This is from my good friend David Lieber, CEO of Ramapost. A purple squirrel is a metaphor used by recruiters and human relationship managers to describe the perfect job candidate. Because squirrels in the real world are not often purple, the implication is that finding the perfect job candidate with exactly the right qualifications, education and salary expectations can be a daunting – if not impossible -- task. It seems that everyone is looking for the “purple squirrel” and cant find them! The answer is finding good “potential” candidates and training them really well. http://blogs.hbr.org/2013/01/dont-hire-the-perfect-candidat/

How I Got Rid of Unconscious Incompetence at Work

How I Got Rid of Unconscious Incompetence at Work Remember those great posters that you used to see around your high school (or parents’ garage)?Grow up, get a job, and move out while you still know everything.

Well, it’s like that for many people at the beginning of their professional careers as well; and I was no exception. You may have heard about “The Four Stages of Competence”. At the beginning of my professional career, I did, in fact, have “unconscious incompetence” at work. But, thankfully, I listened to some great leaders along the way and got r

It’s Your Job to Tell the Hard Truths - Peter Bregman - Harvard Business Review

It’s Your Job to Tell the Hard Truths - Peter Bregman - Harvard Business Review The CEO of a high-tech company and a client of mine for nearly a decade, called to tell me we had a major issue with some of the newer members of his leadership team. What comes to mind when you think of what might constitute a “major issue” with some senior leaders? Maybe they’re in a fight? Maybe they’re making poor strategic decisions? Perhaps they’re not following through on commitments they made about the business? Maybe they’re being abusive to their employees? Maybe they’re stealing? I’ve seen all of those problems in the past at various companies. But none of that was happening at Rashid’s firm. The major

Stephen Covey explaining the charactor ethic and the personality ethic

JME has shared a video with you on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ACukmJ_5HSo Stephen Covey explaining the charactor ethic and the personality ethic by greaterawarenesstv www.greaterawareness.tv & www.higherconsciounsess.tv Stephen Covey´s world famous book 'The seven habits of highly effective people' is a masterpiece.

Great CEOs Deal With 'Elephants' First

Great CEOs Deal With 'Elephants' First http://www.entrepreneur.com/article/238305 In my work as a consultant, I see CEO's struggling with dealing with the "Elephants". Mostly because its very tough and people are apprehensive to deal with the tough stuff. Another reason is, that many CEO's do not have the tools to deal with the "Elephants". In my new book "The Prosperous Leader" I discuss many of the most effective tools to indentify and deal with the toughest problems.

15 Ways You're Wasting Time and Don't Even Know It http://www.inc.com/jessica-stillman/15-ways-you-re-wasting-time-and-don-t-even-know-it.html In my book The Prosperous Leader (Chapters 6&7) I quote Covey and others about the time wasting epidemic that plagues our personal and professional life. In Habit 3 of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People Covey explains how to determine in which “quadrant” your spending your time in and how to change from crisis and time wasting to being effective and efficient. Remember there is always 60 minutes in every hour, the question is how are we spending those minutes and hours.
