Taking the Gloves Off: Leaders and HR

Mon, 09/29/2014 - 16:00

Human resources can be complex, confusing and exasperating. Communications between leaders and their human resources department don't have to be.

Unfortunately, they are.

Team Building. Can You Stand It?

Mon, 09/22/2014 - 16:00

You've probably been involved in a team building exercise at some point in your work life.

Perhaps it was a human knot, an mandatory weekend outing or a few hours in the workplace "getting to know" your colleagues. I am always interested in what leaders subject employees to under the guise of…

{Personality Tests} Don't Give Me That "I"!

Mon, 09/15/2014 - 16:00

People are complex, variable and unpredictable. I like to think that we are more sophisticated than any 9-box grid, True Colors or personality test could ever hope to encompass. I feel violated when a marketer gets lucky and I suddenly "need" something I didn't know even…

Try Crowdsourcing: No Surprises on Election Day

Fri, 09/12/2014 - 15:00

It’s no surprise that local governments are utilizing crowdsourcing to solve some of their biggest problems. Crowdsourcing, after all, uses some of the same basic tenets as democracy: where the decisions that serve a body are governed by the majority. Crowdsourcing is being used as a means to allocate budgets, cut…

Guess who is at the very center of your People Garden? YOU! As with my first blog, this is about your People Garden work style. It is that time of the year where it is time for all of us to start our self-assessments for our Performance Appraisals. This whole concept has been ingrained in me since my…

Polishing your Political Savvy

Thu, 09/11/2014 - 16:51

One of the most important elements of career progression is successfully navigating the organization. The ease in which one does this – political savvy – can often make or break a career.

 

Acquiring political savvy is a process of observations and modeling behaviors that are accepted and expected. It is also about making strategic connections and building trust.

There are however, some specific targets to focus on when developing political savvy.

Social Media Screening: Guidance for Individuals and Organizations

Thu, 09/11/2014 - 11:30

Social media screening (aka social screening) has become an almost commonplace recruiting and hiring practice. Employers are “googling” job candidates and searching social networking sites as part of their pre-employment background checks, and admissions counselors and coaches are using similar practices to make acceptance decisions about prospective students and…

It's 9/11 and I'm Angry

Thu, 09/11/2014 - 10:58

I wanted to write about other things today. 

  • Why pop culture is essential to digital engagement. (Because you have to speak to things that are relatable to the masses, not interesting specifically to you in your context.)
  • Why having a positive attitude is so important at work. (Because it is the nature of people at work to bond over negativity, and negativity is toxic and feeds on itself.)
  • Some of the most important…

NextGen Summit 2014: (Over but not forgotten)~ Recap of Paul Allen's "Build Your Strengths" Session

Wed, 09/10/2014 - 19:09
How much do you bench? Or rather how strong are you? My personal trainer yells these questions at us every Saturday regarding our physical strength, as we struggle to hold onto 30 pound weights while climbing up and down 50 flights of stairs. But when you really think about it, how would you respond to your boss if they asked you what your strengths are in terms of your attributes and how could they can contribute to the work. As a volunteer for the conference, I was happy to learn that…

I Choose to Remember the Good

Wed, 09/10/2014 - 15:24

What do you remember about September 11th? In the weeks following, I found myself driving around San Diego, my home. I took hundreds of pictures of the flags displayed on homes, schools, businesses, and churches. I remember feeling patriotism in a way I had not since I was a kid. The tragedy of that day changed…
