How Working from home can give you 20 days of personal investment!
This week we are exhibiting at the first ever ‘Working From Home Show’ all without a single minute of commute time.
Every week now we are receiving calls from companies that are talking to us about changing the status quo and adapting to more home working following the global experiment of the past 5 months.
The Innovation Factor
Innovation is the action or process of imagining a new method, idea, product, etc. It is not invention, which is the act of taking that imagined idea and progressing it into reality. Both are super valuable in todays organisations, but without the former, the later won’t exist.
How to influence when working remotely
We have a number of clients who are asking how influencing skills change when working remotely. Often times it’s been connected to customer relationship management, or procurement, buyer / seller negotiations. The topic however is useful for us all to consider in this new post covid world.
Give me what I want!
Here’s a very quick blog that has massive potential. I want to suggest that there are three things that every person wants from others. If we know what they are, then we can become super expert at winning over others and building strong lasting powerful relationships.
What makes a great learner?
Having operated in this learning and development space for the past two decades, I’ve amassed a significant tally of trainees, that have as it were learnt under my wing. A very rough estimate puts it at around 7000 people. In that time I’ve probably seen everything a trainer might expect to come across in a life time! Truly the good the bad and the metaphorical ugly! As a learner it might be very easy to blame the teacher for a poor learning experience, perhaps justifiably in some cases, but without doubt the mindset of the learner will make an enormous impact on the value of the intervention.
Now might be a good time to break out of your rut and realise your potential!
I wonder how many of us feel that we haven’t yet reached our full potential. I have no real idea if everyone thinks this or whether it’s just me? I guess some people don’t care, others may feel that they’ve not reached their peak yet live happily with that thought.
How to approach interviewing people remotely.
The interviewers guide.
Doing a good job of interviewing is harder than we might first imagine. There are loads of things that we can get wrong, so getting some good training on this topic is a must for any recruiter. For this blog, I’m going to assume you know what you are doing normally, and just focus on the key things that are different when holding that interview remotely.
How do I come across well in a remote interview?
The interviewees guide.
It’s already a part of work life; holding and or attending interviews remotely happens regularly. In this first of two parts on the subject we are going to take a look at the question from the interviewees perspective. Next time we can deal with the interviewers viewpoint.
Two new things we have learnt about remote working
We’ve been digital nomads for decades, but the past couple of months has escalated our combined experience exponentially. It would be great to hear from you about what you’ve learnt, but here are two things that we’ve discovered working with a range of our clients.
Becoming the person I want to be!
Is there a part of you that doesn’t yet fulfil the personal aspiration that you might have for yourself? I suspect there will be something where you feel you’ve not regularly attained the standard that you would like to live out. It could be any number of things that leave you feeling short of the desired mark, but I’m here to suggest to you that it’s high likely that you can enable the change and become that person that you want to be.
