Business as War and Personality as a Weapon

It's been a very long time since I played chess, but I'll never forget learning. I was in high school and my father taught me at home. He had never mentioned it before, but one day he simply decided to reveal the rules to me. I had never seen him play it, and in the end he wasn't very good, but I figured there was a reason he suddenly decided it would be good for me to know the rules too. And that was the point - knowing the rules, not winning a particular game. Practice would take care of the rest.

How to Win by Surrendering

Words are important. What they mean and how we use them can get you a job, or send you into bankruptcy. They can cause the end of a date to find you in the arms of a woman, or trudging home in the cold, bitterly. They can even make the difference between living for years in a certainty that you are no good, worthless, a loser who is never going to win the career, the woman, or the life you dare not think you deserve, and actually having those things.

If you didn't believe words were important in this way, you likely wouldn't be reading this magazine.

Losing Your Job in Style

One of those things about life that's bittersweet is that endings do come, but when they do, you can be truly free to say and be who you really are.
I have a rare opportunity as a friend this week as opposed to being an “expert.” A friend of mine lost a job, so it’s time to step in to help like a buddy does. It's not a time for sciency stuff and "how-to" advice. That can all come later, but for now, we can all learn from this primal experience men have.

Three Master Moves in the Workplace

Most people have heard of the term, "acting out," when it comes to bad behavior, errors in social politics, and your embarrassing uncle who comes to Thanksgiving dinner once a year, but it is exceptionally powerful for you to define this term in a new way and harness the power of "seeing psychology" in your career moves through the Men's Psychology Mature Masculine Power Program.

Crucial Phrases for Men - With Women and Work

I have a very odd friend. He texts people to ask if they would like to meet up to do some social events, and he writes to them such things as, "I'd be delighted if you could join me at..." The same evening or at the latest, the next morning, he tells them "what a great pleasure it was to meet up." Wait. Maybe the fact that he does this is not "typical," but perhaps it's what "normal" really is, or should be. At the very least, it is a habit of courtesy, and at its best, it's very POWERFUL.
