Entrepreneurs’ Tips to Making Good Business Decisions

Entrepreneurs are considered serial decision makers because they make lots of decisions every day and are generally wired to be risk takers and aren’t afraid of learning from their mistakes. Decision-making usually comes easier to entrepreneurs and high “D” personalities versus people who tend to be more risk averse. For those in which decision-making is more natural, you should focus on improving the quality of your decisions.  For those in which decisions are harder to make, you need to focus on following effective decision making steps and using techniques to help synthesize information.  Then, act upon those decisions that you have made rather than procrastinating.

Good decisions require a person

Knowing Yourself and the DiSC Profile

Knowing yourself is defined as having a clear perception of your personality and work style, including your strengths, weaknesses, thoughts, beliefs, motivation, and emotions and is the first step to becoming more effective to working with others.

There are many personality instruments that make it easy for people to understand who they are and how they work better, but we believe the DiSC assessment is the best for career development, talent redeployment, and outplacement. Unlike assessments such as the Myers-Briggs, StrengthFinder, and the Birkman, DiSC is really useful in helping people make informed career decisions as well as helps people identify and develop areas of weakness that hold them back from attaining their next career move.  This assessment provides a wealth of information about their workplace priorities and

Are Outplacement Providers keeping up with HR Analytics?

CaptureAre Outplacement Providers keeping up with HR analytics? Over the last year, I’ve read time and time again that HR is sitting on a gold mine of data about their workforce. The only problem is most companies and HR executives don’t have the tools to access the “data” in order to make sound business decisions. A new generation of SaaS based analytics software is allowing organizations to access employee data more efficiently and reliably as well as message it in a way that is presentable to company executives.

The world of outplacement is no different. Over the years, outplacement providers have struggled with providing real time analytics to their clients because of the traditional nature in the

Right Management vs Careerminds

The Wall Street Journal recently reported that companies are spending less on outplacement services to help laid-off workers. As a result, displaced employees are receiving shorter outplacement programs and being pushed to use online services. This puts a lot of pressure on traditional outplacement firms, such as Right Management to keep up with the technology demands of the market. As companies are shrinking outplacement budgets, the need to pay for real estate and offices becomes less important. The reality is today’s workforce is much different and so is how you find a job. Careerminds has taken bold steps to increase both the amount of outplacement services provided and offer additional resources that are most important to a job seeker-all at a lower cost for employers.
