Relaxing "me" tiem meaning simply pampering yourself is likely to do you a world of good and helps to lift your spirits as you step rather reluctantly into winter. So, visit your local beauty salon/SPA to help ease you into winter.

How to Approuch an Interview

I don't think I have ever met anyone that thinks they are a bad interviewer. Just like everyone believes that they are a good driver, but if it was so we would not have any accident on the road now would we? So to can job failure be attributed to poor selection in the firtst place. Many research has shown that predictions made at interviews often fail because of bias, failure to get the information required, or inability to interpret the information. To avoid these problems you need to adopt a systematic approach. In the beauty industry a lot of salons only ask the therapist to do a short massage as well as a manicure or even a facial, later on ones they are hired and they cannot improve their monthly figures we question why, but has the therapist been interviewed as a sales person as well. Lets face it, most of the profit comes from the sales you do on products, so why is it that no one interviews keeping this in mind? This is why you need to consider the mehtod of interviewing you use, how to conduct the interview and how to evaute the results.

An interview is basically described as a conversation with a purpose. The candidate should be drawn out to talk freely about himself and her career. The interviewer should restrict herself to asking questions and making encouraging grunts. Open ended questions will poduce the most informative answers, "yes or no" questions should be avoided as far as possible. By asking "tell me about your present job" you will get most of what you want to know and gaps can be filled in by asking follow up questions. Avoid leading questions which indicate the answer you are expecting. The interview must also provides the candidate with information about the job and the company so that they can also make a good informed decision without any suprises later on.

Next week I will continue my blog with Conducting the Interview and how to plan.

Fathers Day!

What a special day, I don't know about you but I am definitely a Daddy's Girl and my father has a big influence on my life and also who I became. Thinking from a business perspective this is also one of the biggest celebrated days next to Valentines day and Monthers day, so some thought must definitely be put into it.

Right now at this very second, people are walking around, browsing the internet etc on what to get for their fathers. Will you be the one they find offering them the perfect gift? Make yourself visible so that people don't have to look far before they find you, and with the irresistable offers from Dr Baumann you also have the right product backing you that will be alluring enough for them. 

As promised today I will talk a bit more about what type of Characteristics Organizations should have to be able to be innovating.

1.  A free flow of information which allows executives to find ideas in unexpected places and pushes them to combine fragments of information.

2. Close and frequent contact between departments, and an emphasis on lateral as well as vertical relationships providing resources, information and support.

3. A tradition of working in teams and sharing credits.

4. Serior executives who believe in innovation and will make the neccessary resources available

5. Managers with the ability and desire to seize opportunities and to make time available for innovation.  

I hope all of you celebrate not just on fathers day but the whole week and thank our fantastic fathers for being their for us whenever we need them and for supporting us.

Happy Fathers Day
