November - Management for the Rest of Us

For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, the days are getting shorter and energy levels are rock bottom by home time. If like me you’d rather be hibernating, take heart from the article on power naps and learn how to claw back energy from your working day.

A friend’s recent hiring distress prompted me to write an article for people new to interviewing. There are literally thousands of websites on how to get through an interview, but very few written from the interviewers perspective. Hiring employees is tough enough without having your own nerves to contend with, so use the interviewer interview questions to kick start your hiring process.

1. Perform Better With Power Naps
The case for power naps is simple. Our jobs require us to be at our mental best – we need to be alert, interpersonally effective, creative and have a good memory. Understanding your natural everyday energy peaks and troughs can help maximise your performance at work and leave an abundance of energy for your life outside of work. And all this from a short power nap!

Do you find interviews intimidating? (As an interviewer, I mean). Most managers find the first few interviews scarier than being interviewed themselves. Here are seven interviewer interview questions to beat first time interviewer nerves and help find the right person for the job.
