This is why The Marketing Seminar was built. It’s a group activity, a 100-day seminar designed to let you do the work, to act as if, to share your journey with others, to see what happens when you bring work that matters to people who care. It’s pretty easy to tell when you have a plumbing problem. Or when you need a roofer. And if your finances are a mess, you might have an accounting problem. But what are the symptoms that you have a marketing problem?

Is There a Cost to Kissing Up to Your Boss?

Peter Stark

Following a recent leadership training seminar, an employee pulled me aside and asked, “Do I need to kiss up to my boss or should I do what is right for the organization?” Next, the seminar participant asked, “But, what if the boss is asking me to do something that I disagree with?” The seminar participant’s next question brought a new definition to the meaning of kissing up.
