Bringing Buried Treasure to the Surface: Creating the MRG Knowledge Base

By on Thursday, February 27, 2020

“Content.”  It’s a word that has taken on a different meaning in the digital age. In marketing, it’s come to distinguish content marketing – information people actually want to have (expertise, instruction, research, guides) – from the junk they’d rather do without. When I arrived at MRG a few years ago, what I found was […]

By on Thursday, February 13, 2020

Entrepreneurial: it’s been a bit of a buzzword of late. The influence of startup culture – picture youthful innovators with big ideas who dress like teenagers don’t take no for an answer – has permeated even the most staid organizations.

By on Thursday, February 6, 2020

There’s a lot to love about being headquartered in Portland, Maine – fresh seafood, gorgeous summers, beautiful views, an amazing food scene (…we won’t discuss the winters).

Why Pausing to Access Wisdom is Worth It

By on Thursday, October 10, 2019

“Why?” It’s a question my toddler asks pretty frequently (okay, very frequently). But last week, when he asked it from the back seat of the car as I turned toward the highway on ramp, his question was just enough to knock me out of auto-pilot mode. I realized that I was about to get on […]

5 Ways to Banish the Myth of the Heroic Leader (and Start Getting Stronger Results with Shared Leadership)

By on Thursday, September 19, 2019

In the 21st century, leadership has changed. In many ways, that’s a good thing. An “old world” leadership model might have valued leaders who focused on bottom-line results to the exclusion of the more human aspects of their “human capital.” Sensitivity was unheard of. Coaching?
