The Right Way to Respond to Negative Feedback | Extraordinary Business

by Kris Cavanaugh Castro

Have you ever had the experience when everything seemed to be going well and you felt you were doing a fantastic job, only to have that perception come to an abrupt halt when someone asks you, “Are you open to receiving some constructive feedback?”  That very question can often be a trigger that releases the “no so nice” aspects of our personality if we aren’t…

6 Techniques to Make Your Small Business Hiring More Effective | Extraordinary Business

by Fatima Mansoor

The human resource is considered the resource to create all other resources. And for smaller businesses, the stakes for good hiring are higher because each new employee is a bigger part of their business. For example, adding a new member to a 10-people company means increasing 10% of the workforce. That’s the impact of the new hire for a small business. So you need to…

Narrative Memos Replace PowerPoints at Amazon | Extraordinary Business

by Kris Cavanaugh Castro

Meetings…. UGH!  More than not, they feel like a necessary “evil” most especially when you are a part of multiple teams or a part of a large organization.  But it’s not the meeting itself that’s the problem, rather it’s more often how it’s run and in what format the information is delivered.
