The Myth of Overnight Success
Feb. 10, 2010 - By: Barrie Bergman
“Most of us are seduced by the idea of overnight success. We want to believe the myth that success is easy to come by. But success in business takes time, energy and hard work—lots of all three. Personally, I’ve never met an overnight success. I’ve met people who’ve done something well for a long time and were suddenly discovered. Then every
The Best Communicator in the World
Feb. 10, 2010 - By: Jon Wortmann
“I hear people every day offer very valid excuses why they don’t try to improve how they communicate. Some people think it’s too hard. Others don’t know where to go for help. The most repeated excuse from people at work and in their personal lives that could be so much happier with some focused, intentional new habits: ‘I don’t have time.’
Brainwashed: Seven Ways to Reinvent Yourself
Jan. 13, 2010 - By: Seth Godin
“Years ago, when you were about four years old, the system set out to persuade you of something that isn’t true. Not just persuade, but drill, practice, reinforce, and yes, brainwash.

Beyond Sink or Swim: The Case for Accelerating Leadership Transitions
Jan. 13, 2010 - By: Michael Watkins and Doug Soo Hoo
“Given the magnitude of the overall organizational impact, it is surprising how few companies invest in helping their precious leadership assets to succeed during transitions—the most critical junctures in their careers. A few companies (GE, for example) explicitly train their managers how to ta
The Creativist Manifesto: Consumer or Creativist?
Jan. 13, 2010 - By: Olivia Sprinkel
“I believe that the most significant choice that we can make in today’s society is to be a Consumer or to be a Creativist.

The World on Reset
Dec. 10, 2009 - By: John Hope Bryant
“I keep saying that this is not a recession, it is a reset. What amazes me is how many brilliant people I know, in the US and around the world, who either don’t see it as anything more than a recession, or who don’t want to. No one really argues with me when I say it, but more so, simply want to turn away; hoping that by turning the mental page, somehow t

Chief Culture Officer: Building a Living, Breathing Corporation
Dec. 10, 2009 - By: Grant McCracken
“The American corporation is bad at culture. It’s good at management, finance, technology, and HR. It’s getting better at innovation, cocreation and social media. But culture? It still pretty much sucks at culture. Culture is the ‘last mile’ for the corporation. It’s the final ‘core competence’ require
Brands Are People Too
Dec. 10, 2009 - By: Joy Panos Stauber
“When you talk about ‘branding,’ you are not discussing a superficial activity. More and more business people are finally starting to understand that.

Instead, a brand begins to exist when a business has something to offer to the wor
