The Powerless Approach to Staffing and Recruitment

We are powerless when it comes to making people do what we want. I believe this is one reason parents are given teenagers, reminding them how powerless they truly are over people, places, and things.Too many people in our business continue to promote the myth of client and candidate control, insinuating that we can or even should manipulate the choices of others. These dangerous, Repetitive Practices (methods which cause harm) do nothing more than perpetuate the predominant, negative reputation…See More

Knowledge and Power

People often say knowledge is power, which is incredibly inaccurate. Knowledge applied in a compelling way is true power as it engages people in a meaningful manner. The question is, with so much available knowledge, how does one pick and choose what to acquire and what to ignore?Companies in staffing and recruitment, in particular, often don’t have the right knowledge that will be powerful in how it helps them support prospects and customers in improving their current circumstance. Instead,…See More

The Hire Right Assessment

Are you hiring right? “Of course we are,” answered Dan, a CEO who is a new advisory client from the West Coast of the United States. Then, he took the Hire Right Assessmentand was shocked to learn how much better other companies were doing at hiring for internal staff.Getting hiring consistently right is difficult for most companies, which is one reason why the staffing and recruitment industry has grown and flourished over the years. However, most executives in staffing admit that their…See More

Why Strategies Fail

Whoever said that “a failure to plan is a plan to fail” didn’t understand planning. Unless mentally impaired, no one actually plans to fail; what really happens is they fail to take into consideration the one element that kills the chances of any plan succeeding—emotion.Logic makes people think while it’s emotion that makes them act. All variations of planning, be they strategic plans, project plans, or broader business plans are exercises in logic. Done right, they make perfect sense, and then…See More

Is It Best? Or Is It Merely Repetition?

Last week I had the honor of speaking at the conference of the National Association of Personnel Services (NAPS) in Houston, an event with lots of smart and talented people sharing information and learning good practices. Embedded within those good ideas, unfortunately, were Repetitive Practices, inefficient routines that are often the way things have always been done. These include:Candidate and client controlFeature-benefit sellingAlways Be ClosingBack to basicsValue propositionsInfluencing…See More

Closing the Leadership Deficit

Take No Prisoners is a free weekly memo from Scott Wintrip that explores how Radical Accountability prospers companies and changes lives. Instead of taking people hostage with outdated, heavy-handed, and ineffective methods of management, measurement, and motivation, Radical Accountability focuses on creating an unwavering responsibility for getting done what matters most.Getting from here to a more profitable there isn’t just about charting the right course; it requires bridging the gaps.

Who’s the Next Contestant?

Like a game show where it’s anyone’s guess who’s going to win, it’s difficult, if not impossible, to predict which companies are going to buy next. At any moment in time, only 3% of companies are buying from a staffing or recruitment firm. During that same moment, another 6% are shopping, comparing candidates, prices, or contracts.Unless you have only one customer, no one is smart enough to accurately predict, all of the time, who’s going to give the next “yes.” That’s why achieving greater or…See More

"Fabulous blog title and I quite agree with your summary. It is up to every recruiter to attempt to create a better reputation for the industry. It will take a long time to turn the boat around but I do hope it will happen eventually."
