by Steve Farber - Nov, 2014
It’s the oldest skill in the management texts: listen to your employees. Seek their input. But it’s not enough to ask for feedback; you have to be genuinely interested in the response—especially if you think you won’t like it.

by Marshall Goldsmith - Nov, 2014
“The great majority of people tend to focus downward. They are occupied with efforts rather than results. They worry over what the organization and their superiors ‘owe’ them and should do for them. And they are conscious above all of the authority they ‘should have.’ As a result they render themselves ineffectual.”—Peter Drucker You can make a positive difference, even when you do not have direct line authority. Here ar...

Do Your Colleagues See You the Same Way You Do?
by Dale Kurow, M.S. - Aug, 2014
Have you heard the saying that goes something like this: if you don’t know who the office jerk is, it’s probably you?

by Robin Fisher Roffer - Dec, 2013
Quality and customer service are no longer differentiators. Innovation is what creates a sustainable competitive advantage. I’m feeling like the word “marketing” should be retired. I know this may sound like blasphemy to most of you, but what I see driving success in large corporations and in small businesses is not traditional marketing, it’s culture.
