★Branding Solves Business Problems★
Human Resources are at a critical crossroads in today’s global marketplace. One route leaves HR where it has predominantly been from the days of National Cash Register.

The downside is that you then are perceived as being a commodity or a mediocre part of the organization. The result being the functional manager’s feel they could very easily do without what you do. If you…Continue

LinkedIn routinely gets mentioned in the same breath as other social media platforms, but is distinctly different from Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and others. Conceived as a professional network rather than a social network, LinkedIn has stayed true to its mission of helping the world’s professionals become more productive and successful.

When you focus too much on what you want, the mind creates reasons why you cannot have it. This leads you to dwell on your weaknesses. The best way to avoid this is consciously focusing on gratitude!
Set aside time each day to mentally list everything you have to be grateful for.…Continue

Driving by the local church which has provided a great number of inspirations for past blog posts, they had on their billboard the statement “if our prayers are empty words so is G-d’s response” As many of you know I never talk religion in this space, and will not begin now, but it did bring up an interesting question. What if our organizational message is nothing more than empty words?
Listen to management and their response to what is keeping them up at night and many will tell you…Continue

Today is Friday, July 25, 2014. Welcome to Christmas in July!
Throughout junior and senior high school I was a C.I.T. (counselor-in-training) and, eventually a Counselor and Assistant Waterfront Director at the local Y day camp (Warwick, Rhode Island) and, then, overnight camp in Western Rhode Island.
In each place, every year on July 25, we celebrated Christmas in July - decorated evergreens (or, maybe, just the branches pieced together); made gifts - lanyards, popsicle…Continue

Once you have written a great post, (that is the hard part) it is relatively easy to post it on LinkedIn now.
After Vincent bugged me a few times to get started, I finally wrote my first post there today.
The layout was easy, because I had already written it in my own editorial system, with subheadings, italicized quotes, a few indents and two relevant links to Wikipedia entries. If I hadn't done that, it would have been just as easy, using the LinkedIn control buttons to set…Continue
