BYOB has been around forever. Bring Your Own Beer or Bring Your Own Booze has long been a staple of potluck party planning. Now the “BYO” designation has a new cousin, and its primary focus goes far beyond drinking. BYOD is here. What does the “D” stand for? If you have to ask, you know…more

Like Obama and Romney, you need to build a brand

“This is Mitt Obama and I approve this message.” Have you heard enough of that — for a lifetime? The season of campaign ads should be over by the time you read this or will be in a few days. After talking with business leaders in blue and red states, I believe we have learned…more

Eight characteristics to look for when hiring

Exciting change can include leaving something special behind. In my case, this meant saying goodbye to a boatload of memories and a block filled with great neighbors. The change?

Can you see problems through another’s eyes?

You must be “the change” that you desire in your organization.

Going virtual: managing in the work-at-home era

Fingers fleeting across keyboards, phones ringing, copy machines humming, bits of conversation drifting in from hallways — all spiked with occasional laughter.
