Welcome to my Career Development, Career Management, and HR Blog

Thanks for stopping by. As you probably guessed, my first name is Helen. I have a Ph.D. or doctorate in Psychology and my last name starts with an O … Not the most original way to choose an URL but drheleno.ca was available. There are times when I’m speaking with someone and I don’t have a card and neither of us has a pen and paper (or wants to pull out a phone) so I tell them they can find me under drheleno.ca and this takes them to my I/O Advisory Services website. For a while, this blog was independent of the main website.

Ask Dr. Helen About Career and HR Issues

My graduate degrees are in Industrial/Organizational Psychology so I am knowledgeable about work-related situations/problems, careers, and other issues that employees, leaders, and business owners face. Since I have many years of experience working with hiring managers/hiring organizations, I can offer advice that will be useful to small business owners who could use some temporary human resources (HR) help. Please click here for an overview of my HR and Career-Related services.

So, check back here regularly or connect with me via social media. There’s more to come.

In the meantime, if you have HR or career-related matters that you’d like to discuss, please contact me by email, phone, or via direct message on Twitter, Facebook, or LinkedIn. I’m also available if you’d like to discuss any of these topics in more detail.

 

More than career coaching, it’s career psychology®.

But, when we’re unlucky, corporate psychopaths do walk among us. They can have an extremely detrimental impact on their peers and people who report to them, and can hurt the organization for which they work. There are also other things happening to some of us that make for scary work situations.

The Big Quit Continues: Why Employees are Unhappy at Work

Job dissatisfaction is at an all-time high. Despite fears of a recession, the Big Quit is still underway, with more and more people quitting their jobs in search of something better. I’ve written previously about the Big Quit phenomenon, and how the uncertainty of the pandemic has impacted our work-related choices. Certainly, wages are a major factor in this decision-making process. With the cost of living rising and wages not keeping pace, it’s no wonder that people are looking for greener pastures. But there’s one key factor that’s driving a lot of churn in organizations …

Black Psychology – What is it and why is it important?

While largely unknown, Black Psychology as a discipline has an established history. As a graduate student, Dr. Helen stumbled upon a book called Black Psychology (Third Edition) which was published in 1991.
