Why Is “Solve the People Puzzle” a CEO Must-Read?
Kathleen knows firsthand that CEOs are extremely busy. This is why her book is filled with practical knowledge about exactly how executives can find, keep, and grow the best talent for their companies. One of the first major insights she shares in the book is why letting go of your ego is essential to this process.
Today’s employees are in the driver’s seat, and they have a lot of choice when it comes to where to work. They also expect the employer-employee relationship to be mutually beneficial. This means that employers need to take a step back and do an HONEST assessment of their company. What do you offer in terms of culture, management, and compensation? What are your strengths and weaknesses? What do you have that other companies don’t? And are you being honest about your workplace environment? Selling yourself as Google-like doesn’t work if your culture isn’t actually anything like Google’s. So show candidates why they might actually prefer to work for you!
Treat Candidates Like Customers and Keep Growth in Mind
Remember: both customers and employees lead to increased profits. So you need to treat your recruitment process more like your sales process—and they should be equally emphasized. Additionally, you need to be looking for candidates who will advance your business, not just who will maintain the status quo. In order to attract the right people for the job, it might be time to look outside your industry or remove some of the filters you have placed on your search.
And what do you do once these fantastic employees are in place? Solve the People Puzzle is full of additional stories and recommendations that will guide you from recruitment to retention and engagement.
