4 Ways to Attract High Performing Talent

If you had to put a price tag on your top sales executive, how much would they be worth? What about the web developer you struck gold with? Or, your all-star digital marketer? As the Harvard Business Review notes, a high performer is estimated to have a 400% higher productivity level than the average performer. Given the world of difference between quality talent and the rest of the workforce, employers that house an army of top performers will outdo competitors, enjoy elevated levels of human...

WIRTW #546 (the “Arrivederci” edition)

Today is good bye … but only for two weeks. My kids' school gives them that much time off for Spring Break each year. So we are headed to Italy. Rome and Florence to be precise. I'll be back on April 1 (no foolin') with some thoughts about what I learned on my Spring Break. In the meantime, if you have any last minute tips on what to do, see, or eat in either of these cities, drop a note in the comments below. Here's what I read this week: Discrimination Two-Percent, Schmoopercent — via Kate Bi...

Peter Principle (in Startups)

Is it true? The Peter principle states that “every employee tends to rise to his level of incompetence”. If someone is good at her job, she’ll be promoted into a job that demands different skills. If she’s good at the new job too, she’ll be promoted again, requiring yet another set of skills. One day, she will arrive at a job for which she is wholly unsuited, and there she will stick. Since when did a manager ever get sacked for anything?The Peter Principle is satire: it mocks managemen...

WIRTW #545 (the “International Women's Day” edition) #IWD2019

Happy International Women's Day! I didn't always consider myself a feminist. But I'm proud to call myself one ever since May 27, 2006—the day my daughter was born. It wasn't that I was hostile to the issue; I just never engaged in any active thought about it. Now that I have a female life for which I am responsible, I fully embrace the term. I worry about the world in which she lives, and how that world may treat her because of her sex. ❔ Will she have the same opportunities? ❔ Will she earn the...

A former Google exec has used a simple framework every time she's decided to switch jobs for the last 20 years

Making a career change can be intimidating. Gusto COO and ex-Googler Lexi Reese uses the same approach every time she switches jobs: Am I doing what I love, what I'm good at, and where I see a big need? Reese said it can be tough to decide, but ultimately you have to listen to your gut. Talk about a non-linear career path. Lexi Reese started out making documentary films, then worked in the sex crimes unit at the Manhattan district attorney's office, before moving on to management positions at...

Logo Color: Why It Is Important

There are several factors that will be influential to the success of your business. The quality of the products and services, location of the physical store, human resources, and timing are just some of the most crucial.   In most cases, people tend to focus on the bigger picture when talking about business success and they ignore the small details. Among others, one that you should not miss is the importance of a logo, which should speak about the personality of the business. More than the act...

Conquering Envy in Yourself

“Blessed is he who has learned to admire but not envy, to follow but not imitate, to praise but not flatter, and to lead but not manipulate.” ― William Arthur Ward What is envy? A natural reaction towards someone who is a winner. It is defined by the Oxford Concise Dictionary as “discontented or resentful longing aroused by another’s possessions, qualities or luck” – occurs in the workplace and in the social settings. Workplace Envy Workplace envy, as defined by Harvard Business Review, is t...

Harvard Business Review: How Retirement Can Change Your Identity

Studies show that people who are able to afford a full retirement – and who will also be healthy enough to enjoy it – are generally much happier in retirement since their working life is behind them, and they can instead spend their time doing the things they enjoy doing. However, when a critical component of a person’s identity – their work – is suddenly no longer a part of their personal equation, it requires a retiree to restructure their lives and bridge their former, working identity wit...

Tip of the Iceberg: A Story of Trust in Marketing as Told by Statistics

“Step up on the railing. Hold on, hold on. Keep your eyes closed.” Jack is holding Rose around her waist, cautiously lifting her up to the Titanic’s bow. “Do you trust me?” He was a stranger up until days earlier, but still, her response is almost instantaneous. “I trust you.” Moments later, Rose opens her eyes and she’s flying, arms outstretched as the mighty liner propels her forward. She and Jack hold hands; they kiss. Celine Dion’s music wafts in the background. Teenage boy...

A former Google exec has some counterintuitive advice for anyone who wants to be a good boss

A boss should warn employees that, at some point, they'll mess something up — and it's the employees' job to call them out on it. That's according to Gusto COO Lexi Reese. Reese also encourages managers to cut themselves some slack, letting their team know when they're under a lot of pressure and may not be the best version of themselves. We hear a lot about "authentic" leadership and about the importance of establishing trust in the workplace. Yet these concepts can easily seem vague, and fl...

WIRTW #541 (the “Purl” edition)

Purl is an online-only Pixar short about a ball of yarn appropriately named Purl who gets a job in a bro-tastic workplace. As the only female, and only ball of yarn, working at B.R.O. Capital, she struggles to fit and yearns for acceptance from her all male, all human, co-workers.

Sorry, self-driving cars won't make your Uber ride any cheaper

Ride-hailing, on average, costs about $3 per mile currently.  Industry watchers are hopeful that self-driving cars can bring that down by removing the drivers.  However, low utilization rates and expensive software might make that tricky to make happen in reality. Automakers like GM and Ford are banking on the the assumption that if they can lower the cost per mile of self-driving taxis to $1 or less, demand will skyrocket. But a new analysis  in the Harvard Business Review suggests their mod...

Why Do Your Customers Buy From You?

More than fifty years ago, Theodore Levitt published his seminal piece on Marketing Myopia in the Harvard Business Review. In it, he argued that firms too often take a narrow view of their business and as a result, miss opportunities that emerge and are eventually trounced by competitors that seize those opportunities. The railway companies, he argued, saw themselves in the rail business. As a result, they lost out on opportunities in air transport and truck transport that they could have exp...
