The April 2016 issue of People & Purpose – Positive Leadership Journal is now available. The new multimedia issue exploring business growth, high performance and employee engagement is available free at www.peopleandpurposejournal.com and on iTunes and Google Play.
When asked about this issue of People & Purpose, Eszter Molnar Mills, Editor-in-Chief said “At this time of year our thinking naturally turns to new starts and growth. An entrepreneurial approach, a focus on opportunities supported by appropriate systems and excellent people are three key drivers for business growth. The need for a growth mindset applies as much to business owners as corporate intrapreneurs, and for organisations of all sizes and in every stage of the maturity cycle.”
In the current edition leaders have the opportunity to explore:
Business strategies for start-up growth – Boomy Tokan, business adviser and growth specialist shares his key tips for business start-ups, and strategies to achieve the dream of starting and owning a successful business. “One cannot bypass the learning curve” Tokan adds and highlights the need for long-term thinking for growth.
Ensure that people know what is expected of them – 6 ways to set clear expectations for high performance are provided by Eszter Molnar Mills.
Being human… – Judy Apps shares why and how people should communicate and connect with others on a human level.
Gold standard strategies for selection – Following on from the previous edition, Fiona McPhail shares strategies for effective employee selection, highlighting the importance of robust selection criteria for decision making.
