#Nextchat: Everything You Need to Know About Managing People

 


 

You’ve heard it said again and again, and perhaps you’ve experienced it yourself: People don’t leave organizations—they leave bosses. 

Bad bosses come in many varieties: abusive and toxic, lazy and incompetent. There are few things more miserable in the workplace, and an organization full of bad bosses will kill the culture.

I’m wrapping up three days of great key note presentations, awesome breakout sessions, and a vendor exposition covering a broad offering of Talent software, products and services at the 2018 SHRM Talent Conference & Exposition.

Want to Keep Your People? Then Protect What they Care About!

 

 

When I was playing with the idea to make a move, I sat down and asked myself, "what is important to me?"

As I sat down, my little girl came up to me and said, “Mommy, I am hungry and I want a snack!” That’s when it hit me! This little girl means the world to me.

I made up my mind at that moment: My move will be based upon what is best for my family.

I have onboarded a couple hundred new employees and the question that I...

Designing the Inclusive Employee Experience: Q & A with Joe Gerstandt #SHRM18

 

Full disclosure: I’ve been internet fan-girling over Joe Gerstandt for a while now. Why, you may ask. Well, his Twitter bio says, in part, “I speak, write, advise on issues related to Authenticity, Diversity, Inclusion…and I do it well.”  If you’ve been following me on any social media channel, you’ll know those are the top HR/workplace issues I’m interested in. Finding someone who always has something insightful to say on them, and actually interacts with people, was a treat. Thus, a Joe Gerstandt fangirl I became.
