Every business owner leverages unique opportunities for success. Whether it’s seasonal sales, new product launches, announcing an IPO, or the beginning of a new decade, opportunities afford leaders time, events, and built-in inspiration to motivate the team with confidence and forward momentum.
Each year the president at Core Technology Solutions, Vivian Ford, sets aside a day early in the month of January to gather her team and roll out the vision for new initiatives, new processes, and new goals for greater success in the year ahead. In a business that provides top IT talent to Fortune 500 global enterprises as well as regional and local companies, it is vital that relationships inside and outside the headquarters are in sync with the ultimate objectives of leadership, and thus the success of the company as a whole.
“Our annual kick-off meeting is vital for our growth each year. We look back realistically to the accomplishments of the past, but focus on the potential opportunities of the coming year. It’s not just my vision; it’s what we as leaders feel is best for the overall success of the company. My desire is that each staff member will internalize the vision and then personalize it. I want to see each one catch the wind in their own sails, which ultimately moves the entire ship forward.”
Today, Jeff Rogers, Director of Business Development, will take the team through the details of this vision and define what success will look like from day-to-day and quarter-to-quarter. In 2020, the vision for success couldn’t be more clear: Build those relationships with clients, candidates, and industry professionals that will heighten awareness of specific needs, realistic expectations, and valuable resources that combined will provide the best IT solutions that have defined our success for over 30 years.
Recruiting guru Greg Savage describes what sets apart the best recruiting professionals from the pack:
“Evaluating, persuading, assessing, negotiating, advising, consulting, influencing and acting as an advocate for employers and candidates will still have tremendous value. In fact, increasing value.
…there will continue to be a market for tailored, personalised, high-quality business solutions based on an advisory, consultative model, where access to talent is the differentiator.”Recruiters. Competing on Speed and Price Alone is Suicide. November 27, 2019.
In other words, to be successful recruiting top talent consistently, you should advocate on behalf of your clients, not simply try to sell them a commodity. And that’s where relationships enter into the equation.
By the end of the day today at the CTS offices, each team member will be able to hit the ground running on Monday, inspired by those milestones that created remarkable success last year and motivated by new opportunities that will undoubtedly come into focus as 2020 takes off.
