News & Opinion: This Week - 2/28/05

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 4:07 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

Welcome to a new week and Milwaukee again has new snow for a Monday morning. This is gettin a little scary. Sorry about Friday. Jack invited down to 8CR HQ for pizza and we managed to forget to post anything. We promise to make up for it this week. Let me start with the new piece on the Excerpt Blog. We will be featuring Never Eat Alone by Keith Farrazzi this week. You may have seen his stuff in Inc. or Fast Company. His book is all about how to become better at networking. We also have a new interview on the Podcasts Blog. Last week, I talked with Dorothy Leonard about her book Deep Smarts. What attracted me to the book was some of the overlap with Blink. The book is written more from a managerial perspective and talks about the building of intutition and wisdom in an organization. It also talks about building mechanisms of transfering that expertise. You can listen to the interview this link. We have some other things already lined up as the week goes on. Have a great week!
