s anxiety are innumerable. Like many leaders today, you may find yourself feeling immersed in anxiety. And you desperately desire to come up for air.
You want to breathe again.
Some big news just came out of the United States Department of Labor about overtime pay.
Overtime pay is where certain employees must be paid 1.5 times their normal rate for any hours worked beyond 40 hours in a work week. Yesterday the Department of Labor released an update to the overtime regulations under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) on who is and is not eligible to receive overtime pay.
