  • Never Let Others Define You. Never.

    Written by: Ted Coiné | April 29, 2012

    “I’m totally unemployable,” said my friend Johnny a while back. “Never!” agreed Neil. “I’m radioactive to any employer.” “Are you kidding? Me too!” chimed in another friend, Janet. The four of us were at a small party, a gathering of one of the nonprofit boards I used to belong to a while back. I love […] Read moreRead More»


  • Are You Sleepwalking through Life?

    Written by: Shawn Murphy | April 28, 2012

    As you stop in the moment to understand what’s happening around you, you realize that you’ve ended somewhere unplanned. You’ve found yourself in a place you’ve not imagined for yourself. You ask yourself, “How did I get here?*” The answer to the question is less important than why. Are you where you are in life […] Read moreRead More»


  • Fun at Work

    Written by: Ted Coiné | April 26, 2012

    I’m a huge proponent of having fun at work: it’s absolutely essential. It’s so important to me that one of my central tenants is In business, as in life, if it isn’t fun, you’re doing it wrong. This line is tacked up beside my desk – that’s how important it is to me. I want to […] Read moreRead More»


  • Why Servant Leadership Still Matters

    Written by: Shawn Murphy | April 25, 2012

    This is the first post of two.  In 1970 Robert Greenleaf wrote about servant leaders. He was the first. It was born out of his need to do something about a leadership crisis in the United States. It seems some things haven’t changed. Today with global awareness of societies and economies we know that the […] Read moreRead More»


  • 4 Traits of Motivational Leaders Who Keep It Real

    Written by: Meghan M Biro | April 24, 2012

    As someone who finds talent for a living I see leadership from both sides of the desk. I partner with leaders, many of them are VPS or CEOS, who are staffing up management ranks, or perhaps dealing with the difficult job of replacing a team member who isn’t working out. And I work tirelessly and […] Read moreRead More»


  • It Isn’t Them. It’s You.

    Written by: Ted Coiné | April 23, 2012

    The other day I retweeted a friend’s blog post before reading it, and I’d like to apologize. Not because it offended anyone: I didn’t receive any complaints, and a few folks even shared it with their networks. No, I’d like to apologize because the post offended me. I let myself down, sharing something that flies […] Read moreRead More»

    Written by: Shawn Murphy | April 21, 2012

    We wrap up our video interview series with author Les McKeown. Les shares what it takes for great teams to work well together using the analogy of choreography. When we can come together and anticipate what another teammate will do, where we need to go, we realize how much we do need each other to […] Read moreRead More»


  • Enterprise Commitment with Les McKeown

    Written by: Shawn Murphy | April 18, 2012

    21st century leaders keep their eye on purpose. They are relentless in guiding their team to align with purpose. Critical to these two tenets of leadership is the belief that the company’s interest are more important than our own. Perhaps this is a no brainer. Consider, however, the plentiful examples of executives who lost site […] Read moreRead More»


  • How to Work with Other Work Styles with Les McKeown

    Written by: Shawn Murphy | April 17, 2012

    Working with others who approach their work differently than you can lead to frustration, even team gridlock. Decisions don’t get made. Productivity suffers. Relationships fail. I’m a staunch believer that the workplace needs to be enjoyable. After all, we spend ⅓ of our adult life working. Don’t like your work? That’s a big part of […] Read moreRead More»

    There’s a more human way to do business.

    In the Social Age, it’s how we engage with customers, collaborators and strategic partners that matters; it’s how we create workplace optimism that sets us apart; it’s how we recruit, retain (and repel) employees that becomes our differentiator. This isn’t a “people first, profits second” movement, but a “profits as a direct result of putting people first” movement.
