Helping to Keep Your Finger on the Pulse of Business

Back-Office Bulletin works hard to live up to our tagline by “keeping an ear to the ground and our finger on the pulse” of what affects businesses, and in particular those who lead in business (and in life). Sometimes we examine topics over a number of posts, such as our Attributes of Leadership and Causes of Leadership Failure series. At other times, we pick topics relevant to business leadership. We like to think we’re doing a good job and providing you with timely information that you can immediately use.

No matter how good our posts are, they only come a twice a week (sometimes a little more often). Yet there is a world of information out there, and sometimes sifting through it all is difficult. That’s why we created our Facebook page. There, Monday through Friday (and often on Saturday as well), five times a day (at least), we feature timely articles by thought leaders culled from around the net. Here’s a sampling of some of our more popular recent posts:
