Summer is here! With the season come outdoor get-togethers with family and friends, concerts under the stars, and trips to the beach or the lake. You’ll need research and insights for beach reading and travel podcasts! Did you know that we have new research and insights (we’ve recently focused on talent mobility, team engagement, corporate board practices, leadership, executive coaching; more can be found here) as well as new podcasts for you? Here are a few that might be of particular interest:
- A Conversation With…Dave Ulrich, Rensis Likert Professor at the Ross School of Business, University of Michigan
- How to be Happy at Work with Annie McKee
- How Organizations Build Highly Engaged Teams: A Closer Look at Quicken Loans
- Diverse Voices: Profiles in Leadership
Hope you have a chance to read the new research from my colleague, Matteo Tonello, whose Corporate Board Practices in the Russell 3000 and S&P 500: 2019 Edition report is an annual “must read.” He provides clarity around the reasons why board diversity remains an elusive goal: from long director tenure, which means fewer vacancies, to the preferred profile of the seasoned director.
