Friends.  I gotta give you the real deal.  The hook up.  I am thrilled to be the featured guest on the HRExaminer BlogTalk Radio Show:  Executive Conversations.

The Executive Conversations show will be broadcast this Friday, February 10th at 9am CST. To join in just click here.  Also, you can chat throughout the show on the twitter back-channel following #HRX.

I will join host, John Sumser, and for 30 mins we’ll talk shop.  We’ll talk about HR, Leadership, maybe we’ll throw in a little Daxko, what’s top of mind for leaders in 2017, HR and Workplace Tech, amongst other things.  We’ll probably throw in some Hamilton, Netflix, Music, who knows.

For my HR, Leadership, Culture and workplace warriors, all shows on John’s HRExaminer Radio line up are great.  For those looking for some bite-sized nuggets of info from a variety of interesting people- this is definitely a show for you.

Also, It’s broadcast over the web.  So you can listen at your desk, in the car, on your phone, wherever.  We are here to please!

Looking forward to seeing y’all then!

ALWAYS Believe Adults Mean What They Say

As HR Pros and Talent Acquisitions Specialists we have to make judgments based on information. We usually gather this information in the form of interviews (job interviews, coaching interviews, feedback surveys, etc.).

What have I learned after all these years interviewing? When an adult tells you something, you have to believe they mean it.

Here’s my story:

When I was going through a personal crisis many years ago (you know, death in family, divorce, whatever), I was in a period of believing my own spin about other adults’ intentions. I was particularly good at creating motive when someone did things questionable in public. And usually to me.

We all have a way of creating an alternate reality when the current one is simply too difficult to digest, understand, or tolerate. When I was in a phase of creating these alternate realities, a great friend of mine said, “Dawn, damn it, at some point you just have to know adults mean want they say and say what they mean.” My counselor concurred.
