I'm both fascinated and terrified by the pace of exponential change. Disruption, innovation, creativity, and disruptive transformation transpires me. I'm excited how the convergence of ideas, humans, and technology might improve the quality of life for all, advancing education, reducing poverty, protecting our planet and ...the list goes on. But the accelerating pace of technology also terrifies me, specifically when it comes to the growing knowledge gap, shifts in power, and widespread naivete of the masses.

Plan B: Living and Thriving on the Exponential Curve

Welcome to life on the exponential curve! R.I.P. to the way it was. Uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity have always been part of our lives. But lately, the accelerating pace of change has turned volatility into the new normal, creating a continuous flow of exponential disruption called VUCA. Unfortunately, many of us suck at on-the-fly adaptation, leaving us with the feeling we just got the SHIFT knocked out of us. Drawing upon his lifelong study of how to make change work and passion for helping others, Ira S Wolfe shares the personal mindsets and leadership skills required for navigating and thriving during exponential change. His authentic and very relatable style leaves audiences with a sense of hope, opportunity, and fresh perspective.

Recruiting in the Age of Googlization

The future came too fast for HR. Routine, every-day events are quickly taking on a very futuristic route. Things that seemed impossible are now mainstream. Talent acquisition is no exception and yet many organizations continue to recruit like it was 1970. Consequently, top talent just “swipes left” in mind-numbing fashion. To win the race for talent, every expert agrees the future of HR depends on its ability to deliver an awesome candidate experience, from your career site to the job offer. During this presentation Recruiting in the Age of Googlization author/speaker Ira S Wolfe will guide you on a candidate’s job search, share modern candidate decision behaviors, and provide tips and insights on how to align recruitment with candidates, and ultimately convert more qualified job seekers to new hires.

Your Candidate Experience is All FCDD Up

You can hear it in Danny’s voice: Candidate Resentment Fueled by Frustration, Confusion, Disappointment, and Distraction (or FCDD.) Danny represents just one of the thousands of job seekers who experience one or more of these emotions every single day from an all-too-familiar bad candidate experience. Join Recruiting in the Age of Googlization author/speaker Ira S Wolfe in this presentation as he guides you on a modern candidate’s job search journey, explains how to meet top talents’ expectations, and provides expert tips on how to engage more qualified job seekers.

Quit Rates Hit 20-record high | Perfect Labor Storm
Ira S Wolfe
June 15, 2021
When I wrote my first book in 2004, things like “the cloud” and iPads were nothing more than a “geeks” fantasy. Instead, I predicted a “Perfect Labor Storm,” an accelerating convergence of demographics, technology, education, and globalization. Fast forward 17 years. More U.S. workers are quitting their jobs than at any time since 2000. The US Chamber of Commerce just confirmed labor shortages are the most critical and widespread challenge facing businesses. According to a recent WSJ article, some regions of the country are experiencing more than 3 job openings for each unemployed worker. The result: 92 percent of small business owners report few or no "qualified" applicants. In the last 30 days, job openings reached record levels - exceeding the record set in November 2018 and 24% higher than pre-pandemic February 2020.

Human Capital Management Meets Wall Street
Success Performance Solutions
May 22, 2021
Companies spend more on people than any other asset. If companies are not measuring the return they are getting on this tremendous expense/asset, they are not doing good business. People should be thought of as an investment, not just an expense. If human capital is not appropriately invested in, then a wave will crash down upon every aspect of the business. Data Analytics should be used to make informed Human Resource decisions. Using Human Capital Analytics helps determine what is best for the company as a whole and what will benefit most people.

What is Mental Flexibility?
Success Performance Solutions
May 03, 2021
In a fast changing, uncertain, and complex world (VUCA), our prior mental models, experiences, and even our education are poor guides for good decisions in the future. That doesn’t mean we throw “the baby out with the dirty bathwater,” but learn to question our assumptions and unlearn skills and behaviors that no longer work.
Psychological, or cognitive, flexibility is a fundamental aspect of health. When people possess this type of flexibility, they are more able to manage themselves – positive emotions and well-being – in an unpredictable and uncertain world.

Mental flexibility isn’t just helpful in our personal lives, though. Increasingly, it is a necessary, but short in supply, trait in the workplace. It allows one to see tensions or trade-offs in everyday life as innovative ways to learn and ultimately adapt.

