Engaging Socially in 2015

I joined LinkedIn back in 2004. I joined Twitter (@changecontinuum) in 2008. The company website (www.changecontinuum.com) went live early 2010. I also started blogging on Blogger in 2010 but I hated what I wrote, deleted it all and restarted in January 2011. A couple of years later I shifted from Blogger to this WordPress site. Over time, I’ve looked … Continue reading

Where do you discuss blog posts?

You may have read my recent post “No Comment Here… Let’s Discuss Elsewhere” over on my other blog at Passle. In it I shared my thoughts about the changing dynamics I see on blog comments. For me, most of my discussion about other peoples blog posts tends to be either over on Twitter or just when I … Continue reading

Change Advocacy

Who advocates change in your organisation? How do they advocate it? Who do they advocate it to? All important Change Leadership questions but just as important if not more so is the question of what impact is that advocacy having? After all, the purpose of advocacy is to build authentic support for the change(s) you … Continue reading

The Business of White Noise

Business… trade or profession; commercial activity. White Noise… random talk without meaningful content. Look… I can see you do superficial really well. Your frenetic Twitter timeline shows the broad shallowness of your sharing. The lack of meaningful dialogue and your constant affirmation that all things are cool, great, fab, groovy…. LOL…  just confirms this superficiality. I know… … Continue reading

A little story for Chinese New Year

Today is Chinese New Year and the year of the snake. I have to confess that my awareness of Chinese New Year was pretty low until the children studied it at school.  That New Year phrase “Kung Hei Fat Choi” (wishing you prosperity?) was what they brought back from school, along with banners & lanterns … Continue reading

Learning Dialogue

It doesn’t seem like it’s only 1 week ago that we were kicking off the 2nd L&D Connect Unconference (#ldcu)… If you missed it there’s a Storify you can read and my good friend Sukh Pabial (@sukhpabial) wrote a pretty comprehensive piece here with links to other post-LDCU blogs. For reference, I wrote the post … Continue reading

Does your HR make a Sis-Boom-Bah?

It’s fireworks night and all around the skies are starting to fill with the whizz & crackle of tonight’s celebrations here in the UK.  OK, lots of the major displays have been going on all weekend for convenience sakes but tonight is the night. Later this week Doug Shaw is hosting The Carnival of HR … Continue reading

Not feeling the love?

Sometimes we put a lot of effort into building a relationship…. Good faith.  Positive regard.  Active interest.  Support.  The outstretched hand of friendship. But sometimes it’s one way…  Wrong time.  Wrong person.  Wrong assumptions. And sometimes it’s for the wrong reason… Celebrity.  Reciprocity.  Self interest. Often we don’t know why the relationship isn’t meeting our … Continue reading

My word is my bond

So what’s your reputation?  The chances are that as you think about that question you try to see yourself through the eyes of others… your clients, your peers, colleagues, community, possibly even friends and family. So let’s say you have a great reputation as an HR Blogger.  Perhaps it’s your job… The chances are that … Continue reading

What do you do?

“What do you do?” – You have to admit that as a question it’s actually quite pathetic isn’t it? Think about all the things that you do. Those you enjoy most. Those impact your life most. Those that define you. Of course we’re more familiar with trying to justify our existence answer with our work … Continue reading
