Make the most of your staff's skills
By Michael J. Berens
Why is it that when we are hiring for a position, we look for the most experienced, well-rounded individuals, but once they have become part of the organization, we act as though their experience has deserted them at the front door? As they settle in to their new role, we get accustomed to thinking of them as performing certain functions. We become inured to the other dimensions of their personalities and histories. In these lean times, organizations cannot afford to waste the talents of their staff.

5 ways to lead through a setback
Switch & Shift
If you’re in leadership and business long enough, it’s inevitable you will encounter setbacks. You deal with people. You build relationships. People sometimes get upset. Customers get upset. Things don’t always go your way. Everyone fails. We all make mistakes. What matters is how you handle the mistakes – how you handle the setbacks. Does your character and integrity dictate your response, or is it more related to circumstances and events? One leads to personal growth; the other relegates us to blame and finger pointing.
