Are You Googling Job Candidates? When You Do, Everyone Loses

Are You Googling Job Candidates? When You Do, Everyone Loses | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it
Editor’s Note: Readers sometimes ask about past TLNT articles. That’s why we republish a Classic TLNT post every Friday.

I am not suggesting that you not Google candidate but I agree that each person is more than what is on social media.  It is also easy to confuse people on social media and build a false perception of the person.  If concerned ask.

Frank J. Papotto, Ph.D.'s curator insight, July 22, 8:49 AM

Well. don't completely forget about Lean and Agile. Just broaden the perspective. Lean and agile imply readiness and responsiveness which are good things. But they should not imply "reactive-ness"; . responding well to current circumstances  is simply not enough. Anticipating, forecasting, predicting, as well as possible, future needs and conditions is also critical.

 

The assumptions that present conditions will prevail and simple improvements upon existing processes or  activities will remain sustainable is unwise. Effective organizations both adapt and strive to improve their adaptability. This can be described as sustainable adaptation.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 22, 4:55 PM

Reacting and responding are two different things. Reacting is often a spur of the moment and off the cuff action that has little thought behind. Response, which is often understood as synonymous, is a measured process of thinking and acting. The word response is the root word for responsibility. Even in being lean and agile, we should be responsible and thoughtful in our responses.
