As I started reading Originals, its overarching theme about "How Non-Conformists Move The World" challenges some common assumptions made about innovators, disruptors and leaders. I figured only a non-conformist would recommend others read this book so instead I'll provide three reasons why you should not read Originals.

On the way to an appointment the other day I heard two teenage girls discussing Valentine's Day. One was distraught because her boyfriend had just broken up with her and the other was worried about th...

If you want to live a fully successful life, you need to plan out time to do absolutely nothing. That's the message Arianna Huffington shared with audiences in Toronto on Tuesday, at The Art Of Leader...
It was the year 2000. I was at my first 'real' job with a major international company. I thought this is my time, my career would finally be launching and I would be living the professional life, having it all. Instead, I worked long hours, gained weight and was under a tremendous amount of stress. A few months later, I ended up taking a stress leave from the job.
Arianna Huffington is on a quest to redefine success and change the way we work. Though change is needed for both men and women, Huffington says, it's women who will get this movement off the ground....

When you hear the word "cloud", what's the first thing that comes to your mind? In our technology driven world, I imagine that many immediately think of "cloud" in relation to the internet; a generall...
Somewhere between the dialogues of Ancient Greece and today’s hyper-connected age, we have defined success the wrong way, says Arianna Huffington, chair, president and editor-in-chief of The Huffingto...

"Where do you get off thinking you'll be successful? You'll never make it!" screams a critical voice into your already uncertain head. Arianna Huffington calls it "the obnoxious roommate in your head" that causes you to doubt yourself and question all your actions and decisions. Here's a few strategies for dealing with her.
I sought to find my inner force through Institute B's second Changemakers workshop on "Authentic Leadership". Institute B is a Vancouver-based startup accelerator that provides guidance, funding and education to local entrepreneurs and their nascent companies. Institute B focuses on helping socially-conscious companies and people whom do not sacrifice making the world better for profit.
What I learned from Arianna is that the risk of burning out is far greater than the risk of not growing fast enough or not agreeing to unrealistic deadlines. So, I'm committing to far fewer late nights at work. I'm committing to grow my business while taking better care of myself and my family.
If you’ve ever felt burdened by an uncompleted project, one that you know deep down you’ll never get around to, Arianna Huffington has some welcome advice. "Did you know that you can complete a projec...
While the philosophy of why we work continues to evolve and modernize, it still feels like we hold on to the dogma of what business is supposed to be. Perhaps with all of this moral awakening, sharing on social media, connecting to others and events like Occupy Wall Street or the Arab Spring, we should be paying closer attention to the human bottom line rather than the financial one?
What caught my attention this week? Marissa Mayer's declaration that Yahoo! employees must come to work, some nutrition month stats, OTT parenting products, Facebook and a new app that measures your stress level.
So declared our main news splash on Thursday, announcing the birth of two new regional editions of HuffPost, in Alberta and British Columbia. As other major media organizations across the country lay off staff and shutter their presses, HuffPost's expansion west is good news -- great news -- for readers who are rapidly running out of sources of local news and opinion.
Meanwhile it's starting to feel a lot like Christmas -- which is a parent's way of saying it's Back to School time. I need advice on how to a contrive a sympathetic and sorrowful look on my face when my kids and I bump into the stacks of school supplies at the mall. My impulse is to shout, "YES!"
It may not be the ultimate cure for western alienation, but The Huffington Post Canada took a big step in recognizing the importance of its Western Canadian readership with the launch of Alberta and B...

I am still on a high from meeting a true pioneer and leader in her field, Arianna Huffington. This woman is the real deal. When you talk to her, you can feel her energy. She gives you direct eye contact (which I love), a firm handshake, and lets you know she hears you. Arianna is open and oozes creativity. It is palpable.
Well, it was quite the week -- beginning with a showy demonstration of fireworks for the visiting Royals and ending with demonstrations by thousands of student protestors in downtown Montreal. In between, HuffPost Canada celebrated its first birthday with quite the party. Our own royalty, HRH Arianna was, in attendance -- and our blogger, Lord Black, made his first big public appearance since being released from prison on May 4.
On Wednesday night, a very smart crowd came out to fête The Huffington Post as it celebrated a year in Canada. While some guests were busy partaking in the many activity stations that filled AOL Canad...
What a birthday celebration that was! The true definition of a cocktail mixer ... a superb and beautifully balanced blend of present and past political leaders, artists, publishers, prominent Bay Streeters, celebrated journalists, social entrepreneurs, dreamy young interns, our very own national corporate celebrity felon and -- of course -- the one and only Arianna Huffington.
The Huffington Post is a disruptor. A year after we launched, I can confidently say the readers are coming: As of April, 2.9 million Canadians visited Huffington Post sites to the tune of 415 million page views. We have a tone and personality, and it helps us connect to our audience. It is part of our identity and I think you love us for that.
