B-School Management Insight 
  • Mobilizing employees in tough times
    Organizations can fail if the leader can't rally workers for action when needed, writes Robert Bruner, dean of the Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia. It's critical workers believe the leader is doing the right thing at the right time, there is a credible plan and they feel an emotional connection to the leader's message.

Best Practices 
  • Why you should pass on 401(k) debit cards
    Employers should just say no to 401(k) debit cards, which are designed to let employees tap into their retirement fund with a signature and a card swipe, Kris Dunn writes. While workers say they like the ability to borrow, critics contend it makes it too easy to spend when more savings are needed. Benefits Buzz (7/27) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
  • Digital nomads and the roam office
    What do AOL, software maker Ezenia and a small business that sells shopping bags have in common? They all count "digital nomads" among their workers. In increasing numbers, America's telecommuters are ditching the home office, taking their laptops and setting up shop in coffee houses, libraries, bookstores and, now, "co-working centers."

  • Creating a vision, together
    Leaders who focus on the process and not the people ruin the shared vision experience, Dan McCarthy writes. Instead, managers should focus on getting key people together, doing prep work, setting the agenda and goals, fostering creativity and efficiency, then communicating the vision.
