Hiring the best people

“You can’t send a duck to eagle school”

You have to admit,  when you saw the headline of Colin Thompson’s short article. Ducks? Eagles? What’s this to do with business? But you will be simply stunned by the truth behind this kind of funny sentence. What about you? Do you think you can train a duck to become an eagle?

A few years ago I had lunch with a top executive from a company known for their legendary retail service. My wife and I are both huge fans, and over lunch I shared with him some of the great service stories his people had provided the Thompson family.
I said, “With the service your people give…you must have a training manual 2 inches thick.”
He looked up and said, “Colin, we do not have a training manual. What we do is find the best people we can find and we empower them to do whatever it takes to satisfy the customer.”
Then he said something I’ll never forget. He said, “We learned a long time ago that you cannot send a duck to eagle school.” Read the complete article on hiring the best peolple written by top executive Colin Thompson Continue reading

A Tip on the Long Tail of Top Management

by Avidgor Luttinger

Top Executive File: War for Talent

War for Talent by Josef David

According to a landmark Mc Kinsey study in 1997, 6.000 managers and top executives stated that the most important corporate resource over the next twenty years will be talent. Smart, sophisticated business people who are technologically literate, globally astute and operational agile. In 2000 they updated the study and found, despite the economic slowdown and the end of the boom, the war for talent was intensifying dramatically. McKinsey found that attracting and retaining talent was not just a valid desire – it was a business imperative... Continue reading

The First Week

Never is the saying more true to the letter “There is no second chance for a first impression” than when you first enter your new company as an interim general manager. You prepared yourself well, you have your script and you have the necessary authorisation by the board. So you feel well prepared for the task. At this point, let me say a word about the dress code and I do not mean white tennis socks. You will have to fit in which means that if your client is a manufacturing SME in a more rural area of the country it is a bad idea to show up in Oxford shirt and pin-stripe suit. Do not overdress nor underdress. Continue reading
