Successful Mentoring in HR Made Easy – Grab The FREE Kindle Version NOW! (Expires February 24)

By Alan Collins

I’m a huge advocate of seizing opportunities to share your HR expertise beyond your day job.

And mentoring others in HR is a terrific way to share your wisdom, max out your expertise and add value to others.

If you’ve ever been called on to be someone’s mentor in HR or if would like to undertake this kind of role yourself, there is a terrific new book out on the topic that can help you as an HR pro master this career-enhancing skill.

It’s written by Alisa Charles and titled:

Successful Mentoring in HR: 9 Ways To Turn Your Human Resources Expertise Into Your Own Unique Process for Mentoring Others in HR.

And the best news of all is that… 

She has also agreed to offer a FREE KINDLE VERSION of this book that you can download now – BUT ONLY UNTIL FEBRUARY 24.  

Consider this a rare gift!  My suggestion — GRAB IT NOW!

Having done quite a bit of HR mentoring in my career, I can’t tell you how much I really wish I would have had this book years ago. It would have made me a much better mentor.

Nevertheless, in the limited mentoring I still do, this book has taught this old dog some new tricks that I will be applying right away.

It is clear, rich with steps and practical HR examples that makes it easy to follow. It’s packed with a wealth of information that delivers exactly what’s needed on mentoring, without being overwhelming.

The Horrible Lie That Just About Everyone In HR Tells Themselves…

By Alan Collins

My eyesight used to be bad.

Very bad.

I’ve worn glasses since I was eight years old.

But that all changed a couple of years ago.

Here’s what happened.

When I took my bi-annual eye exam, my optometrist gave me some distressing news.

He told me that I had an early onset of cataracts in both eyes. And I had reached the point where glasses (or contacts) could no longer correct my vision to 20/20.

I was reminded of this when I was recently asked to give a 30 minute talk to a group of 20 senior HR executives in Chicago.

Since I was only given a few days notice, I didn’t have a lot of time to prepare.

So I followed my “simple formula” for giving great 30 minute presentations…

Got An HR Interview Coming Up? Here Are 7 Things Your Next Employer Is Looking For…

by Alan Collins

Question: Alan, I’ve got an HR interview coming up next week. While I’ve interviewed lots of candidates as an HR Director, I haven’t interviewed myself for an HR job in five years. 

I’m excited, but I’m nervous and apprehensive as hell now that I’m on the other side of the table.  

What’s your take on what employers are really looking for these days?  
–Sarah A.   


Answer:  Hi Sarah, before I answer your question, let’s first talk about your apprehension.

Everyone gets nervous before interviews. It doesn’t matter if you have twenty-years of experience in HR and have interviewed hundreds of job candidates yourself as a recruiter…when you flip over to that other side of the table as an interviewee, it can be stressful.

Conducting HR Webinars For Extra Income While Keeping Your Day Job — An Expert Interview with Margie Faulk, PHR, SHRM-CP

By Alan Collins

Today, there seems to be lots of interest in discovering new ways to earn extra income from one’s knowledge and experience in HR.

However, most HR pros are highly skeptical that this can be done — especially those interested in doing it while keeping their full-time day job in HR.

Margie Faulk was initially skeptical as well.

That is, until she began developing, conducting and generating a second income from her own HR webinars.

Currently, in addition to her day job in HR, she runs webinars covering workplace compliance and HR international, national and local regulations.

I recently caught up with Margie and asked her squeeze some time into her hectic schedule to share some highlights about herself, her HR career and her webinar journey as part of our Success in HR Expert Interview Series.

Here are the key insights from my interview with Margie…
