Tagged I was…

I have been tagged by Ann Bares, who has a wonderful compensation related blog. Compensation Force is one of the first 'business related' blog I started to read regularly.

The rules:
• Link to the person who tagged you.
• Post the rules on your blog.
• Share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself.
• Tag at least three people at the end of your post and link to their blogs.
• Let each person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

So here are my 6 truths and no lie:
• My native language is French. I’m also fluent in English and Spanish. I’ve been studying Chinese/Mandarin on and off for the past 3 years but the wall is higher than I expected!
• I have a second degree black belt in karate. I have never had to use this skill in a business meeting… yet.
• I love to travel. Last year, while canoe camping in the middle of the jungle in Peru, I was attacked by two wild boars. In a prior jungle trip it’s an alligator that almost got me for breakfast.
• I play piano when I get to spend some time at home.
• My favorite book is the Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas. I have read most of his books and enjoyed each of them, but this is my favorite.
• As my client figured out today, I can easily be bribed with donuts, chocolate and M&Ms…

Here are some blogs I read regularly, in no particular order:

Think IT Services by Jeff Kaplan
Passion, People and Principles by David Maister
The HR Capitali$t by Kris Dunn
Incentive Intelligence by Paul Hebert
The Happy Burro Blog by Joe Raasch

And of course, don't forget to visit Compensation Force.
