Content Insider #403 - Reputations
In today's always on, always available world the toughest job for a company is developing, maintaining, protecting its reputation. Business partners, customers who don't get the information/assistance they need can go around one/two people until the issue is handled. If people can't or won't accept the company's philosopphy and goals as theirs, believe that question/issue isn't their problem too should think about a new career path because they're doing the company and themselves a disservice. If folks simply go through the motions everyday that means others have to pick up the slack. There's a reason we think of the company as a team.

Raise your hand if you've been out in the field with your sales team making sales calls. Wait why should you? Your job is engineering, accounting, product design, service/support, marketing/communications you don't have to do sales too. Sorry but you do.

Content Insider # 396 - New Work
The global economy is bouncing back but there's only a modest increase in full time employment. Not that there aren't jobs but rather there aren't the right people for the jobs. To ensure they grow, smart companies are changing their focus on payroll increases and finding the best people for the challenges even if they're not interested in "a job" and more interested in the challenges/opportunities to grow on their own career paths. After all, folks know from experience - friends, neighbors, themselves - that fulltime employment is a myth and they're taking control of their future. Management has to focus on finding, working with the best talent available rather than body count because the world changes...quickly But as Tallahassee knows old habits die hard. Read More

Content Insider #395 - Collaboration
There was a time long, long ago when people went to the office in the morning and went home in the evening. In between those hours they worked, had meetings and keeping things moving smoothly wasn't all that tough. But times change. Today companies want the best teams - employees and consultants - whether they are cross town, cross country, on the other side of the globe far from traditional offices. It requires attention and special managerial skills to ensure the virtual team works smoothly when they can't be seen every day. But having the best team - regardless of their location - produces outstanding returns/results. That's what you want right? Read More

 Fighting Racism, Racial Pride are Themes of Some Top Rio Carnival Samba Group's Parades
Racial pride and battles against racism are themes for some of the flashy samba group's presentations and street parties as Rio de Janeiro's flamboyant Carnival parades enter their second night. Some samba groups parading on Monday have put together dance numbers that honor Afro-Brazilian heritage, and one of them built a giant Nelson Mandela float. It's meant to remind people of his fight for equality, while also calling for more racial integration in the Southern American nation, which has more black people than any other nation aside from Nigeria.

It's no longer about thinking you can completely defend against every possible cyber attack, but also about monitoring and adjusting practices as quickly as the attackers do. Read More

 Microsoft Gives Away Office 365 Mobile Apps in a Bid for More Users
In a significant strategy shift, Microsoft is aiming to maximize users over dollars with its Office franchise, traditionally a cash cow for the company. Microsoft is eliminating the fee to use most functions of its mobile apps for Office 365 — the Web and mobile version of the popular Office software bundle. Until now, people who wanted to create or edit Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, or PowerPoint presentations on iPhones, iPads or Android smartphones had to pay for an Office 365 subscription , which starts at $70 a year for non-business users.

No Instant Success
No Instant Success
We love the observations of people "he's an overnight success" and "boy it must be great to be the big boss and give everyone orders." There's no such thing as an overnight success and it's tough being the boss and making people really believe the ultimate success or destruction of the company is based on how well they manage what they do and how they manage their failures because...they'll come. The CEO of OWC has some great advice for dealing with the challenges, the opportunities. Read More
