Let me tell you a story about a beleaguered HR professional who recently called me about doing a compliance training for her law firm. She works at a firm of 350 people but there is only one HR person (her) and one IT director to manage all of the firm’s HR and IT needs. That’s it. Two people.

(He actually used to be a bad guy and now, jiu-jitsu-style, he is using his mad skills against the enemy.) I suggest you watch the 5-minute video that Kevin posts in this blog.
