    We have all seen the devastation of Hurricane Harvey from the comfort of our home and businesses. We have also seen such a grand outpouring of love and support for each other. Those with little step forward time and time again to help those with even less. It truly is the hallmarked example of the very best of humanity, a lesson we should all remember.
     
    I am proud to see so many area businesses and organizations stepping forward as well. As many of you many have heard, we are sending 100% of dollar donations and 50% of the proceeds from our September 24 Calcutta event at Witherspoon Distillery in support of the relief efforts. It is the least we can do.
     
    Thank you to the many businesses and organizations that have already contributed. If you want to join our efforts please purchase a ticket or make a monetary donation here.

    Email and Calendar Data Are Helping Firms Understand How Employees Work
    Using data science to predict how people in companies are changing may sound futuristic. As we wrote recently, change management remains one of the few areas largely untouched by the data-driven revolution. But while we may never convert change management into a "hard science," some firms are already benefiting from the potential that these data-driven techniques offer.
     
    The Ladders
    Why your boss lacks emotional intelligence
    Over the past century, the heartless, no-nonsense CEO has become something of an icon - and a cliché - in American society. Hollywood would have us believe that the Machiavellian chief exec is still alive and well.

    Marketing Myths Small Business Owners Should Stop Believing
    When you're running a small business, it's often up to you or a member of a very small team to research and make all decisions for the business. And when you're trying to allocate a marketing budget, being well informed is essential to the future of the business' success. If you're considering investing in SEO for your company but aren't sure if it is going to pay off in the end, get the real facts about common SEO misconceptions.
