Striving for excellence or settling for mediocrity: which are you doing?

Being successful is something most people strive for, whether it’s success in a relationship, success in a job, or success in a sport.

How to Hire the Right Person for the Job: Going Beyond Just Qualifications

Did you know, three in four employers say they’ve hired the wrong person for a position? Can you afford to hire the wrong person for a vacant role?

5 Ways To Set Project Goals and Achieve Them

Do your project goals work? A goal is a target—a destination. And most times the journey to reach your destination will change. It’s not always forward.

The killer feature in Microsoft Teams your business should be using

An Amaxra consultant relayed an interesting customer insight recently when an Office 365 customer requested information on Microsoft Teams. "Maybe this is because I'm Generation X," the customer confessed to our consultant. "But I really don't 'get' Microsoft Teams.

We need to talk about what to do when someone quits

While it is not the most positive topic to discuss, the hard truth of any organization is that employees leave.

How to fire up your business with KPI displays

It's reassuring to visit a company's offices where rather than TVs showing 24-hour cable news (or worse), they are displaying constantly-updated key performance indicator (KPI) metrics.

For entrepreneurs just starting out, finding a new employee can be as simple as a handshake between two roommates. But that hiring model doesn't scale beyond close friends or relatives. Ignoring the fact that handshake agreements don't equate to regulatory compliance, the tactical work of hiring employees takes away from your time as the strategic...
