Are You Actually Learning Anything Or Just Gathering Information?

I’m very fortunate to have had the opportunity to come to Harvard Business School and doubly fortunate to work for such a great company that sees the value in developing and educating their employees. Most of large, publicly traded,  agencies don’t do this kind of thing for their employees. The cost eats into their short term revenues. [...]

We Need More Leaders

My HBS class had the great pleasure to hear from John Kotter today speak about Leadership and change. John Kotter started teaching at Harvard the year I was born. To say he has more experience with business and leadership than I have with life is not an exaggeration. John is incredibly passionate about his work. So much so [...]

Are Job Hopping Social Media Strategists Hurting Their Careers?

This one goes out with love to all you social media, job hopping, circus freaks. You are my people. There’s got to be a joke in here somewhere: This afternoon I listened to a Russian talk about employee management. But seriously, Boris Groysberg is an amazing teacher and very funny. Boris spoke to our HBS  class about [...]

Do You Have A Showroom of Failures?

This morning Tarun Khanna spoke to our class. Tarun’s focus is on entrepreneurs and emerging markets. He’s the author of Billions of Entrepreneurs: How China and India Are Reshaping Their Futures-and Yours and Winning in Emerging Markets: A Road Map for Strategy and Execution. There were a lot of great ideas I still need to digest further but [...]

The 4 + 2 Management Practices Every Great Company Has

Today was the first day of class (see previous post for details as to why I’m spending my spring break in a dorm room on the other side of the country). Nitin Nohria, the dean of HBS spoke at the close of our first day. Nitin presented some fascinating research he performed. Basically he wanted [...]

Spending My Spring Break at Harvard Business School

One of the biggest challenges I’ve had over the last two years is the shift from being “the social media guy,” the guy that came up with the ideas and had to implement them to building and leading a team of digital strategist across multiple large client accounts. I’ve spent a lot less time implementing [...]

Harvard Business Takes on Twitter

Image via CrunchBase I came across two pieces put out by Harvard Business. I found them interesting because they offered competing views of the usefulness of Twitter as a marketing tool. The first article comes from John Sviokla. He also has a similar post on his own blog. Twitter: A Marketer’s Duct Tape - John [...]
