Best Practices Networking

  1. 1. Best Practices Networking “ Never become so much of an expert that you stop gaining expertise . View life as a continuous learning experience .” - Denis Waitley.
  2. 2. Purpose <ul><li>I have created this short presentation as an opportunity for those seeking and/or sharing best practices to better understand some of my methodologies, approaches to various issues/programming </li></ul><ul><li>Perhaps it will spark a new idea for you or you may identify an opportunity for me to better develop an idea or program – either way it’s an opportunity to learn and collaborate </li></ul>
  3. 3. Living Document <ul><li>I intend to continue to add information I believe is relevant and can be of value to other HR Practitioners </li></ul><ul><li>If you review and have any questions, recommendations, please contact me or send me an invitation through LinkedIn </li></ul>
  4. 4. Now- Let’s Start Sharing & Learning
  5. 5. Leadership Philosophy <ul><li>“ We are only as successful as those that we serve – if they succeed, then we succeed – if they fail then we failed.” </li></ul><ul><li>“ We learn more from our failures than our successes “ </li></ul><ul><li>-Dave Longaberger </li></ul>
  6. 6. MacGyver and the Stockdale Paradox <ul><li>I think we need a new moniker to replace the “Out of the Box Thinker” phrase </li></ul><ul><li>First, I don’t really remember what was in “The Box” </li></ul><ul><li>Second, if someone is still operating in the box, they’re opportunities are limited </li></ul><ul><li>So what are some thing we need to do to contribute to the success of our organization as well as our own growth and development? </li></ul>
  7. 7. MacGyver and the Stockdale Paradox <ul><li>If you’re unfamiliar with MacGyver, Google it to get up to speed: http:// </li></ul><ul><li>– MacGyver was a fictional television character who was the ultimate troubleshooter who was always able to solve complex problems with everyday materials he found on hand, along with his ever-present duct tape and Swiss Army Knife. </li></ul>
  8. 8. MacGyver and the Stockdale Paradox <ul><li>Vice Admiral James Bond Stockdale (December 23, 1923 – July 5, 2005) was one of the most highly decorated officers in the history of the United States Navy. </li></ul><ul><li>While Commander of Carrier Air Wing 16 aboard the carrier USS  Oriskany  (CV-34) , he was shot down over enemy territory on September 9, 1965. Stockdale was the highest-ranking naval officer held as a prisoner of war in Vietnam. </li></ul>
  9. 9. MacGyver and the Stockdale Paradox <ul><li>In a business book by James C. Collins called Good to Great , Collins writes about a conversation he had with Stockdale regarding his coping strategy during his period in the Vietnamese POW camp. </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;I never lost faith in the end of the story, I never doubted not only that I would get out, but also that I would prevail in the end and turn the experience into the defining event of my life, which, in retrospect, I would not trade.&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>When Collins asked who didn't make it out of Vietnam, Stockdale replied: &quot;Oh, that’s easy, the optimists. Oh, they were the ones who said, 'We're going to be out by Christmas.' And Christmas would come, and Christmas would go. Then they'd say, 'We're going to be out by Easter.' And Easter would come, and Easter would go. And then Thanksgiving, and then it would be Christmas again. And they died of a broken heart.&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>Stockdale then added: &quot;This is a very important lesson. You must never confuse faith that you will prevail in the end—which you can never afford to lose—with the discipline to confront the most brutal facts of your current reality, whatever they might be.” </li></ul>
  10. 10. The Point <ul><li>Today more than ever we need to be business partners and excellent troubleshooters able to deal with various forms of adversity </li></ul><ul><li>It is not only critical to the success of your organization but to your individual growth and development </li></ul><ul><li>Within our field we might want to call ourselves “MacGyver HR Practitioners” who like Vice Admiral Stockdale, retain faith that we can prevail to greatness in the end, while retaining the discipline to confront the sometimes brutal facts of our current reality. </li></ul>
