Mindful management strategies from Legwork and ReCourses

I saw the above “What We Learned” video back on Jan. 3, thanks to the team from talent management and representation firm Shortlist – and I’ve been thinking about it a lot ever since. The video was produced by full-service creative studio (crusher of “deadlines and beers!”) Legwork Studio. Many of the ideas they have so colorfully addressed bring to mind the lessons I’ve learned myself over the past year, including those I’ve explored with the help of ReCourses, Inc., a premier provider of business management advice to small marketing firms worldwide via principal David C. Baker. The free bimonthly newsletters I’ve received have all brought me extremely mindful and important messages, at times when the contained arguments and wisdoms were especially appreciated. Based in Nashville, David is the author of the 2010 book
Managing (Right) for the First Time.

To give you a better sense of what you may have been missing out on, here are the headlines for some of the 2010 editions of David’s thoughtful ReCourses. To ensure you’ll have a great story to tell about your business at this time next year, a free subscription to David’s mailing list is heartily advised.
