Recruiting Rene: Or, thinking and executing success, as only a recruiter can! – Part 73 of a Continuing Series

To review: Rene’s 5th Unpublished Rule challenged us about our method. My own analysis indicates that Job Titles, Relationships, and Performance are the smallest set of elements upon which we can build a successful recruiting method. We discussed the focus power of knowing the Job Title you place, as well as how critical to people […]

http://wiktenauer.com/wiki/Main_Page If you wish to be a historical swordsman, you must purchase a sword. You must practice with your sword. This is action; but it is not enough. More, you must study historical documents. But why? I can’t speak for others. But, to me, our treasure house of sword manuals may well be the single […]

Action. Isn’t that a great command? It really is too bad that we think of actors as people will play-act or who pretend to act, as opposed to an older meaning of the word, to act upon. One who acts, who takes action, acts upon something. It should be the highest praise we have to […]

Recruiting Rene: Or, thinking and executing success, as only a recruiter can! – Part 72 of a Continuing Series

Job Titles, Relationships, Performance: It’s a good triangle, don’t you agree? We’re going to look deeply at Performance right now. To do so, let’s remember that we tied the deep emotion of Recognition to Job Titles, and we also attached the broader issue of Company and even Industry Culture to Relationships.

I promised to share my epiphany today, and I will. But having written it up (and you’ll see that below) I couldn’t start there. Here’s why not. My epiphany is mine, it is my own. If you’re interested in how these things work, reading my story is a great thing for you to do. But, […]

I’m not sure that yesterday’s three parts – Job Title, Relationship & Performance – can cover your entire method. But, I am certain you need these three, and as clear, simple and mighty as you can have them. A. Job Title – Why do people so love titles? Why do sales people have to have […]

Try to feel it. Try to picture that the sugar content in your blood rises and falls. You eat, it rises. You exercise, it falls. Up and down it goes. Did you check out that chart I posted earlier? Just in case you didn’t, or could use another look, here’s that link again: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blood_sugar I’m […]

And now, our 12 bolts, one at a time, instantly applied: 1. Method consists entirely Method? This word, method. What must we do with this word? And, can it consist “entirely” of some clear, straight forward thing? What is your recruiting method? Is it personal, private, yours and yours alone? Does the method you work […]

I was recently engaged in a conversation where I shared my own most important philosophical discovery. I’ll share it here in a moment. I must qualify first, though, that when one makes a philosophical discovery, you make it for yourself. Most such ideas have been around for thousands of years. That’s precisely the case with […]

Recruiting Rene: Or, thinking and executing success, as only a recruiter can! – Part 69 of a Continuing Series
