Why We Should All Help Entrepreneurs & Leaders

 
 

While I’ve been writing a lot lately on the subject of hiring, the subject and its application is far broader. Hiring requires knowledge of people.

Knowledge of people is useful in every aspect of life.

You will find my articles simple, because the basics of any subject are simple. When life or business gets complex, it’s gone off track.

Why we should all help entrepreneurs and leaders

It is my observation and belief that entrepreneurs and artist make the world a much more interesting place! These people create the businesses and jobs for everyone.

Imagine a world without music, computers, start-ups, new technologies, movies etc. Every single one starts with an idea.

Artists and entrepreneurs create these ideas and these are brought to life by managers and leaders and the hard working, valuable people of the world.

People don’t go home at the end of the week looking to consume the products of accountants or lawyers! 

You go home looking...

The Definition of Work

 

Not all work is created equal, that’s obvious. Some people think work is looking “busy”, or turning up and sitting in a chair. Some people’s “work” has to be fixed, re-done, and some people’s work is highly valuable.

The word “work” has gotten confused. So let’s clarify what we mean by the word “work.”

An activity involving mental or physical effort done in order to achieve a result.

But we don’t want any result. We want valuable results. So I’ve coined the term Vwork which means Valuable work.

The flip side is Xwork work is eXtra Work that is not valuable. Xwork is any time-wasting activity that produces no result and adds no value to your organization (or life).

Dwork is Destructive work. It is the complete opposite of Vwork. It has negative value. It ruins, harms and tears down what you’ve built.

With these new words, we now know exactly the kind of results we want in our...

Failed Hiring? Need to find someone quick?

 
 

You thought this was going to work out great, but now, after a few weeks, months or years, you realised you’ve hired the wrong person.

They might have lied in the interview, made promises they didn’t keep, or committed to a start date and then took another job offer.

Now you have to start all over again.

One of my clients previously spent $24,000, hired the wrong person, fired them and had to start over. He was very disappointed, but he was one of the lucky ones.

Others I know have had new recruits cause so much damage it costs several hundred thousand in lost business and legal fees.

There is a better way. You can decide to control your entire hiring process and learn how to attract valuable people or, if you’re a little pressed for time, we can do it with you.

The Vwork Hiring System provides a step-by-step process, from designing the role specifications, to advertising, the interview process, all the way through to making the...

The Weinstein (& Lauer) Effect: Dwork Predators

 
 

What do Harvey Weinstein, Matt Lauer and others predators have in common?

Dwork

Dwork is defined as Destructive Work.

Activity involving mental or physical effort done in order to achieve a destructive purpose or result.

Dwork People ruin people’s lives, rob value from organisations and take the fun out of your life or career.

Sexual abuse is high on the Dwork scale. Murder is at the top with genocide even higher (e.g. Hitler).

Murder is an obvious example, but what about “slow murder”, or “death by a thousand paper cuts”. This goes on daily in every country, every society and many, many organisations.

It’s not easy to face that people deliberately create Dwork results. That’s why they get away with it so much. It’s harder when they are in a position of power, a media personality, rich business person, your boss or manager.

Why do people tolerate this behaviour?

Toxic People: The True Cost of a Destructive Person

 

Toxic people come in many forms: Manipulators, con-artists, haters, bad news merchants, thieves, critics, criminals, victims, and of course assholes!

No matter what you call them, or what they look like—they destroy and tear down the valuable people in business and businesses. That’s why I call them Dwork™ People. They are Destructive. They un-build people and businesses. It’s even worse when they are managers…

They are the opposite of Vwork People. Value is what you want in any relationship, business or personal.

Value is the degree to which someone or something is important or useful.

Then there’s those who aren’t downright destructive yet create an endless parade of extra or wasteful work. It may not be destructive but it isn’t valuable! These I call Xwork People—they create extra work.

Your ultimate success depends on surrounding yourself with Vwork People.

That is why hiring is so important in every organisation...

H.I.R.E? — The 8 Qualities of Valuable People

 

People … staff … contractors … managers … clients … women … men …

Love them or hate them, you have to deal with them unless you are going to go and live under a rock. You wouldn’t make much of an impact on the world and I’ll bet you’d get lonely sooner or later.

Does the perfect person exist? No, but everyone can work on it.

Imagine a person who:

  1. Is willing to help, benefit and serve others.
  2. Takes control of situations and make it come out right.
  3. Who really cares, and takes responsibility for mistakes.
  4. Communicates what you need to know, so you can make correct decisions.
  5. Is interested in you, your organisation and their job.
  6. Keeps their promises and follows through on deadlines.
  7. Is a fit for their role and the culture of your organisation.
  8. Delivers valuable results and makes statistics grow.

Sounds like a dream, but almost everyone is capable of these qualities.
