To All Business Owners & Leaders: An Official Apology
First, I want to start off by saying,"I apologize." That's right..I apologize on behalf of all human performance industries as a whole, but more specifically on behalf of the collective Human Resources industry.
Usually apologizes come when there are wrongs committed -- knowingly or when made aware of. I can honestly say, you as a business leader have been wronged. We as an HR community have been of disservice to you.
It's not that we aren't trying. doing our best, or consciously withholding. We are one of the most caring, committed professionals you'll find! I believe our community is doing the best it can. Regrettably, it's not enough. It's not enough for what you need to manage and grow your businesses with strategic, fiscal responsibility. Continue reading...

The human element or human performance is commonly overlooked in considering profitable improvements. Read on...
I recently had a conversation with the president of an organization regarding a key leader that has gone rogue. Yep, in her mischief, this leader has created mistrust, issued threats, bullied colleagues and generated a palpable fear of retaliation rippling throughout the organization. It's compounded by the fact, (I'm sadden to say), it the Human Resource manager!
In learning more, it's became clear that this has been occurring for quite sometime and in fact, a reputation for the harmful behavior had developed.
Many of you reading are probably thinking... and she is still employed?....allowed to behave that way?....why? Exactly! Read on...
It's been nothing short of overwhelming immersing myself in the dilemma and revelations of sexual harassment revealations in the media. It's a different way to spend my time as I'm usually helping clients in a positive way as they work to implement meaningful solutions. Yet, this is a social watershed moment that in my field and on a personal level I cannot ignore.
