How Coaching Soccer Applies to Work

For those that know me, it has been well known that I despise soccer. I have never enjoyed watching it or playing it. When my son Evan first started playing sports, I told him he can only play soccer until he turns 7, and he promptly quit to concentrate on other sports. So, there was much amusement from my friends and family when I was asked to help coach my daughter’s 6-year old soccer team.  I explained that I don’t know soccer and I don’t like the sport, but my daughter Ella was so excited, so I said yes.

Netflix’s Okja and Cloud Financial Reporting: The Parallels of Powerful Storytelling

CPMnetflixThis article will look at the power of modern cloud financial reporting through the lens of powerful storytelling, as delivered by Netflix’s Okja.

But unfortunately, with the amount of content and sheer number of options to stream, view, or purchase movies, television, and other video, it’s hard for any particular movie to stand out and captivate such a wide audience. That said, I have recently watched a Netflix original film, called Okja, and while it definitely got a solid promotional campaign in my part of the world, I don’t think it has quite permeated the culture the way that it arguably should have. However, a key takeaway for this one-time English major was the power of storytelling as a way to enable decision-making. This article will focus on how the right kind of storytelling can drive world-class decision-making, from Okja to financial reporting.

What #ThisisSolver Means, a Spotlight on the Solver Culture

This article takes a closer look at the company culture at Solver.

solverawardsIn this article, I’ll be covering Solver’s culture, both internally and externally – and how that has changed the way I view work and my work ethic. In America, we work an average of 40-47 hours per week. According to Investopedia, “corporate culture refers to the beliefs and behaviors that determine how a company’s employees and management interact and handle outside business transactions.” Corporate culture has arguably always been important, but it’s only become so popular, almost a “buzzword” in the past decade, maybe because of the start-up phenomenon. Culture is often a prime factor in long-term organizational success. Also, a culture’s success depends on an organization’s business market, strategies and workforce.
