    You Keep Using That Word “Creative”…

    Robert Half Technology and The Creative Group published a study and infographic, Digital Marketing Dissonance, where 4 in 10 CIOs say their company lacks the support needed for digital marketing projects.

    Reward with Autonomy, Mastery and Purpose

    Rewards. At a couple of my last jobs, my bosses were always shocked that I didn’t care about monetary rewards. It’s not that I didn’t want the money, it’s that I wasn’t motivated by it.

    Jack Welch is Wrong

    I’m so glad to finally see an article that questions the methods that Jack Welch evangelizes. I believe he’s inconsiderate, mean-spirited, selfish, and greedy. He was only successful by making customers and employees suffer. He may alone be a winner, but it was at the expense of many others who have lost. New RulesOld RulesAgile is best; being big can…
