Paul recently returned from the International Coaching and Leadership Forum (ICLF) in Boston where he joined other Fellows of the Institute of Coaching (IoC) in this world-class professional development and networking event. The forum was also attended by several successful CEOs who shared insights into their own experiences with coaching and described how coaching had benefitted them and their organizations.

UPOP 2017. Paul just finished up another year (his 16th) as a mentor / instructor for the MIT UPOP Program, which provides sophomores with training in business-related skills not typically included in the regular MIT curriculum. His presentation on Engineering Team Creativity (in its second year) was well received by students and mentors.
Tonight Paul will be joining colleagues from Egon Zehnder, Russell Reynolds, and other search firms at the Sloan School of Management’s panel discussion on Executive Search. He will be advising Executive MBA students on the value of building and maintaining relationships with recruiters. He will also discuss career opportunities in the field of analytics and the qualifications companies are seeking.
As part of their series of podcast interviews with thought leaders in HR and People Analytics, hiQ Labs, an award-winning provider of enterprise predictive people analytics technologies, just released an interview with Paul Edelman. Paul discusses how to think analytically about recruiting and hiring top talent, and gives tips specifically on how to build your People Analytics team. To hear Paul’s insights, listen below.
Paul attended hiQ’s Elevate & Elevation Awards event this week past week (Oct 26), where he joined a world-class lineup of experts sharing real-world case studies and best practices on how to use data to make more informed and objective people decisions. He was also the lucky winner of the champagne door prize! Here he is with his winnings along with Joel Quintela, CEO of Quintela.io (left) and David Nershi, SIOP Executive Director (center).
Last week Paul, a member of the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP), attended the 12th Annual SIOP Leading Edge Consortium in Atlanta. The conference was headed by Alexis Fink , Director of Talent Intelligence Analytics at Intel. This year the conference theme was “Talent Analytics: Data Science to Drive People Decisions and Business Impact.”
UPOP 2016. Paul’s 15th year as a mentor / instructor for the MIT UPOP Program, which provides sophomores with training in business-related skills not typically included in the regular MIT curriculum. Topics covered include leadership, teamwork, group decision making, negotiation, agile project management, and effective presentation skills. This year marked the debut of a new module called “Engineering Team Creativity,” designed by Paul and Rich Kremsdorf.
This module presented a process incorporating five tools students can use to engineer their team’s processes to generate enhanced creativity and effectiveness, while making participation more satisfying. Teams used these methods to work on their weeklong project. They successfully experienced making conscious decisions about the processes they use to perform their work and how they were able to “engineer” their processes to produce more creative and productive outcomes.
