Do you ever have moments where you look back on something you did that seemed little at the time but made a big impact in your life? One of those non-events that changed things profoundly or brought new insight and inspiration into your life? Looking back now, I had one of those moments recently.
What did I do, you ask? What was the monumental non-event?
Sound crazy? Well, I signed up for a Twitter account one year ago and then did not touch it. I didn’t understand exactly what I was supposed to do with it. Then, two months ago, I decided to just give it a try. It has opened up a whole new world for me. It has been a platform where I have met some of the most talented, smart HR professionals in this country (and beyond). They inspire me and fuel my passion for HR.The other night was a prime example.
I was “tweeting” with some HR pros and Steve Boese (@sbjet) threw out a great idea. He suggested we have a blog exchange (#blogexchange on Twitter). This would involve participants guest blogging on another blog. The real challenge is going to be bringing our “A” game while writing in a blog style that may be quite different from our own. Steve was asked to set up the pairings and now we are ready to go.
I am fortunate to have been paired with Lois Melbourne, the CEO of Aquire, Inc. I am excited to have the opportunity to work with her on this blog exchange. There are other pairings you should also check out:
So, come back soon to welcome Lois and see what she addes to the HR Ringleader’s blog!
