If Halloween was a corporate holiday, what fictional CEO would you dress up as at the office party?

Our ProResource office survey might reveal a bit about the generations we represent, but J. Peterman from Seinfeld topped our list of favorite faux leaders. Did you know the character was based on a real life apparel company and its CEO?

Miranda Priestly from The Devil Wears Prada technically wasn’t a CEO, but as Editor-in-Chief of Runway magazine, she ruled with an iron fist.

My kids immediately thought of Tony Stark from Iron Man, who, as a sole proprietor, clearly prioritized corporate continuity. When his life was threatened by a nefarious villain, he appointed Pepper Potts as the new CEO of Stark Industries.

Probably the most famous quote from a fictional CEO came from Gordon Gekko in the movie Wall Street, when he uttered, “Greed, for lack of a better word, is good.”

I could go on, but let’s have some fun, and hear from my network about their favorite fabricated executive. Go!

(P.S. Several years ago, Forbes used to draft a list of the richest fictional CEOs, I wish they’d bring that feature back.)

When to Delete 'That' 10/20/2020

When to Delete 'That'

Want to make your writing sound more polished? Take a look at when you do and don’t use “that.” An unnecessary “that” (or several of them) clutter writing. Neal Whitman, writing for Grammar Girl, offers great advice on when to use or omit “that.”

When to Delete 'That' Several listeners have asked when they should omit the subordinating conjunction "that" in their writing. For example, should you write “Squiggly said that it was Aardvark’s birthday,” or just “Squiggly said it was Aardvark’s birthday”? For this senten

How LinkedIn is Keeping Discussion Civil - ProResource

#LinkedIn has long had the reputation for being a site with few controversial or viral posts. Yet with recent national and world events, and a looming U.S. presidential election, that has definitely and definitively changed.

As its users explore more complex ideas on the platform, some LinkedIn conversations are veering toward confrontation. The site sees it — and it's taking new steps to moderate discussions so they stay constructive, respectful, and never harmful.

#socialmedia #civility #linkedintips

How LinkedIn is Keeping Discussion Civil - ProResource Chances are good that your LinkedIn news feed looks a lot different than it did a year ago.

When you first create a LinkedIn account, and when expanding your network, the platform will prompt you to import your email contacts and invite them to connect. While this may seem like an easy way to increase your connections, importing is rarely a good idea.

A full import risks two missteps:
#1. Most people’s contacts reflect a mix of professional and personal relationships. When you import, everyone gets an invitation; you want to be more selective than that in building your business network.

#2. If the email you use for LinkedIn is a business one, and all your contacts are business related, then it’s probably fine to add people through importing. Most people, however, tend to use their personal email when setting up a LinkedIn account. When they receive your invite, it’s formatted as an email soliciting them to create an account. And nobody wants to receive that kind of spam: it’s annoying!

In the end, you’ll be better off using your email contacts as a base, refining it to reflect business relationships, and sending invitations yourself. That way, you can customize your messaging and send connect requests to only people you know are on LinkedIn. You’ll get a better connection response and avoid bothering people with unnecessary messaging.

Americans will head to the polls next month to elect a president, but in the corporate world, being a president doesn't always make you the big cheese.

When it comes to business leadership, what is the difference between #CEO and president?

Foremost, the definition depends on the corporate governance and structure of a business. But there are some general rules of thumb. A president typically fills a more operational role, the day-to-day running of a business. A chief executive officer provides the bigger picture strategy and vision for growth.

The president is usually second in command to the CEO. A CEO often also serves as Chairman of the company’s Board of Directors. They interact with some of the same stakeholders, such as customers and employees. But as the public face of a company, a CEO also works with shareholders, media, analysts, and more.
