  • Hiring Great Employees Even During a Labor Shortage

    Brad Justus, Business Coach, Inspire Results Business Coaching

    Whether you own or manage a $500K business or a $50 million one, there are great people out there that would be great assets for your company. You just have to find them. This presentation will walk you through the process of identifying the culture you want your small business to have, including your beliefs, values, and “why.” Then, you’ll create interview questions based on your culture components to help you uncover whether job candidates match your culture. The closer an employee matches your company’s beliefs and values, the happier they’ll be, the harder they’ll work, and the longer they’ll stay. MORE >

  • Healing a Nation Through Common Ground Communication

    David Bennett, Owner, Common Ground Communication

    It is apparent over the last few years that the United States is deeply divided. There are not only many different perspectives but, those perspectives are often rigidly held. But, what can be done, and more importantly what can each of us do to bring the people of this country together? MORE >

    I believe it starts with each of us and our communication with our family, friends, and work colleagues. To bridge differences and promote understanding of different perspectives, we need to find common ground with one another. We need to find commonalities not just differences. We can start a dialogue with people we disagree with by first finding the areas on which we agree. It is clear that there are more areas on which we agree than on which we disagree, but we often lose perspective when someone challenges or disagrees with us.

    When we put this to work in our communication we develop "connections" with one another. This connection leads to a greater respect and understanding of diverse perspectives.

    I've seen this approach make a tremendous difference with people and groups. And it's not hard for people to adopt. They already have the skills needed. It's just matter of applying some existing skills differently, enhancing other skills, and putting it all together with every person with whom they interact in every conversation.

    I share my perspectives on how common ground connections can help bridge differences and bring people together with participants at conferences and meetings. I work with individuals and companies on identifying and resolving communication issues and improving existing communication skills.

    Now more than ever we need to communicate in such a way that we establish common ground connections with everyone. I hope to work with you in helping you do that.
