When Your Job Is Thankless, Here’s What To Be Thankful For

In all professions, not only talent management, at times we feel our jobs are thankless. Some, unfortunately, feel they are thankless all of the time. I’ve heard both HR Pros, Recruiters and other think they are on a merry-go-round that never stops. When it finally does, the riders have a laundry list of woes, grievances, or discontent (why didn’t I get to sit on…

There’s Lots I Don’t Miss About the Office, But Here’s The One Thing We Can’t Live Without

Confession time: It’s hard not to LOVE Canadians. I’ve worked with a lot of our Northern cousins, and I’ve found Canadians to be generous, helpful, and kind. They don’t wear their partisanship on their sleeve, as so many of do here in Lower 48 plus 2, and they’re pretty easy going unless required to be something else. Yes, Canadians are very, very nice. They…

Want A 4-Day Workweek? Here’s ONE Thing You Must Do First

I have always loved the idea of a shortened workweek. Not the – let’s cram 40 hours into 4 days – but the true 32 (8-hour days, Monday-Thursday). I so badly want this to be a new US norm.  Why not? The not-so-modern 40-hour workweek was created in 1908 in factories. Since then, technology has ostensibly made administrative tasks less timely, modern planning tools…

Here’s how to fall in love with your job!

Do you know what it felt like the last time you fell in love? I mean real love? The kind of love where you talk 42 times per day, in between text and Facebook messages, and feel physical pain from being apart? Ok, maybe for some it’s been a while and you didn’t have the texts or Facebook!  But, you remember those times when…

Talent Acquisition is NOT Marketing. Here’s why!

We love, I love, to say Recruiting is Marketing! I love Recruitment Marketing and the technology behind it, I think it’s brilliant! Recruiting is also not sales! Why is Recruiting neither Marketing nor Sales? What’s the core function of marketing and sales? To welcome as many people as possible into your funnel so that all of those people will buy your product or service,…

Building a Talent Pipeline Still Makes Sense. Here’s Why

You’re not hiring, and you don’t know when you will be hiring. As business ramps up, you’ll address hiring needs as they arise. Sounds like a logical strategy, right? After all, with 38.6 million people newly unemployed, it won’t be hard to find candidates. Unfortunately, this is flawed logic. Available workers Although a record number of people have become unemployed in a nine-week period,…

Bersin: Here’s the back-to-work playbook for companies to succeed

Much has been written in the past weeks and months about the business impact of the COVID-19 crisis. I, along with many others, have written extensively about the almost-overnight transition to remote work, as well as many other changes companies implemented to adapt. Now, I will be focusing on considerations for returning to work. The post Bersin: Here’s the back-to-work playbook for companies to succeed appeared first…

Feedback Sucks. Here’s Why.

Why do you think most people struggle so much with feedback at work?  My first guess? Social media. We’ve evolved from a world where you could go days without speaking to anyone into a land where likes are the equivalent of Valentines in the 2nd grade.  Every. Single. Day. Endorphins galore. But the likes aren’t the problem. It’s how social media has set us…

Management Fads Come and Go, But Here’s an Oldie You Should Get on Board With

Management fads come and go, but one thing never changes — the fact that that most management fads don’t seem to last. That’s why I was surprised when I saw this recent Wall Street Journal article touting “agile management” as the hot, new management trend. My doubt was fueled by the third paragraph of the Journal story that openly admitted that there really isn’t…

I tried an Impossible Burger and Here’s my opinion…

So, I’ve been hearing for a while all the great publicity of the Impossible Burger (or other plant-based meat products). I even got pictures sent to me by my friend Laurie Ruettimann who was cooking Beyond Burgers and Sausages over the holiday weekend. It seems like meatless burgers that taste like real meat burgers are a thing, especially for people who don’t eat meat…

Here’s to the Crazy Ones: And Why You Don’t Deserve Them

I’ve been doing a lot of performance work for some client companies lately. As you might expect, I’m trying to push the companies to get out of the mindset that the performance review transaction is the reason for the process. Repeat after me:  The reason you do any type of coaching or performance management is to migrate employees. If you’re going to do it,…
