As an AOM graduate, many of us are either business managers or entrepreneurs and business owners. Therefore, we invest a great deal of time, energy, and resources into building a company that we can be proud of. Insurance protects against certain risks, such as property damage, lawsuits, and employee injury/illness, just to name a few. Without business insurance, there’s the risk of paying for these types of losses, which can turn out to be very expensive. If you’re determined to become a future leader, protect yourself from legal headaches and unexpected costs that might arise down the road. Commercial insurance rates are set to rise in 2021, but that doesn’t ...

I retired from my first career as a Captain in the US Air Force. I also retired from a second career at IBM, where I built a consulting organization then led a Global sales organization. I have also tackled “small” projects like delivering computer science training on a subscription basis to 15,000 Junior and Senior ...

(posted on behalf of   @Ashley Roccapriore , PhD Representative) Managing Relationships: How to interact and engage with advisors   One of the things most doctoral students struggle with early in their careers is how to interact with those who have been at this career for a much longer time. With the large power distance of more senior faculty and increased imposter syndrome of new students (Keogh, 2020), it’s understandable that students struggle to figure out how to best engage with faculty at their universities and others. While this can be difficult for many, it’s something that is also extremely important for not only junior scholars’ ...

At this critical time in U.S. policymaking, I’m hoping you’ll join me in signing on to a letter to the Biden-Harris administration and members of Congress urging them to establish a national paid family and medical leave program as one of America’s top economic recovery priorities. The Biden-Harris administration is expected to propose a jobs and infrastructure package that will include “care infrastructure” and I hope you will agree that paid family and medical leave can and should be part of that package; it is also possible for Congress to consider stand-alone legislation. Our input and support as business and management experts can help make this possible. ...
