Is a recent firing weighing on you? Do performance reviews fill you with anxiety? Could a lateral move help your career? If you need help dealing with these workplace scenarios or need to advise others, you may want to check out the Dear HBR podcast.
Co-hosted by Harvard Business Review Editors Alison Beard and Dan McGinn, each episode explores solutions to real-world dilemmas affecting organizations, bolstered by insights from guests and academic research. For example, during an episode on generational conflicts, Beard and McGinn answer questions with the help of Jennifer Deal, a researcher at the Center for Creative Leadership and the author of What Millennials Want from Work. They talk through what to do when you're struggling with an older colleague or managing a much older worker, as well as how to motivate younger employees who seem lax on the job.
Another episode has Whitney Johnson, the author of Disrupt Yourself: Putting the Power of Disruptive Innovation to Work, examine what to do when you've trained for one career and long for another; you reenter the workforce after a long gap; and you want to move into management.
