It’s an interesting dichotomy that as our world continues to get more interconnected, the number of human interactions we have seems to wane. Next time you’re at a restaurant, I encourage you to people-watch for five minutes and count how many people are not glued to their smartphones. Additionally, I will be the first to admit that I play more strangers on Words with Friends than people I actually know – which I do enjoy, but the irony is not lost on me.
Most of us understand that to be successful in leadership, we need to be aware of what and how we communicate. Of ensuring that we actively listen to what those around us are saying, and sometimes what they're not saying. And yet, how many of us are also mindful of how we show up in these moments, of how present and engaged we are in those conversations with those we lead?

Do you ever get that slightly depressed feeling following a big event? I’ve heard this happens to brides following their wedding so frequently that it even has a technical term - “postnuptial depression.” As we come to the conclusion of HCI’s 2013 Summit I’m experiencing a little bit of my own version of this.

The second day of the 8th annual HCI Summit is off to a fantastic start. We were treated to a keynote from Colleen McCreary, Chief People Officer at Zynga. McCreary shared the highs and lows of a young, energetic company and their talent challenges. For Zynga to keep their smart talent, they had to have leaders keep their focus on talent from the very beginning – the CEO challenged McCreary to ensure leaders spent 20% of their time on talent building. No matter the threats and changes, McCreary was always able to go back to that vision.
Next up after McCreary, Liz Wiseman, author of Multipliers, gave an energetic presentation of her findings that stemmed from the question, why do some leaders get more from their people and others don’t? Turns out that multiplier leaders don’t just get more from their people, they get two times more intelligence from their people for FREE. How?
The first day of HCI’s 8th annual Human Capital Summit began with a keynote from best-selling author and thought leader Dan Pink. Pink looked out at the packed house of human capital attendees and promptly convinced them they were all in sales. At some point in everyone’s day, he concluded, there are times when you must convince someone else to part with something they hold dear—it might be time, money, attention, engagement, etc.
What? Ugh, not sales.
