I am only worth $.15 to you, really!!!!

In the past couple of weeks we have seen and heard from a number of business owners who have tried to put a price tag on the implementation of the Affordable Care Act cloaked in the argument as to why they have to add costs to their ultimate end users- the customer.

Whether it is the owner of Papa John's Pizza or the franchise owner of Denny's they seem to be forgetting one very important piece of the picture. In each case where would these organizations be if their human capital made…

1st is everything, 2nd is nothing.

“I am the greatest; I said that even before I knew I was.” These are the words of arguably the greatest of all time, Muhammad Ali.  He gave everything to be the best at what he did.

With Gold, Silver and Bronze up for grabs in London, is it ok to strive for less than the best?  In my opinion it’s not.  That’s the opinion of someone who is not a world class athlete that has not earned the right to be part of the greatest show on earth.  I absolutely respect each competitor who…

14 Leadership Traits

Everything I know about leadership I learned in the Marines.

I enlisted in the Marine Corps on my 19th birthday after a half-hearted attempt at college. I spent the next twelve years  learning to lead using the 14 Leadership Traits and 11 Leadership Principles. Nearing the end of my third enlistment my wife and I discovered that she was pregnant with our first child. So, I decided to hang up my guns.

Since then, four children have come and a dozen years have passed. I've read…

Candidates Should Mirror Athletes.

As my recruitment career continues and the list of candidates I deal with increases, it becomes very apparent that there is a small minority that truly stand out above the rest, the elite. There is a very definite quality they have and that is shown in the extra level of effort in all that they do.

With Euro 2012 in full flight (never mind England, we'll get…

Sourcing and searching the variables.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

As some of you read in my post on research, using that research to improve your

search strings and sourcing is very important. You will lock yourself into a very small pool of candidates if you do not use the variables.

Interviewing is a 2 way street!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Interviewing is a 2 way street!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Most staffing professionals, hiring managers, and others who do interviews seem to be under a misunderstanding as it relates to interviewing. They feel that they are doing the interviewing and that is all. They do not realize that the candidate is interviewing us as well.

 

When you are interviewing a candidate the candidate is taking mental notes of everything said,…

Reporting, and matrices a hidden land mine!!

Reporting, and matrices a hidden land mine!!

 

I have done several postings on reporting and on matrices. In all of them I stress the importance of not using the stats alone to make decisions. The reason for that is because stats alone do not tell you the whole story. It is imperative you understand the WHY’s behind the numbers. If not you will fall into the hidden land mind that these reports and matrices create. You will make choices based on half…
