Much like the distressed job seeker who’ll just take anything merely to find a paycheck, once you are a staffing service rep pounding the sidewalk trying to become in the door of a business you’re probably going to take whatever they have, even if it means playing moment or third fiddle to additional staffing services currently servicing that client.
After all, if your foot isn’t even in the door, how can you possibly begin climbing the ladder,…

True or False - is tech hiring slowing down?
I believe the answer is both, true and false. There is undeniably a slowdown in VC funding in the Bay Area as of late 2015 with all the unicorns and even giants falling in valuations due to “tech corrections”. Fundraising is not as… Continue

How easy it is to apply previous experience to current circumstances. Such was the case when I emailed colleagues last week about a trip to New York I was on as a chaperone for my son’s thespian troupe. I received responses like:
- “Ugh, teenagers. Good luck.”
- “How’d you get roped into that?”
- “Better you than me!”
This trip was one of… Continue

Headhunter is defined as a person who identifies and approaches suitable individuals employed elsewhere to fill an open business position with their client.
When I first got in this business almost 12 years ago, this was a term that I did not like nor did I respect. It was a term to… Continue

Next time someone asks you to repeat a question, count the number of words. Chances are it was more than ten. I’ve often noticed this happening with salespeople talking with prospects and clients and executives speaking with members of their team. What’s the issue? Our brains process questions of less than ten words much more effectively than those that exceed ten.
Each time we pose a question of more than ten words, the listener spends more time focusing on the question and less on… Continue

Heavy-handed techniques, complex closes and feature-benefit laden pitches have dominated sales for years. These methods are exhausting to do and even more taxing on the receiving end for buyers. It’s little wonder that virtually no one likes to be on the receiving end of a sales pitch.
I wrote Sales Yoga to help solve this problem once and for all. Sales Yoga is a “collaborative approach to meeting the shared needs of a buyer and seller.”
When done right, the… Continue

Having to tell my son, Ben, his dog had to be euthanized this past Tuesday is now on my top ten list of life’s crappy moments. Seeing him cry as he said goodbye to Max, yep, that’s on the list as well. That same day, a girl with whom he was starting a relationship suddenly ended their friendship by text. As Ben put it, “this day can’t get any worse.”
As a Dad, I want to shield Ben from these hurts in life. But I can’t, which really pisses me off at times! So I did the next best… Continue

Being married to a teacher, I’m biased, typically erring to a teacher’s point of view. However, when the behavior of teachers is harmful to children, I’ll take the kids’ side every time.

I’ve just returned from an extended business trip to the Twin Cities of Minnesota where I enjoyed a healthy dose of Minnesota Nice. If you’re unfamiliar with this, it’s a way of being in the Land of 10,000 Lakes. The cordiality and devotion that Minnesotans extend to one another, and guests like myself and my wife, is so commonplace that someone just had to give it a name.
Minnesota Nice… Continue

Desolate and lonely, you find yourself in a vast space where it seems no one, absolutely no one, can be found. Parched and hungry you trudge on, getting wearier by the moment. You just want to give up, thinking, “this is it. This is where it all ends.”
No, this is not a vain attempt at channeling Stephen King or Dean Koontz. Rather, the “desert” described above is the mental space that… Continue

Cans work well for beans and vegetables but fail miserably in sales. Yet, many sales organizations mandate that salespeople memorize or read specific soundbites designed for specific situations. Would you want to be on the receiving end of one of these impersonal, canned statements? This type of sales practice is just one of many reasons why people dislike hearing a sales pitch.
In Sales Yoga, we practice the art of Integrative Questioning to build rapport, develop… Continue
