The most needed discussion today is “how do I manage a remote workforce, especially one that has been forced into the role rather than a volunteer.” This podcast looks at what and how do we convey expectations of team members working from home, what we should expect from them and what should they expect of us.

He has developed a high-performance culture mixing independent behavior yet inspiring team interaction. Dave has been a speaker and presenter at numerous recruitment focused events including the Recruitment Agency Expo in London, the National Association of Personnel Services (NAPS) Annual Conference in the US, and most recently at NPAworldwide conferences on 5 continents including events in Dublin-Ireland, Melbourne-Australia, Beijing-China, Sao Paulo-Brazil, and Las Vegas-US.

004: A Conversation with Jill Hickman
If the thought of building a strategic plan makes your eyes glaze over, welcome to the club. Harvard Business Review has a library of articles on the importance and how to’s of building a strategic plan. Yet, I’ve found most approaches stay in the realm of concept without implementation at an operating level. Until I met Jill. I still vividly remember when I first saw our next guest Jill Hickman in action. She was facilitating a Board of Directors retreat that I had been a part of and I was amazed by the way she created synergy and wrangled naysayers and outliers and developed this vibrant energy. The reason why I wanted her to be a guest on our show is because strategic planning is a gift for her. But more importantly, it is her process to move it from the vague, feel-good event to a key part of a tactical executable plan. The term strategic planning for many people causes their eyes to roll towards the back of their head because people get caught up in meetings and discussions don't come out with anything that is executable. For more than 20 years, the Jill Hickman Company has been providing coaching and consulting services to executive leaders, creating corporate universities and facilitating strategic planning retreats for teams and Boards. Jill's extensive corporate background spans both public and private sectors from small startup firms to Fortune 500 companies, including those in manufacturing, healthcare, retail, and business services. Her entrepreneurial spirit has built an amazing company with a global reach.
