Do business meetings scare you? Would you rather stare at the ceiling as if it were the most interesting thing in the world and avoid talking to people at social events? Don’t worry! You’re not the only one. The prospect of talking to people you don’t really know, freaks most people out. Knowing how to engage in small talk is necessary in business though. So, read up on how to improve your business conversation skills.
Your boss: the forbidden fruit in the Eden that is your office. We get it!

Here are a few things to remember to balance being respected and liked:
If you want your team to be happy and engaged, simply providing them with free food, bean bags, or gym membership discounts isn’t going to cut it. Sure, those things help but what really gets a team going even in the worst of times is a good employee-employer relationship. So, here are a few tips to strengthen the employee-employer bond, as well as the employee-employee bond:
