NCET Biz Tips: Stop managing and start leading

Some may argue semantics here, but I think there is a sound argument in ditching the word manage altogether when it comes to describing a boss. Guide, support, challenge, lead… All of these words hold more relevance in a modern workplace than “manage” does. You’re in control of somebody’s future, their salary, their growth. And it is important to recognize that it can't be managed—only developed and supported. Doing that requires more than a set of rules or cause-and-effect guidelines. In fact, it requires a clear understanding of your employee’s hopes, dreams, goals (both personal and professional)—hell, even their kids’ names.

NCET Biz Tips: Cybersecurity for small businesses; dangers and outlooks

Over the past eight months, we have been researching the current cybersecurity climate specifically for small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). This research has shown a somewhat alarming trend; as larger companies get harder to attack, attackers are now focusing their attention on SMEs, and the attacks themselves are more targeted and damaging than ever before, with many attacks leading to small businesses having to close down completely. All of this is, of course, happening at a time when most small businesses are transitioning to teleworking solutions or having increased the use of digital tools to stay competitive in an ever-evolving market. Current governmental regulations are very specific to large companies, and there is virtually no current support system in place to help small businesses with this challenge.
