The Presidential Debates are almost over. I wish they would talk more about how exciting and dynamic the new employee economy can be. I wish they would tell us what they are going to do to make sure we have an economy where individuals can thrive (as opposed to stale old structures). Sure there are jobs be created again in manufacturing - but that is just plugging holes.
They will talk back and forth about a myriad of ideas. And certainly they will talk about jobs. They will talk…Continue

In a world where seemingly everyone has gotten involved in Social Media (still hate that term), is it odd when you run across someone who is not? I am not talking about someone in their 80s, but someone in today’s work-a-day world. Certainly there are many people who do not feel they have time, or who may feel that their personal involvement in social or professional networks adds little value to either their professional standing or their company’s performance. But isn't this a dying breed?…Continue

How have you advanced as a software developer, a health care provider, a manager or leader? Are those skills relevant to the challenge your company faces? Skill Path, especially for specialized skill…Continue

Last week, I conducted a workshop at Staffing World in Las Vegas where we discussed how creating the “yet” is one of the most important jobs in sales. What does it mean to create the yet? First, you listen for the yet moments from prospective buyers, which often come in four common variations:

From websites to collateral material to social media, there are many opinions as to which one is the best marketing approach. It’s much, much simpler than that – just do great work.
