Getting the best from every employee: Communication techniques that work
Entrepreneur
Eliciting the best work from your employees is the mark of an effective leader. But effectively communicating what exactly you expect from them can be difficult. "Unclear expectations lead to inefficient processes and subpar performance," says Christine Lotze, a partner at Philosophy IB, a Florham Park, N.J.-based management-consulting firm that specializes in changing workplace behavior. "People get frustrated because their work isn't valued and ultimately the company suffers." You can avoid that confusion with these four tips to communicate your expectations clearly and effectively.

7 ways to inspire employees to love their jobs
Forbes
In Gallup's most recent report on the state of the American workplace, we discover that only 30 percent of the U.S workforce is engaged in their work. In other words, they love their jobs. Seventy percent are "not engaged" or "actively disengaged," meaning they hate their jobs or, at best, are unenthusiastic about their roles. Most of these disengaged employees are looking for inspiration. They are searching for meaning and they want to have someone or something to believe in. They want to make a difference and they're looking to you — their team leader — for inspiration.

Leading under pressure
By C. Fredrick Crum
It is said that you achieve what you spend your time thinking about most. Professional athletes practice visualizing sinking the winning shot or hitting that walk-off home run in bottom of the ninth. They can hear the roar of the crowd. They can feel the elation of their accomplishment. This thought process of visualization focuses their energy and leads to accomplishing their goals.

Coffee futures: The highs and lows of a cup of Joe
NPR
NPR's Uri Berliner is taking $5,000 of his own savings and putting it to work . Though he's no financial whiz or guru, he's exploring different types of investments — alternatives that may fare better than staying in a savings account that's not keeping up with inflation.

My taste of the commodities market started with a headline I read a few weeks ago: "Cooling Coffee Prices Hit at 3 1/2 –Year Low". I like coffee. Most people like coffee. That's not going to change. So maybe, just maybe, I could buy coffee low and sell high, not by hoarding sacks of actual coffee beans but with a bet on the futures price.

Iced-tea battle brews for burger chains
The Huffington Post
This is the first week of summer, when temperatures and iced-tea consumption rise sharply. But with the noisy introductions of such recent entrees as Wendy's Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburger, Sonic's Pretzel Dogs and McDonald's new Quarter Pounders it's been easy to overlook the quiet race for iced-tea supremacy going on among the top burger chains.
