But are they having meetings about rainbows?
In at least one way, the esteemed executives who lead the world’s most powerful companies are just like you and me: They get bored at meetings. Particularly at corporate board meetings jammed with mind-numbing show-and-tell from management, sta...

Organizations spend a lot of time, energy, and effort into crafting communications that are clear, informative, and well targeted toward its intended audience. It’s important, especially during critical events, that the messenger doesn’t overshadow the message.

How many times have well-intentioned communications been diluted or derailed because the manner in which they were transmitted (by human or other means) was faulty?

This has +Steve Levy's name written all over it... 

"Shawn Feeney, who has bright-blue eyes (in terms of rock stars, he looks like Billy Corgan), does Web, app, and logo design. “I also do freehand vegetable carving,” he said. He’s a world-renowned pumpkin carver, who’s in the Guinness Book of World Records for Largest Fruit Sculpture. He has carved jack-o’-lanterns for George Lucas and the White House."

"Andrew Price and Matt Wood, who are part of a three-person team called Arsenal, looked like geeky lumberjacks, in flannel shirts and work boots. They are user-interface specialists, who worked on Shopping Express, Google’s FreshDirect competitor. In their spare time, they make furniture."

"Todd Siegel is an iOS developer—he designs and creates prototypes for mobile applications. Tall and shy, with a baby face and a few long, dark strands of hair swept to one side, he runs a poetry-reading series. “I’m kind of a wordsmith,” he said."

They don't have meetings about rainbows.

My thoughts on rainbows, being invisible, and workplace culture.
I was at a Director’s meeting with a client recently. As normal, the discussion centered around business needs—budget concerns, ongoing issues, deadlines that needed to be met, blah blah blah. In the...

If you type "HR, seeking new opportunities" into the LinkedIn keyword search field, you get a lot of HR pros looking to make their next big leap forward. Yet when you review their profiles, very few have their contact information readily available, among other (in my mind) basic profile configurations.

I'm not suggesting that LinkedIn is the be-all-end-all in gaining employment, but what can job seekers do better with it in order to tip the odds (of finding a job) in their favor?

HR and comics--yes, there's a connection!
By +Victorio Milian  Growing up, I was a big comic book geek. Whatever money I had I would spend at the comic book shop, buying a variety of titles. And I come by it honestly--my mother enjoyed them as well. She would tel...
