In the days before Amazon was a household word (you know, before fire was invented), founder Jeff Bezos said he would spend hours each day on the site trying to “break it.” He told an audience that he wanted to experience Amazon as a typical customer experiences it, so he spent hours shopping and would [...]
I’m a mom. And I say, “Give me a break.” They say that “Necessity is the mother of invention.” But why wait until inventions are needed? Why isn’t your company always innovating? I’m a parent of millennials and despite what you’ve heard – they’re not all that bad. They have the answer to your innovation [...]

There are different types of leaders. What kind of leader are you and what kind of leader do you like to follow?
In the great movie, “Philadelphia,” Denzel Washington playing an attorney brings the courtroom to a standstill when he pointedly directs a witness, “Now explain this to me like I’m a four-year-old.” Don’t you wish you could do that when you’re an innocent bystander listening to a conversation among IT professionals? The jargon will make you [...]
Maybe the most famous example of mentoring in the movies is Yoda’s relationship with Luke Skywalker. There is even a Top 10 list for wisdom Yoda imparts to the young Jedi. Your mentoring doesn’t have to take place in the Dagobah (but a lot of IT people probably wish it could.) Many of us acquire [...]
