in context communication

last year i got my new year’s cards out in february, so i figure i’m doing pretty good by getting this summary out in mid-january.

the inspiration for this post was HR bartender’s the best of HRB—2011 edition and my need to consider the focus of this blog in 2012. when i reviewed the top posts for the year, i saw that they could be clumped into three broad categories: interviews with those who are doing the work (the free-ranging conversations series), commentaries on research and reports, and insights on current trends and effective communication practices. knowing that, i plan to focus on these categories in 2012 and dispense with less popular pieces, such as the wellness digest. i’ll continue highlighting my favorite reads in context’s monthly e-newsletter, so subscribe if you liked the digest.

if i’m reading the tea leaves wrong and there are areas you’d like me to focus on or continue with, let me know in the comments.

happy new year!
