    I applaud the trend among Millennials to quit jobs that aren't working for them. They are at their peak in terms of mobility; while I think it's painful for corporations - I do believe it will drive change.

    Millennials look at companies as the paths of their thoughts and when these thoughts are blocked ,not addressed or expressed the relationship reach a premature end.Many young talents,so,quit their jobs either because they don't have enough patience or energy to bend with the trend of conformity inside many companies or because their pockets ,time and hearts are filled because they were born with a silver spoon in their mouth.

    In General,considering millennials as loyal assets in their companies is a welfare and a fantasy that go beyond the logic of today's business reality and the well- established economic theories.Thank you @Michael Schneider and welcome on beBee.

    Hi @Sandra Smith, I agree, the stigma needs to end. I don't see it ending anytime soon because of the lack of awareness, education and quite frankly many people still do see Mental Illness as a weakness, not a real illness. I have written a lot about Anxiety Disorder and the stigmas attached, including the workplace too. Maybe if more of us keep writing, supporting each other's writing, one day the voices will grow louder and together, we can all affect change. Thanks for sharing this!

    #5 Thank you, @Harvey. Exactly right - you cannot show favouritism at work. But you can foster an environment where it is not seen as favouritism - because there is a genuine need for that person's accommodations. For example, at Symbian, a senior-staffer had a syndrome that made her very tired during the day. So she was allowed to have a couch in her office to rest on. No-one begrudged her because it was explained why she needed it. Of course, having a room with a day bed that anyone can use may be a more fair and diplomatic way to tackle the problem, if practical...

    @Sandra Smith a compelling post. Having lead many people within the construction industry and now in the education industry, I am recognizing this as a growing concern. We work with folks at a very personal level to help them achieve job satisfaction.

    We have recognized that this is the best way to address the minor/major issues that are brought on by an individuals perceptions of themselves. I will have to say though, leadership has to have a very strong personal conviction to address this in the workplace. Although some of the returns on investment are great the fall out within the larger group can be costly.

    Giving an individual special consideration due to mental illness can be seen as favoritism to others who are experiencing temporary bad judgement. Leaders must balance the support of one by the perceptions of others within the workforce. This is not a cop out statement but rather an understanding that the issues of mental illness are growing and the leadership will require a different perspective. But so will co-workers.

    @Ali Anani this is a topic which needs more engagement overall in most aspects of life. To be engaged with the people and the job at work can make an individual very productive and quite happy. This is important because the feeling of happiness should transcend most feelings, as it opens the door to gratitude, acceptance, appreciation and it increases the value of the job. Why does this matter... it should if one desires an environment of loyalty, focus and growth. Harmony. Just some thoughts as I read. Quite a very important post for pondering. Thank you

    #31 Thank you to @Ali Anani for bringing your comment to my attention @Amina Alami. It is great to see the same words being viewed from a different perspective. I find our perspective of the value of newer or older employees, their degree of freshness in relation to their engagement very important. For me it brings up the complexity of the sense of smell experienced from the view of the "ventilation" system of the environment. If newer employees come in with a fresh smell only to be prevented from "blossoming" (referring to Dr. Ali's next buzz The Butterfly Effect of Passion) in a well ventilated environment, they may temporarily engage and will either leave their current environment or become older employees still engaged in spite of losing their fresh smell. They adapted to the environment producing the same low quality smell, rather than either leaving to preserve their freshness or contributing to the environment by breathing fresh air into it. Thank you Dr. Ali and Amina for the opportunity to engage in this dynamic discussion.

    Amina Alami
    11/01/2017 #31 Amina Alami
    This article is astounding Ali Anani! You so beautifully stated," this was a refreshing smell of disengagement. What a paradox!" In my humble opinion, the young and fresh employees may disengage easily, even if they smell right, when their company doesn't practice leadership development programs and mentoring to keep them fully engaged. On the other hand, the wrinkled employees, even if they may not smell so right, they could still be fully engaged if they finally found their fulfilling job.
    Harvey Lloyd
    11/01/2017 #30 Harvey Lloyd
    #21 Yes, the mentoring word is what we speak. Expectations are designed and built by many aspects of our life. We all need that feeling of confidence and in most cases with our next generation that confidence has set up expectations that are unrealistic. I can say this was the case for myself and the many i have discussed employment with at our firm.

