Speaker: Trish Uhl, Founder of Owl's Ledge LLC and the Talent & Learning Analytics Leadership Forum

Digital is disrupting every part of an organization's value chain at a record pace, creating a critical need to transform operations and employees' ways of working.

Policies that you should fight

My exempt coworker had vacation days pre-approved by our Manager via our computer-based "time-off" system. At the last minute, some work tasks compelled him to work on those vacation days (the company benefited from his closing a large, end-of-year sale). The computer based system we use to request vacation days in advance doesn't allow us or a manager to cancel the requests, so his vacation hours balance shows the hours are used and "gone".

No more stars?

I''ve read a couple of thoughtful and thought-provoking posts lately on how teams may perform better without stars, including this one at The HR Capitalist. First of all, let me say that I have personal experience with teams that have one ''go to'' person, which depending on the topic can either be frustrating or kind of nice.* When the go to person moves on, the team shakes out into a new constellation, sometimes a better, more open one with new stars, sometimes a sad, disfunctional one.

In the US women make up 49.9% of the workforce and it is predicted that the percentage of women in management will also increase over the next decade. It seems that the glass ceiling has relaxed - somewhat - for women who are willing to make the necessary personal sacrifices. For women with children, however, the story is different. Due to a combination of insufficient childcare and gender neutral expectations in the workplace, women are often forced to choose between children and careers.
