Description

How do you hire, onboard, and retain a great team?

You start by viewing your company through the EQ lens to discover your organizational obstacles—the elephants standing in the way of your company's success.

Headhunter and executive coach Caroline Stokes delivers a blend of recruiting and emotional intelligence strategies essential to helping you identify and tackle your elephants and acquire and retain key hires—those unicorns—that will help your company stand out, stay resilient, and drive growth.

Each chapter walks you through an organizational obstacle, gives you easy-to-implement advice, unpacks a key emotional intelligence factor, and offers questions for reflection so you can unlock your team's ability to hire the best candidates for the job. You'll also learn how to:

  • Take a human-centric approach to your recruiting process
  • Create an onboarding process that fits your company culture
  • Deliver honest feedback with emotional intelligence and empathy
  • Sharpen your negotiating skills so you can focus on what matters most to key hires
  • Break your team's addiction to busy and reclaim your creativity
  • Find the root cause of your fake unicorns

Plus, get an inside look at how industry leaders are setting the pace for diversity, inclusion, and support to help you navigate today's workplace landscape.
