Nothing worth having comes easy, never mind naturally. As a coach I help people succeed at work, and this is the advice I give most often.
I’ve interviewed thousands of job-hunting hopefuls in my time – here’s what I look for in a candidate.
Managers often struggle in keeping talented and ambitious employees engaged. Don’t jump to promoting them into a role they aren’t ready for, focus instead on skills development.
However good your personal bonus scheme is, there are better ways to earn your employees’ loyalty or hard work.
Why hiring now could be your undoing.
What to do when your employee asks for a promotion.
HR doesn’t need to be in-house, it doesn’t need to be expensive, and it definitely doesn’t need to be taking up your team’s time.
Keeping it slick and steady and amidst the chaos.
Sealing the deal, and making it good (or at least, not awkward).
Digging deep to assess fit.
