Recreating the Wheel, Why?

Recreating the Wheel, Why?

How many staffing professionals, recruiters, and sourcers, create their own Boolean strings? Answer most of us. However how many copy those strings down and keep them in a file of some kind for use later? Answer not many. Why? Why do we feel the need to reinvent the wheel, recreate the search strings over and over again, when we can simply copy them to a spread sheet for use later. Moreover we can keep a tack of the results from a…

Perspective

Hung from the ceiling of the Guggenheim in New York City, virtually all of the work created by Maurizio Cattelan is offered in a new perspective to patrons of his work. Pieces can be viewed from different angles and compared in context with the full breadth of his creation. Cattelan agreed to display his art at the Guggenheim only if it were arranged in this provocative and unique manner.

To see your clients and their work in a new light, you too should insist on viewing things from a…

Sometimes simple is best, less is more!!!!!

Sometimes simple is best, less is more!!!!!

 

Within HR, staffing and business in general, there is a huge push towards metrics, and process. Everyone wants to ensure they have a process, and it can be measured. These things are very important, however we need to ensure we look at them and incorporate them for the right reasons, and looking for the right things.

The Artwork Affliction

Like the artwork on the walls of your home or office, most people eventually stop noticing the details that surround them. That is why saavy manufacturers, such as Coca-Cola and Pepsi, periodically repackage their products to ensure they keep our interest.

Your prospects and clients will stop paying attention to the details of your business unless you repackage what you do from time to time. This includes marketing materials, questions asked, websites, talking points, blogs, and…

External Recruiters: Are you a "salesperson", a "consultant", or both?

The big question I'm really interested in is this: What's in the best interests of the candidate and client... a consultative approach, or a sales approach?



After all... the "better" recruiters in our industry always focus on the big "close". For these recruiters, every aspect of their work resolves around…

The Leadership Needle in the Haystack

How do we know when we’ve found a great leader? What differentiates the effective leader from the high performer, the effective manager, the superb executor? The great leader is the proverbial needle in the haystack. But when you know what sets them apart, they can be identified with confidence.

What defines a great leader? The answer is surprisingly simple: followers. There is great wisdom in that observation. Leaders engage in five consistent and specific…

Social Recruiting...the Basics We Always Forget!

Just two weeks ago, I attended a conference in Philadelphia regarding social media’s influence on the business world as we know it. It’s amazing to see how different departments are leveraging social media in their day-to-day tasks. In fact it’s great. However, for those of you who haven’t jumped on board the social media train, you are missing out. Let’s take HR for example. Recruiters know that they…

The Uncertainty of Gratitude

The economic crisis in Europe, an apparent stalemate over a debt deal in Washington, persistently high employment, the ongoing military conflict in Afghanistan, threats of another global recession…the list of uncertainties goes on and on. During this Thanksgiving week in the United States, it may be difficult for some to feel grateful given the current circumstances.

The Satisfaction Trap

While gratitude for current circumstances and successes is prudent, being satisfied is incredibly dangerous for business professionals. Satisfaction becomes a trap that keeps you cemented to your doorstep and allows your competitors to grab more market share. I asked a recent workshop participant, who was resistant to ideas for enhancing her business, if she was satisfied with her current business model and she replied, “Yes!” When asked if she was also satisfied with her results, she…

Seven Billion

The United Nations projects that the seven billionth person will be born today somewhere in the world. Our ever increasing population and the demands it creates for goods and services generates tremendous opportunities for companies of all sizes. Simply being ready to serve a wider audience, however, does not constitute the preparation necessary to compete in the new economy. You must eliminate, innovate, and automate aspects of your business to hone your competitive edge:
