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 theme emerges organically and this time around we dive into the deep end of the pool with some extraordinary writes about character, choice and competition. These fine authors offer fresh and different perspectives on the intersection of life and work.
