How I Teach Men to Work with Women
By Will Marré

There is a growing recognition that considering a large number of diverse ideas will usually lead to better solutions than considering a small number of similar ideas. In problem-solving the model is divergence precedes convergence. That seems simple enough. But it turns out that relatively few people are good at actually listening to different opinions and ideas.

Combining Philanthropic Spirit with Professional Skills
By Monica Eaton-Cardone

Whether it's helping to feed those in need, cleaning up a local park, or mentoring younger kids, Americans overall contribute a fair amount of volunteer hours each year. Studies show more than 25% of Americans volunteer regularly, contributing a collective total of 7.9 billion charitable service hours, or $184 billion, each year. While it's great that so many people are willing to help out in whatever way they can, what nonprofit organizations really need are skills-based volunteers.

Thought Leader Spotlight: Michelle Caruso Cabrera
By Fatimah Gilliam

It might have been a twist of fate with my high school teacher, but I quickly realized how much I loved telling stories. When I was younger, I thought I was going to be a criminal psychiatrist. I thought it would be interesting to know what makes a criminal tick and why someone would do certain things. As a journalist, I have covered crime, but I also dig into why people make the decisions that they do.

It's the Law? Traffic Rules that May Surprise You

Where do quirky-sounding traffic laws come from? It's impossible to say in every case. City and state traffic codes are full of laws and ordinances that don't always make sense at first glance. "Constituents can go to their legislators and request new laws," says Duane Kokesch, director of the National Traffic Law Center. "If it matters only to a few constituents, legislators may pass the law without any opposition." Other laws have become outmoded, Kokesch explains, and removing them from the books may not be seen as worth the trouble.
