As I work with Entrepreneurs, Employers, and Middle Managers, one of the issues each of these groups deals with is hiring and retaining good people. It becomes difficult to make the right choice. Sometimes it is a tough pool of candidates to choose from. There are some great ones out there, but they cost too much. There are much less expensive options but they are inexperienced or unqualified. Once employers finally have a pool of candidates, the task becomes one of choosing who is best suited to fill the position. And, let’s face it… Entrepreneurs, Employers, and Middle Managers can have what looks like the absolute right person and find out weeks or months later the person doesn’t fit or is leaving. Setting up successful hiring process IS ESSENTIAL.

4 Keys to Responsible Leadership | Own it or it will Own you
“Responsible Leadership – Own it or it will own you.” This was a phrase I used recently as I was working with a team around them taking responsibility. for themselves when dealing with conflict. I recently read two great blog posts by John C. Maxwell relating to this subject. No “Blamestorming” allowed and Responsibility: The First Step in Learning. From the Blamestorming article, Maxwell offers this: “Taking responsibility for your life, your actions, your mistakes, and your growth puts you in a place where you are always able to learn and often able to win.” And from the Responsibility article he offers: “When you take responsibility for yourself, you take responsibility for your learning.” I would add that when you take responsibility for yourself, you take control of you. What does that mean? Well, let’s go back to, “Own it or it will own you.” Responsible leadership calls us to this. There are a few thoughts that come to mind around this statement.
