Harvard Business Review
What business are you in? It seems like a straightforward question, and one that should take no time to answer. But the truth is that most company leaders are too narrow in defining their competitive landscape or market space. They fail to see the potential for "nontraditional" competitors and therefore often misperceive their basic business definition and future market space. This is because it is much easier to see the world through the lens of today.

The crucial career choices we make every day
By Mike Wokasch
Many of us are in a work routine where we get up, go to work, do our job and go home. We do this without realizing that every day we make two choices that affect our job performance, career opportunities and compensation. These choices also have deeper rooted personal and job satisfaction implications that will become obvious from this discussion. If this is you, watch out. This level of comfort and confidence breeds complacency, can undermine your career and leave you vulnerable. You see, it's easier to rationalize complacency from a position of performance excellence.

Social Media Today
When helping customers strengthen their online presence, a start point would be to ask what the main reason is as to why they struggle with social media. More often than not, one of the top problems expressed is the lack of time to write a blog post or share content on social platforms. Unfortunately, without a strategy for social media engagement, those creative ideas that would have developed into insightful messages and blog posts are simply lost.

TEACHING TIPS


6 immediate strategies for improving teacher morale
TeachThought
Teacher morale isn't a popular topic — and that makes sense on the surface. Teachers are professionals, like engineers, doctors, farmers or business leaders, and no one is going out of their way to make sure that engineers are "keeping their head up" or that farmers "feel good about their craft." Further complicating matters, teachers "get summers off," and are at the helm of one of the most visibly struggling industries in the United States. Sympathy doesn't come naturally under these circumstances.
