Courageous or Kamikaze?
by Suzanne Bates - Mar, 2010
I have a theory about why people say stupid things in meetings. Having said a few stupid things in my own career, I went searching for an answer that didn’t malign overall intelligence. So my theory is that most of the time when people say something dumb they’re doing it out of courage. They believe whatever they have to say has to be said. Of course it is important to encourage people to speak freely. If the CEO has not...
How To Research Your Way To a Networking Contact
by Miriam Salpeter - Mar, 2010
Is it socially acceptable to go up to random people on the street and invite them to coffee? Typically, no. You need to have a reason to meet, and it is up to you to come up with the reason before you do the inviting! Research is a key factor for successful networking.

Over-The-Top Customer Service!
by Julie Walraven - Mar, 2010
Last week I was in Baltimore at the Career Thought Leaders Conference. The food at the conference was great and the adventure continued with more restaurants to explore at night as well as during the extra day I planned in to explore Baltimore’s Inner Harbor with my friend, Linda, who came with me from Wausau.

The Strong Personality Safeguard
by David Lee - Mar, 2010
The Tale of a Smart Leader Just recently, while doing a program on recognizing and working with different personality styles for a management team, I heard a great example of self-awareness from the leader of the team.
