Best Blogs 12 Dec 2014

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

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

Every week our theme emerges organically and the holiday season brings about reflections on thanks, joy – and bone-headed management moves.

These fine authors offer fresh and different perspectives on the intersection of life and work. Read on to test some of your own assumptions about life, practice and work.

Alison Chisnell writes simply the most evocative piece I’ve seen all week here. My words would only muddle the picture: read Alison to see what it feels like when the tables are turned. And keep reading @AlisonChisnell for continued illumination and support

Kasia Borowicz needs to write more, and this piece illustrates why. This fresh talent reminds all of us what some of the best parts of recruiting are. Read Kasia, lose the attitude and remember why you went down this path in the first place. @KMBorowicz will help you along the way

Alli Polin is my go-to resource for managing (read: breaking out of) comfort zones. In Alli I trust. In this wonderfully personal write Alli talks about why breaking out isn’t always obvious. To someone else. Do your own thing says @AlliPolin

David D’Souza gives us an early Christmas present by rounding up some behavioral economics titles we can all use. Having read a few of these I can tell you: this list is the real deal. Read @DDS180 and see how his list helps you understand why people do what they do

Helen Tracey Is changing the world. One blog at a time. In the most endearing piece I’ve read I a long time Helen talks about interviewing school children for HR. Poignant, funny and misty all at one. @HRPotential write another beautiful blog that will have you thinking

Julie Waddell know far too well the dangers of reading certain things. Like work-related material. In this delightful aide Julie shows us what a wicked sense of humors those Canadians can have. @JAWaddell almost makes me forget it’s (so) cold up there. Almost

Gemma Reucroft writes so much good stuff I could just re blog her every week and be done with it. Now, I don’t know what sprouts are or who Ann Summers is but Gem says avoid them. Both. And definitely not together. Whatever @HR_Gem says is good enough for me.

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!

Please come back in another seven days’ time for further thoughts and do check the archives of #BestBlogs for other intelligent writers, thinkers and doers addressing important questions about worklife.

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