Successful leadership requires 6 critical resources
Leadership is a chess match. Every decision you make influences your next five decisions. Unfortunately, many leaders don’t realize the implications of each of their decisions. It's like an entrepreneur who battles long and hard to reach their desired goal, and stops 90 percent of the way, not knowing they only had 10 percent more to go to get there.

Stuck in overly long, aimless meetings? Try these strategies
Nothing drains happiness faster than a long, unproductive meeting. You're bored, you're not getting anything done, emails are piling up while you sit, trapped. Just think: if you cut out just one hour of meeting time each week, you'd have an extra week for work — or fun — by the end of the year. On the other hand, I disagree with people who argue that we should have no meetings. A productive meeting can be tremendously valuable, a big time-saver and even exhilarating.

Avoid these common hiring mistakes
By Mel Kleiman
Did you ever think you'd hired an eagle, only to have the person turn out to be a turkey on the job? At one of my recent speaking engagements, one participant brought down the house when she said: "I interviewed the good twin, then the evil twin showed up for work." The reasons apparent eagles turn out to be total turkeys can most often be attributed to one of these four, common hiring mistakes.
