The HR Juggler

Posts Tagged ‘Collaboration

Blogging energises me. For me, there is a definite correlation between my general sense of personal and professional well-being and how inclined I feel to write on my blog.

Lately I have a minor case of blogger’s block, so in true Twitter style I asked for inspiration from the good people of #connectinghr. And as usual they rose to the occasion and unleashed a wave of ideas. Thanks to @MattWarrener, @SpeccyWoo, @BettyBBlonde and @ChangeContinuum, they provided the following eclectic inspirations –

– Why is HR the brake and not the accelerator and how does it need to change?

– Training has absolutely no ROI other than as a placebo

– HR is a band-aid to imperfect organisations and they are minded to keep them that way

– Why are HR the worst people managers of all?

– If you had to axe one function in your business which one would it be?

– Why don’t more execs blog?

– The morals of being forced to interview someone because of the colour of their skin

– Which members of Take That were better looking in 2004 and in 2011?

All of these got me thinking: about the topics themselves, the creativity of those individuals providing them and more than anything else about the power of collaboration to inspire and lift you out of a temporary rut.

So, as of next week I am going to undertake a blogging experiment and tackle one of these each day to write about. Please also feel free to contribute any other suggested topics in the comments below, however frivolous or intellectually challenging (!!) and they will also go into the mix. Once I work out the wordpress voting widget, I will also ask for your collaboration in helping to choose the top 5 blogging topics for next week ;).

A lazy way of generating topic ideas? Possibly. A fun way of getting me back into the blogging habit? Absolutely!

I await your suggestions with anticipation…thank you!
