Leader to Leader

with Terry Siebert

Want to make better business connections? Remember names

I recently did a weekend retreat for a professional services firm. Prior to the event there was a considerable amount of pre-work with the organizers to make sure that we hit the targets that needed to be addressed. In addition, I made the extra effort to go on their website and look at the bios and pictures of those who would be in attendance. By the time of the event, I knew each person’s name and a little bit about him or her. Needless to say, the ability to connect on a personal level with each individual in attendance got us off and running in a very positive way.

Is your company capturing the benefits of collaborative R&D?

A new report by the Industrial Research Institute in Washington, D.C. forecasts that global research and development (R&D) spending will increase by 3.5% in 2016 and reach nearly $2 trillion in value. About one quarter of the spend ($514 billion) will occur in the United States, with the remainder primarily in Asia and Europe.

Blaska's Bring It!

For this voter, it’s all about Pence, Hillary, and Scalia

The morning message from Scott Walker to delegates to the Republican National Convention here in Cleveland amounts to this: Swallow hard.

Mind Your Business

Are you planting seeds for growth within your organization?

I marvel at old trees. Especially the giant oaks we have around the Madison area. I’m lucky because I get to see them in the country when I’m out biking and also when I’m walking around town.

Cleveland Republicans are what democracy looks like, I suppose

Okay, so we got rolled. I am an alternate delegate to the Republican National Convention in Cleveland. We’re meeting at the Quicken Loans Arena, where the Cleveland Cavaliers won the city’s first championship. But the delegation would not permit me onto the floor until the convention rules were enacted. Those rules bound delegates to their state’s presidential-preference primary election results.

At UW–Stout, a working model for how to prepare students for a career

Depending on how old you are and how long you’ve lived in Wisconsin, you’ve likely heard the dismissive phrase, “When in doubt, Stout!” It’s an outdated reference to UW–Stout being a college choice of last resort.

The war on police takes more casualties

I’m in Cleveland for the Republican National Convention, looking down from the brand new Hilton Hotel over Lake Erie. In between, the flags at the Cuyahoga County Courthouse fly at half-mast.

WIIFM — Tune your social media channels to this station

“What should my company share on social media?” is the second most common question I hear when giving presentations (the first being “What is a hashtag?” an article you can read at IBMadison.com).

Dallas: fire on the police; Madison: fire the police, steal the yard signs

We now have courtroom-admissible evidence that Madison’s perpetually aggrieved will not settle for the results of the $400,000 study of police policy and procedures. The 19 of 20 alders who voted for this insult to the police officers did so on the grounds that it would buy the trust of the city’s minority community. It won’t.

Law at Work

with Jessica M. Kramer

If I terminate an employee after a 90-day probationary period, do I still have to pay unemployment insurance?

Contrary to popular belief, a probationary status has no bearing on whether an employer has to pay. Whether an employer plans on having its employee work for a week, a month, or long-term, the employer is required to pay unemployment insurance on that employee and may be liable for benefits that employee later draws if he or she becomes unemployed. Aside from a very few special exceptions, employers with one or more employees (part-time or full-time) are subject to unemployment insurance laws.
