Each week, I select a few articles that rise above the fray and hopefully help you on your journey in the CRE world. They pull from one of four “corners:” corporate real estate, technology, management science and anything positive. I welcome your comments on these articles and the submissions of others (with credit to you if I post them). I wish you a terrific week!

Why 30 Percent of Millennials Want to Ditch Their Employer Within a Year
“There is one thing (the)..survey doesn’t reveal–what it takes to keep Millennials from leaving. There is an answer–and it lies in how Millennials were raised. This is the first generation to be coached their entire lives. Raised on organized activities, they don’t see coaching as a sign of weakness but rather as a path to greatness.”

Your Business Trip Might Be Destroying Your Health
Traveling can be one big ‘sit’: – get your move on! “Most of the time, traveling requires little to no activity. Sitting in a car, train or airplane are pretty sedentary activities. When you’re traveling for business, you’ve also probably got quite a few meetings on the agenda—another sedentary activity.”

Great Leaders Replace Rules With Accountability
“So what is better than rules? How can we replace rules with something that still encourages the best behaviors? In a word: accountability.”

How to Make Your One-on-Ones with Employees More Productive
“One-on-one meetings with direct reports often feel more hurried and disorganized than they need to be. It’s important to check in regularly with each of your employees, but how can you make the best use of the time? How can you make the meetings more productive and collaborative? What do you need to change as the manager and what do you need to ask your direct report to do differently as well?”

3 Powerful Ways To Stay Positive
“The real obstacle to positivity is that our brains are hard-wired to look for and focus on threats. This survival mechanism served humankind well back when we were hunters and gatherers, living each day with the very real threat of being killed by someone or something in our immediate surroundings.”

Your success blesses others. I wish you a great a hugely impactful week!
