True or False: Corporate Recruiters Fear Agency Recruiters?

True or False?  It’s a common belief, in most Talent and HR circles, that most corporate recruiters fear agency recruiters.  Go ahead and argue if you would like, but it seems a little silly. The reality is, true recruiting professionals don’t fear amateurs. It’s like a really great professional Photographer. They charge money because they offer something someone is willing to pay for. Professional photographers…

Most of your dreams won’t come true…

…but some will. That’s what it’s all about. We don’t live and work and struggle to reach every single dream. That’s impossible. We do all of this for the chance we might actually get the chance to see some of our dreams come true. Maybe even just one. I guess it depends on what kind of a dreamer you are. I dream of great…

1 True Fan is How it all Starts!

You’ve probably heard of the idea of 1,000 True Fans. Seth Godin gets a lot of credit for the idea, but he’s quick to point out he got it from Kevin Kelly over a decade ago. True Fans are those people who really believe in you and your work. They make it a point to consume your content. If you’re close to them they’ll…

Can HR Truly bring Their True Selves to Work?

One of my favorite songs on The Who’s magnificent rock opus Quadrophenia is The Real Me. It asks the question “Can you see the real me?” over and over as the central character, Jimmy, asks his doctor and others for clarity about his issues. Well, HR has some new issues to contend with too. Can HR bring their true selves to work each day? Over…

A Culture of True Transparency Has Helped This Company Soar

I talk to and meet many companies on a daily basis. Each and every company is a special snowflake … or so they think. Your product or service might be unique, but the truth is that the internal structure of your company probably is not. So why do people lament they can not attract talented people to come work for their company. Why? Actually,…

Too Good To Be True? Here’s An HR Conference Storyline That’s Worth Checking Out

May is here and the spring conference season is getting into full swing. It’s also getting a little more crowded — and maybe a little more interesting too. No, I don’t mean WorkHuman interesting. I’m not sure any other HR or talent management event is ready to challenge them for what my friend and Fistful of Talent Grand Poobah Kris Dunn describes as “the most progressive…

Are you “True” to your game?

There is a phrase that is often used in a number of contexts, the phrase is: “Stay true to the game”  I’ve always almost seen it used when talking about sports, and almost always in basketball. But I’ve seen it used across pop culture for decades. “The game” is that thing you do. Maybe it’s sales. Maybe it’s accounting. Maybe it’s basketball. My ‘game’…

True Sign of a Great Leader > How Well They Protect PTO

To me there is one way to know if a leader is worth their salt.  It is something I don’t recall seeing in leadership books, white papers, or in training sessions.  To me the simplest way to see if a leader is doing their job is to ask team members one question: “Did you use all your PTO last year?” When a team member…

True Diversity Can’t Be Achieved If You’re Still a School Pedigree Snob…

Hang out around diversity groups/conferences/think-tanks long enough, and you’re sure to have your view of diversity widened.  The line of thinking goes that diversity transcends Title 7 classification, and while many diversity initiatives focus on opportunity for protected class candidates, differences that exist outside of that definition are important as well. If the true business goal of diversity is to have a workforce that…

This Job Sounds To Good To Be True!

When I was 18 years old I packed up my 1979 Ford Mustang and drove 20 straight hours from Grand Rapids, MI to Laramie, WY to go to college at the University of Wyoming. My air conditioning didn’t work, the radio didn’t work well and I had a Rand McNally Atlas (look it up kids) to guide my way. It took me roughly 4…
