Don’t Skirt Important Issues During Your Next Meeting

Too many meetings drag on without participants discussing the real problems that need to be addressed. People talk around the important issues during the meeting and actually address them before or after it — which renders the meeting a waste of time and makes you, the meeting organizer, look bad. Combat this risk by explicitly asking that issues be discussed in the meeting, not outside of it. Be specific about the meeting’s topic, letting everyone know ahead of time what you expect their contributions to be. State the meeting’s purpose in the agenda, and reiterate it when the meeting begins, explaining that all problems should be raised in the room. While some people may resist your directness, calling out difficult issues at the start of a meeting will increase the likelihood of candid discussions rather than hallway gossip.

Don’t Let Pressure Turn into Stress

Pressure and stress are not the same thing. But the former is converted into the latter when you add one ingredient: rumination, the tendency to keep thinking about past or future events in a negative way. When you start ruminating (you’ll notice that your attention gets caught in an unproductive loop, like a hamster on a wheel), redirect yourself toward areas in which you can take useful action. Try this exercise: Draw a circle on a page. Write down all of the things you can control or influence inside the circle and all of the things you cannot outside it. Remind yourself that you can care about externalities (your work, your team, your family) without worrying about them. You can also put things in perspective by comparing a past stress with a current one — i.e., a major illness versus a missed sale — or by asking yourself “How much will this matter in three years’ time?” or “What’s the worst that could happen?”

Gross Margin
Gross margin is a company's total sales revenue minus its cost of goods sold (COGS), divided by total sales revenue, expressed as a percentage. The gross margin represents the percent of total sales revenue that the company retains after incurring the direct costs associated with producing the goods and services it sells. The higher the percentage, the more the company retains on each dollar of sales, to service its other costs and debt obligations.

Why All Values Are Not Created Equal: Understanding Terms and Bridging a Potential Valuation Gap
It is not uncommon for litigation to stem from disagreements over the value of privately held companies and ownership interests in those entities.  In those situations, many different values are often discussed as the parties attempt to reach a resolution.  It is important to make sure that the parties are speaking the same language as far as the type of value being considered—equity value, enterprise value or invested capital value.  While these three types of value are related, there are significant differences between them and understanding those differences is important in reaching a fair resolution.  In his article, the author walks through the differences in equity, enterprise, and invested capital value he shares with attorneys and views as additional tools to effectively navigate valuation-related disputes and negotiations.

In Case You Missed It:

This discussion summarizes the interrelatedness of the weighted average cost of capital and the weighted average return on assets within the context of a purchase price allocation for financial reporting purposes. Failure to understand this fundamental relationship can lead to inaccurate estimates of value for the acquired assets and, therefore, inaccurate reported asset values and amortization expense on the financial statements of the acquirer. The WACC can be viewed as a weighted average of the required rates of return for the individual assets of the acquired company. The selected intangible asset rates of return should be reviewed for reasonableness through a weighted average return on assets analysis. Understanding the nature and risk of the expected cash flow (of the enterprise and specific assets) is important to ensuring consistency throughout the analysis.

The first article in this series provided an introduction to valuation analysts (analyst) regarding the need to integrate and use the Asset-based Approach to value going-concern businesses and securities. This second installment addresses common analyst misconceptions regarding the use of the Asset-based Approach to value both asset holding companies and operating companies.

To Avoid Confirmation Bias in Your Decisions, Consider the Alternatives

As a leader, it’s a rare luxury to have all of the relevant data before making a decision. More often you make a call with incomplete information, which leaves you open to confirmation bias — meaning you pay attention to data that supports the decision you’ve made and dismiss data that does not. To avoid this trap, take some time before executing your decision and ask yourself what would’ve happened if you’d made the opposite choice. Gather the data you would need to defend this opposite view, and compare it with the data used to support your original decision. Reevaluate your decision in light of the bigger data set. Your perspective may still be incomplete, but it will be much more balanced.

Before Taking an Expat Assignment, Make Sure Your Family Is on Board

Getting an expat assignment can be exciting, but it can also be hard on your family. Before accepting a temporary reassignment to another country, think it through with your partner or family. Be sure to frame the decision as a real choice — Should we go or stay? And consider the degree of change: If you live in Amsterdam, relocating to Brussels is very different from moving to Guangzhou, China. Then go through the pros and cons of each alternative, laying out the full implications for your children or extended family, your career — and your partner’s — and your support networks. Try to anticipate and discuss how the change would affect family dynamics — e.g., shifting from a dual-career marriage to one where a spouse stays at home, or replacing a grandmother babysitter with a professional nanny. These discussions will not only shape your decision about the assignment but also help set expectations and prevent resentment later on.
