Five minutes, 20 slides, each slide moves automatically every 15 seconds. Simple, yet so hard to pull off effectively! There are now well […]

Do you believe your HR leadership style is that of a “coach”?

I read an article in The New Yorker on the importance of “Coaching” by Atul Gawande.  Atul is a writer and a surgeon, smart and creative and I should hate him, but he’s so freaking brilliant! From the article: The concept of a coach is slippery. Coaches are not teachers, but they teach. They’re not […]

What we say versus What we want in a Job!

My wife always tells me it’s actions, not words that make a difference. You can say all of this great stuff, but if you do nothing, it’s meaningless. I think we would all agree with this. So, when we hear graduating students, candidates, and employees tell us what they really want is “Meaningful Work” in […]
