    Divas, Every Inch of You is Perfect From the Bottom to the Top

    in Women

    I absolutely love Meghan Trainor's song 'All About That Bass' because it makes any Diva of any size feel good about themselves. I especially love the line in the song that says "every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top". It doesn't matter what you look like, the size of clothes, the color of your hair...Diva's, YOU are perfect!! 

    I love today's DivaTalkRadio Show Guest, Ms. Camay McClure because she is a true DIVA in her own right. Ms. Camay holds a National Lifetime Title in Plus Size Pageantry, being crowned for her year of service, coaching and mentoring women across the country, teaching them to love themselves and love their bodies. There were many moments in Ms. Camay’s pageant journey to celebrate, however, there were more moments of heartbreak and pain, hurt and disappointment, even moments of public defamation, however, she never allowed any of that to defeat her. She continued on her journey of making a difference in the world, using all of the tests in pageantry as her testimony to other women who may have experienced similar challenges. “I have always been very confident and always had a positive self-image. I have always encouraged other women who struggle with their weight and body image to love their bodies-even women who are not plus size.”

    This Year We're Gonna Recruit Like It's 1999

    in Business

    The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, February 18, 2015, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT).


    Last week we talked about how to become workplace fascinating, and this week we're going to talk about how 2015 will be the best year for recruiting since 1999.


    Consider this: more jobs were created in 2014 than in any other year since 1999. According to a recent New York Times article, employers have hired more than one million people since November 1, 2014.


    However, it's not all "Happy New Year" champagne and caviar; there is still an end-of-times dirge bemoaning that upwards of 30 million Americans are either out of work or severely underemployed. 


    Either way, company culture and transparent relationships will be the primary drivers for successfully recruiting and retaining employees in 2015. The talent acquisition teams that get this will facilitate winning.


    Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn about how 2015 will be the best year for recruiting since 1999 with this week’s guest: Will Thomson, Global Sales Recruiter for Rosetta Stone and the Founder of Bulls Eye Recruiting.

    The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, February 11, 2015, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT).


    Last week we talked about whether or not HR should be split into two branches, and this week we're going to talk about how to become workplace fascinating.


    Of course there are plenty of personality assessments tell you how you see the world. But how does the world see you? What makes you most fascinating, and most valuable to the people around you? 


    You're all about to find out. Over the past two decades of research on communication, this week's guest has found that there are seven different ways to communicate and add value to your "audience." 


    We've taken "The Fascination Advantage" here at the TalentCulture #TChat Show. It's pretty awesome. And we'll give you the opportunity to take it as well!


    Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W.

    Should HR Be Split into Two Branches?

    in Business

    The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, February 4, 2015, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT).


    Last week we talked about how authentic storytelling in the workplace impacts talent strategies, and this week we’re going to talk about whether or not HR in the enterprise should be split into two branches.


    In fact, one of the hottest topics being discussed at the C-suite level is whether HR should be split into two distinct functions – one that handles administration and one that manages leadership and organization. 


    Research by Bersin by Deloitte supports the recommendation because HR is swamped with administrative tasks. In fact, nearly 50 percent of business and HR leaders surveyed said their companies are “weak” on preparing HR to deliver programs aligned with business needs.
     
    The right technology enables HR to scale certain tasks in a way that humans never can, bringing efficiencies to a complex administrative process that can’t be achieved otherwise. 


    HR needs to leverage this ability, so it can fulfill a critical role in the organization’s business strategy.


    Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn about whether HR should be split into two distinct functions with this week’s guest: Todd Owens, Chief Executive Officer at TalentWise.

    How Authentic Storytelling Impacts Talent Strategies

    in Business

    The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, January 28, 2015, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT).


    Last week we talked about how to manage the softer skills of your personal brand, and this week we're going to talk about how authentic storytelling in the workplace impacts talent strategies.


    Content marketing will no doubt be a 2015 buzzword. You create content to connect with customers, employees, and potential future employees and everything will be just dandy. Right?


    But while content is important, it’s not just about sharing content. It’s about sharing meaningful stories.


    People don't pay attention to most marketing messages. They pay attention to authentic stories, however. Authentic stories build community (think the TalentCulture #TChat community). And community includes people who tell stories by sharing their experiences, their purposes (or lack thereof) and by dreaming about a goal for the future.


    Authentic storytelling from leadership and employees impacts recruiting, retention and of course customer acquisition.


    Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn about how authentic storytelling in the workplace impacts talent strategies with this week’s guest: Christoph Trappe, Career Storyteller and Journalist.

    How to Manage the Softer Skills of Your Personal Brand

    in Business

    The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, January 21, 2015, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT).


    Last week we talked about how to maximize the cowbell principle, and this week we're going to talk about managing the softer skills of your personal brand.


    What rings true today in a world gone social that demands transparency and authenticity is the fact that your reputation is your personal brand. And vice-versa.


    But with everything so "on" and online virtually all the time, what happened to body language? Nothing actually. In fact, it's more important than ever, because we spend so much time online. Body language conveys everything from confidence to approachability; it's more honest than the spoken word.


    Literally in the blink of an eye, we can make someone feel quite valued or unceremoniously dismissed. That's why developing our softer skills is the new differentiator.


    Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn about how to manage the softer skills of your personal brand with this week’s guest: Deborah Thomas-Nininger, Founder of DTN Productions International-Hallmark of Etiquette, a "Reputation Management” training company.

    Diabetes Late Nite Inspired by Meghan Trainor

    in Health

    Mr. Divabetic and the Diabetes Late Nite team explore emotions related to living with diabetes with inspiration from Grammy Award nominee Megan Trainor.


    Megan Trainor’s break-out hit, “All About That Bass” features lyrics about body acceptance.  In this case, the bass is a metaphor for the booty. “Yeah it's pretty clear, I ain't no size two / But I can shake it, shake it like I'm supposed to do,” she sings.


    How well are you at accepting the fact that you’re living with diabetes? Negative emotions such as anger, frustration, hopelessness, fear, guilt and shame is very common among people with diabetes. Navigating your way through a range of emotions as well as learning to accept your diagnosis can prove to be a major stumbling block for many people’s daily diabetes self-care management.


    Guests include: Dr. Beverly S. Adler, PhD, CDE, Patricia Addie-Gentle RN, CDE, Poet Lorraine Brooks and Mama Rose Marie.

    Last week we talked about a world gone social and the power of OPEN (Ordinary Person | Extraordinary Network), and this week we're going to talk about the cowbell principle.


    In fact, we've got a fever, and the only prescription is more cow bell. Really.


    For individuals, a cowbell is a talent or gift. For businesses, it’s a durable competitive advantage. The key to happiness and success is knowing who you are and how you can make other people happy. A cowbell gives your value to people and they love you for it.


    Helping people and businesses find their true cowbell, develop it and communicate it is what this show is all about. 


    Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn about how to maximize the cowbell principle with this week’s guests: Brian Carter, internationally bestselling author and one of the best known names in digital marketing and social media; and Garrison Wynn, author of the Amazon.com bestseller The REAL Truth About Success and sought after speaker.

    Topically Yours - The Duprees Tony Testa

    in Entertainment

    Deardra Shuler interviews Tony Testa of The Duprees who will be performing as part of a Doo Wop show at Lehman Center for the Performing Arts in the Bronx, NY. on Saturday, January 24, 2015 at 8:00 pm.  Other groups featured to appear with the Duprees are The Platters, The Belmonts, Barbara Harris & The Toys, Larry Chance & The Earls and Ragdoll.


    The Duprees were formed in the early 1960’s in Jersey City, NJ by five William L. Dickinson High School students. They were discovered by big band leader George Paxton who combined their smooth doo-wop vocal harmonies with a big band backing on their first single, a cover of Jo Stafford’s “You Belong To Me”, which was an instant top-ten hit and million-seller. Thus the sound of the Duprees was born and hits in the same format kept coming throughout the 1960s including “My Own True Love,” “Take Me As I Am,” “Why Don't You Believe Me,” “Have You Heard,” “Love Eyes,” “It Isn't Fair” and “Let Them Talk.” Over the years, various members of the band have come and gone, but their unique mixture of doo-wop vocals with big band arrangements has remained.


    Along with Tony Testa, Jimmy Spinelli, Tommy Petillo, and Phil Granito make up the rest of the current group. Original member Michael Kelly left the group in 2012.  The other 3 original members, Joe Santollo, Joey (Canzano) Vann and Michael J Arnone passed.


    In 2006, the original Duprees were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame.


    Lehman Center for the Performing Arts is located on the Lehman College campus, located at 250 Bedford Park Boulevard West, Bronx, NY 10468. Tickets can be purchased by calling the Lehman Center box office at 718-960-8833 or online at www.LehmanCenter.org.
