Leadership is a Response to Environment

Jul 13, 2009Business & Life
Have you ever heard that leadership in a company is a lot like a farmer and his garden? The farmer picks the lot, tills the soil, plants the seeds, and then watches as his garden grows. In a small technology company it is imperative that leadership comes from the top but even more essential is that there is an environment for other leaders to emerge. If there is one thing I have learned over the years it’s to not be intimidated by people that bring something different to the table. The best leaders are not intimidated by other great leaders as the Corporate Communication Training Course with CJM explains.

This may be difficult for some leaders but it is absolutely essential to any technology start up.Read More

These php software developers work relentlesRead More

ClickPoint – The Beginning

Dec 02, 2008Business & Life
I wanted to start our blog off with the story of how we became ClickPoint.  I think it’s always important to get a good feel for an organization before you do business with them.  In all truthfulness I never imagined that I would be running a software company. I got my started working for a site called I always envisioned myself working as the head of an ad agency, marketing company, or some kind of organization where I could use the creative side.  It all happened about 6 years ago when I got my first real experience working with programmers and developers on small projects for a marketing company where I was vice president.  I immediately saw that although you have to be much more patient with software there is tremendous opportunity to use your creative attributes.Read More
