In HR (and life) the story that wins becomes the truth!

In HR we hear a lot of stories.

Best Staffing Websites: How Do You Bring A Staffing Brand to Life?

Why do you need a website for your staffing firm? What should it look like? Should it be a sales tool? Should it be merely informational? Does it need a job board? Different staffing companies have different ideas about how their website should look and function – or wonder why they even need a website at all. Some staffing firms see a website as…

Life Lessons from Pickleball

Let’s end the summer on a light note, as I want to talk about my new obsession, Pickleball. For those who have never heard of it, here is a brief history: Pickleball was invented in 1965 on Bainbridge Island, a short ferry ride from Seattle, Washington. Three dads – Joel Pritchard, Bill Bell, and Barney McCallum — whose kids were bored with their usual…

Life is better when you have cheerleaders!

Do you have a cheerleader? I think if you have one your life is richer. It’s not about who has the most cheerleaders, but I do think it is…

Who has been your biggest influence in your life?

Great personal story to share today of a very cool interaction that happened this week. So, if you’re reading this blog post you’ve by now guessed that I write a bit.

Can the Gig Life Be the Safe Haven for the Overqualified?

I hate the word “overqualified.” It has this nasty connotation because if someone has a depth of work experience, they can’t fit into a role. They have too many years of experience, too much seniority or too high-level of a title to do the job, at least that’s the vibe I get when someone tells me a candidate is overqualified. Shouldn’t the reverse be…

The Career (and Life) Benefits of Going Global

It’s been a career filled with humbling and tremendous learning, derived from surviving the potent mix of immigration/border security lines, horrific plane meals, and profound cases of jet lag. In fact, I would go so far as to say that traveling internationally has played a larger part in my…
