On his blog, Bruce recently shared this scenario: At a major food conglomerate, summer interns are usually given an assignment, such as a big data-entry project, that they can complete during the course of their sum...
Executive Team Building – Establishing A Team Direction
by Shari Roth - Sep, 2011
One of the major roles of executive leadership is to build solid teams. Executive team building for results is grounded in knowing and understanding the direction of the team. The direction sets the stage for the purpose of the team and where the team is going. Without establishing a team direction you really don’t have a team at all. What you have is a bunch of individuals who are loosely affiliated but everyone goes off...
Back to the Future: Recruiting Circa 2020
by Lou Adler - Jul, 2011
As I ponder the future of where our industry is headed, I’m reminded of Geoffrey Moore’s technology adoption curve, from his fine book, Crossing the Chasm.

It’s not surprising that technology, especially the use of advanced business networking to...

How Performance Reviews Brand the Reviewer
by Dawn Lennon - Apr, 2011
It's a draw. All the arguments about performance reviews are correct. The process can be fair or unfair, useful or a sham, legitimate or bogus. It all comes down to us-the reviewers. Do you care? For many supervisors, it's about the paper, not the process. We whine about writing comments, deciding on ratings, and holding those dreaded employee review meetings. We forget that performance reviews are about feedbac...
How to Orient A New Team Member
by Alexandra Levit - Apr, 2011
When I remember new hire orientations of jobs past, I think of watching cheesy, outdated videos, completing a marathon of poorly photocopied forms, and being escorted to an empty cubicle three hours before the end of the business day, left to wonder how I should pass the time until my new boss got back from an offsite meeting.
