The NRA, Tim McGraw and the Sandy Hook Promise: A Message for Management

The other day I was on Facebook and under the Trending section was an article talking about the push for a boycott of the upcoming concert to benefit the group by the National Rife Association. This reported boycott was based on the assumption that the group was advocating stricter gun laws. But before I get to my concerns regarding this and its applicability to management, for those of you who don’t know what the Sandy Hook Promise is consider this.

Sandy Hook Promise is an…

It is easy for someone to judge me who does not know me

This has been a very troubling last couple of weeks for me. I thought that we had progressed as a society beyond the point where we were stereotyping individuals based on our views of the world. Along with the rest of the world we watched the events unfold in reaction to New York, Ferguson, Cleveland and Phoenix. I was following a thread on Facebook in which a fellow member of the National Speakers Association was denied the opportunity to bring his powerful message to a University Campus…

Ready to empower change in your organization? Only if I don't have to resign she said

I recently had the pleasure of talking to the members of the Mobile, AL chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management. Prior to my presentation, during the networking opportunity I walked the room stopping at each table and asking whether they were ready to go back to work and empower change in their organization. At one of the tables I stopped at, I received the response “sure as long as I don’t have to resign.”

We can’t remove the organizational inefficiencies unless we…

Competence drives confidence

When have you been most confident at work, in any job? 

I strongly suspect it was when you had a high level of competence in that job. 

I recently had reason to recall the start of my recruitment agency career, in London twenty five years ago. I was twenty two years old. I was working in an office for the first time. I was living out of home for the first time. I was resident in a country that was not my own. I was in a job that I had zero previous experience in…

Not content to focus on the benefits that social and digital engagement can bring, some advocates like to issue warnings about the inevitable demise of organizations that don’t jump on the social and digital bandwagons. Succumbing to that pressure, or perhaps feeling compelled by the bandwagon effect itself, leaders have gradually become interested in adding various forms of…

I was talking with a friend the other day who, was lamenting that she had too much work and not enough time to get it all done. Her manager contended the reason was that she and her teammate did not understand how to manage their time. This is an age-old argument that I hear often in the workplace.
