So I've just finished my first 4 weeks with Realia Marketing and thought it's about time I write a blog again!
A lot of people have asked why I left recruitment and moved into the marketing space. There's normally follow up questions like "but how do you know so much on marketing?".
But I've always felt that Recruitment is Marketing.
Building rapport is an art form.
It's not easy. It's a true skill. And like any other skill it's something that can be mastered through dedication and practice.
If you can master the art of communication you will be able to close major deals, hire the best and navigate your way up both the social and career ladder.
It's not a mistake that all great leaders are great communicators. If you want to be like them, you need to master this art!
Experts say that there are ten techniques for building quick rapport with anyone (handy for clients, suppliers and new bosses!).
In today's blog, I'm going to quickly go over all ten techniques and some tips to help you practice (these would also come in handy for training sales teams)
Today's world is a funny one!
No I don't mean Donald Trump's rise in politics or how AR is beginning to help clinics diagnose and treat patients half way across the globe (although that is pretty amazing!)
I'm talking about how our human biology isn't built for today's world and challenges!
You may be wondering why I am only just posting a blog on goals for 2016....
Yes 2016 goals should be started in January to maximise the year, but as I was away travelling, I thought it would be best to wait until I got back to the UK.
I guess I'm going to have to work extra hard for the rest of the year to make up for lost time!
So over the Christmas period, I was lucky enough to spend two great months in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
Alot of people asked me why I chose Chiang Mai as a destination and I guess there were lots of reasons in the end...
I'd been researching different places to stay using Nomad List. Nomad list is basically a website where travellers can leave reviews and scores on different locations, you can rate cities on all different things, such as: cost of living, weather, air purity, fun and more.
Think of it as a tripadvisor for travellers!
Chiang Mai was the best rated city in the world to travel. It seemed to cover everything we (my fiancée and I) were looking for; hot, interesting, cheap, good places to work and great food.
Outside of your Senior Management team, not many people will have as much an impact on your culture and revenue - that's why it's so important to get the Senior Management hires right!
So how do you do this?
When thinking of negotiation most people think of two corporate CEO's using their wit, charm and improvisation to get a deal that suits them!...
But this isn't the case. In fact the part people think of is actually the last part of negotiation, plenty of work goes on before the two big CEO's even talk!
There are three dimensions to successful negotiation; The Set Up, Building a Structure and The Discussion.
Ok, first things first. Sorry I've been away for 3 months! (Where has the time gone?!)
I've been working away on a full time project that entailed a lot of travelling and hours and this made it difficult to find the time to write good, quality content for you guys.
Let's face it, nobody wants trash emailed through to their inbox!
I've decided to broaden the subjects I cover in this blog. As well as recruitment advice & trends, I'll also be covering sales techniques, lifestyle, communication advice, ongoing live projects and general business talk and ideas.
Being involved in the Start Up world , I get to see many different forms of technology and online platforms.
With this in mind, I wanted to share with you the technology that is set to change the game of recruitment!
Of course recruitment will always be people based but as we've seen over the past 4 years, technology is an ever - increasing part of it.....
Not to mention that they should make your recruitment strategy more effective and efficient!
Way back in 1913, a French Engineer called Maximilian Ringlemann completed a study in which he confirmed that the power of two animals pulling a cart was not double the power of a single animal pulling it.
Wanting to explore things further, Maximilian had several men pull a rope and measured the force applied by each individual. He found that if two people were pulling together each invested 93% of their individual strength, 3 people it dropped to 85% and with 8 people lulling the rope? It dropped to just 49%!
