The Sound of Silence

Silence is a very funny thing.  There’s a proverb that teaches silence is also a speech… and I agree with that.  What that speech communicates depends on the context of the situation, of course.  One of my favorite words of wisdom by Emerson is actually on the subject of silence, “Let us be silent, that(…)

This is How You Remind Me

This is How You Remind Me

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1cQh1ccqu8M&w=420&h=315] In the last few months, I’ve been a little blown away at the shift from ‘follower’ to ‘leader(ish).’  I giggle when I show up on any list because there’s a total cool factor to it; (1) and I still do a little bit of a double-take when mentioned by my peers.  It’s not(…)

Talking #Talent with @DriveThruHR

Ha!  The show is based around the premise, “What in HR keeps you up(…)

On My Radar: #TNL Dallas

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PctD-8y0FRg&w=560&h=345] It’s probably safe to say that I’m not one of those people that are easily impressed. I don’t write glowing letters of recommendation for every person I’ve ever worked with or for; and I’m not going to recommend everything I ever come into contact with. So, when something hits my radar screen and(…)

Social Network Fatigue #SociallyStrangled

Somewhere around 7 or 8 years ago, I joined in on the Social Network Revolution. While I came in a little later in the game on Facebook; for most sites I joined when they were still in their ‘early adopter’ phases… I cruised around, figured out where I fit and went.to.town. And I definitely wasn’t(…)
