  • When There Is No Manual - Steffan Antonas
    from the very beginning all it really takes to move things forward is keeping people motivated and on task If everyone knows their role and team members direct themselves to get their part done you really only need someone to organize and report which isn t necessarily leading It s managing Effective leaders are the ones who take charge in a group when a task or problem is completely new the next step isn t obvious and there is no manual When others hesitate and look to their peers for answers the leaders are the ones who are busy breaking the problem down creating structure where there is none and developing a plan that they can communicate and act on When new problems that require novel solutions come your team s way take a moment and observe who everyone looks to when someone asks what do we do now Those are the people who are really leading Published January 14 2010 Author Steffan Antonas Category Business Entrepreneurship Psychology Philosophy Tags Leadership Management Comments 4 Comments Post navigation Previous Post BART Teams up with Foursquare to Add Some Fun For Commuters Next Post Here Come The GeoWeb Wars 4 Comments vadadean

  • What Would You Do Tomorrow If You Were Laid Off Today? - Steffan Antonas
    Giddy up indeed It s not about changing the entire world though is it If you re doing something meaningful that has a positive affect on others even if it s only in your corner that s what counts ericavolkman December 2 2009 at 8 17 am Yes I do as well I feel like I am not so good at it part time though because it takes me so much longer to get back to people and get things done I would love if I could dedicate myself full time to freelance again I did for about 8 months last year but could not make ends meet I did learn a lot and know what I will do differently next time But the smart thing for me would be to save up some money first so thats the plan If I got laid off tomorrow though I would make it work and welcome the opportunity Steffan Antonas December 2 2009 at 8 52 am I do the same And you re right It is tough to turn things around quickly when you have a full time job and you re working in your free time It s hard to generate that focus and momentum after you get home at night and on the weekends Full time freelancing and making ends meet is surely the most fulfilling way to live it s not a work style It s a life style Have you read escape from cubicle nation yet I ordered it for Christmas reading ericavolkman December 2 2009 at 9 14 am I have not read Escape from Cubicle Nation but I will have to pass that along to Santa Freelancing is definitely a way of life Thanks Steffan Alan Underkofler December 2 2009 at 9 45 am Loved the movie Steffan It really makes me grateful to be out of the corporate environment as an employee Not having to worry about this at all is a great place to be In the comments you mentioned Whats stopping you from doing this now To me this is the big take away from the post If you watch the move and have a desire to do something different start something new change the world or just your corner of it why not start today I think too many people feel stuck in their job and do not realize that they could start creating a PLAN B at any time What better to have a PLAN B going so if your PLAN A gives you a lemon you are ready to make lemonade Steffan Antonas December 2 2009 at 10 07 am Alan How could I not appreciate your enthusiasm I actually asked the question because I think it s an important one If you check the reply to my question Erica says I did freelancing for about 8 months last year but could not make ends meet Everyone has a dream but not everyone has a plan or the means

  • Design Thinking Archives - Steffan Antonas
    lot to do with cost Across many industries and trades the price of buying an education has risen so high in the last 20 years that the cost of earning a degree eclipses what you can earn post degree Naturally a lot of young people are rethinking their need to seek formal education as a direct result Rightfully so Most importantly we re starting to see broader negative consequences materializing across the country skills across the population in important categories like math and science are declining in the aggregate for instance Not good Clearly something s got to give Currently about seventy five million young people are unemployed globally and are looking for work I don t know the statistics in the US but in the UK there are apparently around 1 million people between 16 and 24 who are unemployed As I m typing this OpenIDEO Barclays and The Work Foundation are supporting an open challenge to crowdsource solutions to help young people move into employment They ve framed the problem as one that applies mostly to the young but I d argue that it applies to anyone in the workforce who s been laid off or would like
