Cultural Fit - A Nebulous Target

There is an ongoing discussion within our industry about what the primary key performance indicator for success in a hires is. We all accept for the most part as organizations we hire competent people. We hire individuals who on paper at least can perform the duties and responsibilities of the positions.

Wondering Why?

Dr. Earl R. Smith II

Managing Partner, Growthers

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Many of my coaching engagements begin with a focus on the kinds of questions that a client has been asking themselves. It may seem strange at first to suggest that it is the question rather than the answer which is important; but that is the case more often than not. The seminal indicator that this is the…

Do what you can today;you might not be here tomorrow

Once gain one of our local churches provided the basis for this blog post. Driving past it the other day their electronic billboard admonished drivers to “Do what you can today; you might not be here tomorrow.” When I stopped and gave it some consideration it reminded me of some business organizations out there.

Consider first your own personal situations. I am almost certain that each and every one of you has a “honey-do list.” It contains all those projects that you plan to get to…

Women to increase representation on boards in Canada.

Minister Rona Ambrose is chairwoman of a new committee of business executives studying women on boards.

According to the research organization Catalyst, women make up 47% of the Canadian labor force but only 14% of board seats among the 500…

Sign on a church billbord - Don't have too much of an open mind, your brain might fall out

As of late I seem to get the inspiration for our blog posts from the local signs on churches of all denominations. The other day I passed one that said “Don’t be too open minded, your brain might fall out.” Really is that what they meant to say?

Take a moment and consider your organization. I am not concerned whether you are a small to medium sized enterprise or a member of the Fortune 1000, I continually hear and read in social media about managers who complain that…

First Minister’s call for ‘grown up politics’ countered by order – from the top

On Radio Clyde News at 11.00am yesterday morning, 8th June, First Minister Alex Salmond said that ‘grown up politics is about working with opponents’.

Correct as this is, it indicates that the First Minister is asleep at the wheel. Mr Salmond can have no idea that, at the highest level within his own party, working with opponents has been expressly forbidden, with mass suspensions and overt threats of loss of party membership to support it.

An authoritative source in Edinburgh…

Mr CEO I heard you found a source of cheap labor, not so fast

Almost every college career services department in the country pushes to area employers the benefits of using their internship program. On the first look it is a no brainer for the corporation. They get added manpower during heavy workload times and they can usually get it without any financial impact on the corporation. For the student it provides them with some work experience in the real world and exposure to varying industries from which they can plan out their…
