Turn Off the Web Cam

We are barely 3 weeks into most of the #StayAtHome recommendations and we are already over the web-based meetings with video. We are exhausted! Our new verb "Zooming" is zapping our energy but we can't figure out why. After all, isn't this what we wanted? To be able to work from home? And if you …

Ordinary Things

It's been a rough couple of weeks at my house. I'm trying to take comfort, find blessings in those little things in life that make life worthwhile. I asked friends on Twitter to share their favorite ordinary things and of course, was not disappointed. Here are a few of my favorite responses. https://twitter.com/Paula4Harvey/status/1242471131174637568 https://twitter.com/traciespon/status/1242419182186237953 https://twitter.com/WendyMSHRMPHR/status/1242512624727797760

The Good Project

One of my favorite shows of all time recently came to an end. Sooner than I wanted, but they went out on their own terms and left us wanting more rather than wondering why they were still going, milking the story for more than it was worth (The Simpsons, I'm looking at you). The Good …

If You Say Yes, What Are You Saying No To?

At #HRRedefined19, my new good friend Laura shared this quote. I thought about it quite a bit this summer as I took on a new set of hiring managers at work, a Girl Scout weekend summer camp, some conferences, AND joining the cast of the local community theater version of Mamma Mia, I was saying …

A Weird Thing that I Love

At the SHRM19 conference, the first session I sat in, Delivering Happiness, the first question Jenn Lim asked us "what's one weird thing that you love?" And of course, I came up with live tweeting HR conferences. This is probably the weird thing that makes me happy: live tweeting HR conferences 😁 #SHRM19 #HRSocialHour #DHMovement …
