In fact, I've been blogging, Tweeting and using wikis, Facebook and other tools for most of my clients. But that's been the problem. My social media energies have been expended on behalf of other people and I've lost touch with social media for myself.

Diversity and good management

Working Girl

One of the reasons I''ve been a bit quiet lately is that I''m taking a talent management certification course at Cornell, which takes up some of the time I typically use for blogging.
