Paul Hebert HR, Organizational Development, Paul Hebert, SHRM

Well… not really. What Ms. Clinton said – I surmised from the twitter stream because my flight was delayed and I couldn’t make it to her chat – was “follow the trend lines not the headlines.”  It must have resonated with a few folks because I saw it retweeted quite a bit.  That is a very, very important statement.
