Helping a Client Find His Perfect Team Member

                                Matt was struggling to find the right person for the job, so he called us. 

Is the prospect of expanding your team causing you stress? A lot of agents took their businesses to the next level over the last few years and are considering expanding as a result. However, this can be a scary process if you’re used to flying solo. If you feel this way, don't worry—you aren’t alone. Matt Harnick was in the same position in 2021, so he called Ciprani Consulting for help.

Why Mary Beth Loves Ciprani Consulting

 Here’s what one of our recent clients had to say about working with us.

Today we’re bringing you another success story from one of our great clients. Mary Beth joined us recently to talk about her experience working with Ciprani Consulting.

Previously, she had paid a company to post a few job ads for them. They were looking for a full-time executive assistant, but they found no qualified candidates. Then they were referred to us, and they decided it was time to hire us the experts to help them fill the role.

From the beginning, Mary Beth felt that we were on the ball, and she loved the initial sales and introduction calls. She told us what she was looking for and gave us the traits, characteristics, and ideal description for the role. Then we tweaked the description back and forth until we came up with something great.

We put the job description out everywhere online and gave her weekly reports about how many candidates we received and interviewed. She looked...

The Problem with the Unsaid

If you’ve ever been a member of a work community, you’ve probably experienced the things that have gone unsaid. These are the unspoken frustrations, the ideas that are never shared, and the thoughts and feelings that get pushed to the wayside for fear of receiving a negative reaction from management or other coworkers. 

The problem with the unsaid lies in the unfulfilled potential and building resentment. When people feel like their ideas aren’t being heard and their annoyances aren’t important, they become disengaged. We’ve talked about lack of engagement in this blog before, but it’s important to reiterate the importance of having a workforce that’s excited and enthusiastic about their day to day activities. Otherwise, the quality of the product or service is likely to drop.

Now if you’re a leader, you might be wondering how to address the unsaid. What would that look like in a meeting? A free-for-all of negativity and harsh...

Purple Unicorns: Do They Exist?

If you’ve ever been tasked with making a hire, you’ll understand what I’m about to address, which is the elusive, “purple unicorn.” If you’ve never had to make a hire, let me explain what this majestic creature is. 

When hiring, we all have a vision of the perfect human that we aim to bring onto our team. They’re the right blend of every valued characteristic a company could possibly be looking for. Task AND people-oriented, arrive early and stay late, attentive to detail while also a big picture thinker, a visionary and an implementer; this person can do it all. They’re the quintessential employee. We look long and hard under the mountain of applications to find them, but often to no avail, and the reason is simple. They don’t exist.

Think about yourself for a moment. And I mean REALLY be honest here. Are you perfect? When was the last time you made a mistake? Spelled a word wrong? Forgot to email that person back? Probably...
