Welcome to #BestBlogs, the weekly curation of the world of work.
The latest ideas on organization life, personal collaboration and the politics of work from practitioners around the globe are collected here so you may become more effective, perhaps even more satisfied, in career.
Every week our themes emerge organically and this week the writers included talk about the yin and yang of feelings and emotion in a professional world. One of the most caring collections I’ve ever curated, I cried more than once at the beauty and impact of these words. Read these blogs to become a little more human in a modern world.
These fine authors offer you different and fresh perspectives on the intersection of life and work.