    Could we make the statement, expectations developed on poor understanding will always produce poor engagement.

    @Jared 🐝 Wiese you have interpreted my comments and extended the discussion into new realms. My conspiracy theory might be that we are placing a large portion of our hiring expectation on education. Given this we now assume "soft skills" are present. We judge our newer generations with this in mind.

    I'm not a ridged fan but none the less a fan of Maslow's hierarchy. Soft skills allow us to self actualize through experience. We cant gain experience unless someone engages us and our expectations will never shift. The individual experiencing this will struggle through out their career and many other areas.

    Just a few minutes a day, or changing how we interface with others could increase another's opportunity for success. But in the end each individual has to choose their path. So as you say they need to be released.

    lovely insight sir @Ali Anani! but, i am bit confused, how far an artist bothered about glue, when he is only focused on his creative inclination? will it be sensible to be bothered about glue, instead of being absorbed with his creative frame of mind? besides, i believe, quality lies with his creation, not with mere ostentation with its eye catching form. content is the soul of his creation, not the mere form only. it is equal to the metaphor, that we must judge from one tree to judge about the entire forest and its beauty and attractive quality is the only determining factor to gauge the potentialities of its distinctive dispensation, for which it eventually make sometimes epoch making presentation! however, intriguing post indeed sir. enjoyed read. thank you for the share.

    One of our main tasks is not to build a single charismatic leader with a smell of fragrance,but to build a whole organization around its own fragrance.
    The beauty of the organizations with enduring smell begins when they build internal and external organizational streams that will never dry,going up and down and in all directions causing no wrinkles.

    #12 Harvey, I think I see what you mean - even from a big business perspective ;)
    I have mentored and trained many college grads and new hires. Interesting ties to this discussion.

    Some are there for a paycheck (expectation) while others want to fit in and move up (engagement).
    Some you can tell something once and they not only do it but run with it and expand on it. Others, eventually don't "fit in" and are fired.

    This is why, when I interview people, I put more "glue" on the soft skills: expectations ("So, what's the pay and when do I get YOUR job?!") and attitude ("Ask not what your [company] can do for you";), hunger and thirst, ability and desire to learn and contribute to the team.
    Jared 🐝 Wiese
    10/01/2017 #20 Jared 🐝 Wiese
    This resonates so well: "Wrinkles form when the top layer dries faster than the bottom layer or when top layer is applied on a contaminated surface. The top layer in organization is the upper management. If the upper management interest in the organization dries up then the glue that bonds the organization together."
    Great metaphors! I've seen so many upper management come in and - let's say - not adhere well. They are soon gone like the wind, with those who are more engaged and dedicated feeling the breeze.

    10/01/2017 #19 Sara Jacobovici
    Part 2/2 Thank you @Ali Anani for bringing my attention to @Harvey Lloyd's comment and thank you Harvey for the mention. I will take a couple of lines from Dr. Ali's buzz to reflect on expectations and engagement. Dr. Ali writes, "Not all glues are the same [and painting] the "organization wagon" with low quality paint will lead to all sorts of problems..." You both touched on the "fit" or shared vision. If the leader, who is the glue, is best suited for a certain type of surface or purpose and the team members or staff are made up of other "stuff", it will not lead to engagement. The glue has to permeate the surface while it is still wet before it will take hold; it needs time to make itself felt. And the quality of the paint, or the investment in the company, whether time and/or effort, will determine the quality of the environment. Unfortunately, some leaders are "blind" to the impact they have on their environment and its influence on the rest of the people involved. If their focus is away from the results of the poor quality of engagement, they will only experience the outcome when things begin to "fall apart". As always, gentlemen, thank you for the opportunity to engage at this level of quality!

