In November, (the Cincinnati Roundtable) decided to talk about the newest HR/business catchphrase – Disruption! It’s everywhere you look, and people are strongly encouraging disruption in any manner possible. It’s ironic that we work in organizations that are primarily risk averse and hesitant to change even in the slightest bit, yet we want to be disruptive.
As another year comes to an end, I’ve seen sentiments ranging from “good riddance” to “thank goodness that’s over.” We have been surrounded by news of violence, turmoil, political upheaval, personal failure, on-going war and massive natural disasters. That isn’t the only news about what is going on, but it’s all that fills the airwaves and social media. This dark approach can make these days seem difficult and even impossible to face. Throw on top of this the real personal challenges people face.
I’m sure you’ve heard a great number of reviews about this book, HROnPurpose by Steve Browne (@sbrownehr). I decided to make this my first book to read for the HRBook Review Spot on my blog. I’d started a few months ago when I originally got the book at SHRM17, but life got in the way and I didn’t finish it completely. So for the last HRJazzy blog post of 2017 let’s jump intoÂ HROnPurpose. 1 – Starting with the obvious, Steve Browne is awesome!
Just changed to regular snow here in NW Bexar. Much better than ice. Precip is light and will end this PM. Just plain cold tonight low 20's. Sun tomorrow will get us above freezing but the warm stuff will wait for the weekend.
Speculation time is up. Time to call it out loud. Arctic blast will hit Tuesday. Temps will drop below freezing (32°) most areas including SA. Precipitation will be involved either frozen (sleet) or freezing (ice).
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
