What to follow on substack

If you’re like me, you probably get invited to follow a lot of newsletters. I thought I’d share a list of those that I (very happily) follow:

Andrew Marrit’s “Empirical HR” is a must read for its combination of insight, wit and the occasional dive into extreme detail and science. I love it. You can find it here: http://www.empiricalhr.com/

“From Data to Action” is the LI newsletter of Serena H. Huang, Ph.D. It has a practical focus on turning data into action through great people analytics. https://buff.ly/3IC6FeE

“The Element of Inclusion” by Dr. Jonathan Ashong-Lamptey is one of the longest running DEI podcasts / newsletters. It has a to-the-point style and a focus on supporting leaders through evidence based inclusion. You can find it here: https://www.linkedin.com/newsletters/from-data-to-action-6865733107904073729/

My colleague Abhishek Mittal (now at Google) has a great newsletter called “HRHeadStart”. He says it’s aimed at “young HR professionals and students” but I learn an awful lot from it on topics like skills, talent, and analytics. It’s here: https://www.hrheadstart.xyz/

Rita McGrath, author and professor at Columbia Business School, uses her “Thought Sparks” newsletter on substack to share her ideas on strategy, innovation, and growth. Highly recommended: https://thoughtsparks.substack.com/

“Make Work Better” by Bruce Daisley combines humour and insight and is bravely focused on “making hybrid working hum”. Find it here: https://makeworkbetter.substack.com/

Colin Newlyn provides a unique perspective on the world of work through his “The Decrapify Work Not-Newsletter”. Highly recommended for challenging your thinking; it’s here: https://decrapifywork.substack.com/

David Green’s “Data Driven HR Monthly” is the most comprehensive collection of people analytics resources on the planet, carefully selected and curated every month. I expect you already follow it: https://www.linkedin.com/newsletters/data-driven-hr-monthly-6793421002836590592/

If you’re interested in psychological safety, then Tom Geraghty’s newsletter has the mission of “making the world of work a better, safer, more inclusive and equitable place.” It’s always interesting and includes a weekly poem. You can sign up here: https://www.psychsafety.co.uk/psychological-safety-newsletter/

Of course, the main purpose of this post is to plug my own newsletter. I post it here and send it out by email, but I’ve now put it on substack too. It’s quarterly and I share the very best 3-4 EX articles I’ve come across in the last few months. The idea is to save you time scrolling through LI and twitter. It’s here: https://nicklynnphd.substack.com/

I hope you enjoy some / all of these.

Which others would be on your list?
