How to Get It All Done Without Losing Your Mind

Ask any leader, and they will likely tell you they have more to do than they have time to do it. We have all kinds of metaphors to describe it: wearing lots of hats, too many irons in the fire, burning the candle at both ends … you understand, because you’re likely living it. The best managers increase their ability to handle greater responsibility, and they help the leaders working under them to develop these skills as well. But how do they do this? Understand that it’s not the end of the world if you occasionally drop some balls. You... Read More >

Handling Conflict: The Challenge of Modern Managers

2018-08-24 by EPR Staff

Conflict is an inevitable part of any workforce. Though today's hiring managers are investing more time and effort into choosing recruitment candidates that fit with company culture, it's impossible to know whether someone will work out in a team before they're given a chance to thrive in a specific situation. According to research by the Virginia Department of Human Resources, up to 80% of all workplace conflict stems from difficult relationships between managers and their staff. This means that even if it's difficult employee attitudes holding a business back from success - it's still up to the leader of that... Read More >

These days, the scandals in the media seem to be mostly centered around harassment at work, but a recent headline out of Britain reminded both readers and activists that some women are still fighting for an equitable paycheck. CNN is reporting that the BBC is apologizing for “underpaying” a senior editor who happened to be a woman. Carrie Gracie, the BBC’s China Editor, learned she was being paid less than male colleagues in similar roles. Gracie challenged that situation, sparking an industry wide conversation about compensation for women and equality of opportunity with their male counterparts. In an interesting move,... Read More >

Don’t let correlation cause a bad connection

2018-02-20 by EPR Staff

You’ve heard it before: “Correlation does NOT equal causation.” Just because it follows, doesn’t mean it connects. The same can be true in public relations and marketing. And, if we fail to respect this, we can easily confuse our audience and delude ourselves. How easily can this get out of hand? Consider the following correlations courtesy of the site, “spurious correlations”: Using data from the U.S. Office of Management and the Centers For Disease Control, you can create a graph that “shows” the correlation between U.S. investment in STEM and space initiatives and suicides by hanging. Another popular example of... Read More >
