THE BUZZ ON HR

January 19, 2016

Once upon a time, I was in an all-day meeting. It started at 8am sharp and was scheduled to go until at least 6pm. Presentation after presentation. Lots of talking and lots of slides. Not a lot of breaks. Sometime after lunch, I started to lose focus. My mind started to wander. And so did […]

I didn’t write much on this site in 2015. I let the stuff of life zap my time and creativity so much that I missed the mark on many of my goals. That’s a bummer for me … But 2015 is over now. There’s nothing to be gained from continuing to beat myself up. So I […]

It is the season to be jolly as each and everyone has their own story to tell. It is our tale – our […]

I love the Christmas holiday season. Since I started this blog, each year, I feature guest writers in December sharing HR lessons from class holiday movies. This year, my guests are all new contributors from the blogging team at Performance I Create. I’ve been writing for PIC since 2012. I love it because each month I […]

Did you know that I’m a MVP??? I’m not talking about being a Most Valuable Person … although I am that, too. I’m talking about being a Multifarious Voice Presenter!! The MVP Speaking Group was started this summer by my Blog-FF, HR Jedi and Resume Ninja extraordinaire — Chris Fields!! Chris saw the need for greater […]

I attended a HR luncheon not too long ago. I arrived early and found no one there I knew. Instead of going into introvert mode, I decided to sit down at a table, join the conversation and try to make some new connections. Here’s what I walked in on … “It’s been over a year of […]
