Here in the US, this is a traditional week of thanks. For me, it is my favorite time of the year. I love the general energy around the holidays. I am energized by the spirit of thanks. I choose to ignore the commercialism and focus on the personal reflection. I am especially thankful for one aspect of my job— I get to work on our HR Book Club. I know what you’re thinking, “ someone pays you to read, review, work with authors, and share their books? Really?” Yes, yes they do, and I love it! It is by far the most fun part of my job. I get to meet really neat people who have a passion for writing and sharing their ideas. Sweet gig right? I agree. I hold on to it dearly, I take it very seriously, and I am thankful for it.
Recently I have had the absolute joy of working with Judy Umlas, author of The Power of Acknowledgment and Grateful Leadership: Using the Power of Acknowledgement to Engage All of Your People and Achieve Superior Results. Judy is passionate about her message and her attitude is absolutely contagious. She even recently wrote a book for kids, You’re Totally Awesome! The Power of Acknowledgment for Kids. I am thankful for Judy, her passion, her mission, and her sharing. Judy has been kind enough to share two chapters from Grateful Leadership in our book club. You can get those chapters here. If you would like to buy your own copy, visit Judy’s website and use the discount code: Grateful2013.
I’ve also recently gotten to know Alysse Metzler. I first “met” Alysse on Top Recruiter Season 1 where she was a feisty competitor. I love her moxie. This year, she returned as a judge, and she was just as fierce. Alysse has written an awesome book, The Recruiting Snitch: Recruiting Secrets to Help Land Your Dream Job. This book is a super quick read and a must have for any job seeker. Since Alysse is also AWESOME, she made our Book Club. Great news for you! Download your free chapter here. Alysse, thank you for sharing this insight and letting the rest of us know what you guys (recruiters) are thinking. The information in this book is invaluable.
So, in parting, I am thankful for determined authors, the messages they are willing to share, all you readers, and the opportunity to be a part of it all. I hope you will take the time to download the chapters, and I hope you will find them as impactful as I have.
What part of your job are you most thankful for?
