  • 3 Ways to Prep Your Company’s Internal Tech for Digital Natives

    Written by: Kevin Yamazaki | November 9, 2016

    digital natives

    Tech-savvy and used to multitasking, people with the Millennial mindset are always plugged into some sort of device, and they are incredibly fickle and impatient when it comes to the design, efficiency, and user experience of a digital product. If they don’t like it, they won’t use it. But it’s not their fault. Hypercompetition and the power of choice are major contributing factors. There are multiple software-as-a-service products for any need you might have, and they’re only a click or two away (and often free)…. Read More»


  • Why You Need to Pay More Attention to Your Conscious Bias

    Written by: Thuy Sindell | November 8, 2016

    conscious bias

    We often hear about unconscious biases, why we need to be aware of them, how to discover them, and how to eliminate them. But what about conscious biases? How do we manage those? We focus on an unconscious bias because it sounds nicer than conscious bias. It’s not our fault; we’re not doing it on purpose. More interestingly, as a Skyline Group International colleague, Laura Taylor, put it: what about acknowledging you made your conscious bias unconscious because of denial or guilt?… Read More»

  • A Political Argument for Increased Business Morality

    Written by: Dana Theus | October 26, 2016

    business morality

    I’ve always been cautious about mixing social morality and business morality.

  • Wells Fargo: An Object Lesson in the Connection Between the Employee Experience and the Customer Experience

    Written by: Matthew Wride | October 20, 2016

    employee experience

Instead of creating an employee experience aligned with Wells Fargo’s values, they created an environment where employees who missed their targets had to work overtime or on the weekends….

    Written by: Kyle Ferguson | October 19, 2016

    business intelligence

    Business intelligence departments are the visionaries of organizations. They’re focused on the next generation of products. So they often don’t feel a need to be in constant contact with IT or marketing teams. Likewise, the IT and marketing employees tend to stick to their own departments, preferring to work and socialize with those who are cut from the same professional cloth. Most leaders see this separation as a positive one; they think a little competition among departments improves performance. But that bias, grouping like with like, is also what drives us to create silos in our businesses, and it’s a habit we need to break…. Read 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.
