Activating Leadership From Within

 

Move from Ideas to Action - Harness Non-Conscious Brain Power

With our constant stream of emails, voicemails, meetings, conference calls, and so on, it is a minor miracle that any of us can accomplish anything. With our smartphones surgically implanted into our hands, our time is sliced so thinly that we never have the focused time to develop the big-picture perspective required for an action plan, let alone the time to execute it.

"Daily routines, superficial behaviors, poorly prioritized or unfocused tasks leech our capacities—making unproductive busyness perhaps the most critical behavioral problem” in business today, contend Heike Bruch and Sumantra Ghoshal in their book A Bias for Action.

For so many of us—whether CEOs for major corporations, small business owners or solo-entrepreneurs—there is a fundamental disconnection between knowing what needs to be done and doing it. Calling this disconnection the “knowing-doing gap,” Stanford University...

Behavioral & Performance-based Hiring For Employee Dependability

 

The True Cost Of A Bad Hire

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the price of a bad hire is at least 30 percent of the employee's first-year earnings. For a small company, a five-figure investment in the wrong employee is a threat to the life of the business. In many ways, a bad hire's effect on company culture echoes beyond the employee's tenure. Poor performers lower the standards for other employees, and bad habits spread like wildfire. Unfortunately, bad hires are not always easy to spot. While we all may say that past behavior is the best indicator of future behavior, we don’t act as if we believe this when we are interviewing candidates—often because we aren’t confident how to ask questions that will tell us about past performance.

The Hiring Smart Program Focus:

  • Pre-interview preparation
  • Develop better interviewing formats with values-based questions
  • Roleplay and practice using behavioral interviewing skills
  • Interview techniques for specific,...

Heart Breaking Anger

Everyone gets angry; it’s a normal emotion.

How you handle your anger can make all the difference to your heart. Letting your anger out explosively can be harmful because it triggers surges in stress hormones and injures blood vessel linings. When you have a destructive reaction to anger, you're more likely to have heart attacks.

Studies reveal a positive outlook reduces your heart attack risk by one-third and very optimistic people have lower risks of dying from heart disease.
