To Survive, And Perchance To Dream…..

Let me throw all the crap against the wall and lets just see what sticks!! It seems to me that the older I get; the more I hear about the people who have forgotten about why they got in “The Game” and settle instead into complacency and give up on the successes they had plans for or the dreams they once held near and dear. This is not…

Authenticity, Believability and Commitment

To me, there seems to be two types of people in the workforce: Those that can and those that wish they could. Once we realize which of the two groups we are currently in, then we can take the steps necessary to advance to the more prestigious group. It has been beaten into us from the time we are old enough to understand that we always have to be…

How do you Become The Best….

Six words which form what I think is one of the great un-answered questions of all time. Others have tried, come close or failed to attain the brassiest of brass rings—and that is to discover how one becomes the best!!

Is it a course or an educational module? Is it something found with style, a trendy newspaper, or the tabloids? Is it an expression? or possibly a frame of mind? Could be…any or all of the above plus other thoughts not yet expressed. Or it could be none of the above… Continue

Change occurs all the time, usually in subtle ways but occasionally in a manner that feels like a ton of bricks were dropped on your head. This then leads to a lot of questions and sometimes a little hesitation as a new direction is chosen and the path is mapped out. Unsure of the destination you head out (knowing that the journey is half as much fun as reaching the destination.)

This is usually the point where you start to ask questions, verify the new goals and set up the strategy…

Friends and Enemies...

“It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to your enemies, but a great deal more to stand up to your friends”- Dominique Pirolo, 2011

It is an interesting thought that we would give that much power over our affairs to people who may not always have our best interest at thought.

Dealing with those who go against the grain is nothing new, so to think these individuals will agree to your ideals is quite a stretch. Its those whom we refer to as friends that deserve to be…

I Want You to Want Me!!!!

“People will hate you, rate you, break you, and shake you; How strong you stand is what makes you”- Judy Reynolds, Facebook 2011.

Interesting comment I received via Facebook the other night. And how timely and true it could really be. Everyone wants to be number #1, sometimes so much so, that they forget the things they felt were important at one time, or feel that success is the be all and end all. To me, this all comes down to merit, how much faith we place in ourselves; and how…

How Engaged Are Your Recruiters?

In my mind, the engagement level of an organization's Recruiters are a major indicator of how well that organization's Recruitment function performs.  Over the years I have worked with hundreds of Recruiters in countries all over the world and one of the characteristics that always differentiated the performance of the great Recruiters from their Recruitment colleagues was the high levels of passion and engagement they brought every day to their role and their organization.

I remember…

Why are a majority of recruiters not able to succeed in their 2nd recruitment job?

A LinkedIn discussion, Why are a majority of recruiters not able to succeed in their 2nd recruitment job, having performed reasonably well at their 1st? attracted hundreds of comments from fellow recruiters across the globe. This blog is a summarisation of what I think are the top 10 reasons. Credit however to recruiters who have found success in their second, third and are still recruiting………

Is this where we settle? Good? Do we not look at better or try to do our best? Good is okay but certainly not where we should end up! Try and follow (please note this is written after The Recruiting Animal Show on November 10,2010)

HOW is “Good” enough? When we look at success, look at our job list, look at our partner or employer and say “meehh, good enough.” Is this a point where we should settle? NO!! Strive to do better and strive to be better– Good is not Good Enough!!

WHERE is… Continue

A Whole Lotta Grey – Employment Standards (Canada)

Speaking with an affiliate who specializes in recruiting, I was asked what rights do recruiters have in an employment relationship around termination. My answer, a whole lotta grey.

First thing to determine is was there an employer/employee contract in the first place. There are legal payroll requirements, standard employment contract agreements and many more conditions that determine if the relationship was actually an employer/employee one. With that said, there are also…

Closing the Interview Door – In Your Own Face

In a recent HR magazine called “Network” that is distributed through Alberta there was a story posted about an interview appointment gone wrong. I had to read the story about three times over before I could believe what I read. My question is, have candidates really degraded to this level of foolishness?

Who Owns Your LinkedIn Profile? What EVERYONE Needs To Know

It’s natural to think that your LinkedIn profile belongs only to you. It’s contains so much of your hard work and personal knowledge, it seems out-of-the-question that anything else

could possibly be the case. However, as business begins to recognise the

value social media brings to the bottom line, the issue of ownership of

social activities is coming to the fore. So, if you tweet for work,…

Do you know about


As a seasoned Recruiter I have been extremely frustrated with how to practically apply the use of “Social Media” to my full desk environment. The more times I posted positions to my LinkedIn signature, groups, et cetera the more silence I seem to have been creating. As my frustration reached a…

Lessons From A Kid

Throughout my life there have been so many times that I have "wanted" to do something or "thought" about doing something, but I just never followed through with or completed. There have been lots of things actually, like going back to school, becoming a police officer, writing a book, and the list goes on and on. I'm almost certain that I am not alone in this category either. Things always seemed to come up or I just never took the initiative to get something started as it related to my…
