Science is backing a simple form of meditation as an easy way to develop willpower.
(Disclosure: I tried transcendental meditation as a young psychology graduate, but wasn't diligent. I couldn't relate to the 'guru in a cave' image of the transcendental bit. I've been sceptical for more than 30 years. I wanted hard evidence. Now I'm satisfied.)
Who says gossip has to be unpleasant?
I've been gossiping for years and see it as an important part of my leadership role.
Think of gossip as a valuable tool for building a healthy culture in your team. It's a way of communicating your values - what you admire and think worthy of mentioning.
