November 2016

We hope this finds you well and finishing 2016 strong.  
At CMP, we have had an eventful 2016.  Overall, it has been a great year.
It is interesting to see the emergence of common issues across our client companies and industries.  Our objective in these newsletters is to provide you with information on these common and emerging issues, and more specifically share the insights that our clients have found useful. 
To that end, in this newsletter we have articles representing talent issues across our client organizations.  I suspect there is something below for you:
  • Get to the Core of Employee Engagement provides a concise overview of a new model for engaging your employees from the inside out.
  • Leveraging our Failure: Key Project Behaviors offers summary insights from years of learning the hard way.
  • Interviewing for Honesty: How to Spot Liars lists key indicators of dishonesty when screening candidates - this can help you avoid some bad hires.
We also provide information on our assessment for selection and assessment for development approaches.  And, if you have a few minutes, take the Career Wealth Indicator to uncover your current level of career engagement.
As always, we value your feedback.
Much Regards,
Joe Frodsham
