Media Room: Sample Interview Questions and Talking Points for Reporters
This book is for you if:
You’ve ever lost a great employee to another company, and it wasn’t about the money. An unhappy employee leaves for a 5% pay increase; it takes a 20% increase to compel a satisfied employee to jump ship.
You struggle with when to be fair and when to be firm.
You’d like to get results but don’t want to do so with a trail of disgruntled employees in your wake.
You’ve made bad hires in the past.
A bad hire costs the company about 1–4 times that person’s annual salary.
You don’t seem to get your messages across too well.
You spend too much time at the office.
Get back 10 to 20 hours of your week by NOT telling people what to do but by developing direct reports and making them accountable for results.
Your direct reports are bored or frustrated.
Only 20% of employees feel their strengths are utilized. When people don’t feel they are being challenged and appreciated for their talents, they leave.
You’re seeking ways to conduct behavior-changing performance appraisals.
You want to conduct better meetings.
When all is said and done, there’s a lot more said than done in meetings. Learn how make the best use of everyone’s time and put plans into action.
