College Grads: Living with your parents
by Hallie Crawford - Jan, 2011

With a rough economy and a tough job market, college grads often find relief by moving back in with their parents after college graduation. It is becoming an increasingly popular action for young adults (maybe not such good news for parents of college grads though). Moving back home after college graduation can be a good thing (bear with me pare...

by Elizabeth Freedman - Jan, 2011
Let’s imagine you work for a company called, “Counting the Minutes Until Quittin’ Time,” or “I Really Wish It Was the Weekend So I Wouldn’t Have to Be Here” This is what I found myself wondering at an airport T.G.I. Friday’s the other week, eating a Tropical Splash Salad (so good) and being served by a very courteous, efficient gentleman named Evan. Sure, the operation seemed to be running smoothly, and given the number of...
Is Your Professional Brand as Strong as Starbucks?
by Barbara Safani - Jan, 2011
Starbucks just unveiled their new logo featuring their well-known green siren but with one dramatic change – the words “Starbucks Coffee” have been dropped from the logo. At first I thought, “What the heck? Why would a company drop their name from their logo? How is that a sound marketing strategy?” But then I thought about it. Maybe it’s an act of shear brilliance.

Leadership Charisma and Employee Engagement
by Eva Jenkins - Jan, 2011
Background on Charisma Arthur C. Clarke famously said, “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” It is a classic human tendency to describe anything we do not fully understand in magical or mystical terms.

What Do You Want to Be Known For?
by Alexandra Levit - Jan, 2011
My friend Tim Ferriss just released his new book, The 4-Hour Body. It contains lots of tantalizing body hacking strategies from losing 20 pounds in a month without exercise to reversing permanent injuries. More intriguing than the book itself is how Tim intends to keep it on the bestseller lists for the better part of this year.
