Dream Jobs Are A Lie!

I hate that we are meant to feel that we should have our dream job.  It’s drilled into our society at nausea from mass media, our celebrities, our teachers and spiritual leaders. It’s all basically complete bullshit, but we eat it up like it came directly from G*d. It didn’t.  Whichever G*d you believe in, […]

If you want Genius, You Can’t manage to Ordinary

Most leaders I know want brilliant, creative, genius outcomes from their employees. Awesome! I love high expectations. Genius, though, is a fickle thing. 99.99% of us will never reach the genius stage in anything we do in life.

Email Heroes – Are you one?

7 Things You Must Do if You Want to Hire the Best Team!

Every once in a while I run into someone who “gets it”. Who understands recruiting, talent acquisition, and this whole big HR world at another level. They make it easy, or at least for them, it’s easy. It’s easy because they have a crystal clear vision of what they want and how they are going […]

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 […]
