The Evolving Role CHROs responding to Crises w/ Rebecca Ray Conference Board
Join Michael as they chat with Rebecca Ray of the Conference Board as we discuss the evolving role of the CHRO in responding to crises and black swan events. On the show, we will discuss how:
Going forward, CHROs will partner with C-suite colleagues and the board to help shape the company’s voice on social issues.The ability to work closely with, and benefit from, board directors in their human capital management oversight role will be increasingly important. Strong culture—where employees feel included, valued, respected, and connected to something greater than themselves—will create a competitive advantage in attracting and retaining talent.Technology and analytics will be even more critical in guiding CHROs as they work toward business goals. CHROs will lead the organization toward a seamless hybrid culture, offering flexibility and upskilling.Through successive waves of “black swan” events, CHROs will need to rethink leadership development. Successful leaders must thrive in virtual and hybrid environments with blended teams.

Is this as good as it gets – really? w/ Markus Neukom
Join Michael as they chat with Markus Neukom as they chat about how managers can regain personal time and enjoy a better work life balance
Markus Neukom spent more than twenty years working with managers and professionals that are struggling to perform or progress in the workplace, many reaching the point they either reluctantly leave or increasingly, sadly are fired. But it is not their lack of expertise that is failing them and many only reach out for help when they are desperate, redundant or on the brink of being fired.
HERE'S THE TRUTH: I believe that thousands upon thousands of managers, from all over the world wake up every morning feeling powerless and unmotivated, asking themselves, "How can I do this one more day?" followed by "Is this as good as it gets – really?" If that's you… I have the solution.

Great content, not great audio quality
Unfortunately it can be hard to listen and understand all of the great interviews due to audio quality.
Hands down one of the best resources for recruiting in today's world
Mike, Crystal and their talented guests talk all things HR, but it’s so much more than that! It’s true that you’ll find actionable advice and tangible tips that are relative to any stage of your career, but you’ll also find the inspiration and insight to grow as a human being. Thanks so much for putting out such a spectacular show Mike & Crystal - keep up the great work!
I have been listening to this Podcast to help supplement some of my telework hrs for my job. But as soon as I heard one of your “guests” saying Trump supports were basically borderline retarded, you lost a listener. I know many don’t like our President, but that was just rude, distasteful, judgements, and just WRONG.
Good riddance to you’re so called Podcast.
PS..I would say the same if someone else was our president.
