I want to have an extraordinary career — and really make an impact inside my company, and out in the world.

But there are so many little things that need to get done every day.

It’s so hard to stay focused on the big picture.

Sound like you?

If so, I can relate. In running my own business, I know how challenging it can be to get all of the “little things” done, while still making progress toward your bigger, more meaningful career goals.

Some days, it can feel like you’re drowning in…

It took a few weeks, but Twitter has finally released diversity data on its company, joining the likes of LinkedIn, Facebook and Google. The results? Twitter’s roughly 3,000 employees are predominately white (59%) and overwhelmingly male (70%).

The company’s gender gap, in particular, becomes even more pronounced when broken down by expertise. Of Twitter’s technology employees, a whopping 90% are men. For non-technical jobs, the split between genders is 50-50. What’s more, almost 80% of…

A few months ago, one of my employees decided to leave the company. Her exit wasn’t a total surprise — we’d hired her originally as an intern, and we all knew her heart and her passion resided in the nonprofit realm. I tried to convince her that our business — employee engagement consulting — was saving the world in a different way, but alas, she wasn’t buying it.

We’re a relatively small organization, and life gets busy. On her last day, I was in client meetings and didn’t really get a…

Executives often complain to me about the new generation of employees — they aren’t as committed, sophisticated or knowledgeable as more experienced employees would like them to be. They get bored or disillusioned quickly. Turnover is a problem, and so on. Just as often, I respond that youth may not be the main problem new hires have.

People face many pressures at the start of their career. In addition to understanding their new position, they are trying to figure out the who, what, where,…
