Came across this post from +Shane Snow on losing employees. We're trying to put together "alliances" to help staffers use their time at P2PU to achieve their goals and help the organization at once. What's your reaction and strategy towards employees who want to start their own thing? https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/article/20140901130739-7374576-the-one-reason-for-quitting-i-ll-never-be-mad-about

Something I think about a lot is the structure of comments in a learning network. I think that's one of the reasons Twitter is so powerful is that it's many:many versus one:one--people can engage right away and will get help & responses. Downsides: it's hard to find your crew off the bat, that takes some time. But it's time well spent.

If you're interested in space design / workspace interaction, the rise of "pop-up" structures have some pretty interesting implications for coworking, retreats, and collaborative creation

Many companies today are going the way of portable workspaces and a concierge type environment which really speaks to the mobile workforce we are quickly becoming.

Something I need to be told time and again: take constructive criticism slowly: 
"Evaluate it, slowly. Just as you shouldn’t summarily reject feedback, you shouldn’t automatically accept it either. Get in the practice of evaluating the feedback slowly. Chew on it for a day or more."

How can you take the sting out of feedback, and use it grow and get closer to achieving your full potential? Constructive criticism is an important ingredient for personal and professional development and for strengthening relationships. Whether it’s from your boss, a mentor, an executive coach, or even from anonymous surveys, [...]

When I think about crafting a diverse pipeline, seeing diversity in role models / senior positions / all departments helps people visualize themselves in those roles. 

"Research has found that observing individuals engaged in nontraditional 
careers is the number one way to foster student interest in those careers."

"What held them back from applying was not a mistaken perception about themselves, but a mistaken perception about the hiring process."

Look at that--the #Tchat  community is a bunch of change-makers--50% of you would elect to contract leadership to change a sour company culture.

Caught this gem from +Meghan M. Biro earlier today: ""One of the biggest pieces to retaining women in the workforce is thinking of them as individuals,"

These companies adapt to the needs of women, so employees aren't required to lean in too far.

What I really like about the article is the emphasis on flexibility versus absolute, macro-level "policies"--sees the workplace as full of individuals.

Measure what you value, and value what you measure. Let's be open about what we're measuring--and how we got there. 

If it’s a “secret sauce” algorithm on the other hand, what’s our option for public discourse on it? Where is our opportunity to examine it for racial bias, for bias against part-time students, or even for general error?
