I know a lot of people who have had to go through the process of rehabbing their career. You make a bad move for money, or you get fired for some reason that will look bad but doesn’t necessarily mean you’re bad, or you out of work for longer than you wanted to be and […]

Your Dreams Are Adjustable

I once wanted to be a teacher.  In fact, until I was about 23 years old, I thought that was going to be my future.  Then I taught and found it wasn’t for me.  Not the teaching part, the public education administration political part.  It only took one example to show me public education was fundamentally […]

The One Conference HR Pros Need to Go to in 2017 #WorkHuman

So, I’ve been on the record that my favorite conference to attend is the HR Technology Conference. It’s my favorite because I geek out on HR and TA Tech and I’ll send three days on the expo floor demoing every product under the sun. That’s me. That’s not most HR pros. I’ve actually had HR […]

Falling 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 […]

Too often leaders put up with a great talent who’s shitty to other employees. The belief is that because the employee is so talented we should be willing to put up with how they treat others. It happens all the time in organizations! All. The. Time. Ichiro Suzuki is a very successful Major League Baseball player […]

I’m a Jealous Asshole.

Don’t blow out someone else’s candle to make yours brighter. – Chelsea Handler I had someone close to me tell me recently they were jealous of me.  It was hard for them to do, I know. It always hard to put yourself out there and be vulnerable. I’m jealous as well. I’m jealous all the […]
