Former Publisher of Inc. Magazine Shares His Business Insight


The former Publisher of Inc. Magazine John Tebeau talked about business personalities at a recent forum sponsored by the Palisades Institute.

The former Publisher of Inc. Magazine shared his business insight at the Palisades Institute Forum on November 17, in the Lawrence Room of Rosary Hall.  John Tebeau talked to the business leaders and students in attendance about what makes a good leader and the different types of work personalities.   

Tebeau said throughout his career he has seen leadership styles in all shapes and sizes.   “Never underestimate who it is you are talking to.  Every relationship and personality you need to take seriously,” he said. 

Tebeau then explained the work-type personality theory of Les McKeon, who is the President and CEO of Predictable Success and has started more than 40 companies.  McKeon believes that everyone who participates in group or team work tends to act in one of three naturally-occurring styles:  visionary, operator or processor.  Visionaries generate creative ideas.  Operators translate those ideas into tasks and “get stuff done.”  Processors are compelled by data and like to bring order to the situation. The problem, said Tebeau, is that these three work personalities don’t “play well together in the sandbox.”

Tebeau said that for a team to be successful, one of the team players must also be a synergist – focused primarily on what is best for the enterprise. A synergist must be good at time management, priority management, crisis management and delegation. 


Symposium Educates Parents and Health Care Professionals About Concussions


Parents, health care professionals, and nursing students listened to top experts on concussions during Dominican College’s Healthcare Symposium entitled “Concussions: What You Need to Know” on Monday, November 16 in the Prusmack Center.    

The evening symposium was moderated by Dr. N. Noel Testa, Former Clinical Professor of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, NYU Langone Medical Center, and a Consultant with the Department of Education NYC, Public School Athletic League.  Dr. Testa urged those in attendance to become educated and find out what kind of concussion programs their school has.    “I am asking all of you, as parents, guardians and educators to get yourself involved,”  he said. ” You’ve got to go into the schools.  You’ve got to ask what is going on.”

The experts stressed that a concussion may not cause you to lose consciousness, and it may not be detected by an MRI. Coaching staff should be aware that the signs of a concussion include an athlete who appears dazed or stunned, is confused about an assignment or moves clumsily.  Athletes should be aware of symptoms including a headache, nausea, balance problems, double vision, and confusion. 

One of the panelists, Dr. John Galluci, who is the Medical Coordinator of Major League Soccer and the President of JAG Physical Therapy, said that awareness of concussions has increased greatly,  “What this has really done – and I call it the concussion revolution – is put healthcare first now in sports.”  Dr. Gallucci said the team approach is critical and nurses, certified athletic trainers, physical therapists and doctors need to advocate every day. 

This is the third annual Healthcare Symposium presented by Dominican College.
