    3. Pick your PR persona and run with it

      Pick your PR persona and run with it

      As an editor here at Fast Company’s Leadership section, I witness all kinds of entrepreneurial posturing every single day. Most founders–at least when they interact with the press–make a point of sounding enthused and confident, or humble and self-deprecating, or dead serious and mission-driven. Pick your PR persona and run with it. But it’s far more interesting to glimpse how leaders actually communicate with their teams behind the scenes.

      In the age of Amazon, an entrepreneur explains what will make us want to go to the store

      Rachel Shechtman has retail in her blood. Her mother was in the gourmet food business and her grandparents and great grandparents owned a fabric store. In 2011, Shechtman launched her own rotating shop in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood. STORY, her business, is entirely reinvented every three to eight weeks like a gallery, has a point of view like a magazine and sells things like a store. When we visited, the theme was Fresh STORY, a collaboration with Jet.com to promote fresh food. We spoke to Shechtman for our Making Sen$e segment about how shifting consumer habits are forcing stores to either transform or perish.

    5. How to Work with a Bad Listener - What?

      It’s frustrating to work with people who don’t listen. Whether your colleagues interrupt you, ramble on, or seem distracted, the impact is the same: you feel ignored and the chances for misunderstandings — and mistakes — rise. There are, however, ways you can encourage your colleagues to listen better. First, consider their work styles. Ask them how they like to receive information. Some people are visual; others are verbal. Second, be an empathetic listener.

    6. HelloFresh Thought People Wanted Beautiful Food. They Didn't.

      HelloFresh Thought People Wanted Beautiful Food. They Didn't.

      When the food is plated and put next to the toys, she’ll find ways to mess that up, too. That’s because HelloFresh has come to an important realization that all companies must in some way embrace: There can be a big gap between how a company talks to its customers and how customers want to be talked to. HelloFresh was once on the wrong side of that -- portraying meals that didn’t reflect its customers’ reality. “It’s easier to make food look as nice as possible,” Parsey says, as two cooks prepare today’s meals nearby, “but then we have to remember that Barbara in Kansas has five kids, and she isn’t wiping down the plate before serving.”

      How Successful People Make Decisions Differently

      We make hundreds of big and small decisions every day.

      How to Manage Someone Who Thinks Everything Is Urgent

      We’ve all been in situations in which we couldn’t wait for a slow-moving or overly cautious employee to take action. But at the other extreme, some employees have such a deep need to get things resolved that they move too quickly, too intensely, and make a mess. They may make a bad deal just to be able to say they’ve made the deal, or issue a directive without thinking through the ramifications just to say they’ve handled a problem decisively.
