Taking ownership of startup problem is first step to escaping cellar

Blue skies and a smaller Lake Mendota, circa 1830

An environmental group called CRANES would take Dane County back to the future — the future being the 1830s when a few French-Canadian trappers were the only Europeans in town. As part of its vision, the Capital Region Advocacy Network for Environmental Sustainability (CRANES) would lower Lake Mendota by five feet over the next 20 years to return the lake to its supposed pre-settlement state in the 1830s. That would reduce the large lake’s footprint by as much as two square miles.

Leader to Leader

Principle number one: ‘Don’t criticize, condemn, or complain.’

The title quote is the first principle out of 30 from Dale Carnegie’s classic, How to Win Friends and Influence People. All of the other principles are positive: be a good listener; give honest appreciation; make the other person feel important; try honestly to see things from the other person’s point of view — the list goes on. It’s interesting to note that the only principle that says, “DON’T,” also happens to be the first one.

Coping with change

There’s an old saying, “If you do not create change, change will create you.” I don’t know many people in business or in their personal lives who like change. Most of us resist change, although change itself is constant. No matter whether we resist or avoid change, it enters our lives just the same. It’s easier to adapt to change when you initiate it. According to Alan Deutschman, author of Change or Die, what really inspires positive change is hope, not fear.

Cybersecurity insurance: Maximizing coverage to mitigate risk

By now most businesses understand that the question is not whether they will experience a data breach incident but when. Knowing how to mitigate the risks that flow from a breach is vital. In addition to implementing a program of administrative, technical, and physical control measures to identify and reduce the risk, cybersecurity insurance is a means of mitigating the financial risks to the business if those other control measures fail.

Leading by example

As a business executive in senior management, you often lead by example. This even includes what happens outside the four walls of your office building. You’re probably on a board for a nonprofit, volunteer with your kids’ activities, and even donate resources to many different causes in your community.
