Spotlight on leadership in changing times
Metin Mitchell - Managing Partner
I can hear the reactions already, “the cheek of that fellow at MM&CO, telling us how to be a great client – doesn’t he get it, that he and people like him are there to do what we say and find us great executive candidates?! It’s not up to him to tell us how to behave!”
“It’s your job to find my husband a job,” cried out the rather petulant voice calling me long distance from Hong Kong. Today I have no recollection of that lady’s husband, just of the shrill admonition that came down the phone line a few years back. I have thought of it often for it sums up so much and so often what ‘candidates’ seem to think that we, as executive search professionals are in business to do.
