 Michelle Obama And Ivanka Trump Show You Two Ways To Give A Knockout Speech
Both women's masterful convention addresses showcase two powerful speaking styles: one cinematic, the other percussive.There are many ways to be a bad speaker and many ways to be a good one. Those twinned truths have been on display during the Republican and Democratic National Conventions this week and last. And while their backgrounds and politics differ quite a bit, Michelle Obama and Ivanka Trump delivered two of the most memorable and compelling addresses—for similar but different reasons.Read Full Story

 How Hampton Creek's Plant-Based Foods Have Scrambled The Grocery Aisle
From yolk-free mayo to chickenless "eggs," Hampton Creek CEO Josh Tetrick has a vision for a new kind of food chain.From Silicon Valley to SoMa, the Bay Area is packed with blockbuster companies that were built on little more than a good idea. But there's only one that was built on a condiment. Three years ago, Hampton Creek's Just Mayo, which swaps a protein derived from Canadian yellow peas for the eggs that help emulsify oil into sandwich-spreadable goodness, appeared in Whole Foods (and, later, Walmart and Kroger) stores across the nation. Among an increasingly influential coalition of shoppers—ethics-minded consumers, along with vegans and people with food allergies—it was an instant hit. To a casual observer, vegan mayonnaise hardly seemed like the opening salvo in a war to capture supermarket-aisle space from giants like Unilever, Kraft, and Nestlé. To Josh Tetrick, the 36-year-old founder of San Francisco–based Hampton Creek, it was that and more. A high school football star from Birmingham, Alabama, who still speaks with a Southern drawl, Tetrick sees the entire global food system as an opportunity for the kind of rip-it-up-and-start-again thinking at which Silicon Valley excels. Or as he puts it, flashing a wolfish grin, "I want us to be the biggest food company on the planet. And I want us to do some good at the same time."Read Full Story

 How To Project Authority Right After You Get Promoted
How do you get former peers and supervisors to take you seriously as a boss when everyone remembers the mistakes you made years ago?When employees take on leadership roles at new companies, they typically enter with a certain mystique. It's likely that no one saw you in the early years, when you were green or made some big mistakes. Or, if someone who knew you then brought you to where you are now, they clearly think enough of you to understand how you've grown over the years.Read Full Story

 Why Marissa Mayer's Ultimate Talent Acquisition Strategy Failed
For four years, Marissa Mayer tried to save Yahoo. One of her big strategies—acquire, acquire, acquire—didn't pan out. Here's why.Though the writing has been on the wall for months—if not years—Yahoo has finally been acquired. Verizon has scooped up the company to the tune of $4.8 billion. For many, this is the beginning of the end of a years-long saga to fix a seemingly broken digital media company; Verizon says it will use the new assets to build a digital media empire. For others, it's just another chance to pile on the blame game for CEO Marissa Mayer.Read Full Story

 Virgin America's New App Puts A Travel Agent In Your Pocket
The airline's new app by Work & Co launches in beta this week.Travel agents were among the first casualties of the Internet age, rendered obsolete by websites that let travelers select and book their own flights. But considering how time-consuming and complex it can be to hunt down the right seat at the right time and for the best price (be honest—how many airline tabs did you have open the last time you tried to fly?), some of us may be nostalgic for the golden age of travel in which your trusted agent knew your preferences—where you fly most frequently, window or aisle seat, first class or economy—completed the booking to those specifications, and bid you a polite bon voyage.Read Full Story
