The Five Tools of Leadership Excellence: Spotting & Screening Future Leaders

Given the increasing complexity of the world in which we live, and the demands placed upon leaders, most modern theories of leadership are holistic in nature. Being the baseball fan that I am, I like to think of leadership in terms of five tools. Just as a five tool player can run, hit for power and average, field, and has a strong arm, a five tool leader is possessed of all that is required for holistic excellence.

Should Work Be Fun?  Separating ‘Business Heresy’ From Reality

“It’s not supposed to be fun; if it were fun, it wouldn’t be called work.” But are the concepts of work and fun truly mutually exclusive? For those of us lucky enough to be practitioners of our passion, we know that work, fundamentally, can be fun, and that when it comes to business and pleasure, it’s not an either/or.

What Can Cloud Do For The World of Work?

For all the time and resources invested by HR and executive leadership to drive cross-functional collaboration and enterprise alignment among teams, the simple sharing of systems goes a long way into embedding – and automating – the business of doing business across your business.

Don’t Rain on the Parade: Cloud Computing and Leadership

“The Cloud” is one of those technology marketing terms which represents a shift in the way technology is delivered; after all, you’d have to really be tuned out to not hear the word ‘cloud’ at least once every 15 minutes. Oddly enough, though, cloud computing is the ultimate it’s-been there-a-long-time technology. And it is forcing leaders and HR practitioners to sit up and take notice. Why?

Facebook at Work: The Professional Future of Your Personal Network

The short history of social media is littered with tools and technologies that were, for a brief moment, the “next big thing” for business, the proverbial ‘killer app’ that would justify, and expand, the investment of brands and organizations in the social web.

Going Global: Workers Without Borders

While many global companies divvy up territories and regions like they’re hashing out the Treaty of Versailles, the increased interconnectedness, not to mention economic interdependence, of today’s workplace necessitates a new approach to the challenges of international business.

This is particularly true when it comes to recruiting and retaining top talent, whose skills, experience and expertise transcends borders; international teams and work groups are not only becoming an increasing reality, but an important consideration in today’s talent and diversity strategies.

Internal Mobility: An Inside Look At Talent

In theory, employers and talent organizations almost always have a “promote from within” philosophy that formally or informally favors internal candidates. In practice, however, internal mobility is frequently hindered by cumbersome processes, company politics and issues like salary compression which unilaterally matter more to HR than the business for which they’re recruiting.
