Welcome to the new HR carnival, returning to Strategic HCM for the sixth time, and featuring a great mix of HR blogs from around the world including Malaysia, India and Abu Dhabi, as well as the UK and the US (where I currently am, having just driven up from a technology vendor’s meeting in Fort Myers to the Bersin Impact conference in St Petersburg).
We’ll start with eleven posts focusing on leadership and individual effectiveness, a number of which have a particular focus on the requirements to be an effective HR practitioner.
There’s also a repeated focus here on the need for people to keep themselves fed with new knowledge, hence the theme I have extracted for this carnival, and which I guess is what the HR carnival is all about – feeding vs obsolescence:
- Sandrine Bardot, Compensation Insider, Spring Cleaning : 4 tips to declutter your work
- Ian Welsh, The Search for Mutual Success, Reconciling Emotional Intelligence with Organizational Reality
- Jennifer V. Miller, The People Equation, How Saying No Elevates Your Integrity
- Dan McCarthy, Great Leadership, 5 Myths about Giving Praise
- Jesse Stoner, Charismatic Leaders vs Visionary Leaders: 7 Indicators
- Lynn Dessert, Elephants at Work, How to Deal with the Bully Boss
- Patrick Mullarkey, Mentoring Mullarkey, What you going to do when Hulkamania goes all professional development on you?!?!.
- Ben Martinez, HR Hound on a Coffee Buzz, How To Be An HR Dumb Expert. Know Your Enemy
- Tim Gardner, The HR Introvert, Electric Human Resources – The “I” In Current
- John Hunter, Curious Cat, Continual Feeding
- Mike Haberman, Obsolescence will eat your lunch.
We’re then onto eight more posts on what HR actually needs to do to be effective, including recruiting, learning, talent management, and the use of employee surveys and metrics:
- Paul Smith, Welcome To The Occupation, 10 Human Questions Interviewees Should Ask
- Gautam Ghosh, Talent and Social Business, Social Recruiting presentation at social media conference #IndiaSocial12
- Trish McFarlane, HR Ringleader, 5 keys to more successful collaborative learning
- Gireesh Sharma, Learn to Succeed, Don’t attempt to convert e-Learning to m-Learning – they’re different
- Jon Ingham, Strategic HCM, The Truth About Talent
- Wally Bock, Results vs. Activities, Talent Management: the Important Questions
- Hannah Stratford, HR Means Business, Employee surveys to come full circle
- Naomi Bloom, In Full Bloom, Reprise — The Road From HRM To Business Results Is Littered With Misguided Metrics.
I hope you enjoy the posts, and thanks to all contributors. More information about future carnivals can be found here.
I’ll be blogging from the Bersin conference later on today, and tomorrow as well, and continuing my series on challenges and opportunities for talent managers on Friday and into next week…
