« The Myth About Change | Main | Missed Marketing Opportunities »


@Valeria I couldn't agree with you more, honestly. Perhaps I'm impatient - truly the right fit takes time and circumstance to come together. But working with great people for me has always become apparent in the first few minutes of a conversation. I love it when that happens!

@Amber - It also requires the ability to cut through the noise and get to what you are really looking for and want - on both sides. Often people settle for a paycheck, for a perceived advancement, etc.

When I find the right candidate, I know instantly. It happens in the first few minutes of a conversation. There is a connection that can be built upon. One can tell if it's just talk or it is based on experience and talent.

Ditto for me. My team - and the network overall - is my mentor and I am a mentor to them. I give back in resources, inspiration, juicy projects, and by listening.

@Marshall - there will be a connection where there is a thread. You'll see.

That was a pretty good post on the Future of Work. Lately you've written a couple of posts on Job sites, work, the future of work ....how about one more post that ties them all together?

Just a thought,
