What is HR?

“Human Resource Management is the term generally applied to those activities concerning the management of people.” 

This definition of HR was found in a textbook. A textbook that I highly recommend, if you are looking to obtain a solid foundation in HR. The book is Human Resource Management by Robert L. Mathis and John H. Jackson. At first, I was critical of this definition because of how vague it was, but then I realized the necessity for vagueness. Despite, how long Human Resources has been around as an industry and profession, we are still figuring out who exactly we are within the organizations we serve.

Three Reasons Busy Professionals Should Consider Qigong

As an HR Practitioner obsessed with the dilemma surrounding the disengagement of workforces within organizations. I have been on a quest to find answers. It was on this quest that I discovered Qigong (pronounced chee-gong). See this quest began from a practical professional place but what I quickly found was that it was an extremely personal journey. My obsession with disengagement came from a place of desperation. I wanted to know the answers in hopes to avoid my own personal disengagement. I had begun establishing a track record of personally disengaging from workplaces and now that I was out on my own. I had no employer to blame for my unhappiness or level of satisfaction, that blame could only go one place on me.

I’ve come to the conclusion that solving disengagement, is more about healing individuals, establishing a new definition of work-life balance and embracing the magic. But before I lose you, this post is not going to dive into that heavy topic. I’d like to first introduce you to Qigong from a practical professional place just like how I began this whole journey.

The One Giveaway That You Are Still A Work In Progress


This October marks the five-year anniversary of the start of my entrepreneurial adventure. I could have never imagined the magnitude of this journey when it began. See this adventure is much more than just building a business (which is huge in itself), see it was the start of some much needed inner work. Inside of me, there was some serious healing to do, years of emotional trauma piled on by the damaging distraction of constant high professional demands. This mixture left me completely disconnected and disengaged. I found myself wandering through the days questioning if I was worth anything at all. I was convinced professional aspirations, even at times, life aspirations were pointless.

Trust Your Gut: It’s Your Intuitive Guidance

When it comes to the world of business, logic is a must. We can’t make decisions strictly off of feelings, we need facts, data, and spreadsheets. But I guess my question to you is, why can’t we make decisions off of feelings? Sure, I get it, it’s massively uncomfortable. The amount of risk seems daunting because there isn’t logic to make the decision safe. However, if we go back through history, I am pretty sure the game changers in this world made a decision based off of a feeling.

5 Ways to Respond to Stress with Yin

For most, work and stress go hand in hand. Stress itself is not bad. Stress in extreme doses on a consistent basis is when the problems begin. And since stress is commonly directly tied to our work, we compensate by taking care of ourselves less and tell ourselves to just push through. Resulting in a life set on the constant setting of survival mode.  A life that isn’t much fun to live.
