Ep 487: Focus

27m · Published 21 Dec 07:00
As an end-of-year special, this week is productivity week on the podcast.  With so much going on and so many competing pressures, I know that everyone listening will, at least at some point in 2022, have had challenges with focus and information overload. Talent Acquisition is evolving quickly, and managing attention and processing information are vital skills that aren't highlighted as much as they should be. A couple of days ago, in Episode 486, we looked at managing information overload when I spoke to Tiago Forte, the inventor of the Building a Second Brain system of personal knowledge management.  In this episode, I want to focus on focus, and my guest is author and speaker Erik Qualman. In 2009 Erik wrote a hugely influential book predicting the rise of social media called Socianomics, and since then has written extensively on digital leadership. His most recent book is The Focus Project which highlights the problems humans have focusing in our hyper-connected world and explores some of the potential solutions that can help us. In the interview, we discuss: The Focus Project Focusing on the big, not the busy Focus is hard in an unfocused world. The importance of systems and process Progress not perfection Saying no a lot Having more time is not the solution. Attacking the one big thing before the day attacks you The power of sleep Spotting patterns, time fencing and the 20/20/20 rule How can employers support focus?

Ep 485: What Will Replace Resumes?

20m · Published 17 Dec 08:07
The death of the resume has long been predicted. It is widely acknowledged that they are ineffective and prone to promoting bias, but alternative approaches have yet to achieve universal adoption. However, with many employers moving towards skills and competency-based hiring and technology continuing to drive rapid change in recruiting, are the days of the resume finally numbered? My guest this week is Maya Huber, Co-Founder and CEO of the competencies-based sourcing platform TaTiO. Maya has a PHD in Job Analysis and some fascinating insights into practical ways of moving on from the resume and making hiring more efficient, inclusive and effective. In the interview, we discuss: The ineffectiveness of resumes The danger of assessing just on words and stories Skills-based hiring versus competency-based hiring Testing performance in its context Reducing the administrative burden for recruiters Job simulation Job analysis The hiring outcomes of competency-based assessment What should companies expect from the future of work?

Ep 484: Innovation and Skills-Based Hiring

The pace of business change is continuing to accelerate. According to a recent McKinsey Global Survey, business leaders expect that by 2026, half of their companies' revenues will come from products, services, or businesses that haven't been invented yet. Innovation is critical for companies to survive and thrive. So how can employers ensure they have talent strategies in place to have the right skills to create and drive new ideas forward, and could innovation be the catalyst that accelerates skills-based hiring? My guest this week is Mauro Porcini, PepsiCo's first ever Chief Design Officer and author of a new book on people-centric innovation. In the book, Mauro does a deep dive into the skills, culture, and philosophy companies need to innovate.
