Get Rid of Performance Reviews?!

Wednesday, October 29th, 2008

I really enjoyed this article in the Wall Street Journal about eliminating those awful annual performance appraisals.  Brought back all kinds of not-so pleasant memories along with validation for why we do what we do at Incite!

In pursuit of web fame

Thursday, October 23rd, 2008

I have to say, for anyone looking to expand their visibility on web, there’s definitely no shortage of opportunities. It’s mind boggling how much time and brain power you can invest into the various ways to promote your business online. At least we can say we’re working ON rather than IN our business, right?

Road Rules

Tuesday, October 21st, 2008

Any book entitled “Road Rules” would make an insatiable traveler like me curious.

Quote in Smart CEO Magazine!

Friday, October 10th, 2008

Great news! This month’s Smart CEO Magazine– both the DC and the Baltimore issues – have published my quote on CEO burnouts. Of course, the part of the interview they chose to publish was about my own burnout (rather than all the brilliant insights I’ve given clients over the years to battle theirs). The good news is that it might inspire other smart CEOs to follow my lead and take their own rejuvenating, refocusing vacations! Can you tell, I believe in leading (and vacationing) by example ;)