    #1 It might be they act like this because of being scared, but in business life, I have found this situation more than once, and in no case, the inception was due to fear. In most cases, they achieved this strong position due to an initial well-deserved trust of the management, by having outstanding results or by having skills which others could not have at the time. After that, they converted it to their own profit, feeling "being more boss than the real boss".

    I find it a better way to described sacred cows by Scared Cows. Just by shifting the position of a in scared to read scared. I believe they do what they do because they are scared to lose their status. They have concern for their status and nothing else.

    As always @Ali Anani "reads" me perfectly. Thanks Dr. ali for bringin my attention to this great buzz. @John Whitehead, you present an experience most of us can relate to and certainly identify with in a narrative that makes it easy to hear. As Dr. Ali pointed out, I appreciate when you write, ""One of the biggest lessons I've learned is to expect the unexpected: be open to opportunities as they arise and don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone". This can lead to what has worked for me to gratefully not have to experience the imposter syndrome anymore. First, I always find a way of asking as many questions beforehand regarding expectations; from the organizers or other team members. Then, in expecting the unexpected, my focus is on trying to imagine, where I will be, with who I will be and why I will be there; whether presenting, training, joining a new team , and so on. After all that, I go into the experience not focusing on me or others but on the work itself. With my focus on the work, I have shifted any attention from me or others to the content of the gathering. And since I wouldn't be doing what I was doing if I didn't have an interest or care enough about the work, immersing myself in the work beats any other place, comfort zone or not. Thanks for sharing your experiences and success story John.

    @John Whitehead, I love what you say here: "there is a reason you are here; someone thought you are the right person for this role. So do your best and be who you are. You know your stuff — be confident in that." Amen to that. It's something that we tend to forget and we do a disservice to ourselves when we do. Maybe it is due to outside forces or our own internal conflicts that can lead us down that road. But you are right. There is a reason. And likely, a steadfast one. So grab it by the reigns and go because you just never know. And if whatever it is doesn't work out, then perhaps it is leading you to the next thing that will. Growth doesn't come without challenges. We just have to be willing to accept them and learn from them - even if we don't understand the lesson at first. Thank you for sharing this. I really enjoyed reading it.

    This was a good discussion about the "imposter syndrome", i have never heard it labeled. This is a concept that when traveling in uncharted areas of growth can become a battlefield of the mind.

    I am not sure we can avoid it. There seems to be a competitive communications style that feels it must challenge people in their growth. This would establish a narrative of constant seeking understanding in the area of your growth. Early in my small business journey i was lucky and had a few mentors who recognized my blind exploration and provided complimentary guidance.

    Great thoughts here and certainly is a worthy topic.

This is especially true for Millennials and Gen Z, the biggest age demographics who also represents the next generation of leadership. It's good to know you are training people on "soft skills" -- as mastering these skills enhance interpersonal communication and customer service, among other things. Keep buzing in 2017, John!

    Also, at the risk of being controversial, I would note that diversity includes white people too, as race is supposed to be "color blind" under the law (at least in USA -- emphasize "supposed to be"). Why? Because the demographics of the USA are rapidly changing with the combined number of minority groups outnumbering whites in nearly all big cities, the so-called "minority-majority." Moreover, as traditional diverse populations increase in number, whites continue to stagnate and decline -- especially white men. Just saying, it's a new world out there, or soon will be. Close

    It doesn't need to be fully repealed to kill it. The PPACA legislation has an Achilles Heel to it. Sever that, and it will die a floundering and dramatic death while Congress, Senate, the Supreme Court and the I.R.S. get their act together. But the funeral pyre of burning the documents of that Law is on my Bucket List.

    I heard one comment or proposal that really has me excited. The allowance of insurers to cross state lines. The law that has kept groups from forming across state lines and presenting themselves as a large group has been an expensive rule. It remains to be seen if the law will be repealed. Its come up in the past during election cycles but always faded into the background. Insurance companies have divided the country into small pieces and been allowed to artificially inflate prices by controlling group size. With small business and 50 or less employees being the majority, this is devastating. ACA made this even worst. 5% of our revenue is spent on healthcare in supporting a healthy life for our employees. This is only our portion of support. They pay an even heftier portion.

