The problem with insider obsession

Wed, 2014-06-25 12:41

There is often a tip. Before many big mergers and acquisitions, word leaks out to select investors who seek to covertly trade on the information.

Nine habits leaders need to break

Fri, 2014-06-13 13:46

“Keep learning” is the mantra of modern management. You have to keep up with the constant stream of new information, new technology, new paradigms – new everything.