COVID19 changed the game for every dimension of business. From multi-billion-dollar conglomerates to small family businesses, no one was exempted from the disruptions it brought.

[Podcast] Great Organizations Avoid Making These 3 Hiring Mistakes
Success Performance Solutions
September 25, 2020
Hiring the right talent is never easy, but Mike Sarraille and George Randle highlight three common mistakes in their new book The Talent War: How Special Operations and Great Organizations Win on Talent. Too many companies lack a talent mindset, do not connect hiring decisions to their strategic plan, and rely on fear-based hiring. So how can companies win on talent? It all starts with adopting a talent-based mindset, which is the core belief that human capital is the only thing that helps you maintain your advantage. Then, connect each hiring decision to your company’s strategic plan. Finally, make the shift to potential-based hiring, focusing on your talent’s character and mindset rather than qualifications or experience.

REBUILDING REMOTE LEADERSHIP STARTS WITH BUILDING TRUST
Cornerstone
June 30, 2020
Last month, I wrote an obituary for normal: the way things used to be. Many typical practices and ways of working are no longer effective, forcing everyone to utilize the most valuable skill of 2020: adaptability.

One area where this is especially prominent is in leadership. The shelter-in-place orders eliminated face-to-face interactions and hands-on supervision has been replaced with digital communication and invisible oversight. The long-held belief that employees couldn’t be trusted to work as hard or as efficiently was put to the test. Likewise, many managers found themselves challenged to manage a remote, distributed workforce.

Trust in a Post-Pandemic World
Ira S Wolfe
April 30, 2020
Uncertainty breeds fear and we have a bumper crop. Trust is an antidote but like testing and PPE to fight COVID-19, we’re experiencing a bit of a drought these days. Without trust, people can become apathetic, and even hostile. Dr. Chuck Coker is on a mission to change that.

He has spent his entire career researching and helping others understand behavior, values, and motivation. While all those factors are important, he believes that trust will be the key to emerging and recovering successfully from the pandemic crisis. Based on years of research, Chuck was able to identify and validate 5 essential and common aspects of “Trustworthiness”:
- Transparency
- Relatability
- Predictability
- Feasibility
- Empowerment

He just released his Trust Questionnaire, which helps individuals and organizations assess which aspects of trust are strengths or vulnerabilities.

Why the post-pandemic world will be ‘business as unusual’
Lehigh Valley Business Journal
April 16, 2020
The COVID-19 crisis will pass soon. But don’t kid yourself: there won’t be anything usual or normal about this recovery. It will leave many organizations reaching for a playbook and grabbing nothing but a handful of air.

There is simply no modern-day parallel to what we’re experiencing. The virus was novel and so was the response. This one-two punch triggered one of the biggest sociological and economic disruptions in history.

But as unprecedented as those events were, the recovery may be just as disruptive. The playbook for recovery is being written on the fly or as I like to say, “We’re building this plane while flying it.” No one knows for sure where we’re headed and how we’ll land. All we know is the ride is going to be a bit turbulent, the roadmap uncertain, the path paved with complexity and the outcome ambiguous.

Fortunately, we are resilient.

It’s clear that the impact a bad candidate experience can have on one’s business is more than a little troubling.

Recruitment in the Age of Googlization
Author's Place Press
December 01, 2017
No business function is being disrupted by technology and demographics as much as recruitment. Tried and true recruiting practices are no longer working. New job categories are emerging, traditional jobs are disappearing and employment technologies are advancing at an exponential pace. An evolving definition of work and acceleration in the automation of work is only intensifying the competition for qualified workers. And yet many companies continue to recruit and screen talent like it was still 1970.In Recruiting in the Age of Googlization, Ira S Wolfe exposes the realities of automation on the future of jobs and the rapid reconstruction of the concept of work. Wolfe illuminates with his down-to-earth writing style how exponential change will transform or eliminate most jobs and make many business models irrelevant or unrecognizable. Wolfe's examples read like science fiction jumping off the pages of everyday reality. His forecasts and solutions are simultaneously exciting and terrifying. It is within this new business environment that organizations must learn to recruit and retain talent.Whether you're responsible for Human Resources or management or the average worker or student wondering what's next for his or her career, Recruiting in the Age of Googlization is a thought-provoking, compelling read. Recruiting in the Age of Googlization provides a blueprint for a recruitment process that works in any organization. The solution is built on a framework of best practices that will surely help organizations recruit, select, manage, and retain the talent they need. The book will inspire new ideas, spark pivotal conversations, and challenge existing assumptions about business and help lay out a game plan to make change work.

