Becoming a Top CEO

CEO is one of the most coveted, and least understood positions within a company. Everyone believes that CEO's are all-powerful, and able to do whatever they want. Of course, nothing could be further from the truth. People who hold the title of CEO must meet the needs of employees, customers, investors, communities, and the law. Some aspects of a CEO's job can be delegated to others, but there are a few elements of the job must be done by the CEO.

One primary duty a CEO is in charge of is building the culture. People are the ones that get the work done and are profoundly affected by culture. A lousy place to work can drive away good performers, who many times have their pick of places to work. And a great place to work can attract and retain the best employees. Culture is built in dozens of ways, and the CEO sets the tone. Clothes send signals about how formal the workplace is. How she treats, mistakes sends signals about risk-taking. Who she rewards, what she tolerates, and who she fires can shape the culture.

Team-building is another key duty the CEO must handle well. The CEO hires, fires, and leads the senior management team. They can lead the rest of the company. A CEO's responsibilities can encompass everything, especially in a start-up. The CEO is responsible for the success or failure of the company. Even areas such as operations, PR, financing, marketing, strategy, creation of company culture, sales, human resources, hiring, firing and compliance with safety regulations fall on the shoulders of a CEO.

He knows the importance of team work and has years of experience working as a CEO and President for a variety of organizations.

The Key to Great Management

Being a good manager is not something that just happens. Getting a degree in management or administration is a good step, but it's not all that's needed to be a great manager. Great managers must have an effective mix of management and leadership skills. That's why experience is an invaluable ally. If you are considering going into management, the following are some of the core skills you must possess.

Being able to take a large task and break it down into smaller, more manageable, but interdependent pieces is a key skill that every manager must have. Dividing up the work makes it flow more efficiently. To do this successfully, you must first know the strengths of each employee and department. You must be able to analyze the task and find the best way to break it down. Learning how to do this takes time and practice.

Being an efficient manager is not just about barking out orders. Many times, the worth of a manager can be found in their ability to listen and empathize. This skill allows you to understand really what is going in your company. Listening does not just mean paying attention to what your employees say, but finding solutions to problems.

If you meet the above criteria, you must then take a Fire Safety Director course by an FDNY accredited school and pass their exam. The course consists of 20 hours of instructional training and 2 hours of hands-on demonstrations

Growing Fig Trees Indoors

Fig tree can be grown either outside or inside depending on the weather. Common names for this plant include Benjamin fig, weeping fig and ficus tree. It look like a classic tree and has oblong leaves that grow 2 to 5 inches long. If left unchecked it can reach up to 18 feet tall, but its size can be controlled by pruning and pot size, similar to that of a bonsai.

The first step when potting is to re-pot the fig tree into a container that is 2 inches larger than the plant's current pot size. Choose a planter with drain holes in the bottom. Then add 2 inches of mushroom soil to the bottom of the pot. Remove the fig tree from its current pot by pressing on the pot from outside to loosen the roots and dirt. Use your fingers to remove clumps of dirt from the roots and to pull the larger roots free, being careful not to tear any of them. Place it into the new pot and finish filling the pot with mushroom soil.

Next you will want to place the freshly potted plant on a tray and pour water into the pot until it runs out of the drainage holes. Allow it to soak up as much moisture as possible, and then remove the excess water after 10 minutes. The fig should be watered approximately two times a week. Allow the fig tree to dry at least one or two days between watering. Place the fig tree on the south side of your home/property, in full sun, all day.

Fertilize the fig tree during the growing season. Discontinue in the fall when the ficus shows vigorous, new growth. Make sure to prune your plant regularly to control the size and shape and use a damp, cotton cloth to remove dust from the leaves of your fig tree.

Sal Taddeo Jr. is a business professional who has held executive positions with a variety of organizations. He has served as the President and CEO of Sallee Figs, a company that grows and sells rare exotic fig trees.

Sal Taddeo Jr. - The Importance of Honesty and Integrity in Becoming a New Jersey Real Estate Agent

Sal Taddeo Jr. earned his real estate license in New Jersey some years ago after completing the required pre-licensure course and passing the real estate exam. The New Jersey Real Estate Commission requires more than only passing the course and the test to get a license, it requires that all would-be real estate agents in the state have excellent character, honesty, and integrity. The Commission denied real estate applications based on criminal records all the time, and it has been known to revoke licensure to agents who have in some way been dishonest to their customers or the government.

Sal Taddeo Jr. took the character portion of the New Jersey real estate licensing process very seriously. Already the owner of two businesses in the Rumson, New Jersey area, Mr. Taddeo has long been known for his straightforwardness, even when it doesn’t help his business interests or his negotiations.

