Allow Me to Toot My Own Horn

by admin on January 09, 2015

Tweet I am a very good judge of talent. That might sound a little boastful, but my track record backs it up. Dozens of my former hires are now senior executives at some seriously awesome companies, while many others have gone on to start their own successful businesses. Now I wish I could sit here ...

Title Creep is Nuts…

by admin on June 30, 2014

Tweet   20 years ago, a VP or C-level title meant everything.  Now it seems, Gen Y has pushed for bigger tittles, and weaker leaders have given in to them. With larger titles comes higher pay, and at times unwarranted expectations from those we give them to. Instead of giving out titles quickly.   Do this ...

Don't Make This Mistake…

by admin on February 10, 2014

Tweet   Never let go of a great potential job candidate. When you have a great potential hire, hire them. Never let go.  Never give up.  Never let HR get in the way. Don’t sit back ‘hoping’ they decide to work with you.  When you know they are perfect, hire them.  NOW. I was coaching ...

by admin on October 29, 2013

Tweet When you get to a certain point in the recruiting process, it makes sense to bring in other team members to interview prospective hires. They’ll be working with this new person, and it’s only fair they have a say on who it is. Unfortunately, a lot of your rank and file employees likely lack ...

An Inquisition to Call Your Own

by admin on July 29, 2013

Tweet   The entrepreneurs I know possess a dazzling list of skills. They’re good at math, have incredible vision, boundless energy and positivity. But conducting job interviews?  Not so much. Most of them kinda suck at it aren’t very good at it. Maybe it’s because as self-made businesspeople, they’ve been through so few interviews themselves. ...

Piss A Few People Off!!!

by admin on January 04, 2013

Tweet When you are recruiting people, your job postings have to be like a magnet. Magnets both attract things, and repel things. Your Job Descriptions have to do the same thing to be really effective.  They have to be written in such a way to get the right candidates vibrating with excitement, and have the ...

Get Set For Interviewing Candidates!!!

Tweet During job interviews, ensure your questions are asked directly and clearly, and be sure to follow up.
