Competence drives confidence

When have you been most confident at work, in any job? 

I strongly suspect it was when you had a high level of competence in that job. 

I recently had reason to recall the start of my recruitment agency career, in London twenty five years ago. I was twenty two years old. I was working in an office for the first time. I was living out of home for the first time. I was resident in a country that was not my own. I was in a job that I had zero previous experience in…

The Suckiness of Phone Time Reports

Recruiters have lots of metrics that they are measured on, but the most worthless of them all is the Phone Time Report. This is the report that shows how much time a recruiter spends on the phone each day/week/month.

Are your core desires met - and are you meeting those of your clients?

At a recent CSP (California Staffing Professionals) event, I had the pleasure of listening to Matt Payne, a long time disciple of Brian Tracy and now trainer in his own firm as he discussed the use of neuro-linguistics to program our thoughts into actions.   I remember learning about Maslov's Hierarchy of needs in college. Matt put it a little differently.  He posited that we basically have 6 core unconscious desires. (Not to be confused with obvious needs such as food, shelter and parental…

Superstitions: More Than Good Luck, They Improve Performance

Image courtesy billaday

Whether you admit it publicly or not, you probably have superstitions - most people swear by them. They’re those little superstitious behaviors people do for luck, like: knock on wood, cross fingers, tap two feet before boarding a plane, or wear that certain pair of underwear before an important meeting. Professional athletes like golf legend Tiger Woods, hockey player Patrick Roy, and basketball champion…

Does cultural alignment equal increased organisational performance?

At this point you may be wondering what a highly creative “1 + 1 = 3” advertising campaign for Schweppes has anything to do with the title of this piece. Most likely, your eyes were drawn to the image and then your brain tried to make some sort of semantic connection between these two disparate elements. *PLEASE DO NOT STOP READING* I realise that I may have lost some of you, but in this article I will attempt to explain how this mathematical improbability is a…
