The Professionals Trifector - Emotional / Disruptive / Constructive

Passion, knowledge, desire and ability are key components for any good professional. Emotion can be disruptive yet constructive in the eyes, mind and opinion of others who do not have the same level or degree of passion for the profession.


I have used the Urban spelling of 'Trifector' rather than the conventional spelling Trifecta 

[definition - "a type of bet, especially on horse races, in which the bettor must select the first three   finishers inexact order"] - mind you for recruiting I wonder if the later would be more appropriate?


The ramblings below are aimed at HR/Hiring Managers, ATS developers/programmers/analysts, Recruiters, Job Seekers (passive or active), Business decision makers - If you allow the status quo of today to frame the actions of tomorrow you are setting yourself for a fall - I can think of several famous Canadian Technology companies who prove this point.  


Job Seekers are at the forefront of change and are often the Change Agents, through the application of Emotional Intelligence by considering Disruptive Influences and driving Constructive Change, in present and future activities of talent engagement and interaction.  Shouldn't HR/Recruitment Professionals be taking the reins to ensure they lead in the race and win the Triple Crown [Engagement, Interaction and Selection] ?


EMOTIONAL Intelligence (EI) - we have all encountered the professional who uses their educational or experiential knowledge or position within the organization [Group] to secure the outcome they require/desire by applying emotional driven arguments, with the outcome that the recipients of the argument allow the emotional pressure to overcome realistic objections [it used to be called emotional blackmail] - EI is by definition a trait those involved in recruiting [and job seekers to a certain extent] need to resist as the controlling actions associated with it.


DISRUPTIVE Influence (DI) - this is delivered by the person who is going to change the world [in their own mind at least].  They can use EI to disrupt and influence the outcome.  For businesses and those involved in influencing the strategic and operational effectiveness, have viewed Social Media / Social Recruitment as a DI, today's market place and used EI as the tool to resist change, the professionals who are exponents of SoMe/SoRec need to step up and use their EI to deliver effective DI.  Businesses and certain departments who are advising/guiding the business are basically resistance to...


CONSTRUCTIVE Change (CC) - is in every professionals life and businesses operations. The ability to keep up to-date with best practices and future developments in your professional field does not make you a Change Agent, just a professional who is capable of treading water. CC comes about from considering the numerous DI activities, applying EI to each one and then become the driving force behind CC as the Change Agent for the profession/business...


Question to ponder - If Infographics are being used increasingly, when will businesses permit a visual graphics of an individuals career [replace CV or resume] to be considered and processed by their ATS?  Just asking!!!
