  • Engaging the Talent Within

    When I was a board member with my former employers, we would present an issue and we would share ideas/solutions and sometimes we'd ask:  "Who in the company would be able to add to this idea/solution?"  A simple but powerful statement.  What would happen if managers at all levels and even employees asked that question more often?  In reality, we are all experts in a number of areas and it's this expertise that brings value to an organization.  Recognizing this, more and more companies are attempting to access this wealth of expertise using social networking software tied to talent development.  We've recognized this trend for some time which is why we've created our CoachingComplete online system.   Read more

  • A Resource for Mentoring Dilemmas

    Being in the mentoring field, I frequently explore the internet to learn about new publications/resources.  Sadly, a lot of what is written is either repetitious or just not helpful.  There is a resource that I've had in my library that others may also find useful:  Mentoring Dilemmas: Developmental Relationships Within Multicultural Organizations edited by Murrell, Crosby and Ely published in 1999.  Focused on mentoring and diversity, it has interesting things to say about Asian, African American and gender pairings both in research and in practice.  I don't often recommend books but this is one of the better ones I've read and found it helpful in my mentoring training sessions.
