9 Things That Motivate Employees More Than Money (guest post)

Original post:   Author:  Ilya Pozin     Be generous with praise. Everyone wants it and it’s one of the easiest things to give. Plus, praise from the CEO goes a lot farther than you might think. Praise every improvement that you see your team members make. Once you’re comfortable delivering praise one-on-one to an employee, try praising them in front of others.     Get rid of the managers. Projects without project managers? That doesn’t seem right! Try it. Removing the project lead or supervisor and empowering your staff to work together as a team rather then everyone reporting to one individual can do wonders. Think about it.

We’re at No. 8 on a list of most phished sites, which is better than being No. 1. I’m not satisfied with being No. 8 and I’d really like to obliterate the crime completely, but I realize that will take another five years to get to that state. Ohoooo…..Wow…. Mr. Barret, please wake up…. You’re dreaming, and in this dream, Paypal is actually no longer no. 1 in the top of the most phished brands. In my top in…

Olympus is not dead, not even sleeping

I am a big fan of Olympus’ digital cameras. I own a C 750 UZ and the SLR E-500 together with its “accessories” Zuiko Digital lenses 14-45mm, 40-150mm, 18-180mm and the FL36 Olympus flash. I heard rumours that Olympus is not fighting anymore on the photography market. Nothing can be so far away from the truth. Here is the proof of the good news : 1. Zuiko Digital Lenses 2. All SLR Cameras and especially the new SLR cameras E-410, E-510 and the famous E-1 successor Also, there are a bunch of new compact cameras which are top models.
