Ask For Listener Reviews
One of the techniques that I have seen work very well with growing your podcast is asking your listeners for reviews. The podcasting market is saturated with a lot of different choices. In order to stand out and differentiate your podcast from the market noise, ask your viewers to leave reviews, no matter how small your audience. Those reviews will attract more listeners quickly. - Kamyar Shah, World Consulting Group

Use The Decision Tree Method
A sure way to anticipate and be prepared for potential issues is to understand and utilize the"decision tree" methodology. Think of it as playing out different outcomes based on different decisions. If you apply it consistently to all major decisions, you will very likely be able to be proactive when potential issues arise. - Kamyar Shah, World Consulting Group

“As the saying goes, hire for character and train for skills. Though it sounds cliché, it is even more fitting today than it was a few years back,” said Kamyar Shah, a business and management consultant at World Consulting Group, a management consulting firm. “There are several issues in hiring and recruiting in the current market; however, the two issues with the biggest impact are unqualified recruiters and unrealistic expectations.”
Shah went on to say, “The first one—unqualified HR professionals that are not nearly familiar with the job specifications—has a huge impact on the outcome. For example, recruiters hiring for advanced marketing positions that never have worked a day in marketing or recruiters seeking highly skilled data scientists without having the ability to discern the applicant’s resume. The second factor is the unrealistic expectations—I see it almost weekly, where a recruiter is out and about contacting only the applicants that are a near perfect match to the job description.”

You Have to Start Somewhere
Kamyar Shah feels best practices actually stifle creativity and success:
The concept of best practices is rather a misguided notion of uniformity and groupthink that at best stifle effectiveness and efficiency and at worst create a tremendous burden on organizational success.
I have made a habit to use best practices ONLY as a starting point.
For instance; in marketing strategy planning I help my clients to start with a comprehensive overview of all platforms and channels, yet quickly help them discard those that are not suited for their product or services.
On the other hand, some basic digital marketing best practices, such as standard on-page optimizations, are simply a must.
In HR projects, I encourage my clients to explore non-traditional methodology in the recruiting and selection process instead of the best practices that are currently standards for many organizations.
The bottom line is that the concept of best practices is generally either misunderstood or wrongly implemented.It was never meant to be a uniform SOP for every organization; only a set of basics to serve as a starting point.
Success comes from the adaption of those best practices to the individual business based on its leadership style and product/service selections.

Ideas are a dime a dozen, and most ideas never even get off the ground for two reasons: follow up and execution. That is when the "the doer" type proves his/her value. "The doer" with his/her relentless follow-up and implementation will be the driving force to plan, follow up, and implement. This type of team member can have an immense impact on innovation and profitability of a given organization. - Kamyar Shah, World Consulting Group
