Success = Going Out of Your Way to Bring the Right Leaders On Board
Every ‘Student’ of the American Revolutionary War will remember reading about Baron Friedrich Wilhelm von Steuben. Von Steuben was the military leader recruited by General George Washington to serve as the drillmaster of the Continental Army. Incredibly, von Steuben turned a rag-tag collection of farmers and stable boys into the officer corps which led the Americans to victory.
“OK,” you’re thinking. “But what does that have to do with executive recruiting?”
Simple. General Washington’s forces faced a well-trained army of British conscripts and Hessian mercenaries. If Washington was to level the playing field, he’d need to recruit a skilled outsider who knew the enemy and what it would take to defeat them—namely, Baron Von Steuben.
Washington knew he couldn’t achieve victory with second-rate people—and neither can you. Today, it’s companies, not countries, which are battlefield rivals. If you’re going to win, only the Best can lead the charge. Locating and ‘enlisting’ the best executive talent is what executive recruiting is all about.
The following case studies, some with case interviews and some without, demonstrate that achieving your vision requires a carefully crafted plan, be expertly executed to ensure your ‘victory’. That’s what we do at Perry-Martel.
