 How do you coach and incentivize people with a limited budget to be the very best they can be for themselves and for the company?1 AnswerIt comes down to attitude and using your free resources such as gratitude and a pat on the back for a job well done. Recognizing great performance when it happens in a timely manner and most importantly engaging the employee and making them a part of the solution. People don't like to be talked down to so let them know what is in it for them then coach to that at every opportunity and recognize them again and often - and most importantly MEAN it.

 How many minutes before 5:00 PM would it be if 50 minutes ago, it was four times as many minutes since 3 PM.4 Answers1:30PMthe correct answer is 14 minutes to 5:00pm which is 4:46pm. 4:46pm minus 50 minutes is 3:56pm. Since 3:56pm is 56 minutes from 3:00pm you would take 56 divided by 4 which equals 14.x is current time, y minutes till 5 pm ( 3 pm is 0 and 5 pm is 120 in time scale) x-50=4y; ie x-4y=50 x+y = 120 ie 4x + 4y = 480 5x = 530; x=106 which is 4:46 pmShow More ResponsesDraw a picture that looks like this: 3:00 PM + [4x] + [50 min] + [x] = 5:00 PM Basically, the two hours between 3 and 5 PM are accounted for by [5x + 50] So: 5x + 50 = 120 minutes 5x = 70 x = 14 min

 There are three buckets, one with apples, one with oranges, and one with a mixture of both. They are all labeled wrong. You can pick one piece of fruit from one bucket, what would you pick to determine what is in all three buckets? 4 AnswersThere is no way to determine the answer, just by picking one fruit alone. First, I'd pay attention to the 2 buckets that give off an orange smell. Then, I'd dive my hand into the bucket, taking care to feel what's around my hand. Picking up the fruit doesn't really matter; it's whether the bucket you picked just has oranges or not.I posted the question, sorry, I should have answered it. You pick a piece from the basket labeled "mixed." This is because you know it is labeled wrong (every basket is). So, if you pull out an orange you know that the basket holds only oranges. Now you have one basket figured out, and you know the remaining two are also mislabeled, so you switch their labels and you're done.The question should state that the label always lie. If the label says "Apple Only" it could be "Mixture" or "Orange only" So the one labeled "Mixture" is either "Apple Only" or "Orange Only". So you choose Mixture and what ever fruit you get is the label that is correct. Then switch the other two.Show More ResponsesAll of the answers are close but not entirely correct. Any box is labeled incorrectly. Choose the mixture box. If you pick out an orange, it is necessarily an orange only box. The other two must only be the mixture or apples only. The mislabeld apples only box must be the mixture because it is mislabeled and there are only 2 other choices left. The last box is the mixture. This is the order in which you must think, although the particular fruit you pick up first could be either apple or orange.
