    You're Fired! Best Practices for Terminations in Small Business

    in Business

    You're Fired!


    When was the first time you had to fire an employee/contractor? How did the termination go? As small business owners we often forget that there has to be a strategy in place to terminate employees who are underperforming, or who's positions may need to be eliminated. But how do you manage the process without causing any backlash while preserving dignity...and keeping your company compliant?


    Sometimes when you fire people, it can go really wrong. But if you have a policy in place and an exit interview system in place, you can make an already uncomfortable experience easier to deal with for both parties. Tune in as I talk about best practices in terminations, how to create an effective termination policy, and how to keep things moving smoothly after terminations.

    Oso Landslide ~ What really happened...

    in Legal

    This week we will be examining & discussing the events that led up to the Oso Landslide. This was a disaster that never had to happen but it did. Why? It was a culmination of greed, corruption & ineptitude that was responsible for the tragic loss of life that will forever be a part of our being in the Northwest. From a county exec & local senator who cared more about the builders & lining their pockets, to the Snohomish County Department of Emergency Management employee who left as the director of FEMA region 10 because it was discovered that he had a diploma from a diploma mill after a series of embarrasing emails in connetion with "Brownie" from the Katrina post catastrophe about "who was gonna git the perdiest suits" to this same man writing out a statement that all was safe at Steelhead when it was clearly KNOWN it was not. So while these people set in motion the unfathomable loss of life suffered that day, they were having affairs out of state on the taxpayer dime, running their own businesses & bidding for govt contracts while they were supposed to be taking care of residents safety. Meanwhile the DNR (Department of Natural Resources) was lining their pockets while the timber companies were clearcutting on unstable lands & obviously cutting far beyond what was agreed. It was one big horrifc culmination of failures all across the board that killed 44 people that day.

    Making Waves and Positive Change in the World of Work

    in Business

    The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, December 17, 2014, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT).


    Last week we talked about how to legally leverage social media in the recruitment process, and this week we’re going to talk about how to make waves and initiate positive change.


    We should all step up and be the ones to initiate positive change in the world of work, instilling “wave-making” behaviors in others within their organization. By reinforcing our continuous desire to contribute and make a difference on an individual level, wave-making bridges the gap between that desire and the actions necessary to realize bigger changes and improve employee engagement.


    Change can be big or small. It is the act of stepping up that makes all the difference, as well as the ripple effect on those around.


    Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman for the last show of 2014 as we learn Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman for the last show of 2014 as we learn how to make waves and initiate positive change with this week’s guest: Patti Johnson, CEO of PeopleResults, a change and human capital consulting firm.

    GeoEngineering Watch (Chemtrails) w/guest Dane Wigington - DMN

    in News

    We welcome back Dane Wigington.


    Dane Wigington has an extensive background in solar energy. He is a former employee of Bechtel Power Corp. and was a licensed contractor in California and Arizona.


    His personal residence was featured in a cover article on the world’s largest renewable energy magazine, Home Power. He owns a 1,600-acre “wildlife preserve” next to Lake Shasta in Northern California.


    Dane focused his efforts and energy on the geoengineering issue when he began to lose very significant amounts of solar uptake due to ever-increasing “solar obscuration” caused from the aircraft spraying as he also noted significant decline in forest health and began testing and research into the geoengineering issue about a decade ago.


    He is the lead researcher for www.geoengineeringwatch.org and has investigated all levels of geo engineering from chemtrails to HAARP. He assisted with the production of “What in the World are They Spraying” and has appeared on an extensive number of interviews to explain the environmental dangers we face on a global level.

    How to Create a Safe Space for Your Propsects and Clients

    in Business

    In taking your prospects from resistant to sharing what’s really going on within their organizations to ready to share confidential information, salespeople must develop a certain amount of trust with their prospect.  Join us for this thoughtful interview with Maxine Attong about how to create a safe space for your prospects and clients.


    Maxine Attong is passionate about writing, facilitation and coaching.  She believes that these skills allow her to live her personal mission statement “To enhance the lives of the people with whom I make contact” 


    Attong is a Certified Management Accountant with over 20 years qualified experience in a range of industries—gas and oil, financial services, retail and manufacturing. 


    She is a Certified Professional Facilitator and a Certified Evidence Based Coach, and uses the magic of coaching to provide safe and confidential environments in which clients can achieve business or personal goals.    Maxine’s coaching style is based on the concepts of positive psychology.  She specializes in transition which she defines as “moving clients from where they are to where they want to be”.  In business, this translates to working with recent promotions, new hires (on boarding), and employees who may present an organizational challenge or executive coaching.


    Maxine is the also the author of two books – Change or Die and Lead Your Team To Win (GreenLeaf 2014).  “Lead Your Team To Win” shares an alternate leadership style that she developed after many years of leading and observing others lead teams.  She suggests that employee’s will achieve optimal performance when leaders provide a safe space within which they can take risks.
