“Dorsey’s theme, whether talking about his upbringing, his discovery of computers and code, his charitable work or the impact of Twitter and Square, kept coming back to connecting people.”
Not many people have had such a view into a changing technological landscape as has Jack Dorsey during his multiple stints as Twitter CEO. Fewer have done the same in two industries, but Dorsey has as co-founder and CEO of Square, which is part of a sea change in transactions.

“Let’s say you’re investing 30% of your media dollars in TV, 30% in radio, 10% in print, 10% in direct mail, and 20% in digital and social media. You don’t want all of your media running for 3-6 months and go dark for 3-6 months. You need to ladder your media buy so that your advertising is always visible in at least one or two channels at all times, thereby reducing your risk of being “out of sight, out of mind.””
Editor's note: This is the third part in a seven-part series on managing your marketing portfolio. Part 4 will publish next Friday. Check out Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3. A media mix is like laddering bonds. For those investors where bonds make up an important part of their portfolio, ...

“Employees have something to say, but many don’t feel their employers value their voice enough to actually consider their suggestions. And unless business leaders begin to heed the employee voice, employee feedback of all types becomes nothing more than a farcical waste of time.”
Unsplash/SmartBrief illustration. At a young age, we all learn the difference between “hearing” and active listening. Just think back to when your mom would nag you about cleaning your room or your teacher would drone on about something boring. Their words sounded like the muffled “wah wawwh ...

As the number of American craft breweries continues to grow, consumers have seemingly endless options to satisfy their craving for inventive, small batch beers brewed with an emphasis on flavor and technique. Although the battle for space on shelves and beer menus is increasing as more brewers ...

“From congee in China to kaya toast in Singapore to manakish, the breakfast of choice in Lebanon, here are some traditional a.m. eats from around that world and how they could translate to US menus.”
For the fifth year in a row, the number of operators offering breakfast has increased, making the space one of the most competitive dayparts in the industry today. Restaurants and manufacturers have all made moves to get a piece of the business, whether it's McDonald's, whose stock has risen ...

“As you look at your to-do list for this school year, take one thing off and give it to your students. Start the conversation with your class and see where it takes you.”
Teachers have the ability to almost completely reinvent their space year after year. As a new teacher this felt daunting, but after a few years I realized just how truly extraordinary it is. To the teachers in the midst of classroom set up: Don't put up every bulletin board or overthink the ...

“The first step to cognitive empathy is self-awareness. Before you connect with somebody else, it's incredibly important to have a strong awareness of yourself and your own emotions. That way, you can determine which emotions are yours and which emotions are theirs.

“Each year, I ask my students to answer one of the most difficult questions I’ve ever encountered with regard to assessment: "How can my child get all A's in your class and still score low on the state test?"”
During the summer, I teach a graduate course called “Documenting and Assessing Student Learning.” The course focuses on creating strong performance assessments and provides information about educational testing and assessment and how to use test data to inform teacher practice and school ...
