Your brain is your most powerful competitive weapon – if you know how to use it properly. The brain can process large amounts of information. It has a real talent for forming patterns and connections, and it loves to answer questions and solve problems. It also has a tendency to see what it expects to see, overlook data that contradicts its prevailing view of the world, and has greater confidence in its decision-making abilities than it should. In order to become more effective, we need a much deeper understanding of how our brain works and how it often gets in the way of winning. In this webcast we’ll leverage the latest in neuroscience and provide you with tools, tips, and techniques to become a better leader and manager. You’ll practice playing with your brain and walk away with practices you can immediately put to use to be even more successful!

The Davis-Bacon Act requires that contractors on federally funded construction projects pay a minimum "prevailing wage" similar to wages and benefits paid by union contractors. Many states have similar laws. The prevailing wage consists of wages and fringe benefits. Employers can save as much as 30 percent on payroll taxes (FICA, Medicare, FUTA), worker's compensation premiums, and general liability insurance premiums for each dollar paid as a contribution to a retirement plan rather than paid directly as taxable wages.
