The Heartbeat of the Organization

Conversation Matters

Increasingly employees do not go into the office to get their work done – they are able to work quite effectively from a remote site. In this virtual world, when they do go to the office it is for something quite different. They go in order to meet with others to talk together about the planning and coordination issues their team or department is facing. They meet to have conversation.

The Art of Selecting Candidate Pre-Hire Assessments

Speaker: Melissa Dobbins, Founder & CEO, Career.Place

At the core of successful hiring practices is the fair and accurate evaluation of skills, abilities, knowledge and other criteria for a job.

Unfortunately, choosing the wrong assessments or using assessments in the wrong way can lead to bad choices, biases, and even discriminatory practices that violate compliance standards.

Problem Solving in Organizations: A Diamond or a Coin?

A well-managed conflict often leads to improved clarity, better relationships and win-win situations. - – - – -. Creativity and Critical Thinking: Friends, Not Foes!
