I don’t think I had fixed plans, but I knew I wanted a new...

Initially, I didn’t really have any- I wanted to take a year out...

To most seasoned salespeople, two feelings will be familiar. The first, of being on a roll- when things seem, with miraculous inevitability, to just keep falling into place: when your pitch would convince all the Dragons; decision-maker after decision-maker appears at the end of the phone; a string of successes put your target- and all the rewards that come from hitting it- within easy reach. And then there’s its opposite- a run of bad luck leaves you frustrated and depressed,...

In the twenty years since McKinsey declared a War for Talent, the doctrine that staff are a company’s most valuable resource has gone almost undisputed. Its premises- the Pareto statistic that 20 percent of staff in a business are responsible for 80 percent of its revenue; that ideas and ingenuity are ever-more-important in our knowledge economy; that moving job is easier now than ever before - are widely accepted. Taken together, they’ve led to general agreement among CEOs and HR...
