About a year ago, I was invited by Victorio Milian to share my thoughts on his Put Up or Shut Up Challenge. Here are the main goals I had for 2010.
- Develop more collaborative projects via upstartHR
- Work with my local SHRM chapter to be the BEST at what we do
- Help HR pros everywhere get through their certification process andÂ have awesome careers
So, how did it go?
2010 was, simply put, an amazing year. Here’s how I was able to hit those goals:
- Helped grow Project:Social
- Donated hundreds of dollars to charity
- Developed HRevolution further-reached a larger audience and pulled moreÂ people into the movement
- Gathered almost 500 blog subscribers
- Continued RocketHR and planning to unveil a new tool soon that will help make itÂ a more powerful value add for our chapter.
- Stepping into Social MediaÂ Director position with NASHRM and bringing on a forward thinking genius to assist
- Developed community for over 200 SHRM volunteer leaders to connect and shareÂ ideas
- Sold my hundredth Rock the PHR study guide
- Wrote monthly newsletters to overÂ 200 email subscribers
So with all that fun stuff in the history books, what about 2011?
Put Up or Shut Up in 2011
This year I’ll have a little different focus.
- Developing my HR career
- Connecting with HR and business leaders
- Bringing in more bloggers
It looks like it’s all about me. But it’s not. Really. :-) See, #1 isÂ so I will be able to speak more credibly and write better content onÂ the blog, which provides more information for everyone else out there.Â Eric Winegardner told me to move up in HR, not out. Working on that.
#2 is so I can help those leaders connect with each other, eliminatingÂ duplicated effort and creating this massive brainstorming across theÂ nation. I realized that even though I (and others) have developed someÂ amazing tools for those leaders, they are useless if they don’t knowÂ about them.
#3 is so I can help grow the online HR communityÂ exponentially. Kind of like I talk about with Project:Social-the moreÂ people we have actively engaged in the online HR community, the moreÂ organic outreach we have.
But I need a little help
I learned quickly that I can’t do these things alone.Â #1 is in my hands, but if you know of events I can attend to help meÂ continue growing professionally, I would be glad to hear about them!
If you want to help withÂ #2, then just introduce me to someone who you think I could help. OrÂ introduce someone to me, my blog, or another resource I have created.
Finally, #3 is going to take some commitment from others, but thatÂ won’t stop me from giving everything I have to make it happen. If youÂ have something to say but don’t know how to get it out there, reachÂ out to me. I have helped dozens of people start blogs to share theirÂ voices with the world.
This upcoming year is going to be amazing. HelpÂ me make it the best one yet!
