Top five personnel mistakes ...

I agree Daniel - what most employers don't realize is that the is a 3 to 12 times difference in productivity of employees - and start-up often make the mistake of hiring too many people when selecting a few high performing employees would save thousands of dollars. Interviewing is not an intuitive process and way too many leaders think they will know it when they see it and they make those pesky hiring mistakes. By Stephen Moulton on 2014 12 05

Social media is hurting your business

Good article Liz - well said. It's so easy to focus on "I must do social media... whatever that means." Rather than thinking through an effective social media strategy that complements a strong sales team. By Gale Dunlap on 2014 12 04

The futurist: The rise of the trillionaires

Well, I think $1T in net assets for an individual could be achieved by a combination of inflation, new business models, and incredible investing, given the US GDP was only $16.8T in 2013, it will probably take a large expansion in the overall economy. If you look at many of the great fortunes, they are related to new industries and new business models in a period of an expanding economy. $1T in annual personal income seems much less likely. As for drones that "never have to come back down", that is probably in the realm on science fiction as there will be an eventual need to land for maintenance unless you have solar powered Star Trek replicators to make parts and robotic repair.

How to inspire loyalty and retention

Couldn't agree more with you Kathleen! Being an entrepreneur in customer service industry I often come across disgruntled customers looking to get a good service on a product they purchased from a company. Often root of the problem is not the "faulty product" but company's unwillingness to fix the problem By UDontQ on 2014 12 01

The futurist: How to become a star

Vincent Van Gogh did not cut off his ear to grand stand. Banksy is not grandstanding. He is anonymous. Grand Standing is a deliberate act and most of the people listed became famous as a matter of chance and talent, not deliberate acts of grand standing. Grandstanding is to perform in a way to impress others. Banksy is making statements about society. He is not trying to impress anyone. Van Gogh they speculate either was mentally ill or had a seizure when cutting off his ear. I am not sure how you can position yourself for a lightening bolt of fame. The solar roadways also seem to be a fluke not a well executed example of self promotion. Did they pay George Takei to tweet this? Chance is more like it. By Elizabeth on 2014 11 24
