    Looking for Great Talent?

    Learn to Recognize a Competent Recruiter.

    Have you ever hired someone who seemed perfect for the job but then wasn’t? Have you every tried to hire the “best person for the job” and then they turned down the offer?   Why can it be so difficult to find really good talent sometimes? And by “really good”, I mean the right fit for the job and company culture.   The Selection Process There are a number of elements that need to work together well (but need not be perfect) to hire great people. The high level...Continue reading

    Why is Talent Management Important in 2014? Part 2

    Creating Vitality to Compete in the Global Market

    In my last blog, I captured why giving attention to talent builds sustainable profits. That article strongly suggested that creating a healthy organization is foundational to growing and becoming a stronger competitor in the global market. Over the last few years, global conditions have changed the Talent Market forever, and the need for Talent Management has also changed from a nice-to-have to a must-have. Click here to read more about it. (Why is Talent Management Important in 2014? Part 1) Or,...Continue reading

    Why is Talent Management Important in 2014? Part 1

    Attention to Talent builds sustainable profit.

    Global Markets Mean Talent Markets, Too I’ve been watching the global business economy and talent markets closely. As you may have been noticing, the need for talent is starting to recover from the recent Great Recession. While not everyone may be feeling the recovery, there is enough recovery to be conspicuous.   During the recession, leaders of most industries across the world have shared an overarching experience - the severely changing business landscape that threw competitive markets...Continue reading

    Personal Motivators-A Straighter Path Toward High Engagement

    Lessons in Leadership Genius

    Business success depends on the timing and fulfillment of customer-centric needs or desires. Many companies get that right, although some of it is simply by luck.    On the other hand, long-term and sustainable success requires, among other things, the critical element of a highly engaged workforce. This is always a deliberate effort by leadership to gain the commitment of their people…and never happens by luck or happenstance.    This brings to mind the email signature line...Continue reading

    How Best-In-Class Companies Hire Differently

    Learn to distinguish pegs and holes to determine how they match against success.

    I heard someone comment the other day about round pegs not fitting in square holes and it reminded me of a specific area where confusion exists in hiring.   Most people know that square pegs won’t fit in round holes. That’s easy.    Obviously, square pegs fit in square holes and round pegs fit in round holes. That’s even easier.   But round pegs will generally fit in square holes – they just don’t fully occupy them.    What does this have...Continue reading

    The Changing Role of Human Resources

    Effective Human Resources Management Involves All Leaders & Managers

    A little over three decades ago as a young undergraduate I made a decision to pursue a career in what at that time was called Personnel Management. Unlike many of my peers it was a cognitive decision. I believed that there was something fundamentally flawed in how we viewed the relationship between employers and employed.   Candidly my academic advisors weren’t terribly supportive. They encouraged me to have a backup plan in case I wasn’t able to find meaningful employment. I took their...Continue reading

    Interview Intelligence-Part II: A More Effective Process

    A Hiring System Proven To Work Well For Small & Mid-Sized Companies

    Once you make a commitment to improving your interview intelligence, you need to ensure that your entire interview process sets up your company for maximum success. If you measure your progress with both the interviews and the process, you can simultaneously improve to create a well-oiled hiring system.    Let’s talk about what doesn’t work very well, followed by a system that has been proven to work well for both small and mid-sized companies.    Round Robin Interviews...Continue reading

    Improving Interview Intelligence-Part I

    Develop Your Interviewing Skills to Create Better Outcomes

    Interview Intelligence is a combination of IQ and EQ (Emotional Intelligence). Both are needed in order to consistently hire the right candidates with competency, talent and fit. Good detectives have interview intelligence – the ability to find the truth. To hire top talent, you must become a more intelligent interviewer and talent detective.   It’s never been more critical to get it right when hiring than this moment in time. The current economy, thinner margins, and increased...Continue reading

    5 Elements of an Engaged Culture & Integrated Human Resource Strategy

    The Importance of People, How Does Your Company Compare?

    "Companies have a hard time distinguishing between the cost of paying people and the value of investing in them" -Thomas A Stewart 1997 I think this quote from Thomas Stewart captures one of the most significant issues that organizations still face almost 200 years after the Industrial Revolution, the idea that the acquisition and deployment of talent typically determines the long-term success and sustainability of organizations.   A recent poll of CEO’s regarding what they perceived as the...Continue reading

    Weaknesses Aren’t All Bad

    Seek to identify Self Awareness & Authenticity in every hiring candidate.

    By Joseph Skursky, President of Market Leader Solutions How many times have you read an article or Q&A forum regarding the classic interview question, “What’s your greatest weakness?” If you never have, here’s a spoiler alert – the topic is rarely positive and the supporting responses are quite caustic.    Do you use this question yourself or perhaps someone else in your organization? In the proper context and with the right objective in mind, it’s...Continue reading
