About Handshakes

I read this article today on Quartz Obsession that has an entire plug about handshakes, I really enjoyed the article and saw some lame handshakes too… But hey, as I always say: YOU CAN STILL NOT EMAIL A HANDSHAKE regardless of how sophisticated our tech savvy entrepreneurs are. You win trust and people ONE HANDSHAKE AT A TIME… If you don’t believe me, believe in science: Researchers from the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel reported in 2015 that handshakes […]

It’s hard to run a company well if you don’t have clear goals

It’s hard to run a company well if you don’t have clear goals. John Doerr’s new book, “Measure What Matters,” is a guidebook to using a leadership strategy called Objectives and Key Results — or, in other words, communicating what you want to achieve and measuring how well you achieve it. In society at large, he said, “our leaders and some of our great institutions are failing us,” in many cases because they have picked the wrong objectives; more specifically […]

Or perhaps someone has become increasingly frustrated because you haven’t returned their call or email. Somewhere in the discussion, the words slip out “it’s just […]

The evidence […]
