Don’t forget the big stuff while you sweat the small stuff

Don’t forget the big stuff while you sweat the small stuff
As leaders, sometimes we can become so busy with our heads down, getting things done, that we can forget to look up and see how the world is changing around us.

In today’s volatile, uncertain, and ambiguous business environment, it’s important to use the leadership quality of vision, to gather information and make a critical assessment of whether we’re still heading in the right direction, so we can make adjustments if necessary and take advantages of opportunities in a more agile way.

Beyond the job ad: 5 winning strategies for sourcing the best talent
In today’s hyper-competitive work environment, a key challenge for employers is how to find, identify and engage the talent they need to win: finding employees with the right mix of capabilities and mindsets to help their organisation thrive.

While any recruiter can undertake a search on LinkedIn and identify candidates according to work experience, skills and education in a few easy clicks, securing the best talent in the market is harder than ever.

I have a question for every professional reading this: Do you consider yourself a leader?

If your answer to that was “No”, it might be time to re-think how you approach your job and your career.

 The great skills race: How to amp up your skills development

Leadership for a new era: the 5 elements you need to lead through changing times

Leadership for a new era: the 5 elements you need to lead through changing times
Does it sometimes feel to you like leadership strategies never survive beyond a year? It seems commonplace now that organisational strategies and their supporting leadership frameworks are no sooner decided and set than they are canned and replaced.

As the pace of change in today’s business landscape accelerates, this perpetual shifting of priorities and objectives can cause anxiety and disengagement among teams. And it’s up to leaders across the organisation to manage the fallout.

 
 
 

How to ensure your leaders are armed for change

How to ensure your leaders are armed for change
In a recent study of over 7,000 employers across APAC we found that the ability to manage and drive change was the number one competency lacking in workplaces today. While we were not surprised at the veracity of the finding, it is a concern given the pace of change currently going on.

Incredibly turbulent and characterised by short economic cycles, external market influences, interest rate unpredictability and shifting geopolitical patterns, our world is being reshaped and resized by the digital revolution. With the advent of new technologies and digital disruption has come a change in customer expectations and a paradigm shift in how businesses think and operate.

Are you making these 7 mistakes when hiring?

Are you making these 7 mistakes when hiring?
Want to find new hires who will perform and stay? Then don't follow these common practices.

In my 16 years in recruitment, I've seen the all-too-common mistakes many hiring managers make when they recruit for new hires. It’s understandable – time is limited and we all naturally fall back on the practices that seem most expedient and commonly used. But unfortunately, these don’t often achieve what you really want: a new hire that goes on to become a star performer in your business.

 
 
 

A good salary vs the right employment offer

A good salary vs the right employment offer
When it comes to wooing quality talent in a competitive market, we all know money talks. When people change jobs, most will want or expect a pay increase compared to their previous job – and a hefty hike can act as a powerful lure.

This is borne out by Hudson research, which has revealed that the number one ‘must have’ in a new role for job seekers is ‘the right salary’ . But what exactly is the ‘right’ salary for a role as opposed to a ‘good’ salary, and how do you determine this?
