    What makes selecting an outsourcing partner difficult is that most outsourcing companies claim similar capabilities and experience. So, how do you find just the right partner for your business? Start by taking an inventory of your needs and placing parameters that will let you narrow your search. http://bit.ly/2jUE3AP Johnathan Jones

    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

    This seem to indicate that the human resources system is broken. What is creating this bad review of human resources is their entanglement or "nuptial" engagement with management. That association will never yield the best talented workers and work force organizations need. Corporate Offices need to start paying attention to such a dilemma.

    Hi John

    Thanks for commenting. I agree that far to much money is spent on leadership programs that add very little value for the sole reason that as you said the wrong people are put onto leadershi roles in the first place. There needs to be a fundamental rethink on how we view talent mgt and leadership because current programs are tied to outdated compensation programs. By this i mean all large companies try to fit promotions and hiring into compensation programs that are not a good place to start. That is if they have a talented person they want to hire or promote internally the driving factor is always compensation and frameworks that believe you can only pay or promote someone if their role is a certain size which usually means assigning them a team. Rather than looking at the contribution the person makes as an individual and paying them accordingly without having to put them in charge of a team

    I have seen this in every company i have worked in. People being hired or promoted into leadership roles even though its known they are poor leaders simply because the compensation plan says the only way to do it is to give them a team. Until that mindset changes then nothing will change from a leadership perspective#3

    Jane, this is a topic that's close to my heart, albeit, very frustrating. Here are some things for you to consider and I'd appreciate your response, this is the most misunderstood aspect of business. Let's start with my first premise, just because your called a leader or you're in a leadership position, that doesn't make you a leader, it makes you someone whose called a leader, a big difference. Then their's the most prevalent argument, nature vs nurture, this is really the crux of the entire premise. People are usually equally divided or they'll suggest it's a bit of both. Here's my perspective and let me begin with the data. Billions of dollars are spent every year on leadership programs, if you consider the investment and the fact that there's little impact, that is telling, at least in my mind.
    Now let's go to the number of articles written on leadership, well over 10,000 and the variety of approaches and assumptions made, it's so wide and broad that it's mind boggling on the best of days. Then let's defer to nature, when we look at social groups in the animal kingdom, do we believe that every member of a pack can be a leader, no, that's never the case. Next, let's ask ourselves this question, if everyone could be a leader, what would the value of being a leader really be, it's no different than saying, we can all cook like Martha or golf like Tiger, no we can't and if we could, what would be the value.
    What makes human being's interesting is there complexity, yet we want to believe that we understand this complexity and the truth is we really don't, I'd argue that we don't even have a clue.

    like to be treated as well, honestly, with enthusiasm, and tried to motivate and inspire them along the way.

    Regarding the questions about your weaknesses, as you say, having them is ok. In order to give a good interview it is good to say a weakness, but be creative and original, in that way you will still show that you are competitive even when you are not exactly talking about your best qualities. For example: a lot of people still answer that one of their weaknesses is being a perfectionist or working too hard. Just be original and come up with a creative idea to describe how you are going to work on your weakness so it can become a strength. Great buzz @Rafi Chowdhury

    @Dean Owen - The nominal claim is that your post is distributed into the feed of your connections, but may not be seen as it is pushed down by other posts, if the connections is not online at the time or close to it. However, the reality diverges significantly from that claim more than 85% of the time, as explained in print by LI systems engineering manager Byron Ma. In fact, the Algorithm throttles down distribution based on ITS assessment of who are "strong" connections, and so distribute your posts to the feeds of less that 15% of your connections. LI rationalizes this choking down on the basis that members complain of their feeds being too jammed by posts from connections. The irony of this is that, if the purported complaints are real to any significant level (which I question), the people complaining are those who connect willy nilly or who want to connect so that they can send you solicitations and sales pitches, not receive anything from you. Thus, LI distribution protocols are being driven by the preferences of spammers. LI also claims it distributes your posts 100% to your followers, but repeated careful observation by indie writers brings that claim into serious question, as well. Which is why, as you point out, many indie writers have moved their base of operations over to beBee, where distribution to self-designated "followers" is 100%, 100% of the time. I have suggested that all social media platforms, including LI, adopt this structure for interactions among members: https://www.bebee.com/producer/@phil-friedman/time-to-break-all-connections-on-social-media. Cheers!

    #13 LinkedIn distribute your posts to only 8-15% of your followers, based on its algorithm. This will never happen on beBee. You will always reach 100% of your followers. Why ? Because we think that they will stop following you if you send spam or poor content or irrelevant content. I think it is the right way. We will never limit it.
    Dean Owen
    11/06/2016 #15 Dean Owen
    LinkedIn is an odd beast and we can only guess at their motives. I suspect they assume there is more money to be made from recruitment and sponsored ads and thus are restricting peoples ability to market freely their products. But if I understand correctly, your post does appear on everyone of your connections timeline, and obviously they will miss it if they are not on at the right time. But the decision to throttle notifications was due to complaints of too many notifications. Notifications also have a short lifespan don't they? So they disappear if you don't open them. It does seem they have increased the emailed newsletter frequency. A balancing act they are getting wrong yes, but that's why we are here!

