You probably saw the title and though “nah, I’m good” but trust me…it’s worth the read. The first month of 2017 has already passed us by and the older I get, the more I realize that time really waits for no man. Time doesn’t hear you saying “I’ll do better next week, next month, next year”. Time keeps moving whether you move with it or not. Fellas, life is all about the choices we make with the time we’ve been given and because none of us are going to live forever, we have to
Your brand identity as an organization is your fingerprint. It uniquely decodes who you are, what you do, and why you do it. It plays a role in who you hire and how you retain them. Do you allow your identity to be the foundation of your job postings and how you fill your positions? Organizations miss the mark on this and end up recruiting those individuals that are not a fit for their organization. The way, and the place, their job postings are listed should be a direct refl
Becoming a man is a lifelong process. It doesn’t have an endpoint on this side of Heaven. That’s not to discourage you, it’s to give you hope. It’s never too late to get started because we all have a journey ahead of us. You can’t make progress on something that you never get started on.
Manhood is not for the faint of heart. It’s for those who are ready to step up to the challenge of leadership and service. It’s deciding to put the needs of your family before yours. But for
How do we help those who don’t think they need to be helped? Men are given free reign and the rights to continue being boys because there is no pressure from anyone to “man up”. Back in the day, our mothers forced us to be gentlemen and our fathers were that example of what a gentleman did. Even if he didn’t have it figured out entirely, he would try his best to do what he thought would work. Now, times have changed because what is acceptable has deteriorated. Culture seems t
With unemployment rates continuing to be at their lowest in decades, that means that there are more opportunities than qualified applicants available. Job seekers are able to weigh their options and determine what employer best suits their needs. For job seekers, that’s GREAT news but if you’re one of those employers that don’t suit their needs that’s TERRIBLE news for you. Step 1 is in recruiting good talent but step 2 is in hiring that talent to become part of your workforc
Being a man is becoming unpopular. That might be hard to believe because it seems like there are men everywhere. But that’s not true. The male species is not declining but those who go from boys to men is drastically decreasing. Men are no longer encouraged to take responsibility for the choices they make, the children they father, and the women they claim to love. Now, there are more and more messages that tell boys to stay boys: forget about your wife, you can have a mistre
The introduction of the Internet, the information super highway, social media, and digital downloads have changed the way most organizations do business today. Boardroom conversations center around cyber security, electronic records, and password protection. We’ve guarded our organizations against viruses, Trojan Horses, and virtual scams but what have we done to change the culture of our organizations? What steps have we taken to ensure our staff or adapting to all of the me
