A frequently overlooked, but often key factor to a successful acquisition lies in a balance sheet item that doesn’t even exist prior to the acquisition – goodwill. The difference between the purchase price and the book value of a company, goodwill is actually created and recognized through the accounting process following an acquisition, and reflects the premium paid for what I consider to be the “personality” of the company.

According to a recent survey from the Institute of Health and Human Potential’s Women under Pressure initiative, only 32% of women feel their organization has the same amount of confidence in them as they do in their male counterparts.   This confirms the “confidence gap” exists – and women often feel less capable, prepared and willing to take risks than their male colleagues.

What if you thought about hiring the same way you think about car insurance? Think about how the car insurance process works: The agent doesn’t need to meet you in person to know that if you have a sports car in the garage, four accidents on your driving record, and a 16-year-old living under your roof, you are probably going to cost them money at some point. They have become adept at using historical data to predict the likelihood of certain outcomes, such as you getting into an accident and filing a claim. The riskier you are, the more expensive your policy will be. It’s a formula that’s been proven over time.

The super cool feature of a kaleidoscope is not the charming images that take our breath away.  Or, the fact that, unlike a magnifying glass or set of binoculars, you get to actively engage with the kaleidoscope to create swoons and grins. It is the fact that the kaleidoscope has character.  The gems inside never change but are reflected through a series of mirrors.  You don’t open up a kaleidoscope to replace the gems.
