Job Market Up, How Smaller Companies Can Compete

Job Market Up, How Smaller Companies Can Compete

The job market has changed over the last five to ten years. There are now a total of thirteen million new jobs. Taken this in to consideration this figure and why it matters, it shows where the job market currently is verses what it was a few years ago.  

One of the changes that have come as a result of this is that the balance of power has shifted from employers to employees. Employees now have more to leverage on their side. A recent poll of HR professionals that was done by Deloitte showed that the number one focus of companies is retention. Keeping employees happy and giving them a sense of stability within a company.

Inspiration Along The Way

From the time the S.H.A.R.E.™ Tools were conceived, October 1984, to the time we published the e-book, January 2014, we had a lot to wrestle with.  Our first big concern was whether the Tools worked as we believed they did.  So, we went into an R&D mode.  For the next few years we developed new courses, tested our assumptions and we were constantly satisfied with how well they worked.  Our S.H.A.R.E.™ Tools course ratings far exceeded our regular workshops and our feedback and participant appreciation was exceptional.

Our next concern was to really understand what was actually happening for class participants.  We could see and so could the other students that people were making progress in their ability to interact with others.  But it was not easy to articulate the benefits.  We could be so thrilled by comments from students in our "Getting and Staying Close to Clients™" workshop students, "I am so excited about this work, I can't wait to get home to my wife and try this out."   How does one put "thrilled" into words or how do you express "excited" in a way that others can understand what is actually happening?

Why Three Authors?

Collaboration brought you Revolutionary Conversations™

Occasionally, we’ve been asked why three authors for one book. Interestingly, it’s a question I’ve asked myself many times. In the beginning, some 30 years ago, Gloria Axelrod Goforth and I tried several times to produce a book and I’ve attempted to go it alone at least once. We were unsuccessful with our efforts to create a book, but we continued to use the S.H.A.R.E. ™ Tools with clients, colleagues and friends, learning along the way and building a deeper understanding of how conversations work. The book seemed to come together on its own time as the right people were pulled into the circle of collaboration to make it a reality.

Engagement & Revolutionary Conversations™

Businesses today are focused on “engagement” whether they know it or not. Every business wants its customers/clients to be involved in very special and successful ways. Every business wants customers to keep that business top of mind and to appreciate the value-adds that the business brings to the table. In essence, whether through an overt or a less focused approach, businesses want good relationships with customers. They want them engaged.

The same goes for the team members, and rightfully so. Gallup has identified that disengaged and marginally involved personnel cost the American business community between $400 and $500 billion annually. Something like 70% of the workforce is not totally engaged with the business. That’s almost a built-in inefficiency factor. And that means that engagement has to be item #1 or #2 on any business’s strategic to-do list.
