First of all, millennials are incredible people, and let me also share this major suggestion with you-not all millennial's are alike!

Measure Your Culture Down to Each Employee

By Tim Hagen on Tue,Jun 28,2016 @ 01:00 PM

If we cannot conduct workplace assessments or surveys without them having to be anonymous so we can get honest and straightforward answers doesn't that speak to our cultural based challenges? A culture should in fact have the ability for people to have direct conversations in interactions without fear or retribution. Measuring peoples engagement and understanding how each and every employee is answered positions each and every manager to have direct and targeted conversations. This is the only way a culture can truly be built on honesty saw cultural growth can be achieved with integrity!

Confidence - It's a personal thing

By Katie Allbee on Fri,May 06,2016 @ 09:35 AM

Have you ever had a friend or coworker that seemed to have it all, the great job, loving family, nice car, you name it? Has that same person still, despite all of their assets, lacked confidence? You can try telling that person that they have every reason to be confident in their life, many times having things that others only dream of having. It comes down to one simple fact: Confidence can’t be bestowed on someone; they have to foster it themselves. Just like Maria, from the Sound of Music, motivation comes from within. We all understand that confidence in your job leads to many successes, from pay to simply job satisfaction.

Rapid Coaching

By Tim Hagen on Wed,Nov 04,2015 @ 12:37 PM

It's a saying I hear all the time from managers, "I don't have time to coach!" However, there are two myths within management communities. First, managers coach already! A lack of coaching is a strong component of management, so if you don't like it, please find another job. Second, managers do have time to coach! No matter the department or manager, people run machines, computers, sales, customer service, etc. It is important to invest time in such a vital aspect of the work environment. People being the #1 asset should NOT be a cliche, rather something we live by and support through our leadership action.
