“Not too little, not too big, but just right.” We can thank Goldilocks’s innovative decision-making strategies for giving us this antiquated quote. However, unlike Goldilocks, it is not just the temperature of our porridge or the softness of our beds raising skepticism. Instead, organizations are beginning to question the number of members on their board. How many board members is the right amount? What size enables an organization to acquire desired results most effectively and efficiently?

Deadlines, projects that come up at the last minute and emails that can’t go unanswered-those are just some of the reasons why employees don’t use their paid time off (PTO). With social media, email and texting, immediate responses are expected and it can often feel as if you can’t pry yourself away from your desk for some downtime to refresh. Expedia’s Annual Vacation Deprivation Study indicated that unused vacation time is up to 59%-the highest it’s been in five years and up 8% from last year. When it comes to taking a break, it’s not only up to the employee to take a rest-the employer should be just as involved.
Talley Management Group, Inc. (TMG) proudly announces that it has been reaccredited by the Association Management Company Institute (AMC Institute).
