Selling is Simple…So Why is it So Hard?

More people fail than succeed at selling staffing and recruitment services. One element that raises the level of difficulty is that we sell the only product on the market that can change its mind. The bigger, underlying issue, however, is not the product but the approach to selling itself.Buyers, be they candidates buying into opportunities or hiring managers acquiring the services of the talent we represent, always believe themselves but only sometimes believe those who sell. Yet, most people…See More

The Advanced Level

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 Instead of taking people hostage with outdated, heavy-handed, and ineffective methods of management, measurement, and motivation, Radical Accountability focuses on creating an unwavering responsibility for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 what matters most done.Many professionals want to be at the advanced level, preferring to take part in processes or education that employ advanced…See More

Mom Was Wrong

In an accusatorial tone, many mothers have said things like, “If your friends jumped off a cliff, would you do it too?” The insinuation is that real friends don’t encourage you to take risks. From my experience a true friend, or even just someone who has your best interests in mind, will ask you take to huge leaps, even giving you a shove from time to time.Taking leaps is top of mind as…See More

Inspired Recruiting

Some interactions with candidates almost seem to be divinely inspired, while others feel like you’re trudging though mud and muck, getting nowhere fast. What’s the cause of these very different scenarios?Inspired Recruiting, an almost effortless interaction with a candidate, always has two components: trust and compulsion. Without both of these, recruiting becomes a more difficult task.Without trust and compulsion, you experience Shields Up, the recruiting equivalent of the shields in…See More

Nimble Leadership

During a conference I spoke at last week, I met two types of leaders: those whose businesses were experiencing accelerated growth and the rest whose companies seemed to be stuck in neutral, going nowhere fast. The key difference in the leaders of these firms is decision making. Without exception, the leaders whose firms are growing fastest have leaders who think more nimbly and act more swiftly.When making decisions, people strive to get them right. Never have I met a competent leader who…See More

Uncommon vs. Commodity

“When you can do a common thing in an uncommon way, you will command the attention of the world.” – George Washington CarverToo many firms in the staffing and recruiting business still compete on price even though it’s the least sophisticated way to sell. At times, even highly talented, seasoned veterans use this harmful technique when they’re afraid of losing a deal.Our industry would do well to remember that buyers know that the lowest price rarely means the best investment. Competing on…See More
