Memorial Day  

“article courtesy of http://www.history.com”

Memorial Day, an American holiday observed on the last Monday of May, honors men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971. Many Americans observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials, holding family gatherings and participating in parades. Unofficially, at least, it marks the beginning of summer.

Are You The Wrong Type of Engaged Leader

“by Jennifer V. Miller, http://smartblogs.com”

Much of what’s written about “employee engagement” focuses on how to get your employees more involved at work. As a leader at your company, you’re also an employee; how “engaged” are you? And, are you engaged in the right things? Undoubtedly, you’re busy, but is that the same as engagement?

Employee’s Hard Lesson: Social Media and Customer Relations

“by, Eric B. Meyer, http://www.theemployerhandbook.com”

Raise your hand if you don’t own a smartphone.

According to this Pew survey, 64% of American adults own smartphones. And that’s just the adults.

So, it should come as no surprise that, in the brief amount of time it takes someone to pull a phone of a pocket, bring it to life, pull up a camera app, and hit record — five seconds maybe — anything you (or your employees) do in public can be stored and shared.

When You Make a Really Bad Hire

“by, Crystal Sprayggins, http://www.tlnt.com”

There’s a certain type of manager you only have to work with for, oh, five minutes, before concluding that they really suck.

Why? Mostly because said managers are extremely talented at making everything about them. As far as they’re concerned, you and your opinions are mostly garbage. (So if you’ve ever wondered why these managers always look like they smell something bad, well, that’s why.)

Why Young Talent Really Decides to Leave

“by, david Swanson, http://www.tlnt.com”

 My company is obsessed with Millennials, and for good reason.

The traditional old guard of global industry is rapidly changing – and the youngest ranges of the workforce are primarily responsible for the disruption.

With the average lifespan of an S&P 500 company down to 15 years, we are all actively investing resources to attract a new generation of talent that will keep our companies viable. 

Think about how to lead younger workers

Why Some Employee Turnover May Actually Be a Good Thing

“by, John Sullivan, http://www.tlnt.com”

 First of two parts

As turnover rates for employees continue to increase, there seems to be an almost universal agreement among HR and managers that “we must do something” to retain our employees.

But take a step back and think about it: Should all employees be kept or just the ones who currently and in the future produce high value?

In particular, should the employees with the most tenure be automatically kept, even though they may be expensive, and in some cases, they may be one of the primary roadblocks to corporate change?

In fact the goal is to identify the top potential issues that can be attributed to long-tenured employees

The Tim Sackett Project

 “article courtesy of http://www.timsackett.com”

I’ll never forget my first time: I was twenty-six years old.  At the time, I was living in Michigan and working in my first job right out of college.  I had been doing pretty well for myself and began moving up in the company.

I had just got put into a position where I had a couple of people reporting to me, and I had to hire a new person to report to me as well.  I hired this smart, young person right out of college. Their passion and energy immediately attracted to them.

8 Reasons We Need Women Leaders

“by, DailyWorth Team, https://www.dailyworth.com”

 The landscape for working women is rapidly changing: An increasing number of American women are the primary breadwinners in their families, and women are replacing male CEOs at a rate of 70 percent. But despite tremendous shifts in women’s roles, archaic notions about women’s capabilities, compensation, and treatment in the workplace persist.   

Leading in a professional capacity means pioneering change — even on a micro level — to

4 Hats Leaders Wear

“by Andrew Forster, http://businessguruzone.com”

 Lee Iacocca was fond of a quote relating to working in a business. It was, “Lead, follow, or get out of the way.” This is fine when applied to employees of an organization. However, executives and managers within your organization don’t have the luxury of making a choice. Your role and your challenge is, quite simply, to lead.Fortunately, research reveals that leadership is not solely an inborn trait. This means that the core elements of leadership can be learned and applied. Executives have the responsibility to attract and maintain productive followers who contribute to a profitable bottom line. However, if you are unwilling to demonstrate leadership behaviors to your team members, perhaps you should sign up for

How to Turbo-Charge Employee Recognition

“article courtesty of http://www.ericchester.com”

 Every manager has been told that it’s important to acknowledge, recognize, and reward their top performing employees.

Unfortunately, most haven’t been coached on how to do this effectively. And if one of the goals is to get the performer to continue performing at a high level, the why has to be linked to the what.

“You’ve done a good job around here, Jevon. Congratulations on being our Employee of the Month.” 

While Jevon may be happy that he’s being recognized, he (and his coworkers) probably don’t understand why.  As a result, Jevon (and his coworkers) may not know what specific things he is doing well and what kind of performance it takes to continue to receive these attaboys.
