Big data: HR needs to stop reporting and start predicting, by Michael Carty in Personnel Today

Big data offers HR some major opportunities to increase its strategic influence within the organisation and add value to its processes at all levels, by delivering predictive analytics. Big data might seem like an HR buzzword, but it is one that will not go away – and one that HR should not ignore. The phrase refers to the huge volumes of data being generated in the modern world, and how we use it. Helping HR use big data to its advantage was the topic of a recent webinar from US blog Fistful of Talent, hosted by HR tech bloggers Steve Boese and Kris Dunn…

Understanding The Value Of Charisma In Leadership, by Tanveer Naseer in his blog

Last week, I had the pleasure of giving the keynote speech at the 2014 NAED LEAD Conference held in Chicago. Given how the focus of my speech was examining the role of charisma in leadership and how we can develop this trait to inspire and engage our employees, it would seem almost natural that the locale for this keynote was this elegant, almost regal ballroom located in one of the illustrious hotels found along Chicago’s “Magnificent Mile”…

Why Your Job Should Make You Uncomfortable, by Steve Errey in The Muse

There’s a guy I know who’s simply amazing at his job. He’s an executive level creative at a global marketing agency, and besides being great to work with, he has an eye for visual design that’s pretty much unparalleled. He rocks it every single time. But he’s also terrified most of the time; he told me as much. As good as he is, and as good as he’s proven himself to be, he’s scared that the next project will go spectacularly wrong or that it won’t be beautiful in the ways he knows it can be. How can he be so good at what he does and still be so scared?...
