50 REALLY Bad Answers to “What is Your Greatest Weakness?” | INTRODUCTION TO THE SOCIAL SCIENCES DIGITAL TEXTBOOK(PSYCHOLOGY-ECONOMICS-SOCIOLOGY):MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it

Almost everyone dreads that one question – the job interview staple so inexplicably routine it has become the biggest cliché in the entire hiring process (and the subject of hundreds of blog posts on how to best answer).

“What is your greatest weakness?”

Just for fun, we decided to take a little different look at this question… and the answer. Using two words only, and with tongue firmly in cheek, here might be the worst possible answers to the worst question ever asked in a job interview:

The No. 1 Way to Kill Productivity

The No. 1 Way to Kill Productivity | INTRODUCTION TO THE SOCIAL SCIENCES DIGITAL TEXTBOOK(PSYCHOLOGY-ECONOMICS-SOCIOLOGY):MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it

It's safe to say most people are addicted to meetings. It doesn't quite make sense, especially from a boss's perspective. Meetings are expensive. The hours your employees spend in meetings are hours when they're not working.

A helpful look at meetings - and how to make them more productive.

 

(From the article): The Centre for Economics and Business Research reported that office workers spend an average of four hours per week in meetings. These same workers reported feeling like half of that time is wasted. Additionally, a Salary.com survey reported 47 percent of workers say meetings are the No. 1 time-waster at the office.

 

Obviously, not all meetings are unnecessary and unproductive. I spoke with project management and productivity expert Tony Wong to find out how to transform meetings and increase productivity. Here are his tips:

You're Rude Because Your Boss Is Rude

You're Rude Because Your Boss Is Rude | INTRODUCTION TO THE SOCIAL SCIENCES DIGITAL TEXTBOOK(PSYCHOLOGY-ECONOMICS-SOCIOLOGY):MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it

Or because you're just really stressed out.

 

What drives employees to be rude?

Over 60% blame their bad behavior on being overloaded at work. They say they have no time to be nice. Mental overload and stress short-circuit our capacity to be fully attentive about anything — even those with whom we work.

Learning to Say "No"

Learning to Say "No" | INTRODUCTION TO THE SOCIAL SCIENCES DIGITAL TEXTBOOK(PSYCHOLOGY-ECONOMICS-SOCIOLOGY):MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it

I’ve made my share of good decisions during my career. But, as far as time management goes, I freely admit my struggles. Last year I drafted the post The Ugly Truth About Time Management, (partially based on my own relationship with time). Interestingly, it has been the most well read post at The Office Blend. Which leads me to believe that time — and our relationship with it — is a universal challenge.

I found this article really helpful and relevant because I agreed to be in an extracurricular group despite my busy schedule between work, school, and rehearsal. I have to say no. This piece describes the reasons as to why people don't say no. It may be internal such as "I'm saying yes because I'm nice/don't want to miss out." They could also be external forces that "need" your help. Saying no does not mean you are weak, it just means you know your limits.

‘Arbejdsglaede’: The Art of Being Happy At Work

‘Arbejdsglaede’: The Art of Being Happy At Work | INTRODUCTION TO THE SOCIAL SCIENCES DIGITAL TEXTBOOK(PSYCHOLOGY-ECONOMICS-SOCIOLOGY):MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it
‘Arbejdsglaede’, a word found only in Scandinavia, is something that should be implemented in every workplace around the world.

 

The word, which means ‘happiness at work’ is a rare phenomenon not found in every language. It teaches us about how being happy at work can lead to success, and that instead of chasing success at work, it is instead important to do what makes us happy, as success will evidently follow
