Ask an Eeyore about the weather and you will likely get a forecast of rain. Ask an economist about the economy and you will likely hear a prediction of disaster. Listen to the news and you may end up hiding under the bed.
It is easy to be a pessimist, but it is not healthy.
Harvard Health tells us, “…do people who see the glass half-full also enjoy better health than gloomy types who see it h…
Companies engage management consultants for many reasons, for example, to examine organizational structures while considering adjustments so as to enhance efficiency or effectiveness, to bring in specialist skills not available in the organization itself, and to execute limited-term specific projects. Over the decades, this practice has become well entrenched, and the number of management consu…
When you hear the news these days does it feel like humanity is lurching from one crisis to another? Pandemic? Inflation? Interest rates? Politics? Immigration? Ukraine? The Middle East? Is the end really near? It would be no wonder if you too felt depressed and lethargic in the face of this apocalyptic stream of existential threats.
You may even have put that longed-for change of career on ho…
How you feel about working remotely probably has a lot to do with your role. Employees apparently prefer being remote, or at least a hybrid role according to a recent study that shows “…an overwhelming 98% of respondents expressed a desire to work remotely at least some of the time for the rest of their careers. […] the appeal of remote work is catching on, with 87% of workers embracing flexibl…
Health Care is certainly one of the fastest-growing major markets worldwide, despite the gradual abatement of the Covid-19 threat. In 2020, “[s]harp increases in government spending on health at all country income levels underpinned the rise in health spending to a new high of US $9 trillion (approximately 11% of global GDP).” [See source.] “Health spending is projected to return to an annual g…
Inspiration can come from anywhere, so why not a fortune cookie? The fortune read, “Life is like a mirror. When you smile into it, it smiles back. When you frown at it, it frowns in return.”
Let’s not get too metaphysical here, but there is a certain basic truth to this observation. Just as clear glass allows light to pass through unfiltered, but stained glass changes the color of the beams. O…
Executives often ask us why they should have to invest in their careers.
In the early part of your career, investment is indeed less necessary. But as you age and the telephone stops bringing hungry headhunters, investment begins to seem more reasonable. After all, your career is your most valuable pre-retirement asset. Increasing its worth through judicious investment only makes sense. And…
As an executive, you may feel that your career options are limited by your industry, your role, your location, your income requirements, and, of course, personal concerns.
We might like to politely disagree with this assessment, excluding the personal concerns parameter, of course.
You see, many of our clients either come to us wanting to change some of those parameters (particularly their in…
Before we look at this industry in detail let us first rise to the 30,000-foot altitude and look at the landscape for a moment. Many sources offer such perspectives but one interesting source took the abstraction to an unusual level. They focused mainly on emotional motivation. Paraphrasing this source:
It’s true. Call it a tsunami, a surge, or an avalanche, but when human resources and hiring managers come back from their summer holidays (in the northern hemisphere) they usually publish a slew of want ads, engage search firms, and otherwise seek to catch up on hiring candidates for all of those open positions they failed to fill so far this year.
