HR departments receive more resumes than ever because job applicants have more options than ever to apply. This also means that resumes must be filtered more carefully. To handle the increase in applications, more and more organizations are turning to Applicant Tracking Systems, or ATS to scan resumes much more quickly.
In the United States, Halloween is a significant celebration. Derived, at least in part, from the ‘Feast of All Hallows (All Saints)’ which falls on November 1 each year, the quote from Lolly Daskal is pertinent. The Saints all had one thing in common, they learned how to develop an interior life that allowed them to ‘lead from within’.
Looking for jobs in the government sector can provide you with job security, a good retirement plan, and a health insurance program that exceeds most public sector employers. One of the things you can add to your professional resume as you apply for government positions is showing that you have knowledge and understanding of the importance of cybersecurity in the workplace.
Well, this is without any doubt, a dream of every writer to find an effective writing contract which can not only make him or her attain the ability to earn good money but also let the writer build a portfolio more effectively. This explains why every writer is always looking for something big, which can play a significant role in the process of building his or her career in the best possible way. Most people may have no idea about the great opportunities which a writer can get. It is because they do not have the idea that writers can also get writing contracts from government officials.
Every day we face choices about what we should or should not do. We have to consider what tools and techniques enable leaders and their team members to always do the right thing.
I lay in the narrow bunk, heeled 30 degrees, listening to the storm tear at the boat and sails. And, I listened to the crew tackle each adversity calmly, collaboratively, decisively, and transparently. Do you do the same when adversity hits your organization?
It has been said that there are those who lead and those who follow. Tell that to a mid-level leadership and you will get more than a pair of rolling eyes. Caught between the crosshairs of complying with executive leadership and being responsible for team leading, many mid-level leaders find themselves between the proverbial rock and hard place. When this happens the risk of occupational burnout intensifies.
In the United States of America, September 17, 1787 is etched in the memory of its citizens as the day that 38 delegates signed a new ‘Constitution’ that would bring into existence the United States of America with a central, federal government. Through the echoes of history, such an event stands as a great achievement and the words of Stephen. R. Covey ring true. If the founding fathers were not focused, consciously committed to the task of creating a new ‘Constitution’, they would have, according to Covey, been committed to something else less important and thus history may well have taken a different course.
After a recent presentation, someone approached me and asked, “I noticed that when you share your learning with us, you often give us things to do rather than telling us what not to do. Why do you do that?” I responded by stating that when someone tells you what not to do, your brain focuses on that, often leading you to do what you are told specifically not to do. For example, if you were teaching someone to ski, you would not tell them, “If you lose control, don’t look at the trees!” Making this statement would lead people to look at the trees. Rather you would say, “If you lose control, remember to look down the hill in the direction you want to go.”
Individuals, governments, and private businesses all share one absolute truth: Reputation is everything. If an individual has a bad reputation, no one wants to take a chance on them. When a company has a bad reputation, no one wants to do business with them, so much so, that others can simply avoid these less-desirable services and take their business elsewhere. However, people often can’t easily avoid or seek out another local government as easily. Therefore, in many ways, it is even more critical that local governments guard their reputation.
