Best Blogs 18 July 2014

Welcome to #BestBlogs, the weekly curation of the world of work.

Due to a slight upset – our house was under water due to heavy rains – we are two days delayed from our normal publish date, but we slog on undeterred!

The latest ideas on organization life, personal collaboration and the politics of work from practitioners around the globe are collected here so you may become more effective, perhaps even more satisfied, in career.

Every week our themes emerge organically and this week our writers share their insight on being more reflective in our professional life. What are some available tools and choices we have and can make to be more human in a modern world?

These fine authors offer you fresh and different perspectives on the intersection of life and work.

Ray Anne simply has the best write of the week. Want to be strong, heartfelt and sincere? Then you need to be tenacious. Read @Ray_Anne to see what that looks like and feels like. She is tenacious

Rory C Trotter Jr has a simple question – why can’t we develop internal talent? In this insightful piece he uncovers the fundamental issue and the oft-turned to resource: buy talent. But does that make sense? See @RoryCTrotterJr to find out

Helen Tracey simply gets better and better. Read here (and remember I alerted you to her talents first) why the workplace environment really matters. And by the way, if you see a polar bear, set it free. (Carefully) @HRPotential will show how

Justin Harris knows you need to be a little more mellow – er, Melo. Are you getting what you’re worth? Are you efforts worth your rewards? Justin does what he does best and offers the clean example you can learn from. Want to learn more? See my friend @UnlikelyHRGuy

Ilana Charette will remind you what its like to be young and fearless. Impetuous? Perhaps. Full of life? Absolutely. Read this young writer to remember what is inside of you. And then go for it again; we are never too old – @IlanaCharette will help you

Thank you for reading this week’s edition of #BestBlogs all about building and practicing meaningful worklife.

Each writer offers a practiced yet challenging perspective enabling us to re-examine our own positions. In life, look for those who challenge your thinking to help you grow.

Come back in another seven days’ time for more new thoughts and please do check the archives of #BestBlogs for additional intelligent writers, thinkers and doers addressing important questions about worklife.

Have a wonderful weekend wherever you are in the world my friends!
