    By Mark C. Crowley (@MarkCCrowley via @FastCompany), Fast Company

    Author and speaker, Mark C. Crowley, breaks down how to enhance the success of all your future decision-making, along with how to prevent you from making choices you end up regretting.

    By Larry Robertson (@lrspeaks via @SmartBrief and @SBLeaders), SmartBrief

    Assembling as a panel to symbolically represent the way forward, three leaders come together to discuss the future of work. Here's what they had to say.

    In early February 2021, three of the world’s most successful leaders came together: Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, Walmart CEO Doug McMillon, and Jim Fish, CEO of Waste Management. They gathered (virtually, of course) to talk about the volatile and uncertain year we just experienced and, more importantly, the future yet to come…”
