Tom Morris


As career coaches and counselors, we're committed to helping our clients move forward in their careers. And as our industry moves into the future, we'll have to change some of what we do, how we do it, and why we do it because the coaching industry, like every other industry, will change and evolve.


Saturday, April 26, from 9 AM-10:30 AM Tom Morris will explore these and other ideas in his role as a  featured futurist presenter at the 2014 Career Thought Leaders Conference, "Framing the Future." The 3-day conference is being held at the Hyatt Regency Inner Harbor in Baltimore and offers seven featured programs, each with multiple presentations.  


"Each program begins with a futurist presentation. What's going to happen in 2 years, 3 years, 5 years, and more - information that we must know to prepare ourselves and our clients. Following the future are presentations on what's happening now - ideas, information, resources, samples, and thought-provoking conversation that we can use today to position ourselves and our clients for tomorrow." -  2014 Career Thought Leaders Conference Webpage 


What will change in the career coaching and lifelong career development industry? What will be new? What might actually stay the same? Join Tom as he explores the answers April 26, in Baltimore.

What are successful for-profit and not-for-profit organizations doing to recruit and retain valued talent and knowledge?


Here are 10 Recruiting and Retention Tips that I found helpful. Hope they're helpful for you, too.




Downsizings happen all the time. Our firm has worked with firms, organizations and industries that have merged, dissolved, reduced, reorganized or just developed new products and services that needed a different talent mix or skill set than the one they had. We've seen it done well, and we've seen - and heard about - it being done poorly. Unfortunately, it's too often done poorly, especially if we look at longer-term effects.


We've also had the opportunity to work with firms, organizations and agencies that reorganize, reduce, refocus and recommit in a way that benefits the organization, its employees and stakeholders. How do they do it? Click here to find out.
