Summary of Deciding Who Leads
How Executive Recruiters Drive, Direct & Disrupt the Global Search for Leadership Talent
Executive recruiters do more than find top talent; sometimes they steal it. How you can get the most from executive search.
The old-fashioned headhunter you used to call on to bring in a quick hire is completely out of date and this book will help you understand why. Author Joseph Daniel McCool is a highly regarded journalist who has written about and lectured widely on executive search. While offering great information about search consultants, he also shows you the importance of creating your own internal processes for grooming candidates. He advocates establishing “onboarding” programs to create a foundation for new hires. McCool writes clearly and invitingly. He persuasively describes the real value companies can derive from using executive search services productively. getAbstract recommends this book to anyone involved in executive searches.
