I posted a couple months back that I wanted to start talking to people about advice they wished they’d received early in the career. Advice that had the potential to change the trajectory of a career. I’m not talking about “don’t where brown shoes with a black suit” type of advice – I’m talking about advice with impact. Advice you would give to the next generation of professionals. I positioned it as the type of advice you’d give your children.

I wished someone had told me that title and age is not indicative of intelligence. Too often I’d just go along with ideas from VPs that I knew were bad but figured they had the title and the time so they must be right. They weren’t many, many times.

I put up a form for those that may want to be interviewed… and I got a hit!

Michael Moon jumped on the podcast and gave me her “wish I’d known” advice.

Michael is a talented HR, Analytics, and HR technology expert with a Ph.D. She runs her own company helping companies with HR metrics and analytics, social network analysis, employee engagement, and advanced statistical analysis. Michael is a highly sought out speaker, recently speaking at HR & Workforce Analytics Innovation Summit, the 18th Annual HR Technology Conference and the Senior Care HR Innovation Network Engagement Summit. She also has an upcoming engagement on Dec. 4 – Diversity Best Practices, New York – “Learning & Development for Maximum D&I Impact”

Busy. Busy.

But not too busy to chat with me.
