How to convince leaders to invest in company culture

first_imgIn addition to my leadership role at CultureIQ, I’m an adjunct professor teaching Entrepreneurship 2.0 at New York University Stern School of Business.  Believe me, starting a company is not easy, and there is a lot of material to cover in this class. Yet, every semester I dedicate an entire section to discussing company culture.Why? Because I truly believe you cannot have a successful company without having a strong, positive company culture.Thankfully, due to the shifting demographics of the workforce, company culture is getting more and more attention. In fact, according to Deloitte’s Global Human Capital Trends 2016 report, 82% of survey respondents believe that “culture is a potential competitive advantage.”However, I still notice that culture is often dismissed as a “soft topic,” or people confuse it for the fun, nice-to-have perks in a company. If you’re reading this, you probably agree with me that culture deserves a seat at the strategy table, because it has real, tangible results. continue reading » 5SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Mbala: La Salle defense not as good as last year

first_imgLATEST STORIES Well, Ben Mbala is not the one to forget and he knows this version of the Green Archers is far different from the unit that won the title a year ago.“I say defense, we’re not the defensive-minded team we used to be last year and that’s something we need to change,” said Mbala Sunday at Mall of Asia Arena after La Salle lost to arch rival Ateneo, 76-75.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSFederer blasts lack of communication on Australian Open smogREAD: Ateneo sweeps first round, outlasts La SalleLa Salle’s loss to Ateneo saw it slip to 5-2, a respectable record but a far cry considering how powerful the Green Archers were last year.

But this season is going in this way and now we have to try to do our best until the end.“We must be realistic to understand that the teams ahead of us are going very fast.

RCB crush Guyana by nine wkts in CLT20

first_imgJacques Kallis starred with an all-round performance as Royal Challengers Bangalore crushed underdogs Guyana by nine wickets in their opening Champions League Twenty20 match in Centurion on Sunday.Kallis captured three wickets for 16 to play a big role in RCB skittling out Guyana for a paltry 103 after captain Anil Kumble put the opposition in and later smashed an unbeaten 43 to help his side overhaul the target with more than seven overs remaining at SuperSport Park.Veteran batsman Rahul Dravid, who opened the innings with Kallis, contributed 33 as RCB scored 106 in 12.2 overs to start their campaign on a winning note.Kallis remained not out on 43 from 32 balls with the help of four fours and a six while Dravid, the only RCB batsman dismissed on Sunday, hit three fours in his 34-ball innings.One-down Robin Uthappa chipped in with an eight-ball cameo of 25 not out which he made with the help of two fours and an equal number of sixes.The Guyana bowlers, lacking in international exposure, failed to make any impact against the top class RCB batsmen who scored runs almost at will.With a meager total of 104 to chase, Kallis and Dravid did not take much risk with too many shots before Uthappa ended the match in a flash by taking 21 runs in the 12th over with the help of two sixes and a four off Christopher Barnwell.Uthappa hit the winning runs — a four — in the 13th over to overhaul the target.Earlier, Kallis led a disciplined RCB bowling attack with three wickets, including two in three balls, as they shot out Guyana for 103.advertisementKallis claimed Guyana captain Ramnaresh Sarwan’s (7) crucial wicket early in the innings before scalping two batsmen in the 16th over after Kumble elected to field after winning the toss.Kallis (3/16) was ably supported by Kumble, Praveen Kumar and Nayan Joshi by chipping in with a wicket each as RCB bowlers tied down the Guyanese batsmen, most of whom lacking in international exposure, all through the innings.Barnwell top-scored with a 35-ball 30 while the next highest scorer was opener Sewnarine Chattergoon with an 18.Kumble’s decision to bowl first was proved right by his pacers Dale Steyn and Kumar as the pace duo tied down Guyana batsmen with the help of some early swing.The Guyanese could not score a boundary till the fourth over and lost their first wicket next over with Kumar removing Travis Dowlin who holed out to fine-leg fielder Steyn.In the same over, the other opener Chattergoon was dropped by Rahul Dravid while on 14.Kumble brought in Kallis for the first time in the sixth over but he was whacked for a six by Sarwan. But the bowler had the last laugh removing Sarwan with a beautiful off cutter to leave Guyana in trouble at 34 for two.With boundaries coming far and between, the Guyanese had to run at every opportunity they got and Cameron White pounced on one such oopportunity to run out Chattergoon with a direct throw from the covers in the eighth over.With their top order coming a cropper against a quality RCB bowling attack, the Guyanese could only score 54 for three at the halfway mark and they failed to accelerate in the seconf half of their innings with wickets tumbling at regular interval.Kumble, who introduced himself in the seventh over, got his first wicket in the 12th over in the form of Narsingh Deonarine (13) who holed out to Ross Taylor at deep midwicket.Royston Crandon (5) fell in the 14th over while promising youngster Jonathan Foo disappointed as he fell in the 16th over for just one to Kallis from the six balls he faced and with that Guyana’s hopes of a respectable total evaporated.But for a figting 30 from Barnwell, who fell in the last ball of their innings, Guyana would not have crossed the 100-mark.last_img read more

