by Samantha Howland and Tim Muma - Nov, 2013
According to a poll done by Chief Executive magazine, seven out of 10 leaders say they do not consider themselves to be strategic thinkers.

| Employment Notebook - Early Recognition to Aid Retention
by Cord Himelstein and Tim Muma - Nov, 2013
It's no secret American workers are quick to leave one employer for another with the average job tenure less than five years and millenials barely staying beyond three. Cord Himelstein is the vice president of marketing and communications for Michael C. Fina, an employee recognition company, and he offers up an underutilized strategy. Cord argues companies need to recognize employees sooner and he gives Tim Muma some details o...

Does Gen Y Want to Run Your Company?
by Alexandra Levit - Oct, 2012
Bruce Tulgan is one of the top thinkers in the world of generational differences and intergenerational communication. In fact, he has served as a mentor to me in this space for the better part of a decade. On his blog, Bruce recently shared this scenario: At a major food conglomerate, summer interns are usually given an assignment, such as a big data-entry project, that they can complete during the course of their sum...
Executive Team Building – Establishing A Team Direction
by Shari Roth - Sep, 2011
One of the major roles of executive leadership is to build solid teams. Executive team building for results is grounded in knowing and understanding the direction of the team. The direction sets the stage for the purpose of the team and where the team is going. Without establishing a team direction you really don’t have a team at all. What you have is a bunch of individuals who are loosely affiliated but everyone goes off...
Back to the Future: Recruiting Circa 2020
by Lou Adler - Jul, 2011
As I ponder the future of where our industry is headed, I’m reminded of Geoffrey Moore’s technology adoption curve, from his fine book, Crossing the Chasm. It describes how users (aka “buyers”) of technology follow a predictable adoption rate, generally based on their comfort with the technology and their ability to implement change. It’s not surprising that technology, especially the use of advanced business networking to...

How Performance Reviews Brand the Reviewer
by Dawn Lennon - Apr, 2011
It's a draw. All the arguments about performance reviews are correct. The process can be fair or unfair, useful or a sham, legitimate or bogus. It all comes down to us-the reviewers. Do you care? For many supervisors, it's about the paper, not the process. We whine about writing comments, deciding on ratings, and holding those dreaded employee review meetings. We forget that performance reviews are about feedbac...
How to Orient A New Team Member
by Alexandra Levit - Apr, 2011
When I remember new hire orientations of jobs past, I think of watching cheesy, outdated videos, completing a marathon of poorly photocopied forms, and being escorted to an empty cubicle three hours before the end of the business day, left to wonder how I should pass the time until my new boss got back from an offsite meeting. I think about how homesick I was for the job I just left, how I’d had this sick feeling in my stomac...
