The 10 Commandments of Hiring and Employee Retention

Recruiting and hiring the right employees is essential to the success of your business. If you are going to succeed, you cannot settle for run-of-the-mill employees. Mediocre employees breed mediocrity, so make sure you recruit and select only the best employees. If you will follow these commandments and remain focused, dedicated and committed to hiring the best, you will soon see that your organization becomes just that — the best.

Control Your Leadership Reputation
Your leadership reputation is your most valuable asset. A strong reputation makes it easier to earn respect from your peers and to advance your career goals. But what takes years to build can be lost in a moment's notice. Social media is a perfect example of this; when leaders abuse the privileges and unique opportunities that social media channels offer to amplify their leadership value proposition, they often find themselves turning to reputation management firms to refresh their online image and keep their career progression from losing momentum.

Are You a Team Player?
By Harry J. Friedman
It's a buzzword in corporate America: the exalted team player. We all want them. We ask for them in "help wanted" ads. We describe ourselves as one of them during job interviews. But what exactly is a team player? And is success achieved through teamwork? Most would agree that the answer is "yes," but there's an important distinction to be made. Teamwork is not an activity, it's a result. Much like a professional sports team, it's the result of the focused efforts of individuals utilizing their skills expertly and playing their position well.

8 Ways Not to Manage Your Email (and Tactics that Work)
Harvard Business Review
In 1635, England's Charles I expanded the island's mail delivery service to the public — with postage paid by the recipient and based on the weight of the letter, Sarah Green writes. I think of this fact often when checking my email. I hope it doesn't take 200 years to figure out how to make the initiators of these messages — rather than their beleaguered recipients — bear the burden of their sending. But until then, recipients have to manage. And often, we have to manage without the kind of administrative support 20th century executives relied on.
