Combining people with different personalities and skillsets is often seen as a must for driving innovation and responding to a wide variety of customer demands in a globalized world. Organizational leaders should be aware, however, that diverse personalities in the workplace can be a double-edged sword if poorly managed. On one hand, it could prove beneficial in numerous task-driven situations; on the other hand, it could take an emotional toll on employees who are different from the majority of their colleagues.

The battle to beat Monday morning blues is not a new one; but there has recently been an effort to find a new way to win it. Workplaces that long for employees who jump out of bed bustling with energy, ready to tackle the week ahead can now add corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives to their toolkit. They can focus on environmental sustainability or community-based corporate volunteerism programmes to provide an additional source of engagement beyond the traditional job routine.

China has embraced a new round of property-price growth since 2015. According to the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS), China's 70-city new home price index rose for 37 consecutive months from May 2015 to May 2018. During this period, new commodity housing prices (all housing prices below refer to new commodity housing prices) increased by a whopping 20.4% nationwide. Meanwhile, policymakers further stepped up property tightening, with new tightening measures introduced. There are six ways in which this round of price increases and tightening measures is different from previous measures. CEIBS Professor Sheng Songcheng, who is also Counsellor of Shanghai Municipal People’s Government and Counsellor at the People's Bank of China (PBoC), explains with his co-authors and looks at the impact of China’s skyrocketing real estate prices.
