Is life experience a generally marketable asset?

Is life experience something we normally get opportunities to articulate in the workplace?

Is it OK to talk politics at work?

There are still those who think it improper or unprofessional to discuss politics (other than as it relates directly to the organisation’s policy) when at work.
