Recruit me like you mean it!

Recruit me like you mean it! | Succes met je Talent | Scoop.it

Have you guys ever seen a top level athlete in high school get recruited to play college sports?  I’m not talking about your best friend Mary’s son, Billy, who hit .338 his senior at Northern High and is getting a partial scholarship to St. Mary’s Western Community College.  I’m talking top 100 kids who have offers from USC, Notre Dame, Alabama, Texas, Florida, Ohio State, etc.  Kids who get hundreds of text messages per day, phone calls from morning until night, separate deliveries from the Postal Service, UPS and FedEx – each day.  Kids who go to play a Tuesday night non-league game against a team that has won all year and 37 coaches are in the stands only to watch them play.  The coaches can’t even talk to them after the game because of NCAA rules, but it’s important they are there to be seen.

Be real in the virtual world: building your social media strategy

Be real in the virtual world: building your social media strategy | Succes met je Talent | Scoop.it

Over the past decade, I have worked with a lot of coaches, many of whom feel uncomfortable about the Web as a tool for building their practice and building relationships. Here’s some of what I hear:

I don’t know where to begin with social media, so I avoid it.I focus on human relationships and the web is impersonal, so it’s not the right tool for me.Working on the web takes a lot of time that I just don’t have.I don’t see the benefit of social media when it comes to finding my ideal clients.There are so many options (Facebook, Twitter, Blogs, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Tumblr, etc.) and I don’t know which are right for me.

Stop requiring college degrees!

Stop requiring college degrees! | Succes met je Talent | Scoop.it
When will employers start valuing signals other than college degrees?

If you're an employer, there are lots of signals about a young person's suitability for the job you're offering. If you're looking for someone who can write, do they have a blog, or are they a prolific Wikipedia editor? For programmers, what are their TopCoder or GitHub scores? For salespeople, what have they sold before? If you want general hustle, do they have a track record of entrepreneurship, or at least holding a series of jobs?

These days, there are also a range of tests you can administer to prospective employees to see if they're right for the job. Some of them are pretty straightforward. Others, like Knack, seek to test for attributes that might seem unrelated, but have been shown by prior experience to be associated with good on-the-job performance.

13 things that really annoy people on LinkedIn

13 things that really annoy people on LinkedIn | Succes met je Talent | Scoop.it

Almost everyone I’m in contact with through business is on LinkedIn these days (and if you’re not, you should be). It’s a brilliant, professional, online business networking site and a place where you’re expected to promote yourself through your own profile and other areas of the site. Having said that, I consistently hear people moaning about a number of things that their connections do that really annoys them.

Put yourself in the driver’s seat of your career

Put yourself in the driver’s seat of your career | Succes met je Talent | Scoop.it

I have been mentoring Mark for a little over two years now. We typically get together every two or three months for a ‘reality check-up’, as I like to call it.

When we met up towards the end of last year, Mark had just had his annual review. During his appraisal, Mark’s manager had told him that she had identified him as someone she could see moving into a more senior sales and marketing role, since she felt he had shown some real potential over the previous six months.

“So how are things tracking for that new role?”, I asked Mark when we caught up for our first mentoring session for 2013.

The secret benefit of LinkedIn endorsements

The secret benefit of LinkedIn endorsements | Succes met je Talent | Scoop.it

A little while ago, LinkedIn began allowing members to endorse each other. Unlike recommendations, endorsements were simply a way for one member to confirm that another member has a particular skill. Because LinkedIn made it extremely easy to quickly endorse people for multiple skills, and because there is no verification required at all, many observers questioned the validity or use of the feature, myself among them.

Want to change the world? Be resilient

Want to change the world? Be resilient | Succes met je Talent | Scoop.it

What's the difference between someone with a good idea and a person who can transform their ideas into real impact? To tackle the world's biggest problems, we need to be able to identify and support the people who are capable of creating lasting change. At Acumen Fund, we spend a lot of time trying to find and train aspiring and established leaders from around the world who have the right mix of talent, ideas, and passion.

And what we've found time and again is: Resilience matters most.

Resilient leaders have three key characteristics:

Grit: Short-term focus on tasks at hand, a willingness to slog through broken systems with limited resources, and pragmatic problem-solving skills.Courage: Action in the face of fear and embracing the unknown.Commitment: Long-term optimism and focus on big-picture goals.

Your brain is hooked on being right

Your brain is hooked on being right | Succes met je Talent | Scoop.it
The adrenaline and dopamine rush you get from winning an argument feels good. Too good.

I'm sure it's happened to you: You're in a tense team meeting trying to defend your position on a big project and start to feel yourself losing ground. Your voice gets louder. You talk over one of your colleagues and correct his point of view. He pushes back, so you go into overdrive to convince everyone you're right. It feels like an out of body experience — and in many ways it is. In terms of its neurochemistry, your brain has been hijacked.

Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s curator insight, March 3, 2013 5:26 PM

Sometimes it's good to be aware of our biological system and processes when facing communication and leadership issues. As this excellent HBR blog article describes about our "addiction to being right".

Eye-opener:

"I've coached dozens of incredibly successful leaders who suffer from this addiction. They are extremely good at fighting for their point of view (which is indeed often right) yet they are completely unaware of the dampening impact that behavior has on the people around them."

Fortunately, there is a solution:

"Luckily, there's another hormone that can feel just as good as adrenaline: oxytocin. It's activated by human connection and it opens up the networks in our executive brain, or prefrontal cortex, further increasing our ability to trust and open ourselves to sharing."
