This morning we unleashed 24 iPhone-armed digital journalists on the streets of London to report and produce a video story. At the same time, the BBC was covering all of London with 8 conventional TV news crews -- and at vastly higher cost.
I could feel myself starting to panic. This is the United States of America, land of oil and gas subsidies. If ever I needed payback for my busy tax dollars at work, it was now.
I've been busy managing my new global team, now that all those WFH slackers have been let go. Who says you can't manage 72 people across six different time zones? Not you! The best part: I never have to worry about getting enough face time at the office. Am I right?
Both HP and Yahoo's CEOs seem to think more face time translates into more light bulbs above employees' heads. But is that really true?
Companies are overwhelmed with tons of resumes coming in every day. To manage this traffic, companies use ATSs (applicant tracking systems) that process and "score" resumes based on selected keywords. The results of this keywords process are harmful for companies.
Change in management style can yield big results for the Worn Out employee. Training managers on how to identify burnout (of all shades) and to address the needs of the Worn Out employee can reclaim a former good performer.
This new paradigm has opened ears to women's voices in the traditionally male-dominated tech field.

I've never liked the saying (not to mention the sentiment) "you can't be too rich or too thin." But now, "you can't be too beautiful" is under fire, too. When it comes to women and their looks, it seems we just can't win.
So, lounging upside down fully-dressed is too sexed up and gyrating in latex is just sexed up done wrong?
Both founders of Google did it, as well as Facebook's CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Richard Branson even did it on the cover. Yes, each of these attractive, successful and stunningly smart men graced the pages of GQ magazine. So why shouldn't Marissa Mayer do the same in Vogue?
The image is sex. It is a nod to Lolita, to American Beauty, to the thousand-and-one images of women handed down through film, television and advertising.
By allowing Vogue to play up her assets in such an undeniably -- and distractingly -- physical way, Marissa Mayer lost the opportunity to make the case for herself, and for other women, that she is far more than a pretty woman in a blue dress.
I was thrilled to be working from home: I bought a new desk, reveled in the short commute from my bedroom to my home office, and enjoyed not having to get dressed up one day a week. After four months in my new job, though, I stopped working from home.
Courage, collaboration, innovation, direct communication, listening, confidence, trust, visionary, passion, tenaciousness -- all are words that describe our greatest leaders, be they in business, public affairs, government or social change
