"Exploit the summer while others job searchers take a break." That's what Don Weintraub, ExecuNet's Managing Director of Career Services, suggested in a program for members at the start of the summer. Understandably, many job seekers take a break during the summer to recharge, but Don advised getting a jump on the competition and not taking a summer break. His beginning of the summer program was a huge hit with members and designed to greatly increase your chances of getting hired by Labor Day. If you didn't follow his advice then, you still can now. Labor Day is upon us, but these guidelines will still help your fall job search.

Named by Businessweek as one of the 25 most influential people on the Internet, Joichi Ito believes there is much we can still learn from nature. We are so big and interconnected that what we do no longer has only local impact. The next step in technology use is connected to biology.

The wave of the future in medicine, he stated, is in genetics, and the advances in genetics are going to come from computer people. "Synthetic biology is a lot like computer programming. Codes design a gene sequence for bacteria and they do what they're told," he said. It is efficient and sustainable — but expensive. However, the cost is dropping.

I had been planning a dinner party for weeks. There were twenty people coming, some family, some friends, to celebrate my wife Eleanor's birthday. I designed a ritual for her: My goal was to create a space where people spoke from their hearts in a way they don’t usually do.

I prepared questions I wanted us to explore together, questions like: What do you feel grateful for in your life? What new things do you feel are struggling to grow and be born in you? What do you want to let go of, so that the new can be born?

Sharing For Success: Smashing Data Silos and Breaking Up Fiefdoms

Posted By: Laura Stack
Filed Under: productivity, laura stack, organizational structure
Given the importance of information technology (IT) in the modern business environment, IT terms have inevitably leaked into the common parlance of today's office. For example, "data silos" occur when incompatible systems lack an interface through which they can share data. Databases become isolated from each other, and it becomes increasingly difficult to collect all the data needed to make effective decisions.

Often this becomes institutionalized. Groups within the organization consider themselves isolated entities, with no need or desire to work together. Some even compete for limited resources. Ultimately, productivity stagnates due to lack of cooperation, cross-fertilization of ideas, and jealous guarding of proprietary data.
