Welcome to issue #8 of The Digital HR Leader...

Sometimes you can push yourself a little too far. That was my predicament as the virus I developed over the Easter weekend finally got the better of me and meant that I had to miss the second day of the PAFOW conference in London last week. Fortunately, delegates were left in the more than capable hands of Al Adamsen and from what I’ve heard since the event went down a storm. I’m glad to say that I am now almost restored to full health and would like to thank the many people who took the time to send me get well messages.
What’s in store for May: Vegas, Copenhagen and something brand spanking new!
This week I’d like to share three exciting things happening in May. Firstly, I’ll be heading over to Las Vegas for the 
third UNLEASH America show where I’ll be speaking and moderating the Smart Data track on 14-15 May. The week after on the 21 May I’ll be delivering the opening keynote at HRtechX in Copenhagen, which promises to be the largest show on HR tech in the Nordics in 2019. Please click here and use my code DG25 for a 25% discount on HRtechX tickets.
Finally, the 14th May will also see the launch of
 my brand spanking new podcast – Digital HR Leaderswhere I’ll be speaking to a range of senior HR leaders who are leading the charge for a data-driven and digital HR agenda. Regarding the Podcast, I’d be grateful if i) you could read my article previewing the show, ii) watch the video trailer, iii) subscribe to the podcast, iv) in the comments section of the article let me know who’d you like me to interview on the show, and v) please share the article with your friends, colleagues and network.
There are some terrific articles this week…
This week sees a particularly strong quintet of articles. From the myHRfuture stable itself, Ian Bailie provides a great analysis on how artificial intelligence is disrupting HR before Jonathan Ferrar outlines seven questions people analytics leaders should be asking themselves to ensure they’re on the right path to success – 
you can also take this survey too. The three third party articles are all thoroughbreds too. First, Adam Grant explains how our strengths can sometimes become our greatest weaknesses. Then Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic outlines three factors that make some leaders more committed to diversity than others. Finally, Josh Bersin provides his latest analysis describing the evolution of employee engagement – from feedback to action.

Content we're loving, this week...
“Success doesn’t come from playing to your strengths. It comes from playing your strengths in the right situations.” While the notion of playing to our strengths has gained some real momentum, what is often overlooked is when should people do what they do best?.
