The Future of Work
If you know how to get stuff done and lead a project team it may not be enough for you to become, or be perceived, as a leader. Managers tend to be task focused, while leaders are human-centered focused requiring a different skills sets: emotional and intuitive intelligence, motivating others, and turning what others may see as conflict and hindrances into opportunities.
STEM professionals are highly educated, effective, motivated, and ambitious people, who work hard to achieve success, yet are frequently frustrated and stuck by what I call “the get it done” dilemma. Those who get it done are passed over or do not create new opportunities for themselves because they are not perceived as “strategic” or “people persons”. Read on to see how to rethink what it means for a manager to become a leader.
Today’s recruiting trends (that include companies bringing back their outsourced manufacturing to the US) puts more pressure on sourcing. In this blog, Beth McCormick from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory argues that now is the time to focus on developing or expanding partnerships between companies and community college. These partnerships, given the time and resources, can become a significant source of quality candidates.
HR author and consultant Suzanne Benoit describes the rising trend of hate-based incidents and various employer response options to mitigate the polarizing impact of those incidents.
