A Diverse Workforce Calls For Leadership Vision #TChat 

Creating a diverse workforce takes not only vision, but foresight: By not actively creating a talent pipeline for women, we cut off half of the workforce at a time when we’re going to fall short. A number of programs are working to create a foundation for tomorrow’s talent — something I’m hearing about at IT@Cork European Technology Summit in Cork, Ireland, this week.

But despite the utter duh of what will happen to tech business is we stick to business as usual, some of us still seem to have our heads in the, well, cloud. Or shall I say: Cloud? No pun intended. Ok, well maybe just one.

6 Ways Vision Will Inspire Your Employees And Culture #TChat

Even as kids, we developed radar on leadership. Since we left the playground for the workplace, what’s changed? 

Effective leadership requires far more than a charismatic, alpha personality, and far more than a good PR team. 

Here’s 6 ways to hone its critical ingredient: Vision

Even as kids, we developed radar on leadership. Consider the classic schoolyard game, Follow the Leader. Everyone has to do exactly what the leader does, or they’re out. Growing up, I remember watching that game dissolve time after time. The leader would start doing scary climbs or huge leaps, and [...]

#TChat Recap: How To Turn Horrible Bosses Into Happier Relationships

A bad boss can undermine our ability to work happy and hard. Poor communication skills, micromanaging, lack of direction, bullying — any of these characteristics can make a boss difficult to work with leading to stress, anxiety, frustration, absenteeism and even depression.

This week we interviewed +Tony Deblauwe, Founder of consulting firm HR4Change. Tony spoke about how to turn horrible bosses into happier relationships. Tony offered a relaxed and engaging dialogue with lots of practical advice and research mixed in with real life experiences like his startling encounter with a new boss as a young(er) pro in the recruitment sector.

Relationship Building In A Vast Social And Mobile World #TChat

Friends, family, candidates for hire, new hires, employers, employees, managers, vendors, colleagues, algorithmic bots, cookies: the climate of social and mobile is cluttered and rich and very complex.

We are a truly social and mobile world now. But in terms of true relationship building, now that some of us have engaged or even mastered social, let’s think about it.

There has been a push towards employee retention & workforce development (at last), and wages are starting to rise as a result. Here you go: "What could possibly be driving this seeming flood of generosity from some of America’s largest and most successful companies?" http://www.ere.net/2015/05/06/whats-driving-the-pay-increases-and-what-it-means-to-recruiters/

Women In Technology: Why It's Good For Everyone  #TChat

I’m heading to Ireland soon to take part in the IT@Cork European Technology Summit. The conference is ambitious for certain and will be tackling hot issues from the Cloud, STEM, Digital Media and The Future Of Talent, with top-tier guests from industry leaders, such as VMware, and bright lights in tech education, such as CIT. 

I’m speaking on a benchmark panel (and a digital marketing one too with a different angle) talking about gender diversity in technology and business. And just to get this straight: gender diversity is business. To keep the private and public sectors going is going to take a bigger and broader talent pool. And while I look forward to the day when I don’t have to get on the soapbox for the STEM sisterhood — because it’s just a given — we’ve got work to do.

#TChat Preview: Why Internal Customer Service Is So Important

When we think of “customer service” we usually think of those to help us throughout the sales process, but service must be a total commitment not just for the front line, but for every employee of any business, from individual contributor to CEO.

Everyone has a customer. If it is not the outside customer, then it is the internal customer — anyone within an organization who at any time is dependent on anyone else within the organization. This is the root of internal service. It is the understanding that everybody supports everybody else in the organization.

Join Us Wed, April 29th 1 pm ET / 10 am PT as we talk about why internal customer service is so important with this week’s guest:
+Shep Hyken, Chief Amazement Officer at Shepard Presentations, customer service expert, keynote speaker and New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling business author.

Don’t Believe The Hype: Unlabeling Millennials #TChat

Ever since the CoBies — Google’s multidirectional Conference Bikes that transform going for lunch into a team-building exercise — the image of millennials in the workplace has turned into a kind of perpetual second-guessing.

So young, so self-possessed, so smart, so not into phone calls! So what else do they want?

This kind of approach is both fascinating and frustrating to HR in general and thought leaders especially (Ahem). It’s also beside the point. I’m not one to place labels on people. The “new generation” customarily befuddles the older; the older generation usually wants to take it upon themselves to school the younger.

Do You Fail At Leadership? #TChat

Let’s take a break from tech and talent analytics and think about bosses.

Good bosses make the news: consider Dan Price, the CEO in Seattle who was so moved by a study on happiness that he took an enormous salary pay cut to raise his employees pay to a live-able wage. Bad behavior makes the news: ESPN just proved that (again.)

But bosses who behave badly? We don’t hear enough about them. Why? For one thing, boss-positive evidence tends to be, well, material. The bad stuff tends to be more intangible (unless there’s a chair thrown). And we’re programmed to not recognize it. Why?
