Critical Communication Skills New Hires Lack … and What Employers Can Do About It

It’s that time of year – when the newest crop of college graduates find or hope to find their place in the workforce. So, what are their job prospects? Pretty good, actually.

Say Goodbye to Low-Energy Presentations

For some presenters, one of the most challenging things to do is deliver a presentation with energy and passion. Who are these low-energy presenters? Some are introverts.
