Most find that this is tough to answer — unless you have been through it before.

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…

At NASA, Failure is the Most Crucial Component of Innovation

Jeri Buchholz

When it comes to taking risks, NASA — America’s space agency — is probably near the top of the list.

And, it underlies the organization’s vision, which is this: “To reach for new heights and reveal the unknown so that what we do and learn will benefit all humankind.”

Yes, NASA is probably the ultimate high performance workforce. That’s why Jeri Buchholz, Chief Human Capital Officer and Assistant Administrator for Human Capital Management, at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, will be a keynote speaker at TLNT’s High Performance Workforce Summit May 6-7 in Atlanta.

Addressing Manufacturing’s Unique Talent Management Challenges

TLNT_300x300shadow

In case you haven’t heard, manufacturing in the U.S. is making a comeback.

Despite the old and outdated notion that most American manufacturing moved overseas, manufacturing has actually been growing steadily and now supports an estimated 17.4 million jobs in the United States —about one in six private-sector jobs, according to the latest figures from the National Association of Manufacturers.

More to the point, more than 12 million Americans, or 9 percent of the workforce,  are employed directly in manufacturing.

Yes, manufacturing is a growing and critical part of our economy, and that’s one of the reasons why TLNT is putting on the first-ever HR in Manufacturing Forum Nov. 4-5 in Fort Worth, Texas. Read more…

Ignite HR 2014: Easy For Gandhi to Say

ignitehr-logo

We’re rapidly coming to the end of our Ignite HR presentations from May’s HR Reinvention in Omaha, and I think you’ll agree, it’s been an interesting mix of subjects and insights.

Part of it, of course, is the unique Ignite HR format — five (5) minutes, 20 slides and exactly 15 seconds per slide, max — but another part is the very diverse areas that the speakers found to dig into.

Today’s presentation is pretty much defined by this message that caught my eye and has a prominent place in my notebook from the conference: You must be the change you wish to see. Read more…

Ignite HR 2014: Horribly Valuable Lessons From Pee Wee (Not Herman)

ignitehr-logo

As a very, very long week mercifully comes to an end — that’s what spending five (5) days in Florida at the SHRM annual conference does to you — it’s probably time for an Ignite HR presentation that is a little bit different.

What’s that you say? Isn’t Ignite HR already different enough?

Well, yes — you would be right. The Ignite HR format of five (5) minutes, 20 slides and exactly 15 seconds per slide, max, IS very different, but most of the presentations featured this week on TLNT from last month’s HR Reinvention in Omaha have been HR or talent management focused. Read more…

Ignite HR 2014: The Day Integrity Died

ignitehr-logo

Did you know that integrity is the opposite of hypocrisy?

I didn’t, but I learned that at HR Reinvention in Omaha last month, and I got it from the Ignite HR presentation by Janyne Peek Emsick titled The Day Integrity Died.

It was another presentation that seemed particularly suited for the Ignite HR format – five (5) minutes, 20 slides and exactly 15 seconds per slide, max — and that’s not always true. Some topics, or perhaps I should say “some people,” just aren’t able to focus their thinking into a tightly managed format.  Read more…
