People can’t handle critical feedback, unless it’s set up in a mechanism where they expect it and desire it.  That’s the crux, hardly anyone has that mechanism […]

You hire generics. That’s okay, generics are just like top brands, right?  I’ve tried generic drugs and name brand […]

3 Things You Should Say When Resigning

I have people ask me to help them write a resignation letter – which is a little funny because it really doesn’t matter what you write – only two things are going to happen: 1. They’ll freak out that you are leaving and try and talk you out it. 2. They’ll go “Oh, that’s too […]

Better Employee Relocation Design in 4 Easy Steps!

I have to admit I’ve been one of those HR Pros who has had to design and develop relocation policies a few times in my career.  My philosophy on relocation has changed somewhat over the years.