The workplace has become a potential battlefield between four generations (and soon to be five) struggling to exert their influence and hold on to their world views and attitudes. At its center are the deep-rooted beliefs and attitudes held by each generation toward work, life, and communication.These differences in perspective and opinion are not new.

Perfect Labor Storm 2.0
Xlibris
August 25, 2007
Nearly 20 years ago, The Perfect Labor Storm started brewing. Job requirements dropped so low that jokes about "warm body" hiring and the "mirror" test (if candidates could fog a mirror, they qualified) became mainstream conversation in boardrooms and Human Resources departments. But much like discussions about climate change controversy ensued. A dot-com bust, 9/11, and the Great Recession was proof enough for the pundits and naysayers that shortages of skilled workers was merely anecdotal. Some even suggested it was a hoax.

But not unlike the Andrea Gail, the boat sucked under by the colossal force two days before the full force of "The Perfect Storm" hit, many businesses and organizations are meeting the same fate. Skilled workers are becoming harder and harder to find. While managers and business owners were hoping that the dark clouds would pass over, they failed to understand that this Perfect Storm was unlike any other crisis they ever confronted. Many if not most never took the Perfect Labor Storm seriously. Their wait-and-see attitude and shortsighted strategies is sinking their Andrea Gails - the businesses they caption.

Since the mid 1990s author Ira S Wolfe has tracked the past and future careers of workers while studying demographic and socio-economic trends set against a background of an unprecedented pace of technological advancement. When Wolfe first introduced The Perfect Labor Storm Generation X was the youngest generation. Since that time, Millennials and now Generation Z have assumed that position while the oldest Gen X are now 50+ years old.

The Perfect Labor Storm details multiple factors converging that can't be ignored. For starters, a shortage of skilled workers exists as predicted by Wolfe. While not evenly distributed, no industry or geographic boundary is protected. But the shortage is almost a symptom and not the cause of bigger problems.

Aging populations, five generations working simultaneously, globalization, a crazy pace of technological change, and the growth of female breadwinners have converged to upset norms and traditions. Adding salt to the wound is an ailing healthcare system, failing education for the middle and lower class, increasing employee turnover, obesity, and number of other contributing factors.

Future labor shortages will not blow over. Time has proven that we are experiencing structural disruption in our economy and labor markets unlike any time since the Industrial Revolution in the 19th century. Management, politicians, and bureaucrats are playing in a new sandbox. The Perfect Labor Storm lays out in detail why shortages of skilled workers will not blow over and initiates the conversation that must take place.

Create an Awesome Candidate Experience
Ira S Wolfe
December 01, 2019
A job candidate should walk away from the recruitment experience feeling good, even if rejected. But despite billions of dollars invested in HR technology and countless human hours spent working on improvement, many candidates walk away disappointed, resentful, and even angry. According to The Talent Boards 2019 Research report, candidate resentment has increased 40 percent since 2016. That should be horrifying news since resentment means 71% of rejected candidates will tell their inner circle and one-third will publicly shame you on social media. That’s not just bad for HR but bad for the brand, bad for the business, and bad for the bottom line.
Creating an Awesome Candidate Experience consists of 3+ hours of video interviews with digital and UX experts, candidate experience leaders and multiple how-to lessons. I'm adding fresh content regularly as well as a workbook, so expect to see fresh content regularly.

Workforce 2030
Ira S Wolfe
October 04, 2019
Excerpt from Keynote at Lehigh Valley 2030 Workforce Summit

Just weeks after Ira S Wolfe told the audience of business and HR leaders attending Workforce 2030 that they need to keep an eye on companies like Uber, Uber launched a new app to connect workers with businesses. Businesses can use the Uber Works app to seek and hire workers for short-term or temporary jobs. The Uber Works app allows workers to browse through gig jobs with information about gross pay, job location and required skills. Workers can even log their hours through the app.
In my book Recruiting in the Age of Googlization, I end it by asking the question: “What technological disruption or event could disrupt your ability to recruit, hire, and retain top talent in the next 2 to 3 years?”

