Juniper Networks was founded on innovation and it continues to run deep in our DNA today. We believe in the value of an open network, and this means more than just the technology we create. Juniper also recognizes the value of open people-networks. This idea is explored in the following video with our esteemed partner, Rob Cross.

An Interview with HR & Leadership Icon, Dave Ulrich

by Juniper Employee ‎09-24-2012 09:11 AM - edited ‎09-24-2012 09:14 AM

I recently had the opportunity to attend a conference led by some of the luminary business minds in Human Resources via the RBL Group. Originally another colleague was intended for the spot but had to bow out. Making good on the quote, “Opportunities are never lost; someone will take the one you miss,” I was ecstatic to be asked to fill in. I believe that ‘seize the opportunity’ attitude helped me to reap as much as possible from the experience. And it was quite a transformative experience.

 

One of the not-to-be-taken-for-granted opportunities was interviewing Dave Ulrich for the Life at Juniper blog. Dave is an HR icon. He has been ranked as both the #1 most influential person in HR and the #1 most influential international thought leader in HR several times by HR Magazine. Dave also has been named one of the 10 most innovative and creative thinkers by Fast Company, ranked as the #1 management educator and guru by Business Week and listed in Forbes as one of the “world’s top five” business coaches. Not to mention being an all around really nice guy.

 

Please enjoy reading the thoughts Dave was kind enough to share.

Deceptively Simple Questions

Where do you work? What are you working on? Who do you work with?

 

These questions are often bandied about at cocktail parties as simple conversation-starters. Yet, they’re really rather probing. How often have you stopped to reflect and really consider: Where DO I work? What AM I working on?

 

Similarly, Patrick Lencioni writes about six critical but deceptively simple questions in his latest book, The Advantage. The exercise is part of a model that includes four disciplines to achieve organizational health.

People First.

Recently I had the professional development opportunity to attend the annual SHRM conference, or the Society for Human Resource Management. It was a global gathering of over 13,000 HR professionals with heavy-hitting headliners including Condoleezza Rice, Malcolm Gladwell, Jim Collins and Tom Brokaw. I left feeling inspired and enlightened but most importantly, armed with provocative new approaches to solving some of the tough challenges sitting back on my desk.

Full disclosure right up front. I'm a former marketing gal and now an HR gal. I'm clearly going to be biased in my opinions about Juniper and will most definitely espouse the virtues of the company and how great it is to work here. But truth be told, it's honestly how I feel about Juniper. This really IS where I can do my best work.
