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…

See It!! Feel It!!! Change it!!!

In the beginning of March I will be traveling to Raleigh to participate in the Capital Associated Industries Conference "HR 20/20: Focus, Evolve, Lead, facilitating a breakout session on identifying waste in your organization. As I look around the HR space many conferences are including similar programs on change management. However the…

Nothing can be legally right if it is morally wrong

Let me begin by stating that in no way am I espousing one religious view over another. Further those of you, who have followed my blog since its inception in 2007, know that I rarely touch on the ethics end of our profession. Having said that one of my local churches once again posted the Sunday sermon topic,…

Determining How Much Time to Dedicate to Innovation

Companies know innovation is critical to long-term survival, but even creative giants like 3M and Google have struggled with policies that give their engineers time to tinker.

While popular creative wisdom suggests leaders must schedule time for innovation to occur, the question becomes how much…

How Do Employees See You?

One of my favorite newsletters is Monday Morning Memo which is never not waiting faithfully in my inbox on yes, Monday morning.  The latest by Roy Williams is about communicating with customers using the unique ability to see things (your business) from the outside looking in. Some things to think about…

The way you as a business owner see things probably has nothing to do with how others, including your…

Growing as a Servant Leader

There is something missing out there

Human Resource Executive magazine in their September 16 issue reported the results of the 2013 “What’s Keeping You Up at Night” survey. As in past years 35% of the respondents replied that getting employees engaged within the organization. The ongoing solution was employee engagement surveys every 12-16months. While surveys are fine, they tend not to explain some of the reasons for the non-engagement

Without exception every organization is seeking to find and retain engaged employees…

Is it really what we think it is?

Over the past week I have been going through some family issues which began with a medical emergency last Friday. Everyone we talked to from our family practitioner to the ER medical team believed that the signs pointed towards one thing. When the surgeons went in to operate on Saturday morning, they found an entirely different problem was manifested in the same environment. Upon reflection we do the same steps in the HR world we work in.

Every single day we are confronted with…

Is HR Management a true System?

In the LinkedIn groups (TLS-TOC Lean & Six Sigma in particular) there has been an ongoing conversation about when you merge the three. In the course of the discussion we posted a comment regarding an output from a seminar we were facilitating which talked about an organization in which the job requisition was reviewed and approved three times by the same person in a hiring effort. One of participants replied that that was an indication of mismanagement not a system problem. He further…

Liablity or Asset- The Marissa Mayer Edict

It has been an interesting week between Marissa Mayer's clamp down on telecommuters at Yahoo and Sheryl Sandberg's pitch that women sabotage their own careers.In both arenas there seems to be a criterion missing. That criterion is how do you view your human capital in your organization - are they a liability or are they an asset? Let's look at the two events separately:

Marissa Mayer contends that in order to make Yahoo more productive she wants all human capital assets under one…

It is choice not chance that defines our destiny

Awhile back we posted a blog entry in this space based on the marque of a local church. When I drove by it the other day the announcement of this Sunday's sermon was on the marque and is the title of this post.

I hear everyday people telling me that they know things need to change within the organization, but it will take time and they will wait it out until the organization gets around to changing the culture or the policy, usually by managerial edict.

The problem is that is…

What is HR Excellence?

We had in one of the first posts here asked you to define what you thought HR Excellence was. From the level of responses I am assuming ( I know the problems with assumptions) that you are having a hard time coming to some sort of consensus. So let me tell you what I feel the components of the definition of HR excellence are:

Achieving HR EXCELLENCE is the result of:

CARING more about your organization than others think wise;

What are…

Those People

While checking my LinkedIn groups this morning I found this post from Seth Godin

At a recent seminar, a woman who helps run a community college stood up to ask a question.

"Well, the bad news," she said, "is that we have to let everyone in. And the truth is, many of these kids just can't be the leaders you're describing, can't make art. We need people to do manual…

Let's Play HR

To my HR purist friends I apologize if you think I believe that HR does not have a vital role within our organizations.I am in no way equating HR to playing the child game of house. What I am suggesting is that there is a new visitor in  the neighborhood.

For some time I have had some elementary interest in a new tool to increase employee engagement called gamification. It came to the forefront when I received a LinkedIn Invite from Noreen Poli of…

Mirror , Mirror on the Wall, Who is the Fairest of them all?

On two separate times in the past week, my inbox contained entries which centered around the image that the corporation puts forth to the marketplace. In each one to some degree the organizations involved forgot what their purpose is -- to acquire and maintain customers. To do that we need to have the "right person, in the right job, at the right time and in the right place."

Consider these events. The first involved a cheerleader on the Baltimore Ravens. She was banned from being…

Really, Isn't my job difficult enough?

Here we are on the weekend before Christmas and the Iowa Supreme Court handed us an early "gift" Before I explain what the gift was, let me take you back in time to when Bobby Darin was still performing and he sag the following words:

"WelI … I don’t know what you got But it’s got me and baby I’m hooked Like a fish in the sea. You make angles call from above. You could make the Devil fall in love. An-a … who-o-o wouldn’t fall for irresistible you."

Over the past several decades…

How do I Add Value to the Relationship?

I recently was involved in a conference call with a prospective client who was asking me whether I would be available to come speak to their office meeting about how the staff could work closer with corporate HR professionals. I got off the call and began to look back to the time in my career when I was in the external recruiter's seat and what was important to me to establish that relationship.

So for what it is worth, here are my thoughts.

  1. The Toyota Production System…
