  • Get personal to engage your team
    When John Bossong's 17-year-old daughter picked up her first paycheck, she found that her boss had added a brief handwritten note welcoming her and encouraging her to give her all. That simple act showed the boss' commitment to achieving a "higher purpose" and keeping workers motivated and engaged, Bossong writes. "If you want a team that is unified and aligned, make leadership personal," he adds. SmartBrief/SmartBlog on Leadership (1/3) LinkedInFacebookTwitterGoogle+Email this Story

  • How to achieve your sales goals
    You may be able to increase the odds of reaching your objectives this year by encouraging your team to identify personal and professional goals and by creating a to-do list with pen and paper, writes Barry Farber. "There is something about writing a to-do list on lined paper and crossing off the actions you've completed that can't be replicated on a screen," he writes.
