Lets Make People Management "Simple"

Tony Perkins - Thursday, April 11, 2013

I often visit small and growing businesses to discuss with them their people management needs. Their need is a very simple one - "I just want to treat my people right and make sure I am compliant". Unfortunately,until recently, that need could not be addressed in a simple manner and many employers would place the need in the "too hard" basket.   read more

A Lesson In Expectation Management

Tony Perkins - Tuesday, August 02, 2011

Today I was almost involved in an accident in my car. I was driving along the road, the last of three cars travelling along a suburban street. Up ahead was a side street with one car waiting to turn out and another waiting to turn into it. Unexpectantly, the first of the two cars ahead of me suddenly stopped to let these two cars exit and enter the side street. Taken by surprise, both I and the driver of the second car braked hard. Unfortunately, the second car was unable to stop in time and drove straight into the rear of the first car, which then crashed into both the cars turning. Luckily, I was travelling far enough behind to avoid being physically involved and my car was undamaged - something I can not say for the other 4 cars involved. read more
