How to implement a training academy

What is the most important part of your business? If you answered personnel, we’d have to agree with you. The people employed by your company have a direct impact on every aspect of your business. Let me rephrase that. Listen stupid, people are important! Pay attention! We’ve talked before about how individuals can be let down by organizations, not least in their personal development. Having spent time, money and energy recruiting the right people, it seems completely alien to us to let them loose into the company without providing an array of tools to help them succeed. Building upon an existing skill set or talent seems perfectly acceptable when you reference a musician or sports person. “Of course you need to train. How would you ever expect to improve otherwise?” Every golf or tennis professional worth his or her salt has a coach, so why don’t you have one in your job? Today, Benjamin Western who heads up Capabilityat Chemistry, and is responsible for the huge success that ...

How to hire the next England football manager

Love it or hate it, football is part of the social fabric of British culture. The national team seems to be subjected to more pressure after each passing failed attempt at glory. Needless to say, the teams that do indeed reach dizzyingheights are (perhaps a little unfairly) expected to repeat the process in subsequent years. It’s fair to argue that the England Manager is exposed to an elevated level of pressure and critique. Still very much England’s national sport, football is often criticised and subjected to countless remarks as to what might have been. At Chemistry, we thought we might be able to add some science to the equation. Needless to say, there’s perhaps a little LESS science than what is normally attributed to a Chemistry podcast, but then again what were we expecting from four men discussing football? We hope you enjoy the show. Please don’t forget to rate and review us on iTunes…
