Are we safe?

I recently conducted a two-day training class for business managers in the six-sigma methodology at a major university in which one of the participants stated that the least beneficial part of the course was having to create a project centered around an issue from their individual workplace. One of the participants responded that the project was their least valuable part of the course because his managers would never let him implement the project.

My first reaction along with the…

Engaging the Workforce- The Most Important Thing

Hiring is one of the most important things for any organization. Talented employees are the ones that are not easy to get, and it is very important to treasure such employees. To make sure such employees stay in the organization for a long time without letting go of their profile, the management must make sure that they are engaged in the most appropriate way.…

When Will They Ever Learn?

In their iconic song “Where have all the flowers gone?” Peter, Paul and Mary posed the question when will they ever learn. While not talking about war but rather our corporate environments on a global basis, I have the same question. In today’s global workplace it is mandatory that we not only talk the talk but walk the walk. Unfortunately, every day I see signs of where this is not the case.

Listen to your senior management as they proclaim that their people are their most valuable…

TLS Continuum Part 88: I am a human capital asset manager, but who am I managing?

I began as the personnel administrator. I was the organizational fireman. But times have changed and now I am the gatekeeper to the organizational talents, attributes and skills. With that responsibility comes the need for me to assist the organization with the retention of current human capital but also to plan for the future talent needs of the organization.

It is from that perspective that I ask…

TLS Continuum Part 87: Processes Gone Awry

First of all, let me extend my regrets for not keeping better in touch but I and my family have been fighting this bug that is flying around. Not the flu but close to it. It sucks to be under the weather.

This past week has been filled with more irony then I would want to have to experience but I did. It began with attending my local SHRM chapter meeting where the topic of the day was what to do in the case of an active shooter. During the presentation, my phone beeped with the…

6 Ways to Motivate New Employees Besides Money

We can all relate with the excitement that comes with a new job offer. The air is ripe with potential as soon as you successfully receive a job offer that can help you go up the career ladder. In most cases, the brewing excitement that accompanies the first few days of job acceptance fades away soon. Soon after onboarding, new joiners are seen struggling under the mounting work pressure.

In a totally new work environment, on-boarders need motivation from their managers to take up…

TLS Continuum Part 85: Are you in real time or in a bubble?

In Part 84, I posed the question as to whether your organization viewed the global workplace from looking in the mirror or looking out the window.  I suggested that the view from the mirror is what you think you do and the view from the window is what your clients tell you what you do or they need.

The difference between the two views creates what we call a gap analysis.…

TLS Continuum Part 84:The organizational view of the world via a mirror or a window?

The other day I was listening to an installment of the Voice of Experience from the National Speakers Association in which the presenter talked about the different view one gets from the mirror versus the window. There is a direct applicability to the TLS Continuum.

In order to achieve sustainable process improvement, you must begin with a clear picture of what it is you do. For time immortal, we have been coaching our human capital assets to refine their capabilities into an elevator…

TLS Continuum Part 83: The HR Missing Link- Have You Found it Yet?

In Part 82 of this series, I posed the question whether or not human capital management was dead or not. In this part I want to suggest that there is a vital path to your survival both as an HR professional and as part of your organization.

The C-Suite office holders of the 21st century are in a quandary. They are confronted with a wide-ranging audience they must answer to. This audience includes the stakeholders of the organization as well as the human capital assets. The…

TLS Continuum Part 82: Is Human Capital Management Dead?

As I listen to the Internet scuttlebutt I have cause to stop and consider whether the HR profession, as we know it , is thriving or either dying or has already died. I have a fellow consultant who told me that the reason why I am not getting the interest in some of my programs is because the majority of HR people are ignorant. Others tell me that we, as a profession, have no fathom how to respond to the demands and needs of the C-Suite. So, what is the dilemma here?

To answer that…

TLS Continuum Part 81: Who are we as an organization/as a society?

I am currently experiencing the thrills of having a 16-month old grandson running around the house. This is an experience, which I have not had to deal with in over thirty years since my sons were born. But the events of this past weekend make me stop and wonder what type of organizations or society are we leaving for him, as he grows older?

In working with clients I advocate that in order for continuous process improvement efforts to be successful, your organization needs to become…

TLS Continuum Part 80: Don't Ask. Don't Tell

This blog post does not refer to the former government policy regarding sexual orientation in the military. Rather this refers to a vital part of the TLS Continuum and the voice of the customer. We can’t improve our processes without the input from our customers. However it does no good for you to ask the customer what keeps them up at night if you are not going to follow through on resolving those concerns.

Let me give you an example. We recently had a problem with our 43inch TV and…

TLS Continuum Part 79: The Continuous Process Improvement Perfect Storm

If you watch the TV or read the newspaper over the past month you have seen a rash of incidents in which the new president says one thing and his cabinet members say something entirely different. This inconsistency of message leads to an inconsistent message to the employees of the government, our allies and more important to the customers of this country – its citizens. I hear many media pundits who lay out what this could mean for the country in the years to come. This is not a political…
