80% of South African companies have proved interview tests play a very important role in
choosing the right employee for the right job
The season for "hunting" for new employees is on its way. And I urge you to consider new possibilities when searching for a person to fill a specific position. Recruitment tests will help you separate the right candidates from the ordinary!
Feedback from people who have used these tools has been so positive that they're now boasting about how well-trained and efficient their employees are.
How to tell your employee his work won't get the results he wants
The second instance, is when your employee does something that isn't necessarily wrong, but won't get the results he's trying to achieve, isn't as clear-cut as the first. It requires a 'compassionate revelation', which involves revealing the consequences of your team member's action to him truthfully and compassionately.
For example, Peter puts a proposal on your desk that in your opinion, you think he must re-write. Most of us would say something like, 'Peter, I'm sorry to have to tell you this even though it's for your own good. Your proposal won't work. You'll have to rewrite it if you want a chance at getting the business.'
The more effective and less demoralising way to handle a situation like this one is to say, 'Peter, in my experience, this proposal isn't going to produce the result I think you want. Let's talk about it and determine what could get us the business.'
So the next time you start criticising an employee, stop yourself. Apply one of these guidelines to ensure you get the results you want. This should always be to motivate your team members to do something right or better in future.
