2nd Annual Strategic Day Away

Last year, RSG partnered with our friends at Pascoe Workforce Solutions to host a Strategic Day Away, an all-day training conference complete with knowledgeable guest speakers, team-building exercises, and in-depth round-table discussions. It was such a successful day that we decided to make it an annual event, and so a few weeks back, we hosted our 2nd Annual Strategic Day Away.

It was a wonderful day of learning with new and old faces. One of our guest speakers was the dynamic Gail Audibert of Audibert Associates who took her morning off to offer her career expertise to us. We’d like to extend our warmest gratitude to her for sharing her time with us!

After a long but great day of learning, we ended with some friendly bowling and a delicious dinner. Thank you to all for coming! We are looking forward to next year!

                  

         

Celebrating Five Years

What has been the most rewarding part of running Rigsby Search Group for the past five years?

Recruiting is such a rewarding career in general; we’re literally changing a person’s life. As far as running a business, the most rewarding part has been building it all from scratch and watching it become what it is today. Before I started RSG, I was an environmental recruiter for 19 years, and when I left my old company behind, I had to slowly build RSG from the ground up. Now, five years later, we’ve built a successful team, created this truly wonderful company, and we continue to help people day in and day out. Seeing it all come to fruition is the most rewarding part.

What has been the biggest obstacle that RSG has had to overcome?

Finding talented individuals to help us grow. I want our company to continue to expand and flourish, and I think finding talented individuals to help us grow has been the toughest part of running a company. I recently hired a business coach to help show me how to truly hit my full potential as a leader for my team.

What has been the best lesson that you’ve learned since starting RSG?

To learn from your mistakes. There’s always a lesson to be found. Everyone will make mistakes, but it’s important to take responsibility for them and move on.

What does your vision for the future of RSG look like?

I see us growing tremendously so that we can help more people. RSG will have a national team one day, I assure you. I know the only way to achieve this goal is to keep seeking out people that are smarter than me, bringing them on, and building a strong team. I think this is what leadership is all about. I want our brand to be synonymous with excellence. A few other plans I have for the future include starting a civil engineering group and a construction remediation group. Overall, I just want to continue to help people grow. I’m excited for what the future holds for RSG. I know it will be outstanding.

New Year’s Resolutions for the Go-Getter

new-years-resolutions-2016

We’ve all been there.

It’s New Year’s Eve, and the question of the evening is being passed around the dinner table. What is your New Year’s resolution? It’s almost your turn, but what are you going to say? Travel more, workout daily, save money, be happy… While we would all love to accomplish each and every one of those and then some, maybe you are looking to do something truly off the charts this year. Something that will really alter the direction of your everyday life.

Here are six resolutions for 2016 that may make this year the most productive and satisfying yet.

  1. Spread your skills. Continue learning, even outside of your comfort zone. If you’re skilled in the technical side, learn a bit about the business side. If you have an interest in something, take a class. Try it out. Spread your skills. As one of the smartest men to ever live once said, once you stop learning, you start dying. Thanks for the push, Albert Einstein.
  2. Get involved. You probably heard this statement many times throughout your academic years, and, well, the same holds true now. Through involvement in various groups and organizations, your network circle expounds. Plus, it’s nice to have a little structure in your probably very busy life, like weekly brunches or monthly book clubs.
  3. Read more. Whether it’s news articles every morning over coffee or a novel at night before bed, reading goes hand-in-hand with learning. Also, the more you read, the better of a writer you become, and writing, no matter what industry you’re in, is a vital skill for every go-getter.
  4. Learn from your network. It’s almost common knowledge nowadays that networking is a vital part of your professional life. It’s also a skill, which means you can always improve. This year, practice networking. Set some time aside on a weekly basis to learn the tools at your fingertips. Not only will you learn new features of networking itself, but you may also learn a thing or two from the people in your network.
  5. Position yourself to move up in your career. This may be your loftiest goal and it may take longer than one year, but always be on the lookout for that next career opportunity. Whatever the “next” step is for you, plan for it accordingly. Set that foundation so that you are prepared for when it comes along… and it will.
  6. Believe in yourself. Do you wake up in the morning doubting yourself? Do you allow others to form opinions about you? 2016 is the year to break this habit. Don’t tell yourself “no” or “I can’t do this.” You can. It’s time to be proud of your talents and show confidence in your abilities. Not only can this one simple change alter your everyday mindset, it can affect nearly every aspect of your life for the better.

Happy 2016 to you all and best of wishes in the New Year! Go get ’em.
