Humans speak their first fully-formed words sometime between 9–12 months of age. It’s a big deal, delighting our parents and launching us into the world of interactive communication. For the rest of our lives, words are the foundation of (almost) everything we do. Psychologist and author Dr. Jordan Peterson says, “If you can think, speak, and write, you are absolutely deadly. Nothing can get in your way.” If Dr. Peterson is right, then why are we so often inattentive to, and careless with, the manner in which we use our words? There are lots of possible [...]

As one responsible for a business's profitability, I never seem to have the time to coach my people consistently. They have such a limited attention span that I get the feeling, especially with my veterans, that they aren’t really into learning anyway. “How do I find the balance and provide them with what they need in a format that is of interest and relevant?” This question ranks number one among company owners, managers, and even trainers trying to find the balance between their own workload and providing their employees with essential skills and knowledge. We [...]

Alton Maiden played Defensive Tackle for The University of Notre Dame under legendary Coach Lou Holtz. In late October 1996, the Fighting Irish arrived in Dublin, Ireland to prepare for the first-ever Shamrock Classic – a November 2 football game between Notre Dame and the United States Naval Academy. During their time in Ireland, the team was able to do some sightseeing. One of their stops was a 12th-century cemetery. Coach Holtz said, “All we saw were dilapidated walls and huge tombstones.” Holtz would soon learn that Maiden saw something very different. Maiden was so moved [...]

Continuous Advancement & Perpetual Growth

One the surface, strongest value propositions a leader can give to an employee is the ability for that individual to perpetually grow in all dimensions. Obvious dimensions include professionally as well as personally, but do not overlook the importance of financial, mental, and spiritual growth as well. In nature, plants either grow or decompose; they do not stay the same. In an organization, nourishment is supplied by the broad term of training, but a more accurate term is learning. What is being done within your organization to foster learning, growth, and new perspectives each week? It [...]

There are many benefits to developing a relationship with an industry recruiter, even when you’re happily employed.

How Clients Attract Best Talent

By |2021-01-19T10:41:51-06:00January 19th, 2021|Blogs|

How Can Companies Attract the Best Talent? All too often, companies focus their recruiting strategy on describing the job responsibilities and their preferred requirements - essentially what the company is looking for in a candidate. While there’s nothing wrong with sharing that information, it will not attract the passive A-players they want to hire: someone who is currently employed, doing well, and not actively looking for a job. Giving them a description of a job similar to what they are already doing will not compel them to make a move. In today’s highly competitive employment [...]

In organizations around the world, the New Year brings revived optimism. As a manager, creating a well-rounded and high-performing team is one [...]
