The ‘millennial problem’ isn’t actually a problem

Millennial. It’s a term we hear everywhere from the evening news to our HR director. Just mentioning it makes me feel as though I’ve spoken a dirty word. The lazy, tech-obsessed, entitled generation only good for living in their parents’ basements and playing with their latest gadget while changing jobs every six months. Or so […]

Do you think your employees are with you forever? Think again

I hear a lot of leaders concerned about their new millennial employees who don’t seem to stay around very long. They’re “job-hoppers.” We invest in them, and then they leave. While I understand the concern, there are a couple of really important flaws with this kind of thinking. First of all, the millennial “job hopping” […]

Why are associations losing their community value?

I’ve been thinking a lot recently about the challenges associations face in creating meaningful and engaging experiences for the communities they serve. This is, after all, the bread and butter of most associations. It’s what we should be great at: Professional networking and connections are at the heart of what associations are all about. But […]

How 1 association handled recession in its industry

Going to the gas station and filling up your tank is a much cheaper endeavor today than it was two years ago. As a consumer, this is great news for you. As the President of the Pipeline Research Council International, whose members are mostly pipeline operators, it means my job has been kicked into overdrive. […]

It’s time to get honest about recruiting

I think we can all agree the hiring process can be frustrating. For the employer, the pressure is on to find the “best talent,” but it’s flat-out hard to tell who’s the best during interviews. Even then, there’s the risk that those “best” people won’t like our culture and leave quite quickly, and that’s expensive […]

How an economic downturn affects your association

In the office today, I read the statement from the Reserve Bank of Australia on its decision to leave interest rates on hold. The general economic outlook isn’t feeling great. In Australia and internationally, many senior economists are concerned about the very real prospect of a significant economic downturn on the horizon. So how would […]

Technology will displace your members’ jobs

Technology is never going to stop. Technology is going to continue to make human jobs obsolete. Now we can say, of course, technology would displace human jobs on an assembly line. Thank goodness that so many difficult and dangerous manual labor jobs have been taken over by automation. No longer do we shovel coal into […]

What film school taught me about technology

In my last post, I talked about how “Star Trek” has shaped technology in many ways. I guess it makes sense that my metaphor came from an industry that I went to school for: Film. I love movies; I thought it would be cool to make them. That said, I didn’t go into film expecting to […]
