Executive Sessions and Continuous Feedback

I’ve written about these two related but different topics before but I’ve been doing a lot of board meetings as we kick off 2019 and I am reminded of how important both are. At the end of every board meeting, the board should meet alone with the CEO in an executive session, followed by a session without the CEO, followed by a session where at least one director, but possibly all of the directors, meet again with the CEO. This requires a fair bit of time to do right. These three back to bac...

It is still evolving and becoming increasingly complex as organizations seek to further add more diverse services to their contracts, all considered under the umbrella term “facilities management”.

Benefits of Building a Team That Has Your Back

By Keren Lerner I am a carrot rather than a stick leader. Often classified by friends as “too nice” to my team - compared to other business owners, I really am pretty easy going. Everyone knows I want to keep a good balance between happy clients and a happy team. This can on occasion cause issues, and I’ve been told I generally let people get away with too much. But I don’t feel like I am a total doormat, and I truly believe there’s a nice way to deal with almost every situation. To put it blunt...

How to Be Sure You’re Classifying Workers Correctly Under IRS Regulations

Employee or Contractor? By Rick Roddis Seems like a simple enough question. But the rules surrounding whether a worker is an employee or independent contractor are complex. And misclassification can lead to significant legal and financial troubles. Take the IRS, for example. It has a vested interest in how you classify. One of the goals of the agency is to maximize tax revenue. So the IRS wants to ensure you’re properly withholding and submitting employee taxes. If you’re not, you could owe back...

No matter which way you look at it the world of business is evolving fast, technology is developing at a rapid pace and it is likely that businesses will be fully digitalized within the next 5 – 8 years.

by Mark Green, author of “Activators: A CEO’s Guide to Clearer Thinking and Getting Things Done“ Bad habits can be hard to break, and for business leaders who have them, they can be deal-breakers. In a  survey  by Leadership IQ, an online training firm, the primary reasons CEOs were fired – mismanaging change, ignoring customers, tolerating low performers, and not enough action – were often related to unproductive habits.
