Are you a strategic thinker or just a planner?

Fri, 2016-08-19 10:39

I made the point in the first of these columns that one of the main differences between leadership and management is the ability to have a strategic perspective and think strategically. This is universally expected of leaders, almost never taught to anyone formally, and therefore often marks one of the tougher transitions for very successful managers in becoming effective leaders.

Nepotism at Work: Does Your Job Pick Favorites?

Fri, 2016-08-19 10:35

Your boss promotes his incompetent nephew, even though he’s clearly not management material. The company owner’s 20-something daughter gets a private office, but almost every other employee works in a cube. Your co-workers who are chummy with management always get the plum assignments, while others are stuck with busywork. Favoritism rears its ugly head in many offices, and as an employee, there’s not a lot you can do about it. Nepotism at work may be unfair, but it’s not exactly illegal.

Is My GMAT Score Good Enough?

Fri, 2016-08-19 10:14

As a numerical score, the GMAT hints at offering a solid ‘pass-rate’ for potential students to work towards.

If only it were so simple.

Business schools everywhere tend to publish an average score, rather than a minimum score, erring on the side of caution. Their reasoning is that a lower GMAT score combined with a number of other attributes could still mean success come admissions time.

Fri, 2016-08-19 10:11

Good intentions, energy and teamwork are necessary, but good strategy is also vital for nonprofit operations. The brainy stuff really comes in handy.

Speaking during the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Fundraising Day In New York 2016, David M. Sterling of Western New England University stressed the necessity of strategy within an organization.

Should dangerous goods be travelling on Montreal's highways?

Fri, 2016-08-19 09:51

Alain Duguet and Gilbert Prince crisscrossed Canada and the United States together a number of times, two truck drivers cramped in a relatively small space.

They could chat for hours, getting into disagreements every now and then, but Prince was such a jovial person that he laughed even when he was upset, Duguet said.

"I'm talking about him in the past tense…" Duguet said. He sighed. His voice trailed off.

Transport de matières dangereuses: aux élus d'agir

Fri, 2016-08-19 09:45

Un camion-citerne rempli de diesel qui s'enflamme au coeur d'une grande ville, en pleine heure de pointe : ce genre d'événement donne froid dans le dos. L'accident survenu cette semaine sur l'autoroute 40 est certes tragique, mais il aurait pu être encore plus grave. Il doit maintenant servir de signal d'alarme et nous forcer à évaluer chaque maillon de la chaîne du transport routier de matières dangereuses au Québec.
