TLS Continuum Part 12: VUCA and the TLS Continuum: Are they Incompatible?

I am currently reading a must read for all HR professionals, The Rise of HRWisdom from 73 Thought Leaders*, which was recently released by the Human Resource Certification Institute. It makes the case for the fact that the HR space has changed to one centered in VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous). The contributors…

TLS Continuum Part 10: The Ultimate Goal

It was our intent throughout the TLS Continuum Roadmap to lay out a clear path to reach where we are now.  In addition as we proceed with this and the subsequent installments It is critical that we make sure we are on the same page at this juncture.

In the nine parts of the series we began by looking at the importance of values. I was concerned that to understand the roadmap it is was necessary to understand the role of organizational values in the process improvement efforts. Part 2…

A Message to College Recruiting Leadership - You're Either In or Out

I consider myself extremely fortunate to have spent the past few decades working with organizations that viewed their college programs as critical to their ability to compete in the marketplace. However, in my observation this point of view seems to be the exception. Without strong support from an…

Drinking The Sand

From The American President:

People want leadership, Mr. President, and in the absence of genuine leadership, they’ll listen to anyone who steps up to the microphone. They want leadership. They’re so thirsty for it they’ll crawl through the desert toward a mirage, and when they discover there’s no water, they’ll drink the sand.  ~Lewis Rothschild

Lewis, we’ve had presidents who…

Leadership in Healthcare Recruiting - Seeking Individual Feedback on Leadership Behaviors (Quick Survey Below)

As a recruiter and graduate student, I had a number of questions on the state of recruiting (filling jobs) within the Healthcare industry. These questions were condensed to focus on just what leadership behaviors are experienced and preferred by employees interviewing and filling certain jobs and roles within hospital, medical, physician, or healthcare organizations. In addition to my own experience, I am reaching out to collect feedback and a better understanding of healthcare recruitment…

TLS Continuum Part 4: Do you know where you are going?

Whether you are just joining the series or have been reading this series from the beginning, we are essentially at the same point. From here on out in the series we have begun a very unique journey. I can provide you with the starting point but I cannot provide you with the end point. Further, if you choose this assignment there is no way to return to where you have been because that place in time no longer exists. So let’s begin.

I stated above that we were beginning a journey. Like…

Who Really Matters in the Global Workplace?

The third installment in the TLS Continuum series is devoted to discovering who really matters in the global workplace. It is the basis of an ongoing debate, sometimes a volatile one at that. The debate is on one hand talking about shareholders and on the other talking about stakeholders.

Which…

Try lending a hand rather than pointing a finger

What kind of manager are you? You really have only two options in today’s global workplace. The first one can be equated to the lion tamer in the circus. Is this a fair indication of your management style? If you still operate under the notion that your employees have a job to do. That they have a certain set way to do things and that each employee understands that their purpose is to follow in lack step your demands. As a manger, you firmly believe in command and control style of corporate…

You can't see the picture if you are inside the frame

On the way to the Veterinarian’s for an emergency run, we passed a church whose billboard stated “You can’t see the picture, if you are inside the frame.” The statement clearly applies to both our organizations and the dichotomy that exists in almost every workplace on the face of this globe we call earth.

Taiichi Ohno, the creator of the Toyota Production System, charged his managers with standing in a circle and observing the organization in real time. If we take Ohno’s charge in to…

How to become the critical HR leader you are meant to be

Human Resources are at a critical crossroads in today’s global marketplace. One route leaves HR where it has predominantly been from the days of National Cash Register. We are primarily charged with being the corporate fireman. We are there as the organizational administrative policeman. The downside is that you then are perceived as being a commodity or a mediocre part of the organization. The result being the functional manager’s feel they could very easily do without what you do. If you…

4 Things Great Managers Know About Building Teams

Lack of employee response directly related to management's empty words

Driving by the local church which has provided a great number of inspirations for past blog posts, they had on their billboard the statement “if our prayers are empty words so is G-d’s response” As many of you know I never talk religion in this space, and will not begin now, but it did bring up an interesting…

They can hear me now

Listen to most organizational development professionals and they will tell you that the key to organizational change is to communicate, communicate and then to communicate again. I would pose another question, and that is how are you communicating the message and how is it being received? Are your messages being…

Jack be Quick Jack be Nimble

A month ago, many of us were glued to the tube watching the finals of the World Cup from Brazil. It gave us an insight into how in order to win, the players had to be quick and nimble. Every second of the game, the players had to be alert to what was happening on the field. The goalie had to forecast the moves that were required in order to meet the incoming ball to keep out of the net. The player on the field had to judge when was the right moment to kick the ball or to…

I am just sayin....

My “daughter” likes to preface her more profound statements with the saying “ I am just sayin…” and it seemed appropriate for this post to begin with her saying. Over the past year there has been much discussion in the social media realm about the future of HR.

Recently I have read and heard an ongoing discussion about the future of the human resource profession. On one side is the school of thought that says we need to go back to the days when we were called Personnel. Back to the…

Actions have Consequences, choose wisely

The source for many of my posts over the years has been the local churches announcing their upcoming sermons for the Sunday services and this one is no different. Originally I thought about this in a different context but the events of the past week have changed my focus.

We are involved in an ever-changing world and these changes require that we change our focus and approaches in order to successfully deal with those changes.  They require us to change our corporate culture. Newton’s…

Why Would We Do That?

I recently picked up a copy of the local Tampa newspaper and found an article regarding the teachers being upset with the new accountability system. It was not that they were upset about the system.

They were upset about the fact that the data collected was not compared to anyone outside of their…