    @Dean Owen, I understand your point. But if Netflix makes suggestions to me based on what it perceives my preferences to be, that is one thing. Because if I am not satisfied with the suggestions, I can opt to access the rest of the database. But if, for example, LinkedIn chooses to distribute my posts to only 15% of my followers, based on its algorithm which decides that the 85% remaining don't really want to see them, that is another matter. Unless, of course, you know of a switch in my settings to prevent that algorithmic filtering from occurring on my incoming notifications. ??? Control of what I can see and can see is minds

    #11 I get you @Phil Friedman, but recruitment, retail, social media, the discussion is the same. It is about having relevant candidates, products, content there on your screen when you log on. Certainly the whole database is still available for you to search. If I had purchased a couple of gangster movies on Flixster, and the next time I visit the site, on the front page there is the latest gangster movie, great! Doesn't stop me from also hitting other tabs and seeing what is on offer. Likewise if I have hidden some articles on Facebook, and the Facebook also decides to show me less of those type articles and more of the type I have liked, great! It is not a perfect system, but it will get better and better. We are time strapped. Algorithms offer us the option of a clutter free experience. Good discussion!

    #10 @Dean Owen, thank you for reading and commenting, and for the kind words. With all due respect, however, I have to point out that the use of an algorithm by a marketer or advertiser to tailor what is offered to you based on your expressed interests is not what I am talking about. Nor am I referring to the use of an algorithm by a firm such as Home Depot to show you what is in stock in a local warehouse store near you. Consider, instead how you would feel is Google used an algorithm to decide to show you only some results of your search, not by relevance, but selected by how its judgement of your intellectual ability to understand the items. Or what if a firm like Flixster decided that it knew better what movies you would like, and so failed to show you all the movies at theaters in your area, but only those it deemed appropriate for you, never mind the search parameters you entered. The difference is between serving your expressed preferences and over-riding them based on an algorithm that, in the final analysis, is only a dumb sorting tree based on a two-value (binary) logic, which is completely inadequate to capturing the nuances of Human Intelligence and selection which operate in a multi-value logic. Cheers!

    Granted perhaps that the technology is not up to speed, but I am not so cynical of algorithms in our lives. Imagine that you could visit an online department store that displays products tailored according to your tastes, your size, your colour preferences. At some stage, the technology will be advanced enough to optimise our online experience by showing us content that is hugely relevant. For example, I have absolutely no interest in being marketed health and fitness products or French cars or brown clothes, or a cool pair of shoes but without my size in stock. I am sure our online experience right now is better than if Google or Facebook didn't employ algorithms.Yes sometimes they get it wrong. But at least the banner ads we see are sometimes relevant. Not a fan of current ATS, but eventually systems will be able to deduce that someone was a marine and is looking for military related jobs, and not jobs tagging sea turtles.

    Dear @Phil Friedman, You know my attitude about algorithm in any type of social media. Writing and publishing in social networks is more like transparent teaching and completely free mutual shaping of perception (without algorithmic control), rather than highly selective promotion, self-promotion, manipulation with exposure, influencer marketing or activism of an artificial, selective, highly manipulative and dehumanized algorithm. The algorithm control will be remembered as a dark age of social media.

    When I managed a telemarketing agency, we often needed large numbers of staff for temporary roles. There simply wasn't time or budget to gives someone 2-3 weeks to settle in, they'd need to be on target within 2-3 days. I therefore had to test their confidence and ability to cope when thrown in at the deep end.

    At interview, I'd tell them they were a waitress and I was a customer who asked for their advice on what to eat - sell me lasagne! (Bearing in mind this was for a TELESALES role, where candidates would be expected to do lead generation calls at Director level for clients like IBM and Microsoft).

    You'd be amazed at the responses from supposedly well-qualified candidates, which included: "errr I've never worked in catering." "I'm not really good at selling things" and the ultimate "I didn't think you'd ask me to sell anything, it's really hard." I didn't think it was an especially tough question, but most of them said it was the toughest question they'd ever been asked.

And most could not articulate concisely the company business. Yes there are exceptions, but very rare.

    People should really stop hating HR team and start noticing that sometimes some good things that happens with contract terms or development on integration activities are also because of them. Of course, there's always something to learn from each other I think it is both ways. For example HR can learn from Finance team the economical conditions of the company and try to relate it to what they do.

    Moving jobs is usually not a casual decision. You should take some time to review your past performance and define the sales culture that is the best fit for you and your skills, as well as inventory the things you would like to learn in your next venture.

