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.

Culture and Learning

We need to change culture from “how we do things around here” to “how we do things right around here.” Here are three things that need to be in place to create positive learning cultures.

How to Be a Pick-Up Artist

Pick-Up Artists tune into external stimulation quickly. They pick up the nuances of a language cue. They enjoy the back-and-forth of verbal banter. They are in tune with their internal prompts—thoughts, emotions, physical energy.

Don’t React, Act

Reacting to conflicts often leaves us in the lurch. However, with time, patience, and practice, you instead can make responding or acting your primary method of dealing with tricky situations.

Managing Cultural Differences

Accepting that your way isn’t objectively best for everyone can go a long way toward improving communication with your colleagues around the globe.

What Motivates You To Do Your Best At Work?

We might not believe it, but we are always motivated. Whether we are motivated to do what we are supposed to be doing or being paid to do at the right time, now that is another story.

Focus on Iceland

Reading is a national pastime in Iceland—in fact, there are more bookstores in Iceland per capita than any country on Earth.

What If A Trainer Became CEO?

Because of my training and organizational development background, I see things through a different lens. I believe the financial issues will work out OK if our people are motivated, engaged, and excited about working for the company.
