Seeing the World Makes Good Business Sense

Everyone likes a vacation. Who can deny the pure joy of that initial throw-your-flabby-torso-into-a-deck-chair moment, and the subsequent hours and days of mind emptying idleness? While recent research suggests that traditional relaxation vacations are beneficial both to individual health and to the prosperity of business, it is important to balance R&R with discovering new horizons. That's right, you should venture beyond the beach resorts and bed and breakfasts and endeavour for a more active adventure at a remote destination. Anatolia, Estonia, Kathmandu, Timbuktu. Strive to turn at least some vacations into a slug at the pioneer life. Here's why:

How Candide can help you reduce turnover and capital costs.

I went to see the Opera Candide last week. It was presented by the Calgary Opera Company, @calgaryopera, and I enjoyed it immensely. I am not sure why I love opera, but I do.

Tips from Astronaut Chris Hadfield on How To Live a Good Life.

During my recent holiday, I read Chris Hadfield's book "An Astronauts Guide to Life on Earth." Mr. Hadfield tells the story of achieving his lifelong goal to be an astronaut and the lessons he learned along the way. Lessons useful in everyday life. I thought I would share a few of Hatfield's thoughts with you.

Why Managing by the Numbers can be a Love-Hate Relationship

Last Week

Last week, I talked about CEOs who get too involved in the day to day operations of the firm, ending up making the problems as their own and reducing employee involvement and overall corporate performance. The solution is to assign tasks to others and hold them accountable. Easy to say, hard to do. Here is the link to the post.

Brett Tolbert worried. As CEO of Service Eenergy Inc., Brett's board had charged him to develop and execute a new strategic plan.
