Management Style And Employee Mental Health – Is There A Connection?

July 30, 2014 04:55 by Christie Hunter  [About the Author]

management style and employee mental health is there a connection
In management circles, there is a popular saying that you are as good as the people you hire. Corporations are social entities that harness the extraordinary power of the collective, rather than relying on a few good individuals to gain prominence. True, there are few distinguished performers in all companies that act as the face of the enterprise, but that does not discount the contributions of a wide cross section of employees whose efforts and skills are indispensible to the corporation. For every Steve Jobs there are whole cadres of software programmers, project managers, product designers among others who help realize the company’s vision. [More]

Cybercommuting: The Psychology of Working from Home

July 6, 2014 04:55 by Christie Hunter  [About the Author]

cybercommuting the psychologyof workingfrom home
Telecommuting was a term phrased in the 1980s to describe how the introduction of cordless phones and faxes enabled employees to work from home (WFH), thereby putting an end to the concept of a full-time office job. The same is now being said of the Internet. Of course, working from home has not been accepted as widely as onlookers predicted, but cybercommuting is becoming increasingly common. In 2010, 24% of employed persons did some or all of their work at home, while last year, the number of employees working regularly from home was 10% in the US alone. Like any other phenomenon prevailing in our society, WFH culture also comes with its own psychological effects. [More]

Do You Have a Workplace "Spouse"?

do you havea workplace spouse
You don’t have to be a therapist to know that becoming close to a colleague can potentially lead to becoming more than just friends. One needs to be aware of the danger signs, especially if they’re already in a committed relationship (with someone outside the office, that is). To be clear, it is possible to work closely with a person of the opposite sex without crossing the line into intimacy or a full-blown affair. The key is setting boundaries and sticking to them.

Professional Women and Burnout

professional womenand burnout
Women tend to strive more for excellence; to prove themselves. Not that men don't feel they need to prove themselves, but women have an extra push to show that they are smart, knowledgeable, capable, and able to handle just about anything and everything. Research shows that women are still not as "committed" as men. Women are often referred to as bossy when they are actually being assertive. [More]
