4 Things You Can Do to Get Candidates to Open Your Emails!



I found some cool data that probably got overlooked a while back from CB Insights [1]. Now, this data is from 2016, but it’s super relevant!

CB Insights did some testing with their own email newsletter that went out to 175K+. A very big sample and the reality is they have the exact same goal as we all do, Get Candidates to Open Our Email!

These 4 things work really well in getting people to open your email:

1. Brand Names. CB found that using a big brand name like Apple, Google, Nike,...

What Leaders Forget When Leading Employees



When leaders need to hire, they first look at a resume. When leaders need to assign work, they do so based on skill set and past performance. When leaders promote, they consider potential leadership skills.

In each of these situations, leaders forget one very important thing.

Employees are more than just resumes, skill sets, histories of performance and potential leadership skills. There is a whole other side of them that, in my assertion, affects how they work even more than their education and experience.


By personality, I don’t just...


What Do I Do If They Cry?



Let’s be real. No one likes to hear what they’re doing wrong, particularly if they know you are right. Giving feedback is tough. Hearing tough feedback is even tougher. What do you do if they cry?

How to Connect While Wearing a Mask



You may have noticed it. You are pushing your shopping cart wearing your mask at the grocery store and you see another person doing the same, but you hardly bother to look in their direction or attempt to make eye contact. Before COVID, I was good about smiling and making eye contact with others.  Now, not so much --unless I need their attention. Do you find it easier to retreat to your own world rather than decipher what’s going on with those around you?

Now imagine you are at work...
