TLS Continuum Part 88: I am a human capital asset manager, but who am I managing?

I began as the personnel administrator. I was the organizational fireman. But times have changed and now I am the gatekeeper to the organizational talents, attributes and skills. With that responsibility comes the need for me to assist the organization with the retention of current human capital but also to plan for the future talent needs of the organization.

It is from that perspective that I ask the question who am I managing? For the most part we are…

Channeling The Power Multi-Channel Marketing

The key to a successful multi-channel marketing plan is integration; a common challenge that most marketers face.

You Have To Help Us Find Your Need...

One of the oddest things about the beautiful human mind is that it can trick us out of getting what we need. And we can come up with an endless number of reasons why we haven't addressed a need but, the troublesome thing about "needs" is that they don't go away - on their own, that is.

Recently, I've been having some terrific conversations with some of the most intelligent men and women I've ever met.

Yet, there seems to be this common thread among many of them: many…

How did we lose our way?

On April 14 the Wall Street Journal ran an article about companies eliminating their HR departments. If you poll large enough population of corporate executives about the role of HR, a majority will tell you that HR is an obstacle to getting things done. A couple of weeks ago Robin Schooling, fellow HR blogger at HR Schoolhouse, stated she had asked a group of HR ladies how to increase employee engagement and their unanimous response was to hold a picnic. When we went to school many of us…

The One And Only Secret To Ultimate Success

In English idiom, "2 left feet" refers to an inept dancer and generally, a clumsy person. Putting this meaning aside, I wish I had 2 left feet so that I don't have to worry whether to go left or right, so I'll just stick to left and let Life happens as it always does, and if I walk left long enough, maybe enough people will start to question, "Does this guy ever turn right?"

Regardless of what 'success' means to you, for everyone reading this, it is a plus, not a minus. Success is a…

Customer Service should be about more than merely having bodies in seats. Customer Service should be about having

Customer Service *Professionals* in those seats.

If your company doesn't have professionals in your Customer Service seats, you're losing customer goodwill... And that'll cost you more branding dollars.

To say "We have a HUGE Customer Service Department!" is meaningless unless all these seats in your Customer Service Department are filled…

There are a several books that come to mind when I think about transformational leadership. One is “Leadership and Self-Deception” published by The Arbinger Institute and another is "Time to Think" by Nancy Kline. There are many others the common theme of which is that true transformational leadership—practicing a lifestyle that… Continue
