  • Citi's battery-powered rewards card appears stalled
    More than two years after Citigroup announced the pilot of a battery-operated credit card that lets customers push a button to make a purchase with rewards points, the card seems to be stalled. Some say that's because customers don't find it inconvenient to go online to use their rewards points. In addition, mobile-payment options that accomplish the same goal could be coming soon, says Dave Kaminsky, an analyst at Mercator Advisory Group.

Some 28% of senior bosses say that communication skills predict a worker's leadership potential, but only 5% say that looking "polished and put together" is "a key factor" for future leaders, David Burkus writes.
