When You Want It More Than They Want It

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 don’t count myself as a dreamer, but I encourage my children to do this.  I want them to be the MLB Shortstop, the famous Fashion Designer, and world renowned Environmentalist.  They have Gigantic dreams.

Did Your Employees Ride the Bus to School?

It’s that time of year when parents and kids make a big decision, to ride or not ride the school bus! From the Project archives. I read a very funny quote today from a comedian, Jenny Johnson, which she said “If you rode the school bus as a kid, your parents hated you.” It made me […]

HR 101: Prepare to be surprised!

HR 101. If there is one thing I could give a new HR Pro it would be this simple advice. No matter how prepared you think you are, you really only need to prepare yourself, for one thing, being surprised. You don’t really get judged on your daily stuff.  Let’s face it, 99.9% of the […]
