It seems we can’t find what you’re looking for. Perhaps searching can help.
Discernment… A word not often used today – the ability to distinguish or decipher differences.
Wisdom can be found in abundance in a 7 year old and lacking totally in a 70 year old… so wisdom is not age nor knowledge dependent.
Principles will unite people who can’t even speak the same language… they are universal and are just as applicable to a young child as they are to the greatest of great grandparents.
The first 2 of the 3 won’t be found in ‘higher education’ though when well learned they do provide for a higher level of insight and usually a better lifestyle – the 3rd may, or may not, be taught in some institutes of higher education. Seeking knowledge does not need any of these 3 to gain as much knowledge as desired — yet without which one could very well end up being more of a foolish intellect than a wise as well as knowledgeable person. Some people will have 1 or 2 of these traits, and we would find the best and well-rounded managers and leaders learning and adding to all three.
Insights into all 3 are provided in our content and it is our hope you can learn not only from our content but add to all 3 traits for yourself as well.

The HRIS World
There is no doubt that knowledge is power – one only needs look around to see those who limit themselves by being unavailable for knowledge compared to those that do make themselves available to understand that knowledge is indeed power. It creates a difference, creates new directions, opens doors previously closed, even brings a new perspective to something previously known but perhaps not as thoroughly.
Learning is one of the means as well as ways of increasing knowledge — and unless the teacher is instructing from original documents, or original source documents, then the teacher is passing along previously formed views, thoughts, even mistakes onto their students. Eventually, after a few decades, society in general has been formed from everything they have learned as well as experienced. Unless each person is verifying, assessing, questioning, even challenging what they know, then there are no corrective actions being made to be sure society in general is heading in a positive, meaningful, fulfilling as well as abundant way.
Besides our offerings from Udemy that are focused on the needs of those in our industry, we provide content that shares the learning experiences of our contributors as well as their findings. Our Speaker Interview Series gets into what provided the genesis of the speaker’s ideas as well as what they are planning and thinking for tomorrow. We are on a constant search for new information, new data, new learning materials, new technology and even a new hamburger joint or coffee shop that will help you absorb all this in. Learning is a constant thing, not a something thing — and on so many different levels. We’ll see what we can do to keep up for you!
The HRIS World aims to provide a space to learn how to think, as opposed what to think; for most, this will require an uncomfortable yet rewarding change.
The biggest mistake we see in the industry today is the approach to solving problems — we can’t solve the problems we created with the same thinking we used to create them in the first place. Along with this we see a constant (and thankfully not consistent) distortion between ways and means, a failure in learning how to think resulting from our life-long expectation of being taught what to think, as well as an abandonment of discernment, wisdom, and principles in the favor of focusing only on pursing an ever increasing amount of knowledge.
To that last point we ask, “What good is it to have all this knowledge without something upon which to sharpen it? Are we not becoming human encyclopedias and human fact books instead of a species of collaborating people who sharpen our wits not just on the mantle of knowledge but on that of discernment, principles, and wisdom as well?”
Our approach to innovation is not to pursue technology as there are plenty already doing so — our approach to innovation is to pursue the character, thinking, and principles of us, the people of the industry. Least we become solely dependent on the next best thing to come along to tell us what to think and do… again…
We follow a set of principles that have weathered several technology changes, have been used for many generations — we aim to share these principles in the fulfillment of our mission. Our content, services and sharing will provide these and more principles during the course of fulfilling our mission and vision.
We agree that knowledge is power but what is in that power driving the knowledge? Like any batch of gasoline (or petro), if there are impurities within it then the engine (knowledge) is going to sputter and could sustain damage. With the right sediment or consistent use of fuel that is impure, that engine becomes useless. So it is with information – questions provide reach, direction, opens doors, makes people think — the right questions can bring a full room to a hush… We don’t believe we will be hushing a lot of rooms, but a few at the right moment will be a good sign.
Besides questioning the means and ends to how everything is being approached and managed, we will also be humbly seeking out those that have the respect and honor of those that have already started everyone thinking. All this to get everyone to think about what they are doing and what they are believing. We are here to raise the bar of focus, integrity, quality, reach, learning and discernment, as we noted in our Mission Statement and is worth repeating here…
Being uncomfortable can be a comforting place to be as long as we are reaching and and have made ourselves available to learn… Learning requires testing of beliefs, assumptions, and principles. There are some things that just never change and there is a reason why – they have just made themselves unavailable to learn, or they haven’t learned the principles that will do them well. By remaining focused on the principles what will do most people well, we fully believe we can provide you, our audience, enough knowledge and discernment to make what you do count.
Our Mission: To provide the right information and services to guide our audience into establishing well-informed and discerning decisions which will produce quality work, will protect the focus of projects and will produce effective solutions.
To fulfill our vision for you to be heard, for you to be recognized, and for you to know what will affect your work so you can plan accordingly is a tall order. which is good as we thrive on challenges… With a shrinking workforce, a high rate of change with technology, a challenging rate of education, and battling a constant shift of many well-meaning leaders and decision makers who are placing humans as a means to accomplishing a goal and not as the ends means one thing…
An opportunity to step up and assist by providing information and principles that work no matter what the environment.
By focusing on the tools you have at your disposal as a means not an ends, we believe we can provide you the clarity and the thought process needed to be successful at your work. No one has ever sharpened a knife on a sponge which means to produce that edge everyone wants means there are going to be times of challenges for all of us… period… Our content and our services focuses on what works for an effective workforce which will in turn lead to a sustained organization.
We will challenge everyone’s thinking — including yours, including our own. We simply cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them (if this sounds familiar, Albert Einstein noted this more than 70 years ago). and we believe you are actively seeking new ways of how to think as opposed to what to think… Being uncomfortable can be a comforting place to be as long as we are reaching and learning… That learning will require testing of beliefs, assumptions and principles. There are some things that just never change and there is a reason why.
By remaining focused on these principles, we fully believe we can provide you, our audience, enough knowledge and discernment to make what you do count.
