The other day I heard someone say that college was a waste of time in this economy and job market. I couldn't disagree more. While more and more people are obtaining jobs meant for those with a college degree, there is something to be said for the levels of networking and character building brought on through the college experience. No one, and I mean no one, should let their future be dictated by the current challenges of society. Society's needs change, the value of a good education does not.
Here's… Read more
I recently read an article on being creepy in general. I'll admit the headline grabbed me. As I started out to read a funny piece of web chatter, I really started to think about how many CEOs out there shared the same "creepy" qualities in an unintentional way.
I decided to jot down three things I see CEOs do on a daily basis that could be construed as creepy.
1. Talk about appearances. Don't be known as the boss who is always commenting on how people look. While you might… Read more
Business owners have to deal with a lot. There is the economy. There is the internal financial factor (are you making a profit?), and then there is the employee factor. A recent poll stated 23% of business owners lose sleep over employment issues at least once a week.

In a perfect world this suggestion would solve all of our problems. But it could create many problems, too. Think of the confidentiality clause issues you may have!
I would love to tell my clients (when interviewing a candidate) to throw him or her on a sales call or forklift. But what happens if they get hurt on the… Read more

I'm often asked about leadership. The topic is related to a variety of questions concerning how to hire the right people, when lack of experience is outweighed by educations, etc. While these are great questions, i'm usually more concerned about the people in leadership roles asking the questions.
Leadership is about tapping into a company's culture and moving it forward using subtle changes. It requires an internal dialogue and instinct to know what is right for the company and how to obtain it. And if you're not passion about what… Read more

If you are in charge of employees know that your ability to communicate is crucial. Many people don't exactly know how to communicate with employees, but can communicate with potential customers. Why is this? Well, I've decided to use today's blog to point out the top three ways I feel basic communication between employer and employee can be improved.
#1. Focus your conversations on one issue. Having a long meeting to discuss multiple topics sends a message that not a single topic is important enough to warrant its own meeting. … Read more