Knicks Topple The Bulls, 115-107

first_imgCHICAGO — Kristaps Porzingis had no sense that he was in for a special night when he went up for his first dunk in the first quarter.Porzingis tied a career high with 29 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, Carmelo Anthony added 24 points and the New York Knicks beat the Chicago Bulls 115-107 on March 23.But Porzingis, the Knicks’ 7-foot-3 rookie center, nearly had a shaky — and embarrassing — start.“On the first dunk, I did not have my legs,” he said. “I almost missed it. I was OK physically and able to knock down shots. The ball was moving and I had some pretty good looks.”Porzingis was one point short of becoming the first rookie since Patrick Ewing to put up 30 points and 10 rebounds in one game for the Knicks.“I looked up at the scoreboard in the fourth quarter and saw how many (points) I had, but I didn’t know about the record,” Porzingis said. “I don’t want to force up a shot just to break a record.”Porzingis displayed an inside-outside game that the Bulls defense couldn’t handle. He was 3 of 6 from 3-point range, which opened up the rest of the floor for his teammates.In the front end of a back-to-back with the Knicks, the Bulls failed to complete a sweep of their four-game homestand and dropped behind the Detroit Pistons in the Eastern Conference standings for the eighth and final playoff spot.Bulls forward Jimmy Butler, who was held to just seven points on 3-of-11 shooting, disagreed with coach Fred Hoiberg when he said the Bulls were outworked. He put the blame on his own shoulders.“I see other things wrong, but that’s what he is supposed to say,” Butler said. “He’s supposed to say it’s a team thing. I don’t think right now, I know this is a team game, but if one of your so-called best players is not doing what their supposed to do, that’s what is going to happen.“You’ve seen the way I’ve been playing lately. It’s sad. My teammates won’t say it, my coaches won’t say it.”Nikola Mirotic scored a career-high 35 points for the Bulls, and Derrick Rose added 21. Mirotic was 9 of 13 from 3-point range and tied a franchise best for made 3-pointers.The Knicks led by as many as 22 in the second half. Rose and Mirotic tried to start a late rally, but each was answered by Porzingis and Anthony.Rose got the Bulls within 10 late in the fourth, but Porzingis hit a jumper. Mirotic made a 3-pointer to get it within eight at 109-101 with 3:07 left, but Anthony followed with a 3 from the corner.The Knicks were 14-of-25 from 3-point range.After establishing his outside game in the first half, Porzingis flashed through the lane for a dunk in the third quarter.“He seems to be alive again,” Knicks coach Kurt Rambis said. “He looked like he went through a period where his legs were dead.”The Knicks led 57-55 at the half. Porzingis scored 17 points on 7-of-9 shooting, including 3 of 4 from 3-point range. Rose led the Bulls with 12 points.(PATRICK ROSE) TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Atlanta Falcons Whipped by Cincinnati Bengals in Preseason Opener

The Cincinnati Bengals were too much for the Atlanta Falcons to handle in the team’s first preseason open.Two new Bengals players, Giovani Bernard and Josh Johnson have established themselves as offensive tools that may help Cincinnati in the regular season.Bernard scored as he shared carries running the ball and Johnson led two second-quarter touchdown drives, which helped Cincinnati steamroll the Atlanta Falcons 34-10 Thursday night.“We’ll complement each other really well,” Bernard said. “I think people got a little taste of it tonight.”Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said he was impressed by the performance of his players.“I was impressed overall with what he did out there,” said Bengals coach Marvin Lewis of Johnson. “We know he can make plays with his legs, but throwing the ball is how a quarterback has to make a living in this league, and it was a real nice play to Brandon Tate.”The Cincinnati Bengals went 10-6 last season. They are trying to get over the hump after suffering their second straight loss in the first round of the playoffs. Their last playoff win came back in the 1990 season. read more
