It is All Spock's Fault

I was talking with a neighbor the other day who informed me that the basis of the problems facing the nation and businesses was the spouting of Dr.Benjamin Spock. (Sorry you Sci-Fi geeks in the audience thought I meant Spock from the Star Trek series didn’t you!!) My neighbor’s contention was that those children brought up under the influence of Dr Spock have become self-serving individuals with little care for others.

He may have a grain of truth in that some of us raised our…

Same Difference

It's the difference which makes us choose one brand over another.  (#@)

E.g., Miracle Whip is different from other brands of mayonnaise. It's the difference which causes us to choose Miracle Whip over other brands.  As long as Miracle Whip remains the same and remains different from other brands of mayonnaise, it's the same difference we choose. (#$)

Get off the Bench

My local churches have come through again. One of them has a sermon posted for this weekend titled Get off the Bench. It made me think for a moment about how that would apply to HR. When you think about it that is where HR is today. We are on that bench. We as HR professionals seem to be complacent with staying in one position even if that leads us to be marginalized within our organizations. We get a request from management or an employee and unless it is in a narrow realm, our immediate…

Invisible Messengers (or A Medicine Called Forgiveness)

The two year long battle between my oldest brother and me ended just in time for us to spend the last six months of his life as friends - and in time for me to learn a rather startling lesson from him.



I suppose siblings need to fight among themselves in order to gain strength and adequate skills to survive in the external world, much as bear cubs need to fight among themselves to prepare them for their world.



But I'm happy that my brother and I got…
