In just under two months, we’ll ditch this winter snow and bask in the warm sunshine of Orlando, FL for HCI’s annual Human Capital Summit. By now you’ve probably heard about the Summit theme: Building Successful and Adaptive Talent Management in a VUCA Environment (VUCA – describes an environment characterized by: Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, and Ambiguity); and you’ve also started monitoring the list of rock-star keynotes as it continues to grow each week.

And then, on occasion, Mr. Sun hides himself behind clouds, the temperature drops, and the friendly waves become a lot faster and a lot more sinister. Suddenly, you’ve got to move.
How clever – and simple – the act of taking something and repurposing it can be. I learn this lesson repeatedly on Pinterest (rubber door mats for wall art – say what?!), but recently had the chance to witness it firsthand, too. I can’t help but think that the lessons gleaned from such experiences have more to do with the topic of successful employee development than what people may think.
