Posted by gary holt on Wed, Nov, 28, 2012 @ 10:11 AM

Part 1: What you really need to know about blogging

Build Your Website with a Blog

A blog is simply an online journal or web log. A blog is the easiest, most effective way to communicate and build trust with your target market.

Vision- The Unifying Factor for Change Management

Posted by gary holt on Mon, Nov, 26, 2012 @ 12:11 PM

In change management, a company’s management uses leadership to implement the change to processes, policies, etc with the desired result of acceptance and compliance by the employees. We know that this can be a challenge but a company that takes the time to create a story to tell where they plan on being in the future and how, in general, they will get there will have better prepared employees. That story, that picture for the future, is the company’s vision.
