Facebook at Work Set to Launch in January

fb logoAccording to The Financial Times, Facebook is gearing up to introduce a new product in January allowing users to chat with colleagues, connect with professionals and collaborate.

It sounds like it’s going to look very similar like the Facebook as we know it today with its groups and constant newsfeed.

Veteran & Pinterest Executive Don Faul Talks Leadership at ‘Got Your 6′

What better way to celebrate veterans during today’s holiday than hear their stories and salute their bravery?

Last week we attended an empowering Got Your 6 event at HBO’s office in midtown Manhattan. In the military, “Got your six” means “I’ve got your back.” The initiative helps squash negative misconceptions and myths to civilians about veterans in terms of who they are and what they have to offer. As for veterans, the program ensures they’re empowered to lead by connecting to various veteran organizations.

The storytellers event had a TED talk flair as each veteran took the stage to talk about their career and lessons learned in their own unique delivery.

Let’s take a look at U.S. Marine Corps veteran Don Faul’s talk focusing on leadership in the Silicon Valley. After all, he knows a thing or two about the topic. Faul’s the head of operations at Pinterest and previously worked at Facebook and Google.
