Your business team is like family and should be treated with dignity and respect. Your team, if focused on obtaining a common goal and proud (not to mention excited) to come to work each day, is what makes an organization successful. This is accomplished through defined goals, clear strategy, clear communication, and working well with others. As my dad used to say (a very successful businessman who worked his way to President of his company), there are 3 rules to live by in the business world: 1. Love what you do; 2. Love the people you work with; 3. Love yourself.

3 Interview Questions That Reveal Everything | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it

Employee fit is crucial. Here's a simple way to know if a job candidate is right for your business.

Interviewing job candidates is tough, especially because some candidates are a lot better at interviewing than they are at working.

To get the core info you need about the candidates you interview, here's a simple but incredibly effective interview technique I learned from John Younger, the CEO of Accolo, a cloud recruiting solutions provider.
