That’s the case when it comes to both treating patients and working with others to develop new healthcare tools. The military may want a product ...

A leader's job isn't to motivate people; it's to tap into people's sense of purpose. Motivation is the byproduct.Lead your team like a free society, not a dictatorship. Based on developmental psychologist Jean Piaget's observations, Peterson emphasizes the importance of an equilibrated state, which is "a situation that's set up by two or more people where everyone is parti...

This is how I started a successful B2B tech company

Less than a decade ago, I left a high-paying tech job in New York City to found my own SEO-optimization company. It was a calculated risk — I had a family to support but did not pursue investors or venture capital. Instead, I focused on organically building a consulting company, and using it to later incubate my software company. Since I left my job in November 2011, I have personally sold around $3 million of business to date (without an enterprise sales background). This is more than twice wha...

Apparently, it was an effective way of stimulating his brain. Einstein declined to wear socks. Is it possible that geniuses are naturally a little more offbeat, or do these unusual practices inspire further genius? Can we train our...
