Best Recruiters

There are great recruiters around the globe that are unrecognized both in industry and business.  Their names you may have never heard, their titles differ, and their salary is not a measure of their success.  Great recruiters are employed, unemployed, and underemployed.  They are in development, yet to develop and developing others.  However, they all have some greatness in them.  Some have learned their craft through due diligence, others try a haphazard approach, and still others forge…

TLS Continuum Part 5: Darn it!! Why aren't you listening

Dr. Tony Alessandra, the author of the book “The Platinum Rule” , suggests that the purpose of all businesses is to acquire and maintain customers.

If I only had a brain says the scarecrow

The news wires of late have been filled with stories one after another of NFL players involved in some form of domestic violence. Listening to Roger Goddell’s statement last week added to the feeling that something in this picture was missing. Like many organizations the NFL preferred their bottom line to what was morally and ethically right.
