Notorious B.I.G. once rhymed, "There’s rules to this stuff. I wrote me a manual."  Though it applied to a different type of game, Christopher Wallace was on to something. Now that the 2012 NFL Draft is over, many players will need a guide to  keep them out of the gossip blogs, tabloids, and bankruptcy courts. We’ve seen so many athletes come into the NFL broke and leave in the same way. It’s a cycle we must stop. So, before these athletes get caught up, perhaps they should read The Five Draft Commandments. (What!) ---Christian Law

For last night's Super Bowl XLVI, millions gathered to watch with excitement --- and for some, disappointment --- as the New York Giants took home the victory. Each team combined skill, strategy, and deliberate action to capture the NFL's top win, a career-defining moment for both sides to reflect on what was done well and what could be improved for next season.


All of these elements exist in today's competitive business world, with everyday professionals applying brain and brawn to achieve career wins. Female professionals can take major cues from the men on the field --- and in the C-suite. 


Jocelyn Giangrande, career coach and author of What’s In Your Sandwich? 10 Surefire Ingredients for Career Success (SASHE, L.L.C; $18.95), offers four lessons women can learn from the Super Bowl to step out of the cheerleader sidelines and into championship gains.
