I actually read tiger mother and have applied those lessons to managing my cats. I like people who have backbones. Who are principled. Who aren't lazy. I don't like tyrants.

Yeah, uh, what if your employees can't have babies? You wanna have that conversation? Especially if they've tried all kinds of methods and they've recently given up? Because it gets awkward pretty quickly.

So excited, Kris. Might I suggest the Humpty Dance as your theme song? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cj9_yW8tZxs

Safety first. Nuanced language and sarcasm second.

I'm not sure I would call him a high performing CEO.

So, why did I change my philosophy on using recruiting agencies? Did you really just ask this question and invite me to answer it for you? :)

Written english/spoken english don't match up. I prefer to write like I speak. I can't tell you how many readers say that they can hear my voice when they read my blog. I love that.

You are an American hero. Also, I totally support the science/research. As long as you don't give me a sports angle and talk about the Miami Heat, I'm cool with this. You're educating recruiters. Someone needs to educate job seekers on the tools of the future. Who's gonna do that? Me? I'm too busy with my cats.

Okay. Let's pretend I'm a candidate. Am I really gonna get a job? That's all I care about. Gerry Crispin's annual report (still) tells me that a majority of people find work through career websites and job boards. When does that shift to conversations & whatnot via social tools? 2010? 2011?

I learned something from HRM Today: just give me quality content. I am my own social network.

I think people confuse supervise and manage due to consultantspeak. Manager = fancy. Supervise = down & dirty. Good post.

I hear you can get a nice, three-hour massage off Route 59 near Trussville.

PS - You know most of those HR ladies rocked the comfy underwear. Signature HR attire, yo. Just like the french manicure and Coach bags.

Tim, speaker proposals are due ASAP. July 9th, I think. You can talk to @stelzner and he has the process down cold, I think. The issue for me on speaking is two-fold: they don't pay their concurrent session speakers, and I have nothing to sell to justify the time/expense. Last year, I spoke at the first social media panel. This year, I spoke to students and SHRM volunteers. My expenses were covered. Those endeavors makes more sense for me than running a concurrent session on social HR practices and trying to determine my ROI. Speaking to volunteers & students? Personal satisfaction of doing charitable work. Speaking to practitioner/attendees with a hangover and too much swag in their roller bags? I dunno, dude. Not for me.

Wait, do you write anymore or just steal my content?! Miss you, buddy. Enjoy the tarballs.

I might like my STFU noob picture better -- but not much. This one is good, too.

In general, I hate how we equate health and size. There's so much we don't know about what it means to be healthy & fit. What we think we know v. what we really know are two different things. What's worse is that the free market has run amok and caused us to throw capitalism into the mix of health & size. It's a mess. Our language often incorporates lookism & sexism in a discussion around size, appearance, and health. That being said, human beings are born AND trained to discriminate. We use sight, and maybe intuition, to figure out if a situation is safe or dangerous. We use our sense of smell to figure out if food is rotten or just eccentric and different. It's tough to turn off our brain, and sometimes our brain gets in the way of really good decisions. We're not as good at being objective as we think we are.
