If you are sure you did not do anything to warrant the silent treatment, resist the temptation to blame yourself, consider it her problem and leave her alone. Easier said than done, but doable! Do not give the situation more attention than it deserves by involving your boss, and ensure that it has no effect on your productivity. You will be fine.

As a start-up adviser, how do you cultivate environments where innovation, creativity, and motivation thrive?
Hello Erin, great question. The first necessary ingredient is the creation of a heterogenous team, and if possible across all dimensions. Am talking about socio-economic, gender, sexual-orientation, ethnicity, age, and so on. The second important ingredient is for all team members to recognize that each one of them as something unique to contribute. If these two conditions are met, then there will be a safe environment where team members feel free to share their ideas. At that point creativity will start to germinate.

What are you looking for when you hire Gen Y employees?
Um, it's very interesting, I'm looking for someone, and this is interesting, I do this with men and women but it is similar to the advice on women. I'm looking for someone who has done their work and is talking about what they're going to do for the organization, not what it's gonna do for them. Because when you're an organization and you're hiring, of course we want to develop people but that's not our primary concern. Our primary concern is building our organization. So the best hiring story is of my career, it's in my book, is a woman named Lori Goehler, when I first went to Facebook, called me, and she – I knew her socially but not very well—she said I want to come and apply to work for you at Facebook. So I was gonna call and tell you all the things I'm good at and all the things I like to do and what my goals are. But I figured everyone's doing that. So I want to know what's your biggest problem, and can I solve it? I thought you're hired. My biggest problem is recruiting. She was in marketing and she can solve it. and she's been running recruiting and HR at Facebook brilliantly for five years. and when we go look for a job we have to remember it's not about us, it's about them. You've done your homework, you understand what you can contribute, you can articulate why you're gonna make that organization succeed and you can also of course have the conversation about what's in it for you. But one of the things that is interesting about the Gen Y generation and the millennial generation is that they tend to lead more than my generation did about what is in it for them. And that's not a great way to get hired. A great way to get hired is to focus on why the person across the table should hire you.

I just read about your email autoreponse. Can you share how that has helped or offer other advice for making the most of our precious time?
Time is our most precious and valuable resource! Develop self-awareness around your most productive times of the day. For me, my productive time is in the morning - so as a matter of productivity, I do not schedule meetings before noon. I also find "coffee meetings" inefficient. I find that a 15 minute call keeps the conversation laser focused. Behind all of this is having a goal and focus - you can manage your time if you know what your priorities are. I also gave some tips on time management / organizational tools in my SharpHeels "In Conversation With" interview: http://sharpheels.com/2015/01/in-conversation-with-31/ Q: Which productivity tools (app/software/office supplies) do I use most often? Me: Teux Deux, Feedly, Calendly, Red Stamp, plus Post-It Notes and Sharpies. Confession: I love a paper calendar — and this year’s is from Holstee. Q: Part of the trick to staying focused is? Me: Just doing it! Ok, not really. Setting achievable milestones/task lists. And recognizing what time of day you’re at your most productive, and then guarding that time ferociously against the encroachment of non-urgent calls/meetings

For me it's numbers 6 and 7. I have my own business too and I only HOPE I'm spending my money on it as cost-effectively as possible, and restaurants- don't let me get started with how much I love food! :-)

I love what her mum told her and her definition of success including living a fabulous life (however we define that as individuals) which brings us happiness, time spent with friends and doing things we love.

As a minority woman, How do I stand out in the workplace?
Devin, Your question is the answer. As a minority woman you already stand out...for better or worse, so make it count. Eyes are on you because there are few of you/us. In every meeting, presentation, and conversation you will already stand out. It's what you do with that spotlight which will determine what happens next. SHINE BRIGHT!

Hi Emily- I am currently a senior and I am interested in pursuing a job in communications. Any post-grad advice would be great! Thanks!
Hi Amanda - a senior in college? Then I'd strongly suggest getting out there and lining up a couple internships at a couple of firms you might be interested in working at post-graduation. Depending on the type of firm you want to work for, I'd say lining up one for your last semester (for school credit, if necessary), and one more paying one this summer would be the way to go. You can learn, test your interests and make valuable connections.

I've often found that (for myself included) what appears to be a tense work relationship actually has nothing to do with work. If she's professional, she may be choosing to avoid dragging her personal problems into work, but that doesn't mean we can always completely separate ourselves. Either way, you've given her the opportunity to talk, if she wants to, she will. Lunch is a great idea, or even just go grab some coffee from the local Starbucks. I would say that 8 out of 10 times I see this stuff going on, it has nothing to do with you, but something else going on in that person's life elsewhere.

When changing career paths, what kind of proactive steps towards setting yourself up for a successful future should you take?
Whether changing career paths or not, I've found the most important step is connecting with people...a lot of them. Doing informational interviews, then asking each person for one or two more individuals they could introduce you to, gets you connected really fast. Also, I just read a phenomenal mag article in ESSENCE called The 3rd Act that had incredible advice for career transitions. It's obviously targeted toward black women but just ignore that part, Scott, and follow the advice. It works!
