the local college in my community and enrolled. I completed my undergraduate degree in three years and learned so much I felt compelled to continue on through graduate school. Looking back, I see the obstacles that I faced head on, not knowing how I did it, just that I did it! Now I own a small business in which I am focusing on helping others both businesses and individuals alike! You have certainly inspired me to kick it up a notch to do greater and better things!
being the most underserved market in his work, "Re-Imagine". In the video linked here, he essentially debunks business school, which I can personally speak to.
Tell me why women make ~83% of ALL consumer purchases, yet the company's products they're buying have Executive Boards that are typically made up entirely men. Are you serious? How could this be? Oh, and what about 'Household Investment Decisions' being at 67% Whoa, Double Whoa, Triple Whoa. Think about that for a moment - who REALLY controls the purse strings in 2 of 3 households?
Some excerpts from his book, Re-Imagine, that may be strong fodder for your discussion include:
"• Women practice improvisation with much greater ease than men.
• Women are more self-determined and more trust-sensitive than men.
• Women appreciate and depend upon their intuition more than men do.
• Women, unlike men, focus naturally on empowerment (rather than on hierarchical "power").
• Women understand and develop relationships with greater facility than men.
Rant: We are not prepared ...
We acknowledge that a new, fluid world is emerging. But we retain our male-inspired, male-dominated hierarchies. We "reengineer." But our way of thinking, indeed our very vocabulary ("engineering"), continues to be male-inspired. We recognize women's "rights." But we ignore women's strengths. We value "toughness." But we fail to see that women's brand of toughness is far more "steely" than men's. We preach the value of a new kind of enterprise. But we neglect those who are perhaps most fit to lead it. Namely: Women."
Yes, I'm happy to be a man, but I'm a huge fan of Women for more ways than I can count. Maybe it's from being raised by a single-mother and growing up with 2 sisters? Maybe. Maybe it's just because I love Women. Ladies, I'm one of your biggest fans :) . . . and I'm not afraid to say it.…

g in the digital space. My company www.onrec.com.au is four-years-old and our work comes mainly from Australasia. I am also author of a blog on online recruitment news in Australia. www.geoffjennings.com
My wife's Dutch heritage inspired a visit to Amsterdam and we have decided we'd like to spend a longer period in your country (the appeal of this is made stronger by the strength of the Euro compared with the Australian dollar). Have you any advice for a company in the early stages of considering such an extension?
ome hiring managers. They remember me and come to me for their hiring needs because they know I am not just another recruiter and they were never a number. With that in mind, I've kept my same cell number, even if I have changed positions and employers so my network can continue to find me. We are each other's lifeline. We (candidates, clients and recruiters) need each other as the lifecycle doesn't work with one of these elements missing.
You have inspired me to look into how I can provide additional resources like you have done, providing job seeker resources on line. Great idea.…
was neck and neck. So how important was his likeability. And some people claim that he only won by buying votes in West Virginia.
Bill Clinton, I hear he's very likeable but I would say that a lot - and I mean a lot of people hated him too. And why didn't he get kicked out of office? I'm not sure it was because he was likeable.
Is Obama likeable? Not in the chummy sense. He inspired people in his first campaign and maybe that ability is included in what you mean by likeable.
t, but at least it's out in the open and exposes these ideas to a broader subset than what really amounts to a cool kids club.

Animal, this is a better forum to discuss these matters than Recruiters Online with 1700 members whom are well respected in the industry who get a ping every time a remark gets made. Jeremy Roberts wrote a killer post on this exact topic today.
