Celebrate Your Humanity at Work
Without work all life goes rotten- but when work is soulless, life stifles and dies. ─ Albert Camus
Business owners, leaders and CEOs everywhere are talking about the search for humanity in the workplace. These global leaders are examining the role of true meaning and purpose, both on an organizational and individual level.
Steven Covey says there is a “spiritual renaissance taking place in the business world today.” While corporate leaders are searching ways to ignite commitment and performance, for most people this means finding true significance in what they do. The rapidly changing job environment causes us to ask questions such as, “How does my humanity or significance “show up” in the workplace?”
Here are four personal questions worth asking:
- How does my purpose thrive here?
- How can I bring more significance to my work?
- Is this the job I am really meant to do?
- Is there a place for me and my true values to contribute in this workplace?

Creativity and the Brain: What Should Coaches Know and Do?
Whether or not people are creative is not the issue. Being successful at creativity is what coaches deal with—in two ways. First, our clients come to us with the classic creative question: how do I overcome limitations or barriers to my reaching greater potential? Second, we coaches ourselves face unique challenges with every client, drawing upon our own abilities to be successfully creative. Brain science provides knowledge and guides for action to help us support our clients and meet our challenges.

Glass Ceiling, Sticky Floor, Now Glass Cliff: Barriers to Women Considering & Advancing in Male-Dominated CareersPosted: December 28th, 2010 | Author: Joan Runnheim Olson | Filed under: Workplace Humanity | Tags: Career, Coaching, Glass Ceiling, Humanity in the Workplace, Leadership, Leadership Coach, Women | No Comments »
Glass Ceiling, Sticky Floor, Now Glass Cliff: Barriers to Women Considering & Advancing in Male-Dominated Careers
Recently, I read an article titled, “Workplace discrimination: Welcome to the ‘glass cliff,’ “by the Christian Science Monitor. The article reported that new research from Yale University found that “when a person has a high level job traditionally held by the opposite gender, they are judged more harshly for their mistakes.” Unlike the glass ceiling which keeps women from rising higher, the glass cliff is what women in male-dominated careers are in danger of falling from.
According to the American Heritage Dictionary, the glass ceiling is defined as, “An unacknowledged discriminatory barrier that prevents women and minorities from rising to positions of power or responsibility, as within a corporation.” Women still hold only 15.7 percent of C-level positions at Fortune 500 companies. According to a recent study by Catalyst, Inc., gender stereotypes continue to prevent women from reaching the summit.
