64K Question

When interviewing a job candidate, one question a hiring manager likely asks is: “What are your strengths and weaknesses?”

Do the answers to the stock job interview question, “What are your strengths and weaknesses?” give a true representation of a candidate’s capabilities and capacity to be trained?

Under Review

The annual ritual of employees assessing themselves on a company form, managers giving their own evaluation, and the two meeting to discuss the results may be passé. Or at least deemed inadequate at some companies.

Once the gold standard of tracking employee performance, the annual performance review has lost its luster. Some companies are finding ways to increase its relevance and effectiveness, while others are eliminating it entirely.

Who's the boss

The traditional manager who is a planner, visionary, and master of delegation, rather than a co-collaborator, may be becoming less common.

It’s often not the manager these days, as companies are evolving into collaboration-oriented cultures that place less emphasis on hierarchy. But the changing role of managers also means changes in training and organizational mindsets.

Under the Hood of the MBTI Online Assessment

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) personality assessment instrument can be beneficial when used for its designed purpose. It’s not designed to predict performance—in fact, the theory behind the instrument pre-supposes that someone of any personality type is capable of performing well in any profession.

How to Improve Retention Rates by Creating a Culture of Care

During the last three years, FirstLight Home Care has seen less than 20 percent turnover of home health-care workers well below the industry standards. Its solution? Take the time to hire right, offer better working conditions, make employees feel valued, pay them a fair wage, and create a “Culture of Care.”

Defining Success

Living a successful life is not dependent on the financial wealth you create. You can transform each day of your life into a success story by rewiring your brain, thinking beyond profits, and living here now.

Open Office Purgatory

As an introvert, who can’t tolerate eyes on her for long periods of time without feeling those eyes sucking the life out of her, few things in the workplace sound worse to me than an open office layout.

Looking in the Wrong Direction

One of the fundamental keys to success in life, however, is personal responsibility. It is the realization that life provides no guarantees—only opportunities.

Artificial Intelligence, Personality, and HR

An artificial intelligence tool that analyzes text written by individuals whose personality you are interested in may prove useful, but we should not get carried away. No one tool should guide our decisions in recruiting, developing, and retaining employees.

Training Top 125 Best Practice: AfniPRIDE Bench Strength Program

This multi-tiered program prepares contact center agents to become first-line supervisors (known as coaches) and focuses on leadership competencies including communication, building relationships, coaching, critical thinking, and business acumen.

The Leadership Context

It is a subtle, but important, difference to distinguish between “How I can do more to get more?” vs. “How can I get more?”—“more” being a higher level of performance from employees. The key lies in understanding what the supervisor vs. employee is responsible for in achieving good performance.
