Previously Published to News Break So many of us enter into a relationship thinking that “this might just be the one.” Everything’s going great. You guys are in sync. You share a number of common interests. But, then you comfortable. The first time something seems out of place, we start questioning everything …and to the point of overanalyzing it. An analysis is great, but it’s only great if you do it correctly. Stop thinking the worst about your relationship, and analyze your relationship the right way. What’s love got to do with it? For those of you, who are familiar with DISC assessments, you know that there are three natural states of our being. One is our perceived self. One is our private self. Another is our public self. How we act towards someone new isn’t always based on how we actually feel about them. Sometimes it’s how we are feeling about ourselves going into that new situation and the environment in which we are spending our time getting to know them. When we are new in a relationship, we might be nervous. So, we tend to act in the same way that we may deal with under stress. We […]

Social media activity, based on personality type

READ THE ENTIRE ARTICLE ON DISCINSIGHTS BY PEOPLEKEYS You’ve heard it time and time again (and, you’re going to continue hearing it) … “We’re all different. But, we’re all predictably different.” As true as this statement is to our walking life, why would it be any different when it comes to social media? We’re on social media, because everyone else is. But, not all of us are on there to communicate. While Grandma is busy giving “love” to all of her grandchildren, others are networking. Some are trying out new recipes, and others are busy looking at stats. So, who’s doing what and why from a personality point-of-view? Let’s take a closer look. The Dominant Style “Ds” don’t always speak on social media as they use it mostly to accomplish a goal or find information quickly. When they speak, however, they’re most passionate about the subject. They’re jumping on our posts, soliciting unwanted advice or showing why they are most qualified to speak on a specific subject. “Ds” usually will share something related to business, politics, the sporting world — or maybe even religion. They’re telling us about their accomplishments or the lives of those they admire. Yet, they’re still […]

Using DISC for Workforce Optimization

READ THE FULL ARTICLES ON DISCINSIGHTS BY PEOPLEKEYS As many organizations are finalizing year-end strategies and developing next year’s business plans, others have already taken a running leap into 2019 with iron-clad initiatives for growth and expansion. No matter which phase of strategic planning you are in, please don’t forget that “people” are our most significant investment and that our businesses are defined most effectively by our workforce. According to Human Resources Today, the macrotrends for workforce optimization in 2019 are dominated by record-low rates of global unemployment. Simply said, this means that workforce optimization, in a tight labor market, must be a top priority for any business entering the new year. Predictive Hiring for Top Results This fact is often forgotten, as businesses begin to automate and outsource many of their proprietary operations. Improper hiring, in turn, led many companies to either close doors or merge with others in efforts to save what has been left in the aftermath of dissolution. Vision is lost, and the bottom line becomes tainted. No SWOT or Regression Analysis can prevent a business from dwindling if our most precious asset becomes ignored. Implement Predictive Hiring, instead, when both analyzing and optimizing the workforce, […]

Hiring top-executives is a two-way process

READ THE FULL ARTICLE ON DISCINSIGHTS BY PEOPLEKEYS Hiring has always been a two-way process, even though many HR professionals, coaches, and business owners can be making the mistake of accepting it as a one-sided road. There is a switch in the hiring market, and most companies don’t really want to talk about it – especially when hiring for high-level positions. For each new position, hiring managers are stuck sifting through 200 or more resumes on average. Many are vague or duties-based, with few talking about the cause and effect of what the candidate has done in their previous role. They lack in showcasing the candidates’ true impact they had on the previous company they worked for. It’s alarming to think there are really not enough qualified candidates to fulfill each position. The truth is the hiring process needs to be reinvented according to the modern trends of empowering and understanding human behavior. THE PROBLEM. The hiring process should also be candidate-centered – not just centered around what makes things easier for the employer. In reality, what seems to be easier on the surface is taking away from the quality of the workforce. Every prospect entering into the organization should […]

PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED TO TALENT ZOO’S DIGITAL PIVOT A recent Scanbuy Shopper Survey breaks down how mobile influences consumer shopping behaviors. In fact, numbers say that 89% of consumers actually use their mobile while shopping. A control group of 19K proved that incentives still rock the world of sales. Consumers showed Scanbury that, as a majority, they prefer mobile couponing. They especially enjoy receiving coupons while on premises at their favorite stores. Receiving coupons upon entry entices the compulsive behavior of each customer and encourages more spending while in the store. Many times, customers set a bar for how much they can or will spend upon visit. And, because deals aren’t always easy to come by, they end up spending more and going home satisfied through quantity and value. Only 45% of consumers show that they prefer in-store only couponing, as many of consumers shop online. Because so many of our populations are compulsive shoppers, it isn’t too much of a shock that three out of four consumers who were surveyed actually shopped on their mobile device at least once a month. Fifty-four percent of all users will research a product via smartphone prior to purchase. Conveniently, this includes in-store purchase […]

To Lead or Not to Lead?

PUBLISHED TO TALENTZOO A very common misconception amongst the professional community, and especially where very talented people have the chance to “shine,” is that showing any type of leadership ability through resume or interview is a big “no-no.” Many equate the demonstration of leadership ability as something that should only be done if one seeks an executive role or a management position. The reality is that lack of leadership could be the one thing holding them back from that higher-paying senior position within the team atmosphere — or even barring them from an entry-level position within a company that requires self-starters in a fast-paced environment. Not showing leadership ability will not only hinder chances to get in the door, but also those for continuous promotion and increases in pay scale. As a matter of fact, lack of leadership ability may be why many have tenured a position for ten or more years without pay increase and without promotion. They are hardworking, serving employees, but they aren’t taking initiative. While they work hard and go above and beyond to meet goals, they may only be performing duties within the expectations of upper management. It is important to rise above expectations, take […]
