TLS Continuum Part 17: I Can See Forever

Back in the early 70’s there was both a hit song titled I Can See Forever and a best selling book about GM titled On a Clear Day you can see General Motors. The point of the analogy can be rooted in Deming’s 6th point of quality. In this point he emphasized…

TLS Continuum Part 9: Why are we doing that?

In order to understand how our organizational processes work In Part 4 of this TLS Continuum series I asked if you knew where you were going? To understand the response to the question the article guided you through the process of creating an eagle’s eye view of the organization called a process map. The purpose of the Process Map is to provide you with a picture of the steps…

TLS Continuum Part 8: The Corporate Silent Killers

In the human side of things we regularly hear about medical conditions that can result in death yet we can overlook their presence because they are asymptomatic.  The condition is present but unless a series of diagnostic tests are performed the patient never knows the problem exists.

Our organizations are no different. Every corporation has hidden in its processes; there are every day non-value added activities that serve no customer demands.  Which serve no benefit to the…

Ready to empower change in your organization? Only if I don't have to resign she said

I recently had the pleasure of talking to the members of the Mobile, AL chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management. Prior to my presentation, during the networking opportunity I walked the room stopping at each table and asking whether they were ready to go back to work and empower change in their organization. At one of the tables I stopped at, I received the response “sure as long as I don’t have to resign.”

We can’t remove the organizational inefficiencies unless we…

1960’s Recruiting in 2011

Remember the 1960’s?  Well, there are two generations who don’t.


If you were a candidate, there were three primary ways for you to find a job.


1)      Complete an application, drop it off with the Personnel Department, and hope the company called you.

2)      Become known as a contributor in your current company and be recruited by a recruiter or someone within another company who knows your impacts.

3)      Network with people who could help…

Recruiting the Sales Way

Successful corporate recruiting requires focus, time, and hard work.  Companies that are very successful finding the top candidates understand that attracting candidates is a sales process.  The amount of effort put into the search for the right candidate is reflected in the quality of candidates presented for interviews.  Are your company’s hiring managers frustrated in the quality of candidate received?  Do they constantly request the aid of search firms (who understand Recruiting is…

My Pay It Forward post was spurred by reading an article on putting an employee’s future potential ahead of a company’s immediate gain. Perhaps the reason for the impact that article made was the recognition that, due to the effects of this…

In December, came out with their Top 11 HR & Recruitment Blogs for 2011.  Having some spare time to take a look at a few of their top picks, I came to one that had many interesting posts, however one in particular intrigued me. …

The Customer is always right! Until they're not!

Originally posted on the SmashFly Recruitment Marketing Blog.

I just recently read the post Why You Should NEVER Listen to Your Customers on Mark Cuban’s Weblog and I have a few thoughts on the subject. First, what… Continue

What Version are You?

How often do you update your software? For instance, do you update every time there is a new release to take advantage of the latest in technology? Do you update your operating system to gain advantage as soon as it's released, OR do you wait? Like most people you probably upgrade your software every couple years due to a forced change.

I mean why change right? If it's working and current software you have gets you by why change? The time it would take to learn… Continue

Performance reviews; Do they perform?

Performance review time in any company is detested by most managers and employees. Most companies continue to follow the same old process of reviewing every candidate just once a year and make changes to compensation based on the outcome of the review. How can a manager expected to remember all the events from the first day of the year to the last? Is it right to expect a manager to record every significant event with the employee during the year? Should we expect the employee to accept… Continue

What's doing?

What will you be doing today to attract more clients, increase revenues and build your business?

Here are twelve ways to do what has to be done to achieve those goals:

1. Send a letter (not an e-mail, a letter in the post) to three potential clients that would gain value from your expertise.

2. Make the three follow-up telephone calls to the three people you wrote letters to last week.

3. Arrange to speak to a group of people. Some of my clients and… Continue

Request for Tender is Bad Business

I received a telephone call from a member of my Mentor Program who asked for assistance with writing the covering letter for a RFT.

There are better uses of your time than bidding for business with an organisation that is looking for the 'lowest price.'

Keeping current customers happy is far smarter than chasing after other people's customers. The AICPA states, attracting a new customer is eleven… Continue

Give yourself a performance review

I consider myself an experienced - actually very experienced - recruiter. I have over 15 years of experience and I have worked independently for most of that time. Only newbies benefit from rigorous programs like counting calls placed, messages left, emails sent and contacts made, right? Wrong!

I decided to count my calls for a few days to see if it would have an impact on my productivity and my results. I was actually shocked at the results. I got a lot more done when I forced… Continue

Mid-Year... Stepping it up.

RecruiterGuy Improve Gel Well the 4th of July is upon us. It's this time of year that I'm always catapulted into taking a hard look at my current fitness program, recruiting practices, personal relationships, or work related self-development. Strange, I know - considering most people do this around January when resolutions run rampant or in the Spring when love is in the air (or is it because of that spring cleaning thing? either way...)

Every year at this time I spend some time on each of the above…