    This is what makes Werner Erhard so compelling a thinker - those of us who appreciate his way can think with him rather than simply read him. That is what makes us wiser, brighter, sharper and more alive at a personal level. I take time to be the rhythm, the flow and the cycle of our own life - for we are in movement just as the Earth is and how the Earth is in its own body of movement i.e the Sun, and then beyond where we don't know the movement beyond this universe. Peter Sapper thinks this is the best two minutes of Werner Erhard https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NIUuPscUiT8 A 2 minute serving is a nice appetizer but personally I can't eat time, but I can take time to eat. I am not here to convince people that Werner Erhard is brilliant, I know he is - but for all the brilliance in the world we human beings still need to build a power plant because we don't know how to make the Sun work - the ultimate source of this Earth's brilliance is still a source of power that defines time - until now it has been a worship of time of a Sun God, as we move forward it is an acceptance of time as a life source - and in that much brilliance is still to be discovered, and this means we are at the beginning of a this life evolution, though not at all at the end of treating time as a deity.

    Where IoT is important isn't in your refrigerator...that is just an example put out there for the distractors. Where it is important is in industrial machines like PLCs, valves, switches, counters, scales and gauges....in order to bring real time analytics to the business to increase efficiencies. There will however be connectivity in appliances ...my washing machine already has one, (not connected) to report on maintenance and warrantee information....and to connect when it is broken to analyze the problem...just like the one in cars.

    The only thing I see the Internet of Things disrupting is everyone's lives, and not in a good way. Do we *really* need to have *everything* we own connected to the Internet? My fridge doesn't need to be. What, so it can email me when the milk's expired? I can't check the date myself? (Okay, it might have been helpful this week when I discovered an old milk carton hidden in the back. I've been putting off dumping it down the sink. If the IoT can remove my milk carton and dispose of its contents without smelling up my kitchen, then I'll listen.) I don't need my watch connected, my clothes, my glasses, or my cat. (He'd probably spend any time I'm not here downloading kitty porn.) We can't even keep our bank accounts safe from hackers, and I'm supposed to open up the rest of my life to pimply-faced virgins in eastern Europe and perpetually pissed-off terrorist Daeshbags in the Middle East?

    "Emotions and interpersonal relationships, encompass more directly our values, our ideals, our identities and our ethics." Excellent point...Awareness of our emotions allows us to perceive the intentions behind them...This translates to a "conscious discrepancy" when dealing with challenging situations or interactions with others. When we are "tuned in" to the state of our being we can respond in accordance with our experiences rather than just reacting to them...Thank you for a very enlightening post Emilia M. Ludovino;-)

    #3 Dear Pamela L. Williams - Actually, Emotional Intelligence is helping Leaders to become more "Human" by teaching them how to connect and recognized their emotions. It;s not an easy process for a lot of them - because during the training they need to deal with buried feelings and emotions. There is more to EI. Maybe you like to discover what we Emotional Intelligence Coaches are teaching to their coachees, in my book. Grateful that you time to read my buzz and leave your opinion :). Have a blessed day!.

Awareness of others emotions it's also very important for our own sake - that's why in my book I teach how to enhance them and the importance for every "mortal" to assess and actively develop their EI skills.

    This 'Dark Side of Emotional Intelligence' is exactly why I find the concept disturbing. It is accepted that Command and Control management tactics are antiquated and actually limit a productive atmosphere. Have we however replace C&C with M&C; Manipulate and Coerce? Is it emotionally intelligent to utilize stone faced management tactics? Is not that lack of emotion in social interaction what Hollywood would describe as psychopathic behavior, whereas the clinical terminology is antisocial personality disorder.. According to World of Psychology these are the traits of a psychopath. Psychopaths, in general, have a hard time forming real emotional attachments with others. Instead, they form artificial, shallow relationships designed to be manipulated in a way that most benefits the psychopath. People are seen as pawns to be used to forward the psychopath’s goals. Psychopaths rarely feel guilt regarding any of their behaviors, no matter how much they hurt others.

    But psychopaths can often be seen by others as being charming and trustworthy, holding steady, normal jobs. Some even have families and seemingly-loving relationships with a partner. While they tend to be well-educated, they may also have learned a great deal on their own.

    When a psychopath engages in [this] behavior, they tend to do so in a way that minimizes risk to themselves. They will carefully plan [activity]to ensure they don’t get caught, having contingency plans in place for every possibility.

    Are we training leaders to be psychopaths? Which is actually a genetic disorder so such training is actually an environmental development of the disorder and becomes a sociopathic personality disorder. ----Just this person's opinion, but something to think about

    Well, I think that if you are already customizing something like a cover letter (or even if you don't write one) sometimes there are aspects on each person's resume that should be customized depending on the profile that the company needs. I mean, not lying of course, but making some of your qualities that fit the job more visible than others and taking out irrelevant (for that company specifically) ones. What do you think @Anders Liu-Lindberg?
