Definition: A person who organizes and manages any enterprise, especially a business, usually with considerable initiative and risk.
We launched our Executive Search Firm in October of 1983. We were young entrepreneurs ready to take on the responsibilities and challenges of running a business of service.
We started off with the mindset that we would succeed.
During the previous three years (1980-1983), Craig was working for the world’s largest recruiting firm. During that period, we experienced that placing the client/candidate’s needs as the number one priority was the key to a successful outcome. After their needs were met, our needs would be met.
That was our ‘FOUNDATION OF OPERATION. ‘
From the inception of the founding of our business, we incorporated the “CAN-DO ATTITUDE.” We learned and implemented concepts from mentors such as Zig Ziglar, Norman Vincent Peale, Denis Waitley, Brian Tracy, Dale Carnegie, and many others. We were determined to “go the extra mile” in order to stand out among our competitors.
In terms of action, that meant meeting with clients at midnight if they were flying in and had a short window of time to meet and discuss their needs.
Through the decades and today, it means regularly working late nights to do the necessary research for our clients to bring results. It means working with a sense of urgency that is required to GET THE JOB DONE. In other words, we navigate the maze–overcoming any obstacles blocking the way to a successful outcome.
Many people do not understand that hiring a “CAN-DO PERSON” is like something you have rarely previously experienced (“CAN-DO PEOPLE” are in short supply). The “CAN-DO PERSON” is an unparalleled individual and someone who can bring extraordinary results. The “CAN-DO PERSON” is critical to achieving outstanding rewards.
