So many great pieces to share this week! No theme, just great info to help you in your drive to be a winning leader:
- It looks like a profile piece on Sara Nelson, and it is…but it also provides stats and insights into the drive to re-unionize America and I thought you’d want to see this.
- The minimum wage issue is multi-faceted. Want to see some of the arguments presented in historical context? I really appreciate this piece by Freakonomics, and I hope you do, too.
- Are sarcastic people more successful? Ouch, and here’s Jessica Stillman’s take on why it’s true, for Inc. Magazine.
- A fun article from Fast Company on logo colors and brands that are flipping conventional wisdom on its head. We think you’ll like this look at branding innovation.
- True or False? America’s hottest new restaurants are in major cities. This from The Wall Street Journal answers that quite well.
- New from Merck: Teal Talk. First audio/article combo is on the need to set the tone for work-life balance at the top of the organization, by example. Really good quotes and shared perspectives here for organizations of all sizes.
Do Good Spotlight on: Christine’s Hope for Kids
We learned about this amazing organization through our friend and talented graphics designer Kim Waters.
Christine’s Hope for Kids was born of parents’ desire to carry on the passion of their daughter, Christine, who died during an earthquake in Haiti while she and her college classmates were helping the children there.
Christine had suffered from Tourette’s Syndrome and was bullied throughout her childhood. She vowed to make life easier for the next generation by educating people about the long-term effects of bullying and how to help kids help other kids work to stop bullying.
Her parents picked up her mission to carry her dreams forward by creating Christine’s Hope, and now they have published a book, Always Better Together (buy here) to help educate children about bullying, through a story written by Linda Martin and illustrated by Anita Barghigiani.
We love everything about this organization and were happy to make a donation to help them take their mission forward. You can learn more here:
We hope this read sparked new ideas and a few donations to Christine’s Hope too. Have a great rest of the week and be sure to reach out if you want to ask questions, brainstorm, or just catch up!
