‘Talent in the right place is more crucial than ever in these times of rapid change. Making the right match requires a broader view than just looking mechanically at what someone has done in the past. It also requires making a match with the mission, culture and team of the organisation in which the candidate will work. That requires customisation.
I take pleasure in delving into the context of the company and looking beyond knowledge and skills when selecting candidates. What drives the potential candidate, who is he she and does he/she fit in the relevant context? I think it is important that people have the opportunity to continue to grow and empower themselves at all times in their careers. I also believe in the importance of diversity in a broad sense – if a company is to continue to grow and innovate, diversity in terms of background and ideas within teams is of great importance. I like to take these aspects as well as my analytical mind, creativity and curiosity into account in finding the right match.’
‘Talent is the currency of the new economy’, Liz Wiseman
