FM Broadcast – Fall 2016

We recently got together with a Chief Human Resources Officer who has been a long-time client, and she shared an insightful and funny story that really resonated. Early in her career, her boss and mentor challenged her to stop being a “compliance cop” and start behaving as a businessman (well, businesswoman, in this case). “Think operationally,” he said. “Help me get business done, and use your powers for good!” Those words were exactly what she needed to hear, and that advice has served as the guiding principle throughout her career.

Everyone in the executive search business has that one, especially unfortunate assignment that they will never forget. A few years ago, we were retained to fill a critical role for a fast-growing tech company that had been acquired by a Fortune 500 corporation. Within short order, we had four incredible candidates—all actively working in great companies, but also very excited about our client and the impact that they could have in the role.

FM Broadcast – Winter 2016

Each of us is in a race. Perhaps we are racing against ourselves, trying to do better than we did last year professionally or in our personal lives. In business, we are racing against our competitors to develop the best products, solve complex issues, take market share, and provide a higher return to our investors. We cannot win the race if we always “play it safe” and stay in the slow lane. You have to speed up to pass someone, which is risky, but you can take steps to mitigate that risk and still win.

FM Broadcast – Fall 2015

“I need somebody in here yesterday.” Like all search firms, we want to complete searches as quickly as possible with the best candidates for the job. We typically target 90 days from the day we kick off the search to when the selected executive accepts the offer. The stars have to align pretty well in order for a disciplined search to be significantly shorter than that.

FM Broadcast – Spring 2015

At a recent HR Executive Lunch we hosted in San Francisco, a common point of discussion was finding and keeping the best talent in a highly competitive market. One Chief People Officer said it this way, “One of our biggest issues is competing against the behemoth companies for talent. We can’t compete on compensation anymore, and when the Google’s of the world are buying people, we have to offer something different.”
