How Humble Leadership Really Works

When you're a leader - no matter how long you've been in your role or how hard the journey was to get there - you are merely overhead unless you're bringing out the best in your employees. Unfortunately, many leaders lose sight of this.

Power, as my colleague Ena Inesi has studied, can cause leaders to become overly obsessed with outcomes and control, and, therefore, treat their employees as means to an end.

What It's Like to Inherit Billions in Your Twenties

Tyler Huang is living what many would think of as a dream existence, but he feels like he's just sleepwalking through life.

After a year-and-a-half of loss, sickness and stress caused by the pandemic, burnout is high and morale is low. But in some positive news, according to Laurie Santos, Yale's "happiness professor", the way to feel better need not depend on restrictive diets, gruelling fitness regimes or testing mental challenges, but in something far more attractive: fun.

The American psychology professor and Happiness Lab podcaster, who rose to international fame when her course "psychology and the good life" became the Ivy League university's most popular course of all time, says that consciously injecting more fun into our lives - which she refers to as a "funtervention" - can not only improve mental health and help prevent burnout but also improve physical health.
