Change masters are the leaders who motivate and drive the successful direction of their companies. They know that success starts and is sustained by excellence in staffing. Enlightened leaders create workplaces where people are the focus of the corporate culture and the customer is the focus of the people.

I was watching this stupid TV show called "Selling New York" on HGTV. It is a plotless program capturing realtor endeavors selling townhomes, condos, and co-ops in the Big Apple.
In this particular episode there was a guy who wanted the world. As a successful Wall Street type he could afford whatever he wanted, but he always wanted it on HIS terms and HIS price. Thinking he was so smart he would throw out ridiculously low offers, pontificate every minor detail and wait and watch until his wife's dream house was purchased - by someone else. After months of looking and pontificating he finds THE PERFECT Upper East Side townhouse, and they love it! So what does he do? He throws out a ridiculously low offer... gets outbid... and disappoints his wife yet one more time.
Time after time after time he found exactly what he was seeking, but because it wasn't on HIS terms, he couldn't pull the trigger.
I looked at my wife started laughing. When it comes to hiring, there are companies that do the same thing.
Don't get me wrong, hiring is more of an art than a science and a bad hire is always expensive. But, what happens when companies find the right person - The "A+ Player?" Once identified, the hiring process can make all of the difference. And time after time after time companies and hiring managers are losing out on some of the BEST talent because they simply do not know how to get it onboard. With that, some simple observations:
Yes, the unemployment rate in the country is 9 percent. The unemployment rate for A+ talent - the ones companies want - is ZERO.
The war for the A+ Player is vicious. What are you doing to attract it?
