1. 7 ways to move a conversation from negative to positive
Among friends and colleagues alike, conversations can be full of negativity. Whether it's an offhand comment or a lengthy discussion, pessimism can ruin your mood for the rest of the day.

2. Is healthcare transformation 'the age of wisdom' or the 'winter of despair' for hospitals?
As with most major shifts — political, economic, social or otherwise — there will always be both winners and losers. There will be success and there will be failure. There will be those who celebrate the new direction, and those who mourn the passing of an era they loved.

We all use first impressions to guide our perceptions of other people. One would think the professional experience, business acumen and leadership ability of CEOs would prevent us from judging them on looks alone. However, this is not the case.

4. Why Bill Gates and Warren Buffett are best friends
On July 5, 1991, two legendary leaders and innovators — Warren Buffett and Bill Gates — met for the first time, according to Tech Insider.

A VitalSmarts study of nearly 1,000 managers found that 97 percent have at least one career-limiting habit — behavior that prevents us from achieving greater success or satisfaction in our career, Joseph Grenny, New York Times bestselling author and cofounder of VitalSmarts, wrote in the Harvard Business Review. The same study found that while most people are aware of the deficiency that is holding them back, few make much progress in ever overcoming it.
