Business Leaders in Glorious Transition

The entire world is in transition: Business must transition, too.

Here, you'll read contributions of my friends, other business professionals who are working to turn from their Mechanical Business Models to ever more profitable Organic Business Models.

You'll read their successes as well as their difficulties in making the transition from the hierarchical, control based practices characteristic of most of our years in business. You'll see how wonderfully profitable companies can be when they learn to tap the powerful creative energy of employees.

You Want Recognition? Stop Doing Non-Core Activities

In the business world, it's almost impossible for good in-house Human Resource Professionals to get any respect.

It isn't surprising, though. The "respect-givers" (The Business Groups) have a lot to learn about the "people" side of business.

But, in defense of The Business Group, the "respect-needers" (The HR Group) have a lot to learn about how their work actually impacts the business.

Watch this gem. Each of these "starry- eyed," HR wanna-bes tells exactly what you HR professionals know to be the case in your company.

This is very funny, and most telling.


The things these kids say are exactly the reason that professional HR careers will be best built through the outsourcing model. As we tend to think today, the only way a vital HR professional will ever experience the appreciation and promotion they deserve will be working with an outsourcing HR company. Only these companies with HR as a core business will ever really value and promote people with these specialties.

It's like somebody really noticed.
