Love Your Competitor

By David McNally, CEO, TransForm Corporation As an Aussie, I am still basking in the glow of the first Australian to win The Masters, the golf tournament regarded by many professionals as the pinnacle of achievement.

Advance Your Leadership Journey

By Sandra Davis, Ph.D. Pearl 1: The Leader You Will Be Tomorrow Is Not the Leader You Are Today Great leaders are on a “leadership journey.” They learn, grow, evolve, develop, and find new ways to lead in an ever-evolving leadership environment. While the oft-heard expression, “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks,” may subtly tempt us to opt out of active learning, we have an enormous capacity to change and develop. Becoming a better leader tomorrow means proactively striving to do so.

Make the Most of Your Talent

By Don Maruska and Jay Perry The world belongs to the talented, and that means you. Whether you’re the new kid in a cubicle, the boss in the executive suite, or you run your own business, you have huge potential for greater productivity and fulfillment. Even very high performers in excellent organizations—large and small, for profit and nonprofit—report that 30 to 40 percent of their talent is untapped. And that’s only the talent they know about. It doesn’t capture what they haven’t discovered yet.

By Jeanne O’Connor, Human Resource Manager, Billtrust “You never get a second chance to make a good first impression.” How many times have these 12 threadbare words been preached to job-seekers?
