How to avoid America's biggest hiring mistake
ERE    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Here's a mistake holding back many businesses: Recruiters and hiring managers overemphasize industry experience and immediately dismiss candidates who do not have specific job-related experience. That might be fine if you're hiring a doctor or a mechanic. But for most jobs in the business or non-profit sectors, it's not the right tactic.

That formula is based on two key observations from the world of behavioral economics. First, the memory of an experience trumps the actual experience. Second, everything is relative. More

Unusual things that great bosses do
Inc.    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
To employees, you're often not a person. You're a boss. (Kind of like when you were in school and you saw a teacher at the grocery store; it was jarring and uncomfortable because teachers weren't people. They were teachers.) That's why showing vulnerability is a humanizing way to break down the artificial barrier that typically separates bosses from employees. One easy way to break down that barrier is to ask for help.
