  • A Leadership Agenda for 2013

    Written by: Shawn Murphy | January 3, 2013

      What I love about a new year are the expectations and anticipation reserved for something new. We permit ourselves to mentally travel back in time and revisit the old and peer into what worked and what didn’t. Many of us then become resolute to change or continue doing whatever our mental time travel revealed […] Read moreRead More»

      This year went by so fast slowly. How it’s possible that we’re nearing the end of 2012 is beyond me. It was a packed year with many peaks and valleys. Certainly a highlight was the genesis of ExchangeGain. Ted and I could not be more pleased with the response to the content […] Read moreRead More»

      You’d think it would be a cinch to identify your top posts of the last year for a year-end “Best Of” post, right? Not so fast. As we were discussing our respective lists, we had to decide: are we talking about most-read posts? Most retweeted? Most shared on LinkedIn or Facebook? Most liked on […] Read moreRead More»


  • The Slippery Slope of Not Asking Why

    Written by: Deborah Mills-Scofield | December 19, 2012

    I’d like to think I’m good at challenging the status quo.  To get regular reality checks, I spend time with college kids creating for-profit and not-for-profit businesses aimed at solving wicked problems.  They truly challenge the status quo and it is, fortunately, invigoratingly contagious. Sometimes (most of the time?), the status quo is so deeply […] Read moreRead More»


  • The Thrill of Hope

    Written by: Shawn Murphy | December 18, 2012

      The world’s irrevocably broken state reminds us of our own mortality. Currently, we are forced to reconcile the deaths of 20 young lives ended too soon in Newtown, Connecticut. Ongoing, we are infuriated by the cruelty of bullies and grief stricken when kids feel the only way to deal with one is to commit […] Read moreRead More»


  • Tuning Our Strengths

    Written by: Dr. Andrew Thorn | December 17, 2012

      My 16 year old son John is becoming quite an accomplished piano player. I love to hear him play, but I confess that I haven’t always felt this way. When he was first learning it sounded more like noise than music. In the beginning, he found a song that we all enjoyed. We encouraged […] Read moreRead More»

  • The Neglected Culture

    Written by: Shawn Murphy | December 15, 2012

    Without intentionally cultivating and nurturing your company’s culture, you’ll get what emerges from neglect. And it won’t be what you or your employees want. Your customers will know that something is “off” with your company. Ugly things grow from neglect. Discontent settles in. An aimless anger grows. Counterproductive behaviors dominate. Slowly, imperceptibly your culture devolves […] Read moreRead More»


  • There’s a more human way to do business.

    In the Social Age, it’s how we engage with customers, collaborators and strategic partners that matters; it’s how we create workplace optimism that sets us apart; it’s how we recruit, retain (and repel) employees that becomes our differentiator. This isn’t a “people first, profits second” movement, but a “profits as a direct result of putting people first” movement.
