People influence you and you influence other people. It happens all the time all day long. What is so interesting is that it often happens in ways you are unaware of. Matthew Jackson is a professor of Economics at Stanford University and author of a new book called The Human Network: How Your Social Position Determines Your Power, Beliefs and Behaviors https://amzn.to/2EvVfJY joins me to offer some fascinating insight into how you influence others and they – you.

Liz Fosslien, author of the book No Hard Feelings: The Secret Power of Embracing Emotions at Work https://amzn.to/2BY8zFn says the problem is that emotions are in the workplace and they can cause big problems.

Against the Grain

The section about how people get jobs was only partly informed, and shows why a lot of these companies you speak of tend to not diversify, and often get in trouble.
