Michigan Leadership: Dug Song, CEO & Duo Security assisting former ForeSee employees after layoffs

Michigan Leadership: Dug Song, CEO & Duo Security assisting former ForeSee employees after layoffs | Change Leadership Watch | Scoop.it
In the wake of the second round of layoffs at Ann Arbor-based ForeSee, another local tech company is trying to help connect those now without jobs with companies looking for talent.
Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

These are Dug Song, ‪#‎leadership‬ lessons for ‪#‎Michigan‬ and any business in the area of layoffs.  Reaching out and helping the system of up and down business employment cycles, especially, as in the case of Duo Security, when your business is hiring when another is laying off, is simply good business smarts.  The way Duo Security is doing it is 21st century smart.  #HR #21stcentury #growth

Taking the Bet: Dan Gilbert’s Investment Gamble on Downtown Detroit

Taking the Bet:  Dan Gilbert’s Investment Gamble on Downtown Detroit | Change Leadership Watch | Scoop.it
Against tall odds, Dan Gilbert, the Quicken Loans chairman, is putting down money to revive a two-square-mile area that was once Detroit’s core.


...His plans, according to academics like Brent D. Ryan, author of “Design After Decline: How America Rebuilds Shrinking Cities,” amount to one of the most ambitious privately financed urban reclamation projects in American history.


Opportunity Detroit, as Mr. Gilbert has branded it, is both a rescue mission and a business venture....   When he started buying in 2011, the city was having what he has described as a “skyscraper sale.”
