This has been a rather quiet year. No crazy CEO saying something audacious, no groundbreaking/ gossip-worthy HR breakthroughs nor any organization doing anything questionable (OK – this may not be true). Either the world of HR has gone quiet or I am revolving outside the loop. I would like to believe it is the former. … Continue reading Nothing new under the sun
I recently wrote a post on ‘5 YEARS LATER: WHAT WILL HR LOOK LIKE?’ At the time of review with my editor, he referred to a recent round table where one of the speakers had commented, "We are always speaking about the next 5 years...but how about the next 20 years; no-one is speaking about … Continue reading The danger of looking too far ahead
I am a big fan of experience. I think it holds innumerable lessons and deserves to be chased after like a thief in the dark. I also believe that number of years is an extremely poor indicator of experience. One could fit in a variety of experiences into a single year and another could live … Continue reading Too little experience

Do these ideas die because they aren’t good? Of, course not. With proper nurturing, they could bloom into miracles. However, if exposed to the world before they’ve found the feet to stand on, it is likely that the ‘devil’s advocates’ and naysayers nip the idea at its bud. What then should we do with these buds of an idea? Like premature babies, they deserve to go into an incubator.

Even if you haven’t heard of Tom, you’ve definitely heard of the organization he works with – Ideo. I will likely do a full-fledged book review later this month, but no amount of words will do the book justice. … Continue reading 31 day challenge: Turn up with more than ‘one’
