The evolution of business: The PROFIT mode dies out, the PURPOSE mode comes in! May 18, 2010

.

I think the most brilliant about this observation is that this is the NEW trend. I am sure that a couple of centuries or even decades away people have been indeed very well motivated by profit only. Now, as a clear advancement of mankind we can see the new motivation, the advanced motivation.

Let me back it up with one fo the most brilliant TED videos – “How great leaders inspire for action”, I guess it is nearly same idea, but from another view-point…

We live in a very interesting time when we can observe the transformation of the whole humanity at the highest speed!

Job world: why it’s so difficult to find a really good employee? March 3, 2010

 How many excellent teachers, doctors, salesman, secretaries, IT manager, cleaners, cooks, designers do you know? I bet very, very few. It’s damn hard to find a good worker, of any kind.

Since I am in the recruitment/Human Resources field, this question puzzles me a lot: why only few people are becoming true dedicated professionals in their area? Why are so many just mediocre performers?

Can it be that mostly people are just in the wrong jobs? And if it is so then why are they not trying to find the right one? Can it be that for some people it is just not important? (this I doubt, but who knows..)

Anyone knows the answer?

A good HR question August 12, 2009

As a HR Manager I often face people who have lost /or never actually had their professional orientation.

Here is a good question to ask oneself about it:

It is an old story, but just tooooooo good, isn’t it?

 

P.S: many thanks to my dear friend swaps for sending it to me.

Want to be a boss? August 19, 2008

How many people dream of being a boss? Nobody knows, but I guess many. Such applications as status, respect, money are pretty attractive.

I am convinced that being a boss is a challenge not for everyone and actually not at all that attractive! What I see around is that people in charge (in business or politics) are in fact much poorer off than “normal people”.

Here are some good reasons taken from personal experience and HR books:

 – a boss is an object of critics and rumors (starting from dress or hairstyle till family life and hobbies – everything is under the magnifier)

a boss is a stressful and dangerous job (whoever failed, the boss is the one who is responsible)

a boss has normally no weekends and celebrations – any time anything can happen and he/she has to be available (more…)
