Your Job Description Matters More Now Than EVER Before!
In this episode we featured initially on LinkedIn Live, I take a deep dive into an absolutely critical topic for employers - writing a great job description. I sit down with Cory Berg and Anthony Garone, who provide valuable insight into how companies need to realize the value in a proper job description.
We talk about some of the bad techniques of creating a job description. Copy and paste from another larger company? Cory calls it "copy pasta" - nobody wants to eat it. We talk about the legal content contained in some, and the lack of understanding of what a potential hire wants to see from the company he or she is going to dedicate their professional lives to!
We dive into ways a company can overcome negative reviews about themselves, how to attract the people that want to be a part of the organization, and how incredibly different the quality and quantity of applicants can be when crafting a proper description.

Salary Negotiating 101: Insights from Experts
In this episode we dive into a topic that resonates with all of us: salary negotiation. I'm your host, Allen Plunkett, and joining me on this episode are three remarkable guests, Amy Ancira from HireBetter, Keld Jensen from Thunderbird School of Global Management, and Rinkan Patel, a friend and seasoned professional with expertise spanning various industries.
In this episode, we explore the art of negotiation from different angles. Amy kicks off the discussion by shedding light on the importance of creating safe spaces for open conversations between employees and employers.
Keld Jensen, drawing from his extensive negotiation experience, shares invaluable insights on transforming negotiation from a confrontational win-lose scenario to a collaborative venture where both parties gain asymmetric value.
Rinkan Patel, in his dual role as a hiring manager and a candidate, emphasizes the significance of preparation, realistic expectations, and recognizing various levers of compensation in negotiation.
The conversation also touches on the evolving landscape of remote work and the challenges it presents for both employers and employees.
So, if you're looking to understand the dynamics involved before you walk into that negotiation, you won't want to miss this insightful episode.
Remember, negotiation isn't a conflict; it's a collaboration where both sides can find value and achieve their goals.
Thanks again for listening to Rewired Mind.

Hannah Nokes and Creating Social Impact to Supercharge Profitability
I was very excited to have Hannah Nokes on one of my LinkedIn Live sessions las year. We talked about her book, Magnify Your Impact, a great book about igniting your company’s purpose into action.
We talked about how she came to know Maggie Miller (her co-author) and how challenges they faced in their business led them to write the book. She also talks about her background at EZCorp, and how she fell in love with the ideals of a company that uses their resources to make an impact in the community, especially in a way that can provide a benefit to the organization.
We also discuss how employees can help and how to make an impact that is real, focused, and is backed with real action. We talk about the reluctance on the part of business owners, and how we overcome it.
That leads more into her experience, and how it led to the book. We talk about the 4-step process in Magnify your Impact and how it can help your business, impact pillars, and how these tools can drive profitability for your company.
Enjoy the episode!

Should You Take that Counter Offer? Should You Offer One?
Welcome back! It's been a crazy year and while we are starting up yet another season of Rewired Mind, it's a bit different than you've come to expect. This season I'm featuring the audio version of many of my LinkedIn live sessions. I considered the time constraints I have (that most of us have, really) and decided that, while I loved doing the book reviews with colleagues, it took a significant amount of time to coordinate. But I still wanted to publish useful content. After looking at the LinkedIn Live archive that we've built up and the interesting insights I got from those friends and colleagues I spoke with over the last couple of years, I decided to release the audio only version. I hope that you'll find some source of inspiration or insight from these business leaders and professionals!
I jump in with Nick Morrison founder of Potere, and Teresa Marzolph founder of Culture Engineered, on the subject of taking or making a counter offer. This was originally recorded in July of 2021, and while it pre-dated a lot of the shift we've seen in the workplace, the interesting thing is how both my guests led with predictions for the near future that we are still seeing today.
I hope that you'll enjoy all three of our perspectives. I think the fun part of this one was the unique perspectives that we have on the topic.
Enjoy, and I hope that you'll join me for more of these recorded sessions.
Winning the Job Search: Navigating Misconceptions and Finding Success
In this episode of Rewired Mind, I sit down with Anthony Garone and Ellis Fitch, founders of Edify Content and authors of the book "Winning the Job Search: The Hard Truth About Getting Hired." Joining me as co-host is Kelly Geary, bringing a tremendous amount of experience in the industry.
We start with a discussion about the relevance of the book amidst the unpredictable job market, especially during and post-COVID. Anthony and Ellis share their personal experiences of getting laid off and witnessing others facing similar challenges, and highlight the need for practical guidance in the job search.
This book should be included in graduation gift bags and college curriculums, according to Kelly, and I couldn't agree more! She talks about the value of preparing emotionally and investing time in job search preparation, which can significantly impact the length and difficulty of the journey.
Ellis's perspective in this book also adds a fresh take on job searching, particularly for women. Anthony, a self-described introvert, explains that introversion doesn't equate to avoiding difficult conversations; it's more about losing energy in social interactions. We talk about the tension between their viewpoints, which provides readers with a broader understanding of job search strategies and the different challenges for different types of people.
We also talk about the book's misconceptions and the intention behind each chapter's titles.
Join me and Kelly Geary in this enlightening conversation that challenges conventional wisdom and offers practical insights into winning the job search game.
