This is a weird week. I worked Monday and Tuesday, had Wednesday off, then worked Thursday and today. I can’t decide if I like the break in the week or if Thursday was really just a second Monday. Guess that depends if you are a glass half full/empty kind of person.
Anyway, thanks for tuning in today! I’m happy to help you pass the time at work.
So this week I have some great info I was reading on the web but first I want to draw your attention over to a guest post I did for Jessica Miller-Merrell at blogging 4 jobs. Jessica is an amazing HR speaker and writer and I am honored to appear on her blog. I strongly encourage you to connect with her on Twitter at: @blogging4jobs. Here’s the post!
Mad About Leadership – this is a book excerpt, not long though only about three pages, about the lack of standards in the leadership industry. Very interesting read, I’ve put the book on my To Read list.
Microsoft’s Downfall – this is only an excerpt of the full article from the magazine but it packs a punch. Apparently Microsoft was big on stacked ranking…oh yea there is some other stuff in there about technology too.
And of course some good stuff from the HR blogsphere:
Is HR in a Bad Mood – Another excellent post from China Gorman and her data point series.
What’s hawt in Video Employment Branding and Recruiting – love how this post talks about great videos but also includes them in the post, I want to work at Zendesk is all I have to say.
Maximizing Millenials – great infographic, who are millenials? how to manage millenials via Performance I Create
That’s it for me this week. See you next week where I’m talking about The Rare Find, my new favorite book!
