What businesses can learn from Special Forces

What businesses can learn from Special Forces

When I left the military after my conscription and entered the business realm back in 1987, I was acutely aware that I was entering a totally different environment. I expected to learn countless lessons about business theory and responding to consumer needs. I never imagined how much I would rely on my military experience though. In fact, in my years of advising medium businesses on business optimization, I have been struck time and again by how many of the military’s ...

What NOT to do when Managing Poor Performance

Managing workers is a complicated task, requiring appropriate application of interpersonal and strategic skills. Business success depends on involving employees in company objectives, so they’re motivated to focus on good performance. Poor worker performance is an outcome of:

  • selecting the wrong employees for particular jobs,
  • using inappropriate management methods to direct employees efforts, and
  • relying on these methods to generate improved performance.

What NOT to Do When Managing Poor Performance

Talentmanagement

Posted by:

Benut persoonlijke drijfveren en talenten in uw organisatie!

Veel talentvolle professionals kunnen hun ei niet binnen hun werk kwijt en benutten daarom hun kwaliteiten in hun vrije tijd waardoor veel potentieel en kostbare energie verloren gaan. Denk bijvoorbeeld aan de verveelde boekhouder die in het weekend zijn organisatorisch talent inzet ten dienste van de plaatselijke sportclub of de gestreste manager die in zijn schaarse vrije tijd opgaat in zijn creatieve geest bij het uitdenken van innovatieve oplossingen of het scheppen van kunstwerken.

How do I retain top talent?

Few things in business are as costly and disruptive as unexpected talent departures. With all the emphasis on leadership development, I always find it interesting so many companies seem to struggle with being able to retain their top talent.

Ondernemer, ontsla uzelf!

Ondernemer, ontsla uzelf!

Wanneer ondernemers net beginnen, zijn ze overal bij betrokken; de lopende zaken, de boekhouding, acquisitie en het plegen van verkooptelefoontjes. Zodra een bedrijf echter begint te groeien doet een bedrijfseigenaar er goed aan zichzelf te ontslaan van alle verschillende taken. De KvK had een aantal jaren geleden een cursus “hoe wordt ik een duizendpoot?” in haar cursusaanbod. Wanneer je echter alles zelf wil doen doe je alles half en loop je helemaal leeg. Het uit handen geven van kritische taken ...

High competence vs. Cultural fit

High competence vs. Cultural fit

The first people you hire in your startup company are critical to the company’s success. So it’s easy to say that you need to hire the “absolute best people you can find.” But what does this actually mean?

Take two different spectrums – (1) competence and (2) cultural fit. Imagine that you have a spectrum for each person — from low to high.

Recruiting talent. Most companies obviously will not hire someone who is low on both competence and cultural fit. They ...

The human factor

The human factor

We live in an amazing era of technology-driven transformation that’s redefining how we sell, market, communicate, collaborate, innovate, train, and educate—all in an amazingly short period of time. With that said, though, we don’t want to lose sight of the fact that the future is a human future. And when it comes to humans, it’s all about relationships at a deeper level than just knowing their name and trust. If you don’t have trust, you don’t have a relationship.

But trust ...
