This is my most recent article in the Online Jamaica Gleaner.
I thought this title was better than the one I came up with, whatever that was!
This week’s edition of the Jamaica Gleaner’s JobSmart series: Staying in Touch.
Written by me.
The following excerpt was used as the basis for an article to be published in next week’s issue of JobSmart: follow the link www.go-jamaica.com/jobsmart.

From an article in HBR, August 2003, by Larry Summers, ex-President of Harvard University:
“But what is most special about the American research university is that it is a place where the authority of ideas, rather than the idea of authority, reigns supreme. At Harvard, we consider it an extremely important accomplishment when a 25-year old graduate student who has been here a mere 18 months makes a discovery that disproves the pet theory of a 55-year old professor who has been here 30 years. Indeed, the professor whose theory has been disproved might be the first to congratulate that graduate student.”
Hmm… food for thought, as this applies so far and wide in Caribbean societies — in business, academia, the church and elsewhere.
A new article I wrote was published in JobSmart today entitled Returning Calls and Replying to Emails.
Any comments or questions on the article can be left here.
I recently wrote an article entitled “Managing Your Own Time”
This week, there were a couple of articles on the topic of networking in the Gleaner, referencing some of the work of Framework Consulting.
An article entitled: Building an Online Presence was written primarily for young professionals in the JobSmart section of the Gleaner Online
Also, an article entitled: Networking: Moving Beyond the Cocktail Circuit summarizing the JEF convention 2007 speech recently given.
