SpyFu.com’s New Tool Uses PPC Dollars Spent to Value Organic Rankings

Have yet to test this new analysis tool from SpuFu.com, but it looks very promising.  A mentor of mine Paul Allen, said this method is one of the best ways to validate the use of SEO inside of a business. Using the dollar spent data from PPC, one can determine the value of ranking organically for that term.

48% said they would fire their boss if they could, 29% would have their boss assessed by a workplace psychologist

Statistics on Bosses: Leaders or Managers, Who Makes a Good Boss?

Leadership is very different than management. A good boss may have leadership skills and management skills but use them interchangeably at appropriate times. A leader inspires, leads by example, and forges the way for others. A manager focuses on assigning tasks, making sure those tasks are completed, and that the employees have the resources needed to complete such tasks.

“48% of employees would like to fire their boss; 29% would like to have their boss assessed by a psychologist” — badbossology.com

I referred to this statistic once before. Possibly those bosses who employees would like to fire are more managerial oriented than they should be. A great quote sums it up.
