Welcome to my blog


Having been a psychometric profiler for over fifteen years and been involved with many companies in both an active  management role in the UK and overseas, I would like to offer insights into the real value of soft skills to business owners.

Please feel free to contribute in a positive manner if possible.

Consider this

You recruit someone - you teach them to work for your business. You create a great team that works. Something happens and a key player needs to leave.

Ten to one you do not have a complete picture of what made the whole team successful.

So you start over and recruit - train someone to fit into the team, and thats only if you get the recruitment right for this team.

If you had a full team hard and soft skills BENCHMARK updated as the team grew - then you would know what to look for when you recruit, what should work and more importantly - what is likely to fail.

Time then to consider setting up a team benchmark before you lose someone from the team.

Call today to see just how easy this can be. - It could save you a lot of time and money.

Things change at a rapid pace in business - driven in the main by changes in technology.

Four generations of children have been brought up to sit in front of computers attached to their mobile phones where no one actually calls anyone any more - they just text (in every format)

Did you know the most common thing most people do when they wake up is...

Check their messages/ mails.

If one of the biggest complaints understood from business feedback sessions between employees and managers is "POOR COMMUNICATION"...

and this years top challenges for business owner/managers is going to be recruitment and retention...

How do we get people talking again?

To really know a person you need to look them in the eye and really listen to what they are saying.

This is why texting is winning - it is much better you dont really know me until it is too late...

I have developed a new, simple. positive communication package for business owners that allows everyone to really win by talking again.

This is a new app and I am looking for interested parties to help develop models for everyday business applications.

If you would like to help and have access to your own models free of charge please contact me.

In many ways this CEO gets to the heart of the matter about who is going to be right for the job in YOUR COMPANY.

The CV gives you a clue about what the candidate has achieved in the past but does not cover the soft skills that make up half of the candidates ability and desire to do what is required in your company,

She perfectly covers the point that just because someone has worked in a bigger company that looks like yours, their view of the working world has been coloured by the way a big company works.

Using our tools before you inteveiw will give an insight into the way a person really wants to get a job done. It allows you to ask the real questions you want answered but don't know how to ask,

It does of course help if you know what soft skills are important to your business and this can also be achieved before you interview, by looking closely at that role in your business today.

With our help you can walk the walk and talk the talk to limit the number of expensive mistakes you can make taking on new employees.

Ask for your free questionaire today to see just what we mean.

There are two main areas that I consider to be important for all managers in the coming year.

Every business manager is aware that BREXIT has been used as a scare base to try and convince the government not to take us out of Europe.

Many stories have been told about the downside of hard Brexit.

Very few propose that as managers, we get out into the world and negotiate new deals in areas that we have not been able to consider in the past.

Is this one of the areas I refer to for 2017 – NO

Our people are our biggest asset. They are also our biggest cost.

Managing ourselves and our staff more effectively during periods of higher risk is going to be essential.

If we look for and find any weakness in our approach, then it is incumbent on us to make changes this year.

• Every manager knows without being told that the greatest opportunity for managing people better is going to be led by better COMMUNICATION.

• Every manager knows, simply because this has been going wrong for so many years, that the greatest hindrance to performance is the annual appraisal.

Put these two together whilst at the same time being prepared to consider radical new methods for both and you could finally put an end to these two business frustrations in one fell swoop.

Do I have an answer for you? Well of course.

Can you make relatively simple changes to the way you do things at present with a view to getting increased productivity out of a happier workforce? YES.

Why not find out more –

just send me an e-mail with your name, company and a contact number and I will show you how.

Why should you bother to do this?

You have two choices as a manager.

1. – Do nothing – tomorrow will be the same as today but without any effort on your part.

2. – Reply to this article and try and find a way to prove me wrong – OR go along with my offer and try it at very little risk to you or your business. OUTLOOK – MORE PROFIT
