Happy New Year!!! With New Year’s resolutions in full swing – or completely forgotten about – I thought this was a great way to start the new year. New Year/New Ideas/New You??

I came across an article recently that got my wheels turning. It is such a contradiction to corporate vocabulary as we know it, that I felt it was necessary to share – along with my two cents. The article recently published online for Fast Company is titled, “These Three Phrases Are Killing Innovation At Your Workplace”. If you didn’t see the article, you will be surprised to learn that the number one phrase killing your Innovation is “BEST PRACTICES”. How many times a day do you talk about or think about or bring up in a meeting…Best Practices? Maybe it takes the form of Standard Operating Procedures. Either way – you are stifling up to the minute creativity.

When I envisioned 2018 as a kid, I for sure thought we would be flying our cars and people would be moving about town on hover boards. Is anyone still working on that? Well even though we are a bit behind on the flying car front, there is no doubt 2017 delivered on many fronts.

So, welcome 2018! I can only imagine what is in store. So what better time to look at 2018 trends in business.

As the company’s Prius driving socially liberal minded employee, I thought I would take this opportunity to speak about what 2018 trends we are likely to see on the corporate social responsibility front, known as CSR. This is an increasing sector of business strategic initiatives and one that in 2018 may be more visible and important than ever before.

As we close out another year of our CEO Profile Series, we wanted to end the year with a leader in our industry. We are proud that we were able to convince Britt Landrum, III, of LandrumHR to participate. Not that it took too much convincing; Britt is the kind of guy that is always willing to help out, and does so with a smile and a genuine eagerness.

Well, as the song goes, “’Tis the Season to be Jolly…” but during this season there are so many reasons to feel overwhelmed and stressed, that Jolly often seems like the emotion we may have when it is all over, mid-January over.

So, as I sat down to write my pre-planned article on the Impact of Algorithms on Management Functionality, I decided to eliminate that stress for myself, and you by the way, and Dog Ear that one for 2018. (or maybe not) Who needs to read about algorithms at a time like this?
