Seems I’m doing more podcasts than writing lately. I think it’s because I’ve been writing for almost 10 years about engagement, rewards, incentives, recognition and just about anything connected to influencing behavior in an organization. It gets tough to continue to find new things to say. It’s almost as tough as seeing someone write a doppelganger post on a subject you wrote 5 years ago that gets high praise and all it really does is confirm no one read your post.
Which is one reason I started the whole podcast thing – to break up the monotony on my end and give you all something new and different. And it is going extremely well. I love connecting with friends and people I didn’t know before the podcast (and who are now friends.) And the conversations have been enlightening and fun.
For those who haven’t seen the original post, my podcast features volunteers who want to talk about things they wish they had known earlier in their careers that might have made a difference in their career choice, their job search, their overall approach to paying their bills. The input from the guests has been great: networking, creating your own job and now – with friend Charlie Judy – the idea of not getting locked into the idea that you need to simply find a job – but you can look more broadly and find a career.
Charlie is an HR pro with a great pedigree… known on the twitters as @HRFishbowl, Charlie has had an impressive career in HR and consulting working with companies such as Deloitte, Navigant, Baker Tilly and more. His career had him moving all over the country and the globe included stints in Brussels, Belgium, and Hyderabad, India.
Now he’s working hard to help companies find and leverage their unique culture through his new company called WorkXO.
We touch on some of that in the podcast so give it a listen and if you want to be on the “radio” with feel free to connect via my quick little google form and we’ll set it up. Apologies for the sound quality on my end. Audio is a bit blown out.