Property managers, as Sal Taddeo Jr. of Rumson, New Jersey knows, have one of the most complicated customer service jobs in the world. They have to respond to unpredictable crises and needs of their tenants as quickly as possible to keep them happy. Property management is all about responsibility. Managers are responsible for their tenants’ well-being and must be ready to respond to their needs in order to keep collecting rent from them and avoid poisonous relationships that could result in serious legal action or a massive loss of customers. For Mr. Taddeo, being a responsible property manager is related to having the skills to help customers in many different capacities.

Sal Taddeo Jr. got into real estate in New Jersey some time ago while still owning and operating several of his private businesses in the Rumson area. In order to be a responsible property manager, he had to learn how to perform basic maintenance work and be on-call at all times in case of emergencies with his tenants. Sal Taddeo Jr. didn’t have a huge budget to work with, so fixing certain maintenance issues was a part of his job, or at least he considered it such. He wanted to have the ability to assuage customer concerns quickly and efficiently, like all customer service representatives have to do. Mr. Taddeo quickly realized that responsible property managers have to treat their job like a very important customer service position.

Sal Taddeo Jr. has created opportunities for his tenants to live worry-free in his properties throughout the Rumson, New Jersey area.

Sal Taddeo Jr. - Questions Home Sellers Should Ask Real Estate Agents

As a licensed real estate agent in New Jersey, Sal Taddeo Jr. understands that home sellers need to get all of the information that they can find before they choose an agent to work with. This often involves asking a number of questions that allows clients to better understand the role the agent will play in helping them sell their properties. Unfortunately, many first-time sellers may end up choosing a poor agent due to not being familiar with the types of things they should be asking about, so make sure you ask all of the following to any real estate agent you are considering hiring.

What Is Your Experience?

This should be the first and likely most obvious question to ask your agent. While you will want to find out the basic facts about how long they have been working in the industry, the key here is to ask about properties that agents have worked with that are similar to your own. Ask them about the challenges that you may face in selling your type of property and the demand for such properties in your local area. A good real estate agent will be able to provide strong answers and examples of previous work to back up any claims that they make.

What Marketing Techniques Will You Use?

One of the main reasons to hire real estate agents is to take advantage of their experience in the industry, particularly when it comes to marketing properties that are for sale. You should ask about the various techniques the agent will use in order to get more eyes on your property. Be very wary of any agents who avoid using the Internet, as the majority of buyers now choose to examine properties online before they even make a decision to arrange a viewing.

How Will We Communicate?

Make sure to establish the various lines of communication that will be in place during the selling process. The best real estate agents make it a point to provide regular updates to their clients, instead of waiting for clients to call before talking about their transactions. Aim to put guidelines in place that establish how often the agent will contact you and the methods used to get in touch.

What Do You Offer That Others Don’t?

Sal Taddeo Jr. has established a reputation as a quality real estate agent because he goes above and beyond to help clients. You should talk to any prospective agents about what they will offer that others won’t, which gives them the chance to sell themselves a little more to you. Ideally, you will want to work with people who have experience with your type of property and who put in the hours required to give the sale the attention it deserves.

Sal Taddeo Jr. - The Benefits of Using CAD Software

In addition to having worked as the Director of Facility Operations and Construction at Bradlees Department Stores for over ten years, before deciding to explore other opportunities, Sal Taddeo Jr. also has a certificate in the use of Computer Automated Design (CAD) that has proven very useful for working in the construction and design industries. CAD offers users a wide range of advantages over creating designs manually, with the below being some of the most important.

It Increases Productivity

Static, manual designs only allow those who make them to see how the design works in a single form. This means that they must often create a number of different designs, including 3D models and paper blueprints, in order to get a full picture of how their designs will work in real life. This is a very time-consuming process and one that can be largely automated using CAD. Such software helps designers to more efficiently document and manipulate their designs, ensuring that they can offer much higher standards of service to their clients.

It Improves Quality

Another of the major drawbacks with manual design is that it can be subject to human errors. A miscalculation or lapse of memory can lead to important parts of the design getting altered during the process, which often leads to delays. CAD software ensures that all relevant figures are calculated accurately and, as importantly, stored so that they can be accessed at any time. This means that the designers no longer need to rely on their memories in order to access information that is vital to their work.

Stronger Communication

Due to the fact that CAD offers designers the opportunity to achieve standardization across their various designs, it allows for better communication with clients who can be informed about various techniques the designers use. This makes them abler to identify those same techniques in later designs, making it much easier to communicate the designer’s intentions with the project. Furthermore, the designs created using CAD can be saved and placed in shared databases or even emailed across to relevant stakeholders quickly and easily.

