You know what?  Being an HR Pro isn’t tough, being a Dad/parent is tough!  But, sometimes they seem to be very similar jobs.

Dream Gigantic

I love this concept. It feels hopeful and aspirational. I don’t do this enough.

I will do everything I can […]

The Story That Wins Becomes The Truth

In HR we hear a lot of stories. We love to tell ourselves we are hearing the truth from one side and a lie from another side, but the reality is both sides are stories with a little truth and a little lie built in. We then ‘measure’ who we feel is telling more truth […]

HR and Recruiting are not Rocket Science!

I hear one thing over and over from people who read my stuff or see my presentations: “It’s not rocket science.” It happened just last week. Some HR guy sent me a message and said, “I don’t get it?” Meaning, he didn’t get what I was trying to say like there was some deeper meaning […]
