Seems I’m doing more podcasts than writing lately. I think it’s because I’ve been writing for almost 10 years about engagement, rewards, incentives, recognition and just about anything connected to influencing behavior in an organization. It gets tough to continue to find new things to say. It’s almost as tough as seeing someone write a doppelganger post on a subject you wrote 5 years ago that gets high praise and all it really does is confirm no one read your post.
Which is one reason I started the whole podcast thing – to break up the monotony on my end and give you all something new and different. And it is going extremely well. I love connecting with friends and people I didn’t know before the podcast (and who are now friends.) And the conversations have been enlightening and fun.
For those who haven’t seen the original post, my podcast features volunteers who want to talk about things they wish they had known earlier in their careers that might have made a difference in their career choice, their job search, their overall approach to paying their bills. The input from the guests has been great: networking, creating your own job and now – with friend Charlie Judy – the idea of not getting locked into the idea that you need to simply find a job – but you can look more broadly and find a career.