Easier Editing

Sal Taddeo Jr. understands that it is often very difficult to edit manual documents, especially if an error is caught fairly deep into the design process. Having to go back and change older documents, often re-drawing designs from scratch to account for the changes, takes a lot of time and reduces the designer’s productivity. By contrast, CAD allows for such changes to be made very quickly, so that they are instantly reflected in the design documents. The time saved can then be used to move the project forward, ensuring that deadlines are met and that key stakeholders are kept happy at all times.

Sal Taddeo Jr. - The Advantages of Renting A Property

Sal Taddeo Jr. knows that one of the biggest decisions that those who are looking to move home face is whether to buy or rent their next properties. Each offers something a little different to the other, so consider these advantages of renting if you are struggling to make up your mind or need any extra help in making a decision.

Low Initial Investment

Buying a property usually means having to raise enough money to put down a sizeable deposit before any mortgage lenders will take you seriously. Furthermore, you will often need to deal with a host of fees from real estate agents and legal professionals as well. Conversely, with renting you will only have to deal with smaller estate agent’s fees, a security deposit and possibly a month’s rent in advance.


Purchasing a home is a long-term investment that will usually see you living in the property for many years to come. Those who rent often have the flexibility to stay in properties for short periods of time before moving on. This is particularly useful for those who only require short-term accommodation, as it means they can choose more advantageous terms in regards to their commitments to the property.

Maintenance Issues

Sal Taddeo Jr. points out that practically every property will experience maintenance issues at some point. If you own the property, the responsibility for dealing with such issues rests squarely on your shoulders, as does the cost burden. Renters, on the other hand, usually only need to report said issues to their landlords or property managers to get them remedied.

Sal Taddeo Jr. - Tips For Hiring A Construction Contractor

As the former President and CEO of T&E Construction Management, Sal Taddeo Jr. understands the many challenges that people face when they are trying to find constructors to do work for them, regardless of whether it is for commercial or domestic projects. These handy pointers should help anybody select construction contractors who can get the job done.

Ask For References

Word of mouth is vital in the construction industry, so the best contractors will be more than happy to refer you to previous clients. Take the time to talk to as many people as possible, both about the quality of work they received and the conduct of the contractors when they were on site. It may also be worth checking online forums and social media pages to get an even more balanced view.

Trust Your Gut

Trust plays a large role in the relationship between clients and their contractors, so if your gut is telling you that a company is not right for the project, you should listen to it. Even if the contractor is actually able to offer a stellar service, having lingering doubt in your mind can lead to project delays and other issues.

Always Get A Contract

Sal Taddeo Jr. is quick to point out that construction work should never start without a contract being in place. Contracts protect both the contractors and their clients by outlining what is expected of them as part of the agreements they forge. If you allow work to start without having a contract in place, you may leave yourself in a vulnerable position if something goes wrong.

We all know people who get great joy from giving to others and it seems those who are more generous and altruistic may be on to something. Sal Taddeo Jr., a business owner and licensed real estate agent from New Jersey, has always believed in giving to the less fortunate. As a dedicated family man, the Sallee Figs and Salangi Enterprises President understands the value of giving back to the community and the need for those who are able, to give of their time and resources.

Although the obvious beneficiary in charitable situations would be those receiving help, studies have shown that charity is a fulfilling action for the benefactor as well. When giving to charity, it has been found that the mid region of the brain, that is responsible for cravings and pleasure, “lit up”. According to research conducted by Dunn, Akin, Aknin, and Norton, this prosocial spending ignites a pleasure reward in the brain and indeed does make us happier.

Many have found that giving to specific projects that matter to them as individuals makes a difference in the satisfaction they receive from gifting to others. This theory would support the idea of looking into worthy causes that may seem important to you personally. Giving to specific projects and tangible or truly desirable goals makes the gift seem worth the sacrifice and less futile. If you know someone who was affected by a disease, have seen a specific need in your community, or simply know of a person who could use some help, see the benefits of your contribution and knowing where the money is going can make it all the more worthwhile.

Many reports also indicate that giving to charities on a regular basis increases the satisfaction of giving. This idea is most likely to be highly beneficial to everyone involved. Although giving one time gifts in large amounts may seem more charitable than small gifts, giving on a regular basis allows charities to count on a steady flow of support from benefactors. This increases their ability to plan for projects and budget. This way of giving also gives those donating a constant feeling of accomplishment and satisfaction for helping for the long term and being involved with projects to completion.

As Sal Taddeo Jr proposes, giving to others with no strings attached is also a pivotal aspect of prosocial spending. Giving directly to a charity with no incentives allows a person to give without expectation. He chooses to live by the idea that, “The more that you give love unconditionally, without others asking, the better you feel inside your heart and soul.” It now seems that science supports this theory, although most of us are familiar with the “warm fuzzy feelings” we get when we share with others.

