I can always count on Steve Gladis to find exactly the right article in Harvard Business Review for anything going on in the marketplace today! You can visit his blog to find out all sorts of interesting things, like the post below:
–If you want to survive, act like a survivor. Be confident and cheerful. Stay focused on the future by concentrating on the customer, without whom nobody will have a job.
–Give your leaders hope. They agonize over layoffs, so cut them a break. Empathizing with your boss will give you an advantage.
–Be a corporate citizen. Companies like team players. Research shows that collegiality may trump competence when push comes to shove.
