Fill the Missing Link

I believe in the power of *Fill the Missing Link*. After 20+ years of being employed, I decided to become independent and self-employed. It is so much different being self-employed from being employed. For exmple, being employed, the company brand is already there and will be given, regardless you like it or not. But, being self-employed, you must get one. "Fill the Missing Link" describes my belief and basic concept.


No matter what you do, even being employed or self-employed, life is like solving "zigsaw puzzle". You hope to have whole picture completed, but there is always a missing part. You do not want to give up your attempt, so you end up continuing to "Fill the Missing Link". If you "find the right piece of puzzle", you can "Fill the Missing Link". Then you see better picture of completed image, your picture will step ahead for completion. Or it becomes easier to find the next missing piece.

It seems to me that this theory applies not just for daily conduct, but for life or living. We have something missing for our entire life. But, we cannot leave them to be missing and open. We continue to find someone, something which can fill your missing part.

Either in life or in business, we all need someone who can help you "Finding a Piece of Puzzle" and "Filling the Missing Link". I would love to help you finding the piece and "Fill Your Missing Link". This is my goal of life and goal of my company's business. This "Fill the Missing Link" is not just concept. You will find this can be effective methodology for improvement of your daily conduct or life.

Employees don't quit their job, they quit their boss

According to TwoFold CEO Alison McMahon, a leader who doesn't care (or can't pretend to care) about his or her employees isn't much of a leader at all.

Why do people quit their jobs? Surely, there are a ton of factors: money, hours, location, lack of interest, etc. For Alison McMahon, an HR specialist and the CEO of TwoFold, the biggest reason employees jump ship is that they're tired of working for lousy bosses.

By and large, she says, people are willing to put up with certain negatives as long as they enjoy who they're working for. When that's just not the case, there's no reason to stick around:

Nine times out of ten, when an employee says they're leaving for more money, it's simply not true. It's just too uncomfortable to tell the truth.

Whether that's true is certainly debatable, though it's not a stretch to say that an inconsiderate and/or incompetent boss isn't much of a leader. If you run an organization or company, your values and actions need to guide and inspire your team. When you fail to do that, you set the table for poor productivity and turnover.

McMahon offers a few suggestions for those who want to hone their leadership abilities, though it seems that these things are more innate qualities than acquired skills. For example, actually caring about your workers or not depending wholly on HR thinking they can do your job for you.

It's the nature of promotions that, inevitably, a good employee without leadership skills will get thrust into a supervisory position. McMahon says this is a chronic problem that many organizations need to avoid, or at least make the time to properly evaluate and assist with the transition.

But since they often don't, they end up with uninspired workers. And uninspired workers who don't have a reason to stay won't stick around for long.
