I wish I had more time for reading just as I wish I had more time for writing. Actually, for that matter, I wish I had more time for just about everything. (Don’t we all?) I spent time last night reading various posts on Performance I Create. The purpose of this post is to introduce anyone who might be unfamiliar with the site and highlight a random post sampling. They’ve perfected the art of capturing my attention and I hope it is the same for you.
Capturing My Attention
I could restate the obvious about the amount of information available and the large number of blogs (various blogs for a variety of topics) online; however, I assume – if you are reading this post – you realize what I just mentioned.
So, if there is a lot of information out there, what makes one come back over-and-over to one particular blog?
My answer differs from yours as yours differs from someone else. For me, several indicators shape my decision to return to a site:
- Author Information
- Social Connection
Performance I Create
My first impression of Performance I Create was not a single post or anything that I mentioned in the bulleted list above. What was it? It was the name and the impact the name has on the site. Yes, I know bloggers should pay close attention to the chosen name, but something about the name struck a proverbial chord within me.
I’ve always considered myself a creator. I’ve created my own super heroes, images, stories, etc. and enjoy the creation process. Creating is something that makes my inner flame radiate as brightly as the sun. It’s where I can be “in the zone” and make the most impact.
As an HR blog, performance is a proper topic. It fits.
The creators (there’s that word again) of Performance I Create could have easily called it I Create Performance and that would have worked, but they didn’t do this. Instead, they reversed the wording to create (there’s that word again!) Performance I Create.
Same words – different spin. It works!
In their own words:
Performance I Create is a contributor designed blog for professionals to share their knowledge and experience about improving performance and productivity through human performance improvement, training/learning and development, process improvement, instructional design, human resources, communication, social media, leadership, or productivity.
The 100 and the 1000
It was my honor to have a post appear on Performance I Create back in May.
The post began:
We are a number. We are a filled vacancy within XYZ department. We are a statistic. We are an expense. We are assigned these – and many more – labels during the course employment. And, when you think about it, all of the preceding is true when it comes to our position in any business.
The question is: Would these apply to a company of 100 equally as it would to a company of 1,000?
