by Liz Bywater, PhD - Aug, 2008
Stress. It's a fact of life for today's busy executives, managers, and independent business owners. And that isn't entirely a bad thing.

How to Avoid Employee Burnout
by Liz Bywater, PhD - Jun, 2008
While leafing through the New York Times last weekend, I came upon a disturbing article. Not surprising, I know. Today’s papers are filled with stories of death, destruction and general gloom and doom. This particular article was actually more subtle than all that. On some level, in fact, it was a tale of success. It was the story of a group of bright, motivated youngsters gearing up for college by taking advanced placement co...

Why do so many companies have uninspiring leaders and uninspired employees who plod along with little — or the wrong — motivation?

Hiring is an emotional process for everyone involved. Understanding a prospect’s emotional drives (as well as the interviewer’s) is key to finding and keeping the right people. Certain interview questions can illicit responses that will tell you how a person is feeling about themselves, your company, if they are team players, and how they will react under stress.
