"What's your biggest weakness?" = a terrible question. Most interview techniques, from hiring managers to candidates, are flops. Can we improve them?

Your employee recognition is likely all lip-service BS. But it doesn't have to be that way: http://bit.ly/2a2sjc3
Most bosses do NOT care about employee recognition ideas. They care about hitting targets, plain and simple. But there are ways to fix this.

Trust in the workplace seems to be in global decline; about 46% (1 in 2) people seem to have trust for their employer. Why? And what can we do now?

Business training is crucial to separating great organizations from merely good ones -- and to building teams. Unfortunately, it's rare. What now?

Strategic management really doesn't exist these days. Most management is about tasks and targets. But to try and be strategic, consider four concepts.

The gig economy isn't a fad, or a millennial invention. It's here to stay. 40 percent of Americans by 2020, baby! But why? And how? Let's explore.

Let me get this straight. Most people only stay at jobs for 4 years, but we don't review them/get feedback until 1 year? How about a 90 day review?

Business development challenges used to often be external (equipment, space, tech, etc.) Now 94% of them appear to be internal. What can we do?

Your recruiting process sucks. Instead of capturing you the best talent available, it alienates them. So, how do you improve it?

Tight deadlines are a common work concept and a common interview question, sure. And how you respond says much about you -- and where you work too.

When your manager is transparent in their actions (about what they care about vs. don't) but not in their words, that's a Cancelled Meetings culture.

How many of your projects at work get caught in an approval process vortex? You know the drill: revisions, hurry up and wait, etc. Why is this?

I write a lot at "The Context Of Things" blog. I live in Texas (again). I'm interested by a ton of different things.

Bragging rights
I can have a conversation with you on parking minimums, French politics, college football, and flawed hiring processes with almost the same amount of ease.
