Women in Leadership

Join us this Thursday at 5pm ET for the Future-Proof Workplace show!

What does it take to be an empowered leader, one who translates big visions into big impact? Join us this week with Linda Patten, international speaker and best-selling author, as we explore the elements of successful leadership – not simply commanding or managing, but developing the mindset and skills of influencing, inspiring and motivating others to take their success journey together.

Her life’s work is challenging women to dare to lead: whether it is for navigating the often-daunting entrepreneurial world, building strong teams for a thriving business, stepping out of the shadows into the light as a leader of one’s life, or learning the leadership skills that will grow the seeds of change into a world-level movement.

Are you Using the Right Skills to Move your Business Forward?

Join us this Thursday at 5pm ET for the Future-Proof Workplace show!

You need business thinking for business success. Additionally, before you go off and acquire a number of new skills, you must ensure that you do not have any of the ‘silent killers of success’.

Our guest, Ram Iyer, Founder & CEO of the Business Thinking Institute has done extensive research and knows what behaviors are getting in the way of your success. He is an entrepreneur who learned the hard way and will be sharing his invaluable experience. Join us for this powerful discussion.

The Business Thinking Institute is focused on helping individuals become more successful in business – business owners, entrepreneurs, executives, freelancers, employees, people with MBAs and those without. He has a particular interest in helping techies like himself succeed in business.

Ram has started four companies and has had successes and failures. He found out the hard way that business success requires ‘business thinking’.  And, he found that one can easily fail in business – as an owner or an employee – because of the ‘silent killers of success’ – uncommon common sense. That prompted the founding of the Business Thinking Institute. He has interviewed about 150 business leaders worldwide and hosts the Business Thinking Radio podcast to glean insights and help more people succeed in business.

 

 

Is HR Still Viable in the New Digital Age?

Join us this Thursday at 5pm ET for the Future-Proof Workplace show!

Many have been challenging the role of Human Resources (HR) in the new workplace, as more technology takes over what HR professionals have traditionally done. The whole entire employee life cycle with an organization is shortening, and there is a trend to managers being more HR savvy. We also now have predictive analytics, digital onboarding and career planning. How do HR practitioners add value in this digital age? We contend they will be needed more than ever, but some of the old industrial and bureaucratic practices of the past must be updated or thrown out all together. This week’s show will explore with Neil Reichenberg, the Executive Director of the International Public Management Association for Human Resources (IPMA-HR), who will offer his perspective on the changing role of HR and what HR professionals must do to stay current in an ever-changing field.

Neil Reichenberg serves as the chief executive officer of IPMA-HR and is responsible for the overall management of the association. He is in his 38th year with IPMA-HR and his 22nd year as Executive Director. He is a graduate of the University of Maryland and New York Law School.