HR is at a tipping point, and must take a fresh look at how it approaches job candidates and employees. That's according to Ira Wolfe, author of "Recruiting in the Age of Googlization: When the Shift Hits Your Plan," who joins XpertHR Legal Editor David Weisenfeld to discuss recruiting challenges during this time of uncertainty. Wolfe is the president of Success Performance Solutions and often presents at SHRM conferences.

Wolfe recommends using technology to automate processes whenever possible so employers can better handle the influx of resumes that they have been receiving since COVID-19 hit. He also calls the current situation "a gold mine and huge opportunity" for forward-thinking employers as they realize that, for many jobs, new hires do not need to be physically on-site.

Re-Imagining Leadership and Future of Work
Ira S Wolfe
April 30, 2020
As the pandemic curve flattens and businesses reopen, the “welcome back” for workers will be anything but normal. In fact, normal died and in its wake, it left a bountiful crop of uncertainty and confusion. Once familiar surroundings will seem at best alien and the workplace will be mostly inconvenient, frustrating, and even bizarre. The once unimaginable - “safe zones,” facial masks, temperature checks, social distancing, sneeze guard partitions, and even contact tracing apps - will blur the line between reality and science fiction. Does HR have a plan B? To help make sense of our “new business-as-UNusual,” I’ve invited 3 HR thought leaders - Lee Andrese (akathame) and Lance (ERE/TLNT) to help reimagine the Future of HR, Leadership, and Work.

What Good is Strategic Planning When Our Future is Filled with Uncertainty

Focus on Coming Out Stronger!
Do you have a plan to emerge from the pandemic crisis? A funny thing happened on the way to tomorrow. We found ourselves without a plan. Normalcy was suspended. Our world was knocked off its axis. But fortunately it keeps spinning...just a little faster than it did a few weeks ago. Now we need a plan to emerge. Overnight most of us found ourselves stuck in a world between reality and science fiction, crushing strategic plans and humbling (and even humiliating) our leaders. If you’re ready to ask the really tough questions about where we go from here, then you don’t want to miss my interview with Kathy Bowman Atkins, CEO/Co-Founder of The Lattitude Group. We talk about:

- Focus on coming out stronger!

- How uncertainty and volatility changes strategic planning.

How to Bounce Back from a Crisis
Ira S Wolfe
April 17, 2020
How will you regain the confidence of employees and customers after the imminent threat of COVID-19 passes? If our response to the pandemic taught us anything, making it up as we go is painful. What's your plan to avoid your next crisis: getting back on your feet? Are you prepared to reopen your doors, to welcome back employees, and interact with customers? My guest, crisis management expert Edward Segal, speaks from experience: you need a reality check and a plan. His #1 reality check is that hope, denial, and ignorance don't work. His advice about a plan is simple: if you fail to plan, you're planning to fail! Join Edward Segal and me (Ira S Wolfe) as we discuss how to bounce back from COVID-19 and prepare for the next crisis (and believe me, there will be another!)

America's Next Pandemic: Labor Crisis
Ira S Wolfe
April 14, 2020
While everyone is anxiously anticipating the “reopening of America,” Ed Gordon is filled with uneasiness and caution about what he sees: an imminent “labor pandemic.”There will be big changes in how we work, where we work, and who does the work. The shift will be so dramatic that Ed Gordon forecasts a historic shortfall of “prepared” workers and a record glut of under-educated people. He forecast that only 26% of the jobs will be low-skill, low-wage but over 150 million people in the U.S. will be competing for them. How many workers will permanently lose their jobs due to a lack of skills? What skills will workers need to get back on their feet? What needs to be done to close the skills gap? What will education, training, and upskilling look like? Join me and Ed as we discuss Jobs and Labor in the Post Pandemic Era.

Ed Gordon is the founder and President of Imperial Consulting Corporation and author of 21 books on jobs, work, and education. His latest book is Future Jobs.

