Close More by Selling Less

Resumes are incredibly flawed sales tools that prove the common saying that “less is more.” Case in point comes from a salesperson new to the staffing and recruitment industry. Instead of the resume he sent to the buyer creating buy-in, it’s generating pushback as the hiring manager is questioning why the candidate for a contract role has worked at seven companies in the past 10 years. The answer—each of these was a contract assignment. Yet, this fact did nothing to allay the concerns of the…

Exploiting Intelligence Will Be Part of Future Recruiting Strategies

Linking Recruiting With Intelligence

Recruiters know how to successfully identify talent amongst the crowd. They also know how to exploit the intelligence gathered during the research/sourcing process. Often realizing the value of such intelligence and the importance it plays in creating a strong pipeline. But what happens to this intelligence once the pipeline is filled?

You Can Take It With You

While the quote “you can’t take it with you” may apply to money and material possessions, managers must require that team members take with them their greatest asset to the job each day—responsibility. Leaders of organizations doing better than others are always insisting on consistent execution, and execution can only happen if everyone does their part, being responsible for their contribution.

For example, take two recruitment companies in the UK working on the same type of growth…

The Powerless Approach to Staffing and Recruitment

We are powerless when it comes to making people do what we want. I believe this is one reason parents are given teenagers, reminding them how powerless they truly are over people, places, and things.

Too many people in our business continue to promote the myth of client and candidate control, insinuating that we can or even should manipulate the choices of others. These dangerous, Repetitive Practices (methods which cause harm) do nothing more than perpetuate the predominant, negative…

Knowledge and Power

People often say knowledge is power, which is incredibly inaccurate. Knowledge applied in a compelling way is true power as it engages people in a meaningful manner. The question is, with so much available knowledge, how does one pick and choose what to acquire and what to ignore?

Companies in staffing and recruitment, in particular, often don’t have the right knowledge that will be powerful in how it helps them support prospects and customers in improving their…

Are you hiring right? “Of course we are,” answered Dan, a CEO who is a new advisory client from the West Coast of the United States. Then, he took the Hire Right Assessmentand was shocked to learn how much better other companies were doing at hiring for internal staff.

Why Strategies Fail

Whoever said that “a failure to plan is a plan to fail” didn’t understand planning. Unless mentally impaired, no one actually plans to fail; what really happens is they fail to take into consideration the one element that kills the chances of any plan succeeding—emotion.

Logic makes people think while it’s emotion that makes them act. All variations of planning, be they strategic plans, project plans, or broader business plans are exercises in logic. Done right, they make…

Is It Best? Or Is It Merely Repetition?

Last week I had the honor of speaking at the conference of the National Association of Personnel Services (NAPS) in Houston, an event with lots of smart and talented people sharing information and learning good practices. Embedded within those good ideas, unfortunately, were Repetitive Practices, inefficient routines that are often the way things have always been done. These include:

  • Candidate and client control
  • Feature-benefit selling
  • Always…
