INDUSTRY INSIGHT: Hard Skills Are Only Half the Price of Entry

Organizations have been paying only half the price of entry when moving managers through the leadership pipeline.

Does Traditional Performance Management Work?

By M. Tamra Chandler, CEO, PeopleFirm LLC Performance Management (PM) is currently a hot topic among business leaders and human resource professionals. While it is universally recognized that the intent of Performance Management is worthy, there are many voices challenging the value being delivered by today’s traditional PM programs—with more ardent critics going so far as to say that traditional approaches to PM destroy trust between management and employees and do little to advance the development of the targeted employee groups.

Training managers to inspire employees and teams is vital to an organization’s success. Want to know how to do this?

Are the conversations managers are having in your organization currently creating engagement and momentum?

Hiring: The Broken Process

By Herb Greenberg, Ph.D., Founder, Caliper Corporation You’re looking to make a hire. So, you advertise “10 years of experience required.” I cannot tell you how often I’ve asked groups to whom I’m speaking, “Why 10 years?  Why not eight or 12 years?” There is never a solid answer.

Make “Value-Added” Really Valuable

By Bill Blades, CMC, CPS Smart salespeople can earn more clients in five months by being interested in the success and happiness of others than in five years of getting clients interested in them. Yet, the majority of salespeople make routine sales visits without thinking, “How am I going to earn their business?” and “How can I make my selling proposition so compelling that no one else will stand a chance?”

Finding the Hidden Treasure in a Job Hunt

By Libby Carter Current economic conditions have made job-hunting a necessary art form. Potential employees constantly must create new ways in which to differentiate themselves in the market. Since job hunting has become such a long, pain-staking process, one might compare it to a treasure hunt for the most valuable prize—a job. In this case, the one who finds the treasure is the individual who takes a new, fresh approach to accomplishing the task at hand. What does it take to find that “treasured” job?
