Employer Branding - Focus on the business outcomes, not the methodology

Whenever I begin working with a new client, my first task is to understand the landscape. Often what people think they want is not always what they actually need. They look at what appears to be a solution, but without asking the right questions. This often focuses on inputs rather than outputs –we want some staff training/focus groups/workshops as opposed to what is the business outcome we want to achieve?

Don’t aim to solve problems.…

Hoarding and Data Migration

When I was growing up, I remember my grandmother having a particular eccentricity that we always teased her about.  She had a room that we referred to as the “Toilet Paper Room” because that’s where she stored toilet paper.  (Yes, a whole room.)  She also had a massive stash of paper grocery bags.  There were things like this that seemed silly to me to stockpile, because they were so readily available.  To her, she had a fear of someday running out.  I think many of us have seen this with…

Avoiding Leadership Dependence

Last week I watched a common example of one individual serving as the intellect and conscience for another. It happened at Publix, our local grocery store, where my 17-year-old son Benjamin decided to apply for a job. Standing at the application kiosk was a couple, painfully going through the questions, discussing and debating each response. The woman, who was the one applying for a job, was insecure answering the questions on her own, instead, running each one by “her man” as she referred…

You can't see the picture if you are inside the frame

On the way to the Veterinarian’s for an emergency run, we passed a church whose billboard stated “You can’t see the picture, if you are inside the frame.” The statement clearly applies to both our organizations and the dichotomy that exists in almost every workplace on the face of this globe we call earth.

Taiichi Ohno, the creator of the Toyota Production System, charged his managers with standing in a circle and observing the organization in real time. If we take Ohno’s charge in to…

Employee Engagement Is All About Recruiting

[thnks to Scott Adams for being so astute about HR issues & for the use of his intellectual property]
