I came across a lot of articles that I wanted to share – but I couldn’t make up my mind on what to select as the “must read”.
So, what I thought I would do this week is share the articles, and let you decide the must read.
But fear not – whether you want to read about fostering a culture of dissent, embracing transparency, or why almost half of professionals expect to leave their job in the next 2 years – there is something for everyone. Just go ahead and take your pick…!
