Companies Have Feelings Too

On December 9, 2009 we hosted a webinar entitled, "The Anatomy of the Interview Process".

If Rocky Balboa Could End the Cold War....

One of my all-time favorite writers, Bill Simmons* of ESPN, credits Rocky Balboa for ending the Cold War by defeating Ivan Drago in Rocky IV . The thought is intriguing. Communism began its decline very shortly after this movie’s release.

I watched Rocky IV for the 200th time over the Thanksgiving holidays. I was astonished by the allegorical similarity of Rocky’s one-man disarming of the… Continue

A Tear On The Cheek of Time

Yesterday I was reminded about of my first visit to China.

During the long drive from the airport to Beijing’s downtown, I marveled at the ability of the Chinese [gov’t] to hide thousands of its poorest citizens behind a never ending array of ingenious landscaping devices- miles of carefully planted trees and plants, well positioned walls and mounds, all designed to obscure our view of ordinary people going about their daily lives.

Regardless of China’s motivation for… Continue

The fuel door on my car is busted. We had a little mishap at the gas station the other day and the fuel door latch was thankfully the only minor casualty. It won’t take much to replace it however the interruption to the crush of work and holiday schedule is annoying. It sounds odd perhaps but I think it was my car’s way of telling me to slow down the usual driving pace before moving forward. Compatible to the inevitable year-end reflection and resolution-making, the following is my glimpse in… Continue

The Trusted Recruiter

In his well-known book, The Trusted Advisor, David Maister explored the paradigm of that very important business relationship, using the professional services paradigm as a basis. His book covered some key components of trust (the trust equation), the process of creating trust (including the most common trust-breaking mistakes and this post includes a good example).

Trust is not a soft or an ambiguous concept – and it should not be. Some years ago I attended a one-week leadership… Continue

I won the #TruLondon 100 tweet challenge: I'm Going To #Trulondon Are You?

I have no idea how I’m going to get there: but I’m going.

I’m so excited. Last week the @radicalrecruit laid down the gauntlet and challenged the twitter community to a 100 tweet contest: the prize- free #trulondon unconference admission. After 24 hours of mad tweeting, I exceeded the 100 tweet quest and increased my follower base in so doing.

What blows my mind about this is that I was afraid that if I attempted to tweet 100 times in one day, my followers would leave me… Continue

Important Questions for After the Interview

The Vice President closes her notebook and says she has no further questions. You sit back and let out a sigh of relief. You knocked that interview out of the park and now you can relax, right? Not exactly.

When the interviewer asks you if you have any questions before the interview ends, it really isn’t considered optional. This is your time to show that you have researched the company and really understand their core values, mission, goals and objectives, major players, and key… Continue
