Is it a business strategy or a talent strategy?, by Steve Boese, HR Technology

Last year when the annual ‘Culture Eats Strategy’ discussion flared up, (Reminder: You are supposed to repeat the phrase ‘Culture eats Strategy’ for variously breakfast/lunch/dinner/the 3:00AM run to Taco Bell over and over again, even if you don’t actually know what it means and have no real way of proving it), I offered a slightly alternative take - that ‘Talent’, or better and less jargony, ‘People’ might trump both Cullture and Strategy…

How To Pick LinkedIn Skills That Get The Attention Of Employers, by Joshua Waldman, Career Realism

6 Ways Successful People Stretch Their Comfort Zones, by Marla Tabaca, Ink.

Everyone has a so-called “comfort zone.” You know what I’m talking about: that mental space you live in where there are boundaries and you feel a sense of emotional security with your work and your decision making.

What distinguishes successful people from everyone else is what they do with their comfort zone. There are those who are perfectly happy staying warm and cozy in this safe box they’ve built; and then are those who constantly push and test the limits…

 

The 7 Keys to Mastering the 360-Degree Performance Review, by Laura Stack, TLNT

We’ve all undergone job performance reviews.
