Today Edelman announced that Russell Dubner–who currently holds the position of president, Edelman New York–will be the next head and CEO of the firm’s entire U.S. operation. Effective June 1st, Dubner will oversee Edelman’s fourteen U.S. offices after running the New York office for six years and managing its 800 employees.

Dubner has been deeply involved in various internal Edelman initiatives for some time, contributing to the firm’s Participation Platform, thought leadership methodology and Master Narrative approach to corporate communications. In addition to his new title and responsibilities, Dubner’s promotion also earns him a spot on Edelman’s Executive Committee. Dubner will report to global COO Matthew Harrington; the fact that he joined the firm as an entry-level account exec in 1992 should provide some encouragement for the optimistic...

Making feedback count

4 hours ago

?If you are a manager the only way you can get things done is through other people. You are effective only to the extent that you know how to communicate, inspire and support others.? I find that quote, by Silicon Valley management consultant Andrea Corney, interesting. Because it shows that while technical skills are important for success in business, ?soft skills? ?  like communication ? are equally valuable, if not more so. Some of us have been lucky enough to have/have had managers in our lives who could ?communicate, inspire and support?, like Andrea Corney says. I know I have, and it has been a wonderful experience. I?ve also had the other kind ? and, well, let?s just say it was much less wonderful. There is no getting around it. One important communication skill that can be hard for managers to get right, is giving good feedback. For some people, ?telling it like it is? carries negative associations of bad manners and interpersonal conflict. Others, though, count well-given f...

America?s Most Elitist Crossword Puzzle Uses ?Fo? Shizzle?

4 hours ago

Yes, my nizzles. That’s the New York Times, fo’ rizzle! In case you have absolutely no clue what that cutline says, no worries. I speak “Snoop Dogg.” According to the Urban Dictionary, “-izzle” is ”a suffix, often used by gangsters, used to cut off a word when one’s brain cannot process words with greater than three syllables.” “Izzle” was basically a cutsy lingo developed by the Snoop D-O-double-G. It was such a popular way to speak, screwing up anyone advocate of AP-style, that the New York Times covered it in 2004. I suppose since that day in almost a decade ago, editors at the “Old Grey (White) Lady” thought they accrued street swagger … so they included “Fo’ Shizzle” in their nationally respected crossword puzzle. What the fizzle?! continued… New Career Opportunities Daily: The best jobs in media.

How Do You Handle This?

Airbnb, the apartment sharing startup, has a problem with prostitution.  It seems Ladies of the Night are using its services for tricks.  The service doesn't seem worried about it, but one wonders if it should be.  What if people stop renting out apartments and rooms because they are afraid of the type of person who might take up residence?  Airbnb's source of revenue will dry and its growth wither.  It seems the company needs to do a better job of screening, but there will always be some who slip through.  The questions are how many and how dangerous they might be to apartment owners and room renters. Airbnb might need to do more than it has already done.In the case of one Airbnb apartment used for prostitution, the startup took immediate action to ensure the apartment owner had a safe place to stay, reimbursed her for property damage, and kicked the Airbnb guest off the service for good.

Spirit Airlines CEO Explains What You Get When You Fly on a Budget Airline

5 hours ago

The average consumer wants to get things on the cheap, but doesn’t always know what exactly that means. On its face, spending less money is always preferable. But when you actually experience the budget option, it can be disappointing. That’s exactly what Spirit Airlines is running up against. With the cost of air travel increasing, flyers are looking for a deal. Their eyes are drawn immediately to the low price tag. But then they take their flight and they’re looking for more. A couple of weeks ago, a story ran in The Dallas Morning News that included a stat from the US Public Interest Group showing that Spirit has the “highest rate of consumer complaints among US airlines.” Rather than get angry and defensive (at least not publicly), Spirit’s CEO Ben Baldanza decided that the problem could be a failure to communicate. After all, over the past five years, eight out of 100,000 customers have complained, leaving 99,992 people who didn’t. He decided to respond with an explanation. co...
