Welcome back to the MBA Working Girl Podcast-Where Business Theory and the Real World Collide! I'm your host, Laura Adams.

MBA Essential Tip:
Have you ever wondered what all the new MBA programs are about and what they cost? Why aren't there so many options for nursing school or engineering programs? The reason is simple demand for the MBA degree. Whether you want to go back to school during the day, weeknight, weekend, or via computer, there's a program for you! MBA programs are certainly a great profit center for many public and private universities these days.
Getting an advanced business degree is a great feather in your cap that can help you get:
-More responsibility
-More income
-More credibility
-Flexibility to change careers
-More security in a down economy
-Marketable skills and training
-More confidence
-A wider professional network

-What's appropriate workplace Fun?
-Benefits of having Fun in the workplace
-Rate your own Soft Skill set

Welcome back to the MBA Working Girl Podcast-Where Business Theory and the Real World Collide! I'm your host, Laura Adams.

MBA Essential Tip:
Is "having fun at work" just another management trend du jour? Perhaps, but I do believe that our greatest performance comes when we:  enjoy what we do for a living, enjoy the people we work with, and feel a sense of shared commitment. If having good, clean fun at work can enhance those 3 variables and ultimately be beneficial for an organization - why not have some fun?
Think about integrating fun into your company culture by scheduling it each year in advance. Perhaps once a month or once a quarter you have an off-site event for your entire company or department. Maybe it's bowling, paint balling, roller skating, or team sports like softball, kickball, or soccer. It's great to have fun as a reward - but also think about workplace fun as a necessity to keep morale up and teamwork working!

"A smile is the shortest distance between people." -Victor Borge (1909-2000)

Do you think it's appropriate or professional to have fun at work? In this episode we'll discuss the definition of workplace fun. I'll reveal  some of the many benefits and I'll share with you what's NOT considered fun in the workplace!

You'll also hear about Soft Skills - specifically the 3 most important ones to master for personal and organizational success.

-Is Going Green a good business strategy?
-10 Ideas that make it Easy to Be Green
-Moving into Business from a non-Business career

Welcome back to the MBA Working Girl Podcast-Where Business Theory and the Real World Collide! I'm your host, Laura Adams.

MBA Essential Tip:
Does it always make economic sense for a company to Go Green? The answer depends on your specific business industry and size. What does a company have to do to honestly promote themselves as a Green business?
We still need more comprehensive data to understand what's really good for the Earth. For example, is an electric car a good product because it doesn't emit pollutants into the air - or is it a bad product because of the huge amount of fuel that must be burned to produce the electricity required to power the car for one year.
With time, Green technology will evolve and the data will enable businesses and consumers to clearly see the right choices they should  make. Environmentalism seems to hit a nerve with so many people. And many companies are promoting their Green-ness in an effort to capitalize on the customers' fuzzy knowledge about what is eco-ethical right now. But there are many opportunities for companies who can truthfully position their products, services, or culture as being Green.


"There are no passengers on spaceship earth. We are all crew." -Marshall McLuhan (1911-1980)

In this episode we'll talk about the growing trend of "Going Green".  I'll share my thoughts on how it can fit into your business strategy. And if you're not already turning Green, I have 10 easy tips that you can immediately use to Green Up some more at your home office or workplace!
And maybe you're thinking about moving into a Business career from a non-Business career such as Education.  I'll recommend some ways to think about this type of transition and to prepare for it.


We have a new voicemail number - please send in a question or comment by calling 206-888-2337.

-Should you settle a lawsuit out of Court?
-Using Virtual Assistants
-Review for Riches Contest, win $100!!!

Welcome back to the MBA WGP-Where Business Theory and the Real World Collide! I'm your host, Laura Adams.

MBA Essential Tip:
It's becoming more common for companies to require their employees to sign an agreement that they will not initiate a lawsuit against the company.  Instead, as a condition of employment, all work-related disputes must go to binding arbitration or nonbinding mediation.  This provides a less expensive and faster method to resolve disputes than a jury trial.  Under some state laws, arbitration agreements are not enforceable unless they contain certain protections for employees, such as a neutral arbitrator.  But it's interesting to note that the U.S. Supreme Court has upheld mandatory arbitration of employment claims, even those based on federal statutes. 

"Pride sullies the noblest character" -Claudianus

Don't miss this show where we discuss 12 points to consider when you're faced with a lawsuit.  This can be an emotional time when your pride can lead you in the wrong direction.

I'll share some information about a company called Brickwork at www.b2kcorp.com and using a Virtual Assistant. 
And don't miss out on your chance to win $100 in the Reviews for Riches Contest at Podcast Pickle at www.podcastpickle.com.  You simply need to type up a short review for the show by Friday, Sept. 7th at 1:59pm Central Time-DON'T DELAY!
