Note: This post was inspired by two posts recently published by Dave Ashton of SnapCar. It, like Dave’s “Why I hired you” and “Why I fired you”, is a fictitious note to a fictitious employee. I love Dave’s notes. They should be required reading for anyone looking for a job, or who is in a job and facing difficulties. Caveat: My firm provides executive search, career transition services and executive coaching. Dise & Company does not have an existing business relationship with Dave or his firm.
Wedged between a recession and a recovery, most organizations have reduced their workforces to save money and remain viable. Many corporate bosses are evaluating talent to identify and retain top performers, and recruit the “A” players who will position them to be competitive in the years ahead.
