As many may know, I have a dog. She’s a rascally little dog determined to cause a bit of mischief. She’s a loving normal animal so it’s not unusual to see that she’s quite obsessed with all creatures big, small and smaller.
Many days, the dog can be found chasing after birds, ducks, cats, squirrels, pit bulls, poodles and chipmunks to name a few. Of course, most of those creatures are way too fast (or big and gruesome) for her to catch. Persistence is the key to life. So, sure enough, while on one of her walks, the dog caught something living. Upon further review, it turned out to be a chipmunk. So what does a little dog do with a chipmunk? Well, not much, and after a while she had to let it go (still alive actually).
How many of us have dreamed of catching our chipmunk? You know, that super star sales person or high level manager that will take our business to the next level. We dream of catching them. But what if we actually managed to hire that person and we just didn’t know what to do with them ? Meaning, we don’t have the infrastructure to support that person. It happens all the time, doesn’t it?
So with fall hiring season just around the corner, my hope for all is to not only seize the chipmunk, but also know how to best utilize that chipmunk once it’s seized. Of course, if you need help in creating that infrastructure, feel free to contact us at The HR Team.
