Naomi’s Next Chapter: “Life’s A Banquet, And Most Poor Suckers Are Starving”

Auntie Mame — My Heroine

Wrapping Up My Consulting Practice, Starting My Next Career Chapter

[For those of who got an early draft, please do read the final as I've updated it considerably based on your feedback and some late-breaking next chapter developments.]

One of my absolute favorite actresses of all time was Rosalind [...]

Reprise: Choices, Compromises, Serendipity and Sh#t

Reflecting on what might make a great list of 2013 predictions — beyond those I’ll be discussing next week on my first videocast – I realized that I’d either be repeating a list of hot topics with which you’re already familiar or showing my ignorance (it’s getting worse not better with the explosion of [...]

Impressions From HR Technology Conference 2012

Trumpie And Me!

I’ve just reread my observations from last year’s conference, and you should too. If I say so myself, it’s a pretty accurate portrayal of what was happening then, much of which is still happening but which is much farther along, at least in some (but by no means all) vendor products [...]

Reflections On A Long Career — Part IV — Summing Up

The Message Is Clear!

In the first three posts of this series, here, here and here, I reflected on various aspects of building and sustaining a long and successful career. Now it’s time to sum up the lessons of my own career, a long professional run for which I’m truly grateful.

There’s [...]

Reflections On A Long Career — Part III — The Network Effect

Tales Of The Mighty Rolodex

It always was and always will be about the power of the network. It really does “take a village,” the mutual support we derive from friends, family and colleagues, not only to raise our children but also to help us every step of the way through life. We owe [...]

What Color Is Your Hair — Really?

Choose Your Color, Any Color

People of all ages choose to modify their hair color, and for many different reasons. Sometimes, it’s simply to give themselves a change, as when a young person colors their blond hair auburn or brunette hair blond. Sometimes, it’s just to call attention to oneself, or to demonstrate a [...]

Reflections On A Long Career — Part II — My Heroes

Larry Seidel's Other Interests

My first post in this series was about what we can do to prepare for and sustain a long, productive and satisfying career. In this post, I’d like to give credit — and there’s a lot to give — to the people who helped shaped the professional I became. We [...]

Reflections On A Long Career — Part I — Life-long Learning

"If I could turn back time"

I’m a year older than Cher, and we would both “turn back time” if we could. Who wouldn’t? We also share having had a very long career — if nothing else — and mine is still in high gear. But it’s about what it takes to develop and [...]

A Bloom’s Christmas: Inventory Management And Retail Retold

A Page From Bloom's Camera 1950 Catalog

On Christmas Eve, my Dad’s retail camera shop closed early, and we knew we’d have him with us all that next day. Really just with us, even if he was too tired for much conversation after working the very long hours of the retail Christmas season. [...]

And It’s Not Even Full-Blown Hurricane Season Yet!

Hurricane Charley 2004

I’m flippin’ tired of all the bad news. My twitterstream has been a surreal mixture this year of enterprise software (#EnSW) developments, HRM happenings and insights (#HRM) and all things related to HR technology (#HRTech) along with the end of civilization as we’ve known it brought to me by the global [...]
