Economists surveyed by The Wall Street Journal are increasingly optimistic about the pace of the recovery, predicting the U.S. will grow at better than a 3.2% annual rate in each quarter this year. "The U.S. economy appears to have successfully navigated the adjustment from a recovery driven primarily from economic stimulus and inventory rebuilding to one driven by private domestic demand and rising exports," said economists at Wells Fargo & Co. "Three percent growth looks pretty good, particularly with housing stuck in low gear."

After three years of economic pain, a growing number of economists think 2011 will finally bring what everyone's been hoping for: More jobs and a self-sustaining recovery. "We're looking at some leading indicators on employment, and they're all flashing green lights," said Bernard Baumohl of the Economic Outlook Group, a Princeton, N.J. research firm.

Any company can grow in 2011. Will you? If you choose to keep doing what you've always done - well you shouldn't plan on improved performance. On the other hand, embracing market shifts and creating an adaptive organization that identifies and launches innovation could well make you into a big winner. Next holiday season when you look at performance results for 2011 they will have more to do with management's decisions about how to manage than any other factor. Any company can grow, if it does the right things.

Unpredictable: the one word I think of when looking back on 2010. This year has been an "unpredictable" year for our clients, for our candidates, and of course, for Treeline. As a sales organization, we base our business model on consistent sustainable growth. Fortunately, 2010 proved to be a better year than 2009. However, uncertainty reigned throughout the year. Americas' volatile economic situation directly influenced the decisions of many of our clients and candidates. Therefore, many decisions were made due to an emotional response to economic influences. Often, fear caused by uncertainty overshadowed logic and reason and the decision making process to buy, hire, or accept an offer was frequently unclear.