The Post-Pandemic HR Playbook
Ira S Wolfe
April 10, 2020
The COVID-19 crisis will pass soon. But don’t kid yourself: there won’t be anything usual or normal about this recovery. Who works, where we work, how we work will change and there is no playbook for this. Everyone will be fighting above his/her weight class and making it up as we go. Under these circumstances, reaching out to The Evil HR Lady (aka Suzanne Lucas), seemed like the right move. Suzanne if you're not familiar with her, has been challenging HR and its leaders for years. She calls it like it is. The next few weeks and months will be HR's defining moment.

HR's Plan B to Welcome Back Workers
Ira S Wolfe
March 27, 2020
Within the past 2 weeks, thousands of businesses were closed and millions of workers started working-from-home. When the Covid-19 pandemic subsides, the expectation is life will go back to the way it was. It won't. It's difficult to predict the future but one thing is certain. The future will be different. Do you have a Plan B to "reboard" employees? How do you plan to welcome back workers? How will address their fears? How will you ramp up their productivity and rebuild engagement? What policies, practices, and attitudes must change and change fast? This is one of those practical, insightful, and thought-provoking interviews you don't want to miss. You won't be disappointed! I am joined by my friend and colleague Ed Krow, author of the new book Strategic HR.

When it comes to filling open jobs these days, almost nothing should be off the table…and it’s about time. The current labor shortage has finally forced companies to reimagine recruitment and think about HR in new and innovative ways. Elisa Garn, who calls herself a Human Experience Evangelist, came up with what she calls a crazy idea – Monetize HR. She says “the craziest thing, it worked” and she has the proof. Elisa is this week’s Geeks Geezers and Googlization Show guest and she shares how she earned the attention and respect of the senior executive team.

July 07, 2021
For years, virtual reality (VR) has been synonymous with gaming. Matt Burns, founder of Bento HR and Global HR Summit, is betting VR will be the technology that helps HR transform the way businesses recruit, train, and develop their workforce. Confronted with historic HR challenges from recruitment and retention to reskilling and upskilling, conventional and traditional HR approaches just aren’t working. The problem is that many HR professionals don’t have a clue how VR can be used and the power and the potential it can unlock. I’m excited to welcome Matt Burns to Geeks Geezers Googlization to discuss the future of work, hybrid workplaces, and of course, how your company can make VR work to solve the #1 business challenge for the rest of this decade: skilled labor shortages.

How can leaders make sure their employees feel safe, included, and comfortable?

Struggling to attract great candidates fast? Open positions suffocating your company’s growth plans? What trends are shaping the future of recruitment and talent acquisition? There is definitely no one size fits all and making the best choices can be confusing. From job postings to virtual career fairs, video is part of any effective solution. Why video? Because according to this week’s guest Lindsay Stanton, President of Digi-Me, video attracts more talent to your job postings, engages them longer, and converts more job seekers to job applicants. Video isn’t just for job postings and career sites either. The virtual career fair arrived just in time for the pandemic but is sure to be a popular sourcing strategy moving forward. To help make sense of what’s next for HR Tech, video, digital recruiting, and the future of talent acquisition, listen or watch no!

Women in the Workplace: Diversity Hiring Practices
Geeks, Geezers & Googlization Show
May 27, 2021
With job openings at an all-time high, it’s crunch time for companies to get diversity hiring right. Women dropped out of the workforce in droves during the pandemic (almost twice the rate of men) but many won’t be coming back unless companies start treating them fairly, equitably, and as equals. The change goes beyond policies. According to the FairyGodBoss survey on diversity recruiting, 98 percent of organizations say it’s a priority, but only a fraction have made significant changes. Only 1 in 4 of those same companies even has a requirement for a diverse slate of candidates. Women of color were particularly hit hard. It’s also notable that some progress has been made at senior executive levels but much more work needs to be done at the front lines and even mid-management. Joining me for this Geeks Geezers Googlization Show is Georgene Huang, CEO, and co-founder of FairyGodBoss.com, the largest career community and job board for women.

How to Get Millennials and Gen Z to Say “I Love It Here” | 4:020
Geeks, Geezers & Googlization Show
May 20, 2021
Can you imagine leading an organization where employees from all generations respond to “What’s it like to work here?” with “I love it here!” Instead of making Millennials and Gen Z scapegoats and labeling 100 Million people as lazy, disloyal, and work-ethic deficient, treat them as people. That’s what Clint Pulver, as the Undercover Millennial, discovered after interviewing 10,000+ employees – that loyalty and engagement aren’t innate to different generations, but dependent on how managers and leaders treat all people. His research has discovered 4 types of managers and during this interview, he’ll share the impact that Mentor Managers have on building loyalty that lasts. Clint’s book “I Love It Here: How Great Leaders Create Organizations Their People Never Want to Leave” was published in April 2021.

