    ICP Builds Industrial Distribution Awareness At Two National Events
    Industrial Distribution
    Who will fill the pipeline for jobs at industrial distribution (ID) companies in the years to come as baby boomers continue retiring in record numbers? Industrial Careers Pathway (ICP) has determined those new workers will come from the Generation Y cohort (also known as Millennials) who have an aptitude for science, math and machinery, but may lack a four-year college degree. To help these people discover their ID career path, ICP was visible last month at two U.S. national events where right fit Millennials and their influencing parents, teachers and coaches were also present.

    The Psychology of Leadership in the Social Age
    Switch & Shift
    Leadership is a role many attempt throughout their lives and careers — but it seems few of us actually go on to become great leaders. Why? What makes some people command respect, while others simply become frustrated as they wonder why they aren't making the impact as a leader they want to be? For those answers, new leaders would be well advised to understand the psychology of leadership — not a new field of study, of course, but often overlooked as we begin leadership roles. And those who take time to learn might find the missing piece of the leadership puzzle.
