DAWG Talk: The Reality of Perception

Two professionals go to a networking event. They’re buddies, so they plan to go together. Even though they’re friends they have very different approaches.



They arrive and Friend One, eager to meet as many people as he can, rushes in and walks directly to the center of all the activity. He’s well dressed and prepared to be remembered by as many people as possible.



Friend Two, also dressed professionally and prepared to be remembered, takes a different approach. He walks… Continue

DAWG Talk: Who's Interviewing Who?

In my line of business, it’s not uncommon to hear horror stories. Stories about candidates who have, let’s just say, approached the interview process the wrong way.

What is, perhaps, less talked about is the poor… Continue

Before you make that job offer answer this one question.

Just got off of the phone with someone with over 30 years of HR experience in the world of Convenience Retailing, we use to call this segment Convenience Stores. We were swapping some ideas when she said one of the questions she always ask manager when they hire someone "Is this someone you would be willing to take home for dinner?" If the answer is NO why would you hire them to take care of your customers?

Street Smart Psychology. Basics for a New Interviewer.

Neuro Linguistic Programming, one of my favorite subjects with a stupid name. I never understood why a topic that’s all about communication uses language no one freaking understands? I just call it ‘Street Smart Psychology’. One of the biggest principles that hit home during my ‘Street Smart Psychology classes was, “the response you elicit is a result of your communication”. This is totally true especially when it comes to interviewing.



A Manager in the interview class I was teaching… Continue

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
