TLS Continuum Part 26: My Momma Done Told Me...

You were starting school or playing a sport. Think back to what your mother, or father told you at the time. If you were like my parents you were constantly reminded that if we did not succeed, try, try again until you did. Funny thing happened when we entered the business world. Suddenly you are told if you can’t do it safely don’t do it.  If you tried something and it didn’t work then you are penalized for trying on your annual performance review. If you tried to show sings of innovation…

Recruiters were asked as to their thought process when it comes to selecting the right candidates for job openings. This was a fresh view into the job hiring study, since most of write ups and analyses were focused on what applicants think, say, and act. There seemed to be minimal interest on how the other side of the negotiating table felt or thought, when in fact these recruiters’ decision spell the difference between “You…

Data: The Gateway Drug

I find data to be a bit of a gateway drug.   You get a taste of it and you go deeper and deeper down the rabbit hole finding both answers to your original questions and finding new questions you didn’t realize you needed resolution for as well.  As I am retiring for the day, I can frequently find…

The NRA, Tim McGraw and the Sandy Hook Promise: A Message for Management

The other day I was on Facebook and under the Trending section was an article talking about the push for a boycott of the upcoming concert to benefit the group by the National Rife Association.

TLS Continuum Part 7: What have we done?

As organizations today we are faced with a major dilemma.

Best Recruiters

There are great recruiters around the globe that are unrecognized both in industry and business.  Their names you may have never heard, their titles differ, and their salary is not a measure of their success.  Great recruiters are employed, unemployed, and underemployed.  They are in development, yet to develop and developing others.  However, they all have some greatness in them.  Some have learned their craft through due diligence, others try a haphazard approach, and still others forge…

TLS Continuum Part 5: Darn it!! Why aren't you listening

Dr. Tony Alessandra, the author of the book “The Platinum Rule” , suggests that the purpose of all businesses is to acquire and maintain customers.

If I only had a brain says the scarecrow

The news wires of late have been filled with stories one after another of NFL players involved in some form of domestic violence. Listening to Roger Goddell’s statement last week added to the feeling that something in this picture was missing.