Human Capital Management Meets Wall Street | 4:019
Geeks, Geezers & Googlization Show
May 12, 2021
Companies have promoted very proudly that “people are their most important asset.” But behind closed doors, they managed human capital as an expense. Recent changes, however, at The Securities and Exchange Commission now say “put up or be shut up!” Public companies are now required to disclose information about “human capital resources.” The lines between old-school workforce management and bottom-line growth are merging. While this new requirement currently only applies to public companies, it is not a stretch to say this will affect businesses large and small, public and private. What metrics should human resources start tracking today to comply with the demands of the modern marketplace? This week we reached out to Solange Charas, PhD., Founder and CEO of HCMoneyball and Distinguished Principal Research Fellow at The Conference Board, will share what this means for the future of Human Capital Management.

Recruitment Crickets? Your Hiring Might Suck!| 4:018
Geeks, Geezers & Googlization Show
May 05, 2021
If you’re hearing recruitment crickets, this could be why: your hiring process might suck! The economy is showing signs of a boom. The job market is heating up. The labor market is tight. Wages are rising and time-to-fill rates are rising. And yet, the top talent that companies seek, simply walk away and head straight to the competition. Why? HR and managers aren’t always on the same page. The values and expectations of hiring managers don’t align with the messaging used to attract candidates. Onboarding is more about paperwork and getting acknowledgment that new hires read the employee handbook than welcoming and introducing them into the business and culture. We also do our best to pound the last nail into the annual performance review’s coffin! It’s time that organizations accept that recruitment is marketing and hiring is sales according to our guest Molly McGrath, founder of Hiring & Empowering Solutions. In this episode, we’ll be talking about why HR and your managers may be killing your hiring process and how to fix it.

You’re probably familiar with the glass ceiling? But have you ever heard about the glass cliff, glass escalator, and sticky floor? Dr. Kate Richmond doesn’t believe that all men want to oppress women but masculine norms certainly present a strong argument that it’s still a man’s world. From birth, boys and men are socialized into a strict code that is difficult to break. The result is a workplace where gender inequity, motherhood wage penalties, sexual harassment, discrimination, and unpaid work persist despite a glaring spotlight shining down on them. Look no further than the impact of the pandemic. Women took a far bigger hit in job loss than men. Women bore the brunt of caregiving and childcare.

The case for gender diversity has never been stronger. An overwhelming 98% of organizations in a recent FairyGodBoss survey say diversity hiring is a focus in 2021. That’s a great start but reaching diversity recruiting and hiring goals takes more than good intentions. A Bloomberg revealed how “White and Male Some U.S. Companies Are!” Only 1 company of 100 largest U.S. corporations exceeded the U.S.population in its percentage of Black and Hispanic female executives and managers. Romy Newman, co-founder of the largest online career community for women, is determined to ensure women get a fair shake in the workplace. In this episode of Geeks Geezers and Googlization we’re going to be talking with Romy about how women search for jobs differently than men, why employer branding and messaging matters, and how to close the gender diversity data black hole.

Stop Beating the Human Out of HR
Geeks, Geezers & Googlization Show
November 30, 2020
Many companies have simply beaten the human right out of Human Resources says our guest Mark S Babbitt, world-renowned career and leadership mentor. Most companies don’t know what they stand for, company cultures suck. They can’t look a candidate in the eye and say “here you are safe. Here we respect you as a person. You will grow here as a human being.” Mark is on a mission to fix that. His company WorkIQ helps leaders and HR teams find their way and discover their value proposition. He is also founder of YouTern, a social career resource for college students, recent graduates, and young professionals that enables them to use mentoring, internships, and networks to advance their careers. His new book, Good Comes First: How Today’s Leaders Build an Uncompromising Company Culture That Doesn’t Suck, published by BenBella Books, arrives September 2021.

If you are wondering what a submarine has to do with diversity and inclusion, it’s EVERYTHING! On a submarine, inclusion is critical to teamwork, to accomplish the mission, to reduce conflict, and to appreciate the strengths of every individual. Inclusion is so engrained that it is organic.

Decoding AQ with Ross Thornley An Interview with Adaptability Practitioner Ira S Wolfe
Success Performance Solutions
November 11, 2020
Coming from a family of small business owners led Ira to view businesses primarily as employers. They thrive on the quality of the relationships they can build with their employees. He carried that through his first career as a dentist and into his current position as Chief Googlization Officer at Success Performance Solutions.

Even as a dentist, Ira identified mostly as an entrepreneur. He learned to identify which skills he built as a dentist were transferable to other lines of work, such as diagnostics, building teams, and critical thinking. This kind of transfer is more important than ever and is closely related to adaptability.

Will Visual Conferencing Save the Day for Small Business?
Success Performance Solutions
November 01, 2020
Executive time has become more precious. Companies have become more widely dispersed. Travel is more challenging than ever. As companies look to boost business productivity and manage costs, visual conferencing and online collaboration keep looking better and better. Fortunately, technology has evolved to the point where an employee working from home has the capability of being face-to-face with co-workers, bosses, customers, and vendors online – simultaneously – without ever hopping on a plane or sitting in traffic. According to the research firm Forrester, 34 million Americans are working from home at least part-time. If everyone who could work from home did work from home, it is estimated that the U.S. businesses would save an estimated $700 billion annually. As a result of technology and economic need, the number of employees working from home is expected to double before the end of the decade. This convergence of rising travel costs, unreliable air transportation, and falling “telepresence” costs will lead inevitably to a decline in business travel. That decline is coming at a time when the need to meet and collaborate is increasing, not decreasing. For all these reasons, I’m very pleased that my guest for this week’s show is J.W. Penland. J.W. is CEO at IOCOM, which just launched its revolutionary Visimeet technologies. Visimeet is a game-changer. It levels the already flattened playing field between small and large businesses and puts a leading-edge productivity tool onto the desktop of every employee and business owner. Tune in on Wednesday, August 11, 2010 at 11 AM EDT when J.W. Penland joins me to talk about how visual communication solutions will change the way we do business. Who should listen? Executives, small business owners, health care providers, recruiters, HR, entrepreneurs.

Unemployment and Income Inequality
Geeks Geezers Googlizationa
May 27, 2020
Unemployment in America is headline news in the U.S. As high as it is, Vinay Singh has real concerns that the actual rate of unemployment is significantly underreported. He questions how unemployment is tracked and more importantly that it misses the dark side of income inequality, social inequality, and ageism – exacerbated by under-employment, wage suppression, age discrimination and CEO compensation. He’s a passionate student and user of technology but concedes humans need to learn how to apply technology in a more human way. He implores recruiters and HR to stop asking inane and irrelevant interview questions (such as “if you were the first human on Mars, what would you do?”) and urges both companies and workers to take this pandemic crisis to reskill and upskill. Singh is the author of the Amazon best selling book “Your Future in Pieces.”

Hiring Right is Hardly a No-Brainer
Geeks Geezers Googlization
May 20, 2020
Hiring right is definitely not the “no-brainer” many HR and hiring managers think it is. They often allow conscious and unintended bias to cloud their judgment and predictable decision-making. The disappointing success rate of new hires (30 percent) over time confirms the poor choices many managers make. Our guest HireBrain CEO David Nason intends to change that through the use of neuroscience, probability science, and social science. He has the data and methodology to prove that even the commonly used situational interview questions offer zero predictive value. Worse, they often introduce significant negative impact. Tune in now to hear how HireBrain’s advanced interviewing methodology removes the guesswork and bias from hiring, shifting decision making from gut instinct to predictable evidence.

Success will not be measured the same way in the New Normal as it was just a few months ago. Hopefully that’s a good thing. Recovering from the pandemic stronger and better will require more grace, more compassion, more empathy, more humanity, according to our guest Julie Ann Sullivan. From interviews with over 60 C-Suite leaders and conversations with hundreds more who created thriving cultures and workplaces, she discovered four attributes these leaders all have in common. She published them in her new book Catalysts of Culture. (You’ll need to listen and/or read the book to learn what they are.) An important read before the pandemic crisis, it’s now an essential leadership guide for a successful reopening and relaunch of business in Age of Continuous Certainty.

