The difference between reading my Google Reader and not reading my Google Reader is learning. Bottom line: I don't learn if I don't read.
I'd like to call your attention to a few posts that I keep at arms length and acknowledge Team Building is For Suckers for adding a no-holds-barred 25 cent shot of caffeine to my day each and every time I read a post:

The Career Encouragement Blog: HR referred me to the EAP - what does that mean?
Compensation Force: Please Strike the Word "Poor" From All Performance Management Materials
The HR Capitalist: What's the Difference Between An Employee Who "Meets" and One Who "Exceeds"
