SHOW NOTES: Our HR HEROES HANGOUT™ series is dedicated to those who serve our societies each day, toiling in the bowels of the human capital infrastructure issues that fuel all organizations (hiring, retention, engagement, training, etc.); our HR HEROES! These are the unsung heroes that ensure that organizations achieve and sustain maximum human capital competitive advantage! In this episode our topic is, “Make your managers and executives HR fans and supporters!!”
HR is a glamorous and exciting field (it really is) where every single aspect of an organization is addressed. It deals with money (compensation, promotions, benefits, etc.), power (promotions, etc.) and respect (the concept of being valued). Our HR HEROES understand that they are not going to simply be a peripheral “administrative” entity but are instead the very heart of the organization. HR toils to ensure that people and resources are distributed and circulated throughout the entire organization. The HR HEROES are proactive and strive for their managers and executives to be fans (not simply reluctant participants).
A fan (or even better a “super-fan”) is eager to hear from HR, they look forward to their input, they are excited to be part of their initiatives. They know that their lives are better (easier, less stressful, more enjoyable, etc.) with their HR HEROES leading them, supporting them and looking out for them each day. We explore why our HR HEROES should strive to make fans of their managers and supervisors and the basic framework for how to do so (proactive, enthusiastic, assessment and pruning of interaction from the perspective of the recipient executive or manager). They are always asking, how does this make their lives better?

E. Lynn Harris, introduced millions of readers to the "invisible life" of black gay men. Openly gay, Harris was best known for his depictions of African-American men who were on the down-low and closeted. He authored ten consecutive books that reached The New York Times Best Seller list, making him among the most successful African-American or gay authors of his era. Harris abruptly died in Los Angeles in July 2009, where he was meeting with television and film executives about his books. Since his death, there has been a noticeable void in the African-American publishing world, particularly in the gay fiction genre.
We will be joined by two of Harris’ literary offspring, authors Mondell T. Pope and Bryan T. Clark.
Highlands, NC – The most important job any leader has is to foster a culture of creativity and innovation within the organization. Most corporate team leaders and entrepreneurs think that championing idea generation and brainstorming is all there is to developing an environment conducive to innovation.
That is only the beginning.
Susie deVille is the founder and CEO of the Innovation and Creativity Institute, a consulting practice dedicated to teaching corporate executives and entrepreneurs how to promote cultures of innovation that spark creativity and consistently create value.
“Most business owners are trying to reverse engineer innovation and creativity while struggling with how to lead their teams as well as their own lives,” says Susie. “You can’t begin to understand innovation and creativity until you bring in the idea of leadership of self and leadership of others.”
As an expert in entrepreneurship and anthropology, Susie has nine years of consulting experience helping clients develop innovative products, services and business models. In her seminars and workshops, people learn to lead in a way that generates creativity from everyone on their teams – including themselves.
The author of the forthcoming book Innovation is Free, Susie says the key to meaningful innovation is to take a playful approach that looks at problems with fresh eyes
“If you show me a playful organization, where failure considered an absolutely necessary part of the process, I’ll show you a creative and innovative organization," says Susie. "Creativity is within the grasp of every person, and it’s not so difficult for people to reconnect to it once they are shown how to do so.”

On this episode of Carson's Corner, we will continue our analysis of the issues raised in Paul Street's new book, "They Rule: The 1% vs Democracy." We will discuss the dominance of the financial sector, and how we went from industrial to finance.
Yesterday, host Bob Carson wrote this statement for http://electionboycott.weebly.com/
In 2008, I supported President Obama (although I didn’t vote, and have never voted in an election) under the belief that President Obama was the alternative to the conditions we faced at that time. Shortly after his election, it became apparent that Obama was indeed a more effective evil in advancing the corporate agenda of the ruling class. He famously told Wall Street executives, the very people that melted our economy, “I am here to help.”
A wise man named Jacques Fresco once said, “Politicians are not elected to change things, they are elected to keep things the same.” Keeping things the same entails a furtherance of the corporate state, which makes life in America unbearable for those not in the ruling class. Since it is obvious you cannot work within the system for change, boycotting the elections is the most effective form of dissent. The very definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again.
Bob will break this down further.
The program all about TV, simulcast live on BlogTalk Radio and Brooklyn Independent Media HD. Our guests: Intruders creator/executive producer Glen Morgan and executive producer Julie Gardner, and Evangeline Shelley and Megan Trite, executives from MaxMy TV, a home automation via TV/crowdfunding project..
