A couple years back, I read through a great book that had a lot of application for my job as a change management advisor. Crucial Conversations is a book about how to better deal with high stakes conversations where opinions differ and emotions run high. I was also able to... Continue reading

I chuckle whenever I see an organization try to create artificial scarcity, particularly when their business model is threatened by the digital age. As of March 7, HarperCollins e-book titles licensed to Canadian schools and public libraries come with a new restriction: after 26 checkouts, they self-destruct. Dan Misener has... Continue reading
