Has Your Vision Statement Lost Its Focus?

COMPANY vision statements have been a key tool for leaders over the past several decades, but the traditional vison statement does not connect with the wave of new workers. Further, when asked, many senior leaders struggle to remember their organization’s vision. I started observing how vision statements were losing focus several years ago. I was touring a large manufacturing company and, as I walked through the office, there was a gigantic display of their vision statement on the wall. I comp...

Nothing to See Here

March (iPhone+Filters)/September (Fuji) In March, I started taking a selfie once a week. Okay, I really started taking selfies back in November, 2019 (literally a hundred years ago, right?) when I signed up for . Selfies are the currency of online dating and I needed good ones if I was going to play that game. Then Corona came and dating is an impossible task. But I kept taking the selfies. At first, I was trying to get used to the idea of the mask. I was teaching myself how to make them and...

Can we put our discord and divisiveness to the side for one day and remember that we are all American?

It's September 11th, a day to reflect on what we value about our country and what we have together, to step back and see that we are only one disaster away from feeling all the love for each other we felt that day, 19 years ago. It's all still there. Only our small focus on the petty conflicts of the day keeps us from seeing the great treasure that is the United States of America. [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]

Show that gave us Kim, Kylie and Kendall is ending after 14 years, leaving behind a Kardashianised world The first time the Kardashian family’s private life became part of the public conversation was not in their reality TV show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians (known as KUWTK), which turned them into global phenomena and will, it was announced this week, end after 14 years and 20 seasons.

Trump says deadline for TikTok sale won’t be extended

The United States government will not extend the September 20 deadline for Beijing-based ByteDance to sell TikTok, President Donald Trump said on Thursday. This adds urgency to negotiations because TikTok may be banned in the United States if it can’t reach an agreement with a buyer. “We’ll see what happens. It’ll either be closed up or they’ll sell it,” Trump said before boarding Air Force One at Joint Base Andrews. Some analysts had predicted that the deadline would be extended because o...
