Blind Wisemen

On November 30, 2010, in HRExaminer, John Sumser, by John Sumser
I like to use the parable of the six blind wise Men to illuminate the variety of opinions available on a single topic. Proximity to the problem often befuddles the judgment. Anyhow, someone was kind enough to forward this version. It’s useful to keep a copy handy. It is particularly useful when examining the opinions […]

Savvy employees understand that engagement is a code word for “No raises this year.” That’s because an engaged workforce is less motivated by money and more motivated by the pure joy of work. Which accounts for the sky-rocketing level of executive comp. Engagement deserves clearer thought than it is currently getting. Here are five links to move the conversation forward.

I recently received a piece of email for a sourcing conference that teaches people how to find passive candidates. Tired of debunking this ridiculous notion, I went out to lunch at a local pub in search of a physical unit. After looking high and low, I realized that passive candidates probably all bring their lunch […]
