The Power of Language

Written by
Over the past year I’ve been spending quite a bit a time in various courses and seminars on how to grow and run a business.  Of all the insightful and interesting things these hours of learning have covered, one of the most impactful “nuggets” I took away was the incredible power of language, the words we use in our day to day lives, both professionally and personally, and the direct correlation that language has on the quality of our lives. Here are 4 effective guidelines to consider:
Deloitte’s Talent Edge 2020 Report polled over 300 global business executives across industries validating what those of us who live and work in the Silicon Valley know all too well: national high unemployment rates have not created the predicted talent surplus.  On the contrary, Deloitte’s research showed that executives predict talent shortages across key business units.
I just finished reading an article in a February issue of Business Journal entitled, “Young Silicon Valley Entrepreneurs Lament Talent Crunch”. Armada’s clients, both large and small, encounter the same recruiting and staffing challenges noted in Shana’s article on the young entrepreneurs participating in a recent Stanford Panel discussion. I agree with Corey Resse’s contention that, “Recruiting is the most challenging thing in today’s market. There’s no one silver bullet in this market. Try everything.”  I would add that challenge is not unique to today’s market as it is ALWAYS difficult to find exceptional talent and you should be partnering with the right providers to ensure you are securing extraordinary talent.