Sal Taddeo Jr. - Horticulture – The Art and Science of Gardening

As both an art and science, gardening not only allows a person to express his or herself through nature but to also better understand the environment and essential aspects of human life. Sal Taddeo Jr., owner of Sallee Figs, is highly knowledgeable in horticulture and enjoys working with the land. As a business owner who sells several thousand fig trees in hundreds of varieties from around the world, having an understanding of nature and the needs of his plants is important in the success of his company. One of the things Taddeo demonstrates in his work is the desire to help others. His company’s website,, or not only lists the many various varieties of fig trees he has to offer, but shows his passion for cultivating and growing plants through his desire to help others achieve success in growing as well. With detailed tips and instructions on growing fig trees, he is helping many to begin a life in horticulture and becoming more independent and self-reliant in regard to sourcing food.

Horticulture can be a tricky task to undertake. Understanding the science behind growing each plant can greatly help those who are looking to be successful whether they are in it for the art and beauty or hoping to grow plants that yield fruit or vegetables. Many plants are now grown in conditions that contrast greatly to their natural habitat. This factor only increases the need for an understanding of gardening on a deeper level. Cultivation techniques are often derived from sciences such as botany, chemistry, and the physiology of the plant. Seasoned gardeners are able to take these basic fundamentals and apply them to meet their specific needs while cultivating plants in the gardener’s environment. This practice, obviously, requires modifications and adaptation to optimize plant growth in the climate and environment in which the gardener sees fit.

For knowledgeable gardeners such as Sal Taddeo Jr., horticulture becomes a way of life. As he gained expertise in the field, he was able to create a customized engineered irrigated potting system to optimize the growth and health of his fig trees. He has been able to share this technology with others through his business and sells the potting system to help alleviate stress of growing plants and makes for higher levels of success. Having such an understanding of his product allows him to not only grow thousands of fig trees each year, but to also maintain his own crop of approximately 10,000 fig trees of numerous varieties. Those who are passionate about horticulture possess many of these same qualities as Taddeo. Teaching others these skills and continually growing in knowledge and experience in gardening gives individuals the opportunity to rely more on themselves for sustenance.

Sal Taddeo Jr. - Renovating your Property – Making the Most of Your Property

Sal Taddeo Jr. is a licensed real estate agent in New Jersey with over two decades of experience in the property industry. Throughout his time in real estate, he has seen numerous property types, trends, and common mistakes. Although many people appreciate the simplicity of a turn-key ready property, there is a growing group of people seeking out run down homes with the intention of renovating them. While this can be a great idea, without the proper knowledge, renovating a property can actually lead to financial loss rather than finding a steal and making it your own.

When taking on renovations, a property owner has much to consider throughout the process. Hiring the right contractors for the job, making sure any “do it yourself projects” are not biting off more than you can chew, and smart budgeting are just some of the many aspects of fixing up a property to get the most for your investment.

Sal Taddeo Jr. has taken courses in facility operations and project management, cost estimating and budgeting, construction management, construction and site safety, structural design, zoning and building law and more. For someone who has been a part of numerous projects, budgeting, knowing the importance of proper safety, the use of correct materials, and knowing building and zoning laws are some of the more important aspects to consider before undertaking a project. While many things can go wrong in the process, and keeping that in mind is important for success, taking on a “fixer-upper” can be a worthwhile experience that saves money and creates an end result full of unique qualities and personalization.

Sal Taddeo Jr. - Real Estate Law – Knowing your Zoning Basics

When dealing with real estate and property, zoning municipal and government laws often specify the manner in which property can be used in particular areas. Sal Taddeo Jr. is a licensed real estate agent from New Jersey who has over twenty years of experience in the industry. Having attended the Institute of Design and Construction in Brooklyn, New York, coupled with his experience on the job, he is very familiar with issues concerning construction and site safety, mechanical and structural design, facility operations and project management, and zoning and business law.

Zoning laws differ depending about the location, but many are put in place to regulate and establish limits on land use. These regulations can prevent issues with businesses opening in residential communities for example. This basic separation of residential, commercial, and industrial zones allows for greater uniformity and can also prevent issues with current residents being inundated with unwanted businesses, or vice versa, in the future.

Real estate professionals like Sal Taddeo Jr. know the importance of adhering to zoning regulations and understanding what the restrictions might entail. Some restrictions can be even more specific, such as restrictions on the use of homes as single or multi-family dwellings, requirements for historic feature preservation, and even the distance of buildings from streets. A failure to properly investigate possible zoning regulations in an area can result in building delays and possibly having to abandon a project altogether. Doing the proper research before diving into a project can save headaches, time, and finances for anyone venturing into real estate development.
