The Key to Resilience? A Positive Outlook
Nov. 14, 2018 - By: Laurie J. Cameron

Playing Fair While Creating and Unfair Advantage
Nov. 14, 2018 - By: Anthony Iannarino
“Taking a client away from your competition is no mean feat. You have to create greater value, capture hearts and minds, and provide your dream client with a compelling reason to change. It isn’t easy to do, but there is no other way to grow at 10% in a market that is growing at 2.7%. Play fair and create an unfair advantage by becoming the best to play the game.”
Defy Ordinary, Exploit Imperfection, and Captivate your Customers
Nov. 14, 2018 - By: Stan Phelps & David Rendall
“As we look at what successful companies are doing, it’s natural to emulate them. This has even been institutionalized in the process of benchmarking. … The problem is that when everyone in an industry starts copying the leaders, then, over time, the entire industry starts to look the same, feel the same, and sound the same. There are no differences. Nothing distinguishes one brand from another.”

Nov. 14, 2018 - By: Tom Triumph
“It really comes down to a decision.

The journey is difficult, but the direction is clear. Evolve or die.”

Oct. 10, 2018 - By: Drew Dudley

Don’t Stress: When Doing and Spending Less Can Help Your Business Get Ahead
Oct. 10, 2018 - By: Stephen Wunker & Jennifer Luo Law
“Innovation doesn’t always have to be more—more flavors, more horsepower, more memory space, more bells and whistles. New solutions can excel in their simplicity, earning customer love and saving money along the way—and, yes, that is just as deserving of being called 'innovative' as a new blockchain game or genetic therapy.”
The Forgotten Diversity Group: Ambitious Women Who Want to Lean “In-Between”
Oct. 10, 2018 - By: Kathryn Sollmann
“Diversity and inclusion is a hot topic on corporate agendas these days, but despite the best efforts of employers, a large group of women are feeling left out. When it comes to leadership training, employers are still pressuring women to conform to one profile of an ambitious and successful woman.”
The Secret to an Engaged Workforce (That Shouldn’t Be So Secret)
Oct. 10, 2018 - By: Aron Ain
“Everyone deserves a great manager—a boss who will inspire, support, and empower them to do their best work. Great managers are a practical necessity.
