Madison and D.C. not so different on transportation policy, unfortunately

The U.S. Capitol building and the Wisconsin State Capitol look very similar. The State Capitol is 284 feet, 5 inches tall from the ground floor to the top of the statue on the dome, making it 3 feet shorter than the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C.

Madison liberals will protest the city they have created and governed

Who knew? Madison — a city governed by liberals, progressives, and socialists for the past 40 years — does not have enough regulations to contain the bloodlust of its police! At least, so those self-same rulers say.

5 tips for developing effective leaders

A winning team rarely comes together spontaneously. It takes hard work, discipline, and effective team leadership. More specifically, an effective leader takes responsibility for ensuring that each individual within the team is in a position to be a contributing member, that collaborative team dynamics are supported, and that the overall business unit achieves results.

Leader to Leader

with Terry Siebert

Leaders, get to know your people!

It never ceases to amaze me when people in leadership roles tell me how unimportant it is to get to know their team members on a personal level. The usual comment is something like, “This is work, they’re getting paid to do a job — why should I care about their personal lives?” To answer this question, I will start with an example and then outline an effective way to connect with each person on your team, one by one.

Write in Mike Koval for mayor of Madison

One of the great political movies of all time, ranking up there with The Manchurian Candidate and Advise and Consent, is Animal House, that 1978 classic about a ribald college fraternity.

Evil Email: Go old school to communicate more effectively

You may get the impression from the title that I hate email. Actually, it’s a love/hate relationship. One thing that I get frustrated by, as I’m sure you do, is the sheer volume of email that I receive at work. If I’m not keeping up throughout the day, I’ll have about 75 to 100 emails — and I’m pretty diligent about unsubscribing and blocking senders, so there’s another 25-plus in my spam!

The long-term case for emerging markets

I received this question recently: “Remind me again: why are emerging markets in my portfolio?” A good question. Emerging markets aren’t doing very well lately compared to the U.S. and many other developed markets; it makes sense to wonder why we would want to be invested in them.

Why you need cyber insurance

The adage used to be “nothing is certain in life but death and taxes,” but thanks to the efforts of innovative hackers across the globe, that can now be changed to “death, taxes, and security breaches.” To paraphrase Federal Trade Commissioner Julie Brill, there are two types of companies out there, those that know they’ve been hacked and those that haven’t yet learned about it.
