When Dave Ulrich Speaks About HR, Everybody Listens

HR author and expert Dave Ulrich

Back in the summer of 2010, shortly after launching TLNT, I referred to Dave Ulrich as “an all-around HR Guru” and said he was “one of the greatest HR thinkers of our generation.”

If anything, I was probably too modest in my description of him.

The Harvard Business Review describes Dave as “one of the world’s leading human capital/HR experts,” and he certainly is, but he is also a Professor of Business Administration at the University of Michigan and best-selling author of books such as The Why of Work: How Great Leaders Build Abundant Organizations; and, HR from the Outside In: Six Competencies for the Future of Human Resources.

Yes, Dave Ulrich is as close as you get to an HR legend — and that’s why he’ll be speaking at TLNT’s High Performance Workforce Summit May 6-7 in Atlanta. Read more…

Yes, NASA is probably the ultimate high performance workforce.

Getting the Right Talent: It Takes a Lot More Than Just Recruiting Well

HPW Summit

Assembling the right combination of talent is about MUCH MORE than just recruiting well.

Cornerstone No. 1 (out of 3) for building a high performance workforce is “assembling the right combination of talent.” But what does that really mean?

It’s easy for people to jump to the conclusion that this is just a nice way of saying, “Recruit well.” If you recruit well, and recruit great people, it means you’ve got the right talent, right?

Wrong. Assembling the right combination of talent includes recruiting well, but there is much more to it. Read more…
