Leadership Tip of the Month:
Know What Employees Want in a Leader

A recent article outlined seven things employees expect from their leadership. Here are the top four:
  1. Specificity. Be clear, direct and explain what you want in plain language.
  2. Empowerment. Give employees the tools and freedoms to make decisions and learn from failures.
  3. Vulnerability. Don't pretend you have all the answers; ask for help when and where you need it.
  4. Honesty. Tell the whole truth -- even when it's tough.

Fact of the Month:
Record Fine for Unauthorized Workers

In June 2015, ICE issued a record-setting civil penalty of $2.25 million against Broetje Orchards in Washington State.
