“Hard to get Talent” right now, in 2021, seems to be any kind of talent!

Note > Other translations may include: ballsy, stupid, crazy, naive, smart, courageous, idiotic, or foolish enough…?  October 23rd was a typical day at Casa Burke. My cat jumped on my head to wake me up. I drank my 1.7 cups of Community Coffee (Mardi Gras Blend with sugar-free peppermint mocha creamer).

The Pandemic has been hard on HR pros!

If we sat down and started to list out who has been most impacted by the pandemic on the jobs front, we would come up with a pretty interesting list! The vast number of unemployed would show us that almost everyone has been impacted, and, quite frankly, it kind of feels that way. If we dig into the data side of what has really…

Creating friendships at work during a pandemic is really hard!

We’ve been told for years now, based on the Gallup research, that having a best friend at work is one of those anchors that will lengthen a person’s tenure with an organization.

It’s Really Hard to Judge People!

I was out walking with my wife recently (that’s what middle-aged suburban people do, we walk, it makes us feel like we are less lazy and it gets us away from the kids so we can talk grown-up) and she made this statement in a perfectly innocent way: “It’s really hard to judge people.” She said this to ‘me’!  I start laughing.  She realized…

When is the time to work hard?

“Never! Work smarter not harder!” Shut it. I wasn’t talking to you idiot. I tend to try and surround myself with people who are “hard” workers.

Advice We Need, but It’s Super Hard to Take! #wdayrising @Lin_Manuel

I’m out at Workday Rising this week in Orlando and yesterday I got the pleasure of listening to Lin-Manuel Miranda speak for the morning keynote. For those who follow me socially, I’ve seen Hamilton the musical four times (almost a 5th, but I got swindled!). So, I’m a bit of a super fan! Hamilton tickets aren’t cheap, it’s an investment to be a fan!…

It’s 2019 and it’s already time for everyone to start implementing New Year’s goals. But before you jump in and make good on your 2019 resolutions, let’s acknowledge that you worked really hard in 2018. Like really hard.

5 Hard Lessons I’ve Learned About Being a Better Manager and Boss

I’m a sucker for anything that tries to answer a question that I almost never hear anyone ask, much less answer: How can you be a good boss? Notice that I say anything that “tries” to answer because I usually find that most advice on how to better manage people usually goes one of two ways — it’s either very simplistic or incredibly stupid….
