What Rumors Say About Your leadership Skills

Rumors are the product of a vacuum. And they don’t start as rumors, they start as conjecture. Staff are smart, they think about what may be going on and consider the possibilities.

Lessons Learned from the Shark Tank

Lessons Learned from the Shark Tank

If you watch the Shark Tank  (or it’s Canadian equivalent, Dragon’s Den), you might cringe like I do when participants are torn to shreds by the Sharks.

Pay For Performance Gone Wrong

Pay For Performance Gone Wrong
