It’s not always easy to find the right people for your company and get them on board. To help solve this challenge, my latest post on Inc.com shares three strategies that we use at Pluralsight to recruit—and keep—superior talent.
This Veteran’s Day, we’re honoring those who have served by offering them a free month of training!
We are proud to announce a partnership with LaunchCode that will help close the country’s tech talent gap and create a pathway for several successful careers.
Check out the newest courses from this week in our library.
One thing that’s struck me over the last year is that in so many different aspects of life, when you focus directly on what it is you want for yourself, often you end up with short term, shallow results. It seems that in order to get long term, meaningful results, you often need to focus […]
We’ve had some great releases this week for your viewing pleasure. Check them out here.
Titles aside, both Max Brown and I are playing the role of culture coaches at Pluralsight. This is an advisory role, and while we don’t make policy decisions, the leadership team seeks advice from us on a regular basis. Deming proposed a transformation of management away from command and control. He proposed substituting “leadership”. Managers are going to have […]
Recently a question came up around Deming’s philosophy – if the system is responsible for 96% of the output, why should the individual work hard if his performance doesn’t matter anyway? Individual performance absolutely matters – each of us are inputs to the system, and Deming was assuming that we are each giving our best efforts when […]
After watching Simon Sinek’s recent TED talk, “Why good leaders make you feel safe” I was inspired to read his book, Leaders Eat Last. In it, Simon explains that in order to create a safe environment free from fear, managers must put team members before themselves (see Leadership is a service role). But that’s only the […]
This question, along with a similar one, “How did you find Deming?” is one of the most common questions I get as a culture coach here at Pluralsight. Many roads lead to Deming – he was a thought leader in management throughout the latter half of the 20th century, first in Japan where his philosophy […]
We have three core values at Pluralsight: Truth Seeking, Entrepreneurship, and Eternal Optimism. Of the three, Truth seeking is probably the weirdest sounding, and I’ve often found that it resonates a bit more once I’ve shared some historical context. Aaron, Fritz, and I have been working together since the late ’90’s (that’s over 15 years […]
Stop for a moment and think about what a traditional job in management can be. More pay and perks, with less individual contribution in favor of “using” people to get work done. Set targets, hold your people accountable to those targets, motivate them with carrots and sticks. I suppose a lot of people aspire to […]
Take a look at how our authors are training with Pluralsight around the globe this summer.
Father’s Day is around the corner, and to celebrate we want to hear from you! Did your dad teach you how to ride a bike, tie your shoes and tinker with gadgets?

It’s Free Comic Book Day, so let’s take a look at 10 comics you need to pick up this weekend!
CompTIA recently released its new Mobility+ Certification targeting IT pros. This certification is exciting, relevant and poised to become very popular in short order. I’m excited to have been involved with this certification from its beta stage, and I want to share some of what I’ve seen and learned during this process, including some insight into the actual exam.
Happy Veterans Day! Here at Pluralsight, we would like to give a big thank you to everyone who has served our country or who is currently serving. We appreciate your dedication, loyalty and sacrifice.
Your kid can navigate your iPhone like a champ, but what if he knew how to build an app for it? You don’t have to tell us at Pluralsight that it’s important to teach kids about programming. We offer several free kids’ courses to help train the future generation of rock star developers. In fact, […]
Come on, admit it. Your screen is still sporting the same wallpaper your computer came with. Get out of your wallpaper rut by downloading a custom Pluralsight wallpaper! A customer recently asked us to create Pluralsight wallpapers, and we thought this was a brilliant idea. We love hearing from our fans. You’re an enthusiastic bunch, and […]
Developers and IT folks have an interesting relationship. Like cattle and sheep ranchers in old cowboy movies, they should be friends, but often regard each other as The Opposition. Luckily, fisticuffs or pistols at high noon aren’t usually involved, but the rancour is there. It shouldn’t be. Developers and IT folks – and, for that […]