Re-Imagining Leadership and Future of Work
Ira S Wolfe
April 30, 2020
As the pandemic curve flattens and businesses reopen, the “welcome back” for workers will be anything but normal. In fact, normal died and in its wake, it left a bountiful crop of uncertainty and confusion. Once familiar surroundings will seem at best alien and the workplace will be mostly inconvenient, frustrating, and even bizarre. The once unimaginable - “safe zones,” facial masks, temperature checks, social distancing, sneeze guard partitions, and even contact tracing apps - will blur the line between reality and science fiction. Does HR have a plan B? To help make sense of our “new business-as-UNusual,” I’ve invited 3 HR thought leaders - Lee Andrese (akathame), Mike Clarke (Gallup), and Lance (ERE/TLNT) to help reimagine the Future of HR, Leadership, and Work. We’re live on April 30 at 1:30 PM EDT on LinkedIn, YouTube, and Facebook.

They Didn’t Get Your Memo, Corporate Communication

Chances are that between emails, Zoom, Slack, text, and even phone, you’ve sent an important message to your employees that was missed or ignored. The information spigot is open. More than 560 billion emails are sent each year. One hundred billion of them are sent to employees. Communication is flowing full throttle but a lot of it falls on deaf ears. Cutting through all this noise is hard, even in normal times. So what is it that you need to do differently for your messages to be heard above all the noise? We’ve got the CEO of Guide Spark Keith Kitani, a corporate communication strategy expert, on our show today. And he’s ready to share answers to and new findings from his company’s research about corporate communication in the age of uncertainty.

Slingshot Your Recovery, Run Into the Chaos
Ira S Wolfe
April 28, 2020
Have you heard there’s been a massive reset? That normal is dead and it shall not return. Perry Marshall, one of the most in-demand business strategists in the world, joins me (Ira S Wolfe) on my next Livestream to discuss how to pivot and participate in what he calls the "Slingshot Recovery."

As the pandemic tsunami tide recedes, millions of people are stranded on the beach - naked and cold. They have unimaginable problems waiting to be solved. People and businesses are literally begging for solutions. Lost in the noise of chaos lies “kairos” and it’s doing quite well, thank you! Perry has a few words of advice for businesses and entrepreneurs asking "what's next?": Bring the naked towels and swimsuits. In plain speak: “unlimited opportunity” (or kairos) abounds if you can pull yourself away from Netflix for a few minutes.

No matter what else you have planned, you don’t want to miss this interview with Perry Marshall. Perry joins me on “The Crazy Shift Show.” Join us as we talk about ways you can emerge from the pandemic crisis better and stronger: Run Into The Chaos! The world you knew is gone. And it is not coming back. Stop, pivot, and run like your future depends on it - it does.

Do you have a plan to emerge from the pandemic crisis? A funny thing happened on the way to tomorrow. We found ourselves without a plan. Normalcy was suspended. Our world was knocked off its axis. But fortunately it keeps spinning...just a little faster than it did a few weeks ago. Now we need a plan to emerge. Overnight most of us found ourselves stuck in a world between reality and science fiction, crushing strategic plans and humbling (and even humiliating) our leaders. If you’re ready to ask the really tough questions about where we go from here, then you don’t want to miss my interview with Kathy Bowman Atkins, CEO/Co-Founder of The Lattitude Group. We talk about:

- Focus on coming out stronger!

- How uncertainty and volatility changes strategic planning.

- What skills must leaders have to navigate the future.

Your Employee Experience is All FCDD Up! | Season 4:004
Geeks, Geezers & Googlization Show
January 27, 2021
Employers have an opportunity to be heroes, not goats! Unfortunately, from pre-hire to departure in most organizations, the employee experience is all FCDD-up! The employee life cycle is filled with Frustration, Confusion, Disappointment, and Distraction. In a VUCA world, employee needs can shift in the blink of an eye. Employee engagement surveys are turning into the much-maligned annual performance review. Our guest Jason Cochran, CEO of iAspire urges employers to be practical, not surgical; to measure the rhythms and beats of employees, to measure what people will do, not what they say they will do. Through 20 years of research, he’s identified the “Four Principles of Connection.” Jason visits Geeks Geezers and Googlization Show to share how you can transform your company culture and make it your competitive advantage.
