Growing Markets and Industry Segments

Global Waste Management Market Predicted to Grow:

I like this…

Europe and North America are expected to witness high demand for global waste treatment disposal services mainly owing to strict environmental and government norms relevant to the proper management and disposal of waste. Furthermore, developing economies in Asia-Pacific and the Rest of the World are anticipated to experience high growth due to the continual growth of countries such as India, Russia, Brazil, and China, and the rapid pace of industrialization in these countries.

Major players dominating the global waste treatment disposal market include EnviroSolutions Incorporated, Waste Connections Incorporated, Allied Waste Industries, Clean Harbors Incorporated, and Environmental Quality Company. Other key players influencing the global market are Casella Waste Systems Incorporated, Tyco International Limited, Waste Management Incorporated, and Waste Industries USA Incorporated.

The Most (and Least) Empathetic Companies, 2016 from Harvard Business Review

Guess what top global companies have (and which ones lack) the most empathetic cultures and retain the best talent?

 

This list surprised me!

Check it out here!

 

 

How was the research compiled? I find the combination of analyzing tweets, Glassdoor and reported scandals quite fascinating:

…We break down empathy into categories: ethics, leadership, company culture, brand perception, and public messaging through social media. Our publicly available metrics including CEO approval ratings from staff, ratio of women on boards, and number of accounting infractions and scandals. This year we added a carbon metric. The financial information came from S&P Capital IQ, and the employee information from Glassdoor. We analyzed 2 million tweets from between September 27 and October 16 this year. An additional source of qualitative data expanded the survey: We used a panel selected from the World Economic Forum’s Young Global Leaders. The leaders were asked to rate the companies’ morality.

Steps to Turn Off the Nagging Self-Doubt in Your Head

Very good article on creating “good habits” with your thought patterns!

Think of the last time you told yourself something critical or negative. Then think of the last compliment you gave yourself.

Which is easier to remember?

Many of us—whether due to genetics, brain chemistry, our experiences or coping skills—tell ourselves way too many negative thoughts. We ruminate, thinking the same negative, unproductive thoughts over and over.

Happy Thanksgiving Week!

I am thankful for the gift of life. To celebrate, it is my pleasure to share an amazing TED talk.

Image-maker Alexander Tsiaras, Associate professor of medicine & Chief of Scientific Visualization at Yale University shares things that have never been seen before using new visualization technology. Enjoy this beautiful, short 9 minute video. Professor Tsiaras shares at the end of the video that their discoveries left him (as a mathematician) completely baffled – simply calling the complexity of the mathematical models of creation of human life, “beyond human comprehension. Divinity. A mystery.” http://www.bbc.com/future/story/20120702-conception-to-birth-visualized

Iconic Executives Without College Degrees

An advanced degree is certainly helpful in any business climate-no one disputes that. But degrees do not guarantee success and true entrepreneurs and leaders often have other special talents and virtues that empower them to achieve great success. I work with many executives who do NOT have their advanced degree and some have no college degree at all – and they share with me in confidence that they worry about the perception of that.

To be sure we are looking at the picture of success with eyes wide open, let’s take a look at just a very small list of executives (in no particular order) who did NOT obtain their college degree:

Ted Turner, Time Warner / AOL Philanthropist

Ralph Lauren, Ralph Lauren Corporation

Anna Wintour, English Editor-In-Chief of American Vogue

Sheldon Adelson, CEO and Chairman of Las Vegas Sands

Bill Gates, Co-Founder of Microsoft Corp

Steve Jobs, The late Co-Founder of Apple

Matt Mullenweg, Founder of WordPress

Larry Ellison, the CEO of Oracle

Arash Ferdowsi, Co-Founder of Dropbox

Mark Zuckerberg, Founder of Facebook 

David Neeleman, Founder of JetBlue Airways

Susan Lyne, CEO of AOL’s Content Brands

John Mackay, Founder of Whole Foods

Michael Dell, Chairman and CEO of Dell
