I hope all is well and that you’re keeping your focus for you and the people who rely on you at work and at home.

This week we’re introducing a new feature: the DBE Client Spotlight. We’ll periodically share what our clients have been up to and encourage you to check them out.

News For You, a Business Leader Intent on Growth

I hope you enjoy this week’s issue of What’s Hot Wednesday for Business Leaders as much as I enjoyed pulling it together for you.

  • Cool tech! We’re testing these out at DBE and we’ll let you know what we think after we do, but we thought, why wait! Isn’t this device cool? It easily adds 2 more screens to your laptop. Now you can work with multiple screens away from your desk!

  • Here’s a great segment of the podcast “The Dan Nestle Show.” Dan’s talking with his guest, Michael Piperno, about key strategies for improving business communications. Great info there. And they also talk about their “career paths,” and if you’re coaching those new to their careers, the look back Dan and Michael share is sure to be helpful. They share insights to how the choices they made at various junctures can look like a “path” from the outside, but rather than a clear path, at the time each move felt more like a steppingstone and that over time, it looks more like a thread, with a common theme. Loved it and couldn’t wait to share it with you.
  • What do you think of this: Ryann Holmes, Chairman and Co-Founder of one of our favorite platforms, HootSuite, shares in this post about a cool program by Shopify. It’s a business starter kit for kids. Such a great idea.

  • And this from Fast Company: when you need new talent, revisit the talent already on your team.

Do Good Spotlight on: Charity Water’s Tiny Heros

Kids are doing inspiring, heartwarming, and over-the-top incredible things for clean water, so Charity: Water created an annual award to celebrate these “Tiny Heroes.” They recently announced the six winners for this year and are sharing those kids’ stories. Fascinating! These kids helped raise $1.8 million, benefitting over 45,000 people. Read about them, their projects, and how to help this organization that’s helping us all with water-sustainability projects and technologies. We donated to Charity: Water this week and encourage you to consider doing the same.


That’s the shares for this week. I hope the rest of your week is a good combination of fun and productive. Catch you next week. In the meantime, enjoy!
