Evaluating Quality of Hire: Can’t Get There From Here
by Dr. Wendell Williams - Nov, 2008
Time and again I read recommendations for evaluating quality of hire. Ask the managers, ask the employees, ask an astrologer. None of these things will ever give you more than a subjective opinion about the kind of information you need to improve the quality of hire. Here’s why. Imagine advertising for superheroes. There are a dozen steroid-pumped, ego-centric applicants sitting in your waiting room wearing masks, capes, an...
Creating a Retention Culture
by Barbara Giamanco - Nov, 2008
Holding on to your valued workers doesn’t end with a competitive paycheck. It requires an environment of great management, open communication, empowerment, and recognition. While the U.S. economy may be growing at a rate of 3-4% each year, employers are seeing a corresponding decrease in the availability of bright, talented 35- to 45-year olds. When you combine that with the idea that at any given time 75% of the employ...
We Can Work It Out
by Dr. Barton Goldsmith - Nov, 2008
The Beatles were still in their twenties when they wrote “We Can Work It Out,” but somehow they understood that even though resolving issues can be hard, it is better than trashing a business relationship, a job or a deal. Here are ten tips to help you work things out: 1. When you’re having a difficult discussion, put your angry emotions aside. You can’t be logical when you’re mad. If you can’t contain your ire, it may...
Where is the Good People Management?!
by John G. Miller - Nov, 2008
One of the many Miller daughters is now a barista with a large coffee house chain. What a fine organization they are. Great benefits. Decent pay. Good work environment. Fun culture. The company is successful beyond the founder's wildest dreams, I'm sure. But none of that matters to a teenager working her first job and experiencing her first boss. High school senior, Molly, came to work on a Tuesday at 3:30pm, expectin...

by Dr. Linda Burrs - Nov, 2008
If leaders are not intentionally creating cultures of inclusion, then by default, they are creating cultures of exclusion. For years the term diversity seems to have taken the brunt of everything that is not good about working in organizations. The misinformation and disinformation attached to the word diversity are extraordinary. Diversity has been substituted for affirmative action, EEOC, artificial quotas and the cause of u...
So You Were Wrong
by Nan S. Russell - Nov, 2008
I once worked for a boss who was never wrong, never made a mistake or a bad decision. All you had to do was ask him. To his staff he was Teflon-man. Nothing stuck to him and everything came sliding toward us. Accountability was not a concept he practiced unless things turned out well and then, he claimed the credit. But if they didn't, he immediately embarked on endeavors to identify someone responsible. Being called to his...
Six Musts For The New Manager
by Alexandra Levit - Nov, 2008
In the past, becoming a boss for the first time was a rough transition. You were expected to take the reins with no training or preparation whatsoever, and your team would suffer the consequences.