    The second major issue in healthcare is torts. While we blame doctors, insurance companies and lawyers it keeps us off this very salient issue. I understand the issues of weeding out poor performing doctors through torts, but this only makes healthcare go up for the masses. With all the education of science of humans we have today I would think we could come up with a better way to manage quality of care.

    ACA is merely a complex set of rules to meet goals that have nothing to do with making health care affordable. The goals were to increase medicaid/care coverage and avoid all the rules that help insurance companies and lawyers make money. Take care of the commerce issues across state lines and torts and we could spin the clock back over the next ten years to affordable healthcare.

    Good stuff @Jordan Barta, lots of info to be considered. Thanks for sharing. Even Obama admits the ACA is far from perfect and would need revisions, lets hope Congress gets it right and doesn't hurt Americans more.

    Thanks for this good buzz, Jennifer. This is definitely helpful information for anyone in the HR/personnel field, or anyone else who must write a job description. Your excellent tips will definitely help folks to target and recruit the right candidates. I'm sharing this on three hives.
    I look forward to reading more buzz from you in 2017!

    Thanks @Pamela 🐝 Williams sorry you had to experience that and that it is all too common. There can definitely be a disconnect with HR and Management as well as HR being pressured to hire quickly, so they have to rush through the process and end up with a stack of resumes that don't match what they are looking for. As you shared, its a waste of the candidates time and the employer. #2

    Great post Jennifer and hopefully every HR/recruiter in the U.S. will read it! :-). Okay, that's overstating but the most off-putting experience I had during my job search dealt with a job description that had nothing to do with what was needed. Three 80 mile commutes (one way) later a senior exec finally got it right and we both realized I did not have the skill set for the job. It wasn't totally the recruiter's fault, it was the original hiring manager (no longer with the company) who didn't understand her own project and so didn't understand who she needed. It was so frustrating, especially after I had turned down to other potential positions because it was a 'sure thing'. If I found fault at all with the recruiter it's that they didn't do their homework because it was obvious within 5 minutes with the exec that they needed a full-fledged Data Scientist. So here's a question; shouldn't Technical Recruiters have a basic knowledge of the tech industry? As soon as the exec said; "data encompassing millions of transactions a day", I knew exactly what they needed.

    I started doing contract work to scope out bad employers. It's amazing how others seem to view contractors as inanimate objects and the things they'll say about not only the company but other employees. Politics are just part of a job, backstabbing, sabotaging, vendettas are another thing all together. If that is the culture a company has fostered or allowed to grow then I'll fulfill my contract and quietly move on...

    @ Tom Laine.First I agree that the reputation of any company is built on their employees personal brands.I wish that the HR would move toward integrating their active role with the org corp strategies to meet their increased need for talent ,and,also, consider strategic planning as a foundation of their planning efforts.To strengthen the employees personal brands people motivation should not be treated as a separate factor,but as a strategy translated into new selection criteria.On the other hand,most talent are very clear about what they do well and can apply their skills in a broad range of industries,and so can't depend on referrals or endorsements.They often consider them a rather high risk and passive forms of promoting their personal brands.

    I wanna tell you about one trait of character which called a good sense of humour you know yeaah?
    I think that for me a sense of humour is a very important thing.For me humor is indicator of intelligence and IQ. It doesn’t mean that you should joke every minute, but I want to know that you can do it any minute if you really want)
    Of course serious and succesful men its fundamental type of individual identity in this crazy world but a little of humour can be help to live easy and finally simple and pleasantly !

    Do you have a good sense of humour?(name)Do you like to watch comedian films,scenes with famous actors?I hope you do!
    What makes you laugh?May be some occasions in your life?Tell me some little funny moments!
    By the way I think that mostly women can’t joke, but they can evaluate joke…And they like men with a good sense of humour!
    Have a nice day,(name)Hope to hear from you soon!."

    Remember if you are spoofing the romance - put the proper bait in the water

    As bad as this is.... it is still better than most HR Departments ever manage with their ATS response emails.
