Being married to a teacher, I’m biased, typically erring to a teacher’s point of view. However, when the behavior of teachers is harmful to children, I’ll take the kids’ side every time.
That’s the case in this latest awarding of Radical Accountability Zeroes to the UFT, the New York City affiliate of the American Federation of Teachers, and the New York State… Continue

This week I want to take some time to talk about one of the most important parts of the recruitment process that is often overlooked; prepping the candidate for interview.
It has always amazed me that so many otherwise exceptional recruiters will work so hard to identify a good job order; find the ideal candidate; set up an interview and then drop the ball. Why would anyone work… Continue

Desolate and lonely, you find yourself in a vast space where it seems no one, absolutely no one, can be found. Parched and hungry you trudge on, getting wearier by the moment. You just want to give up, thinking, “this is it. This is where it all ends.”
No, this is not a vain attempt at channeling Stephen King or Dean Koontz. Rather, the “desert” described above is the mental space that… Continue

Cans work well for beans and vegetables but fail miserably in sales. Yet, many sales organizations mandate that salespeople memorize or read specific soundbites designed for specific situations. Would you want to be on the receiving end of one of these impersonal, canned statements? This type of sales practice is just one of many reasons why people dislike hearing a sales pitch.
In Sales Yoga, we practice the art of Integrative Questioning to build rapport, develop… Continue

Earlier this week, a salesperson told me about a difficult conversation she was about to have with a client. In asking for my advice, she said there was a chance this customer will ask for a price reduction and that she’d have to do a “dog and pony show” to convince them to keep working with her at the current rate.
I told her she needed to “kill the dog and corral the pony.” As you may suspect, there was a long pause on the other end of the phone after such a startling… Continue

Way back in 2008, I created a training guide called Resume Forensics. In a nutshell, it was a how-to for finding resumes and passive candidates on Google, Yahoo, Bing and a few other resources. In all modesty, it was an underground hit. I… Continue

All this fuss about Social Recruiting and Recruitment as a Marketing function. Marketing successfully implemented, drives purchase decisions, inspires a call to action, and, if broadcast and amplified on social media as a channel, should drive… Continue

All joking aside, the current state of the recruitment industry is no laughing matter. It is a world lacking any form of entry barrier and as bizarre as something directed by David Lynch himself! HR departments so it seems, were put in place with the sole purpose of fending off hordes of thick skinned recruiter-goblins, whose only… Continue

It was 1995, I had just graduated from Ole Miss, the Harvard of the South. I had absolutely no idea what I wanted to do for a career. I was considering moving to Memphis, Tennessee, but I had no leads, so I packed my things and moved back to Austin, Texas. After all, I was 22 and I had no money… Continue

Welcome back. I got behind the proverbial eight-ball last week and was unable to finish this in a respectable time.Anyways we are back and ready to have a look at 'Aptitude'..The second half of the equation.
Like before, let s begin with a basic definition: According to Wikipedia: Aptitude is a component of a competency to do a certain kind of work at a certain level, which can also be considered "talent". Aptitudes may be physical or mental. Aptitude is not knowledge, understanding,… Continue

Tuesday after a long weekend, and I hope today, all is well. One of the more interesting things about long weekends (besides the copious amounts of food!) is that it allows most of us to hit the cosmic "reset" button and re-focus the way we approach work. Simply having a couple of extra days to mentally work through your problems, especially now that we are moving into the Christmas period, allows for a re-dedication of both mind and body to… Continue

Lets think on this for a couple of minutes: You… Continue
