Recruiting Rene: Or, thinking and executing success, as only a recruiter can! – Part 43 of a Continuing Series

Hi Gang, during my week off last week I enjoyed a reacquaintance with an old influence from college, Gregory Bateson. One of his driving themes seemed to be so pertinent to our work with Rene’s Rules. Bateson spends a great deal of time going off about presuppositions. We’ll break that down in a moment. Here, […]

Recruiting Rene: Or, thinking and executing success, as only a recruiter can! – Part 42 of a Continuing Series

I’m about to interrupt our focus on the importance of stories, because I have two stories I simply HAVE to share today. One is about Rene and the other is about me. Before I interrupt, allow me to remind you that as a recruiter, introducing yourself, your mission is to get four kinds of stories, […]

Recruiting Rene: Or, thinking and executing success, as only a recruiter can! – Part 41 of a Continuing Series

Yes, to remind you again, we’re here, Rule 2, phrase 1: 1. to divide up each of the difficulties which I examined And we’re working on stories. Stories. Have you embraced them yet? Oh yes, and we’re working on the art of self-introduction! Aha, two different, yet very powerfully connected points: stories and self-introduction. Rene […]

Recruiting Rene: Or, thinking and executing success, as only a recruiter can! – Part 40 of a Continuing Series

It really is good to keep on top of where we are, so, once again Rule 2’s divisions: “The second was 1. to divide up each of the difficulties which I examined 2. into as many parts as possible, 3. and as seemed requisite 4. in order that it might be resolved 5. in the […]

Recruiting Rene: Or, thinking and executing success, as only a recruiter can! – Part 39 of a Continuing Series

We left off last week considering phrase 1 of Rule 2: 1. to divide up each of the difficulties which I examined Our instant application is to the two difficulties of self-introduction to Candidates and Clients. And I promised to attempt to persuade you to recruit in the mornings. Do you realize how revolutionary this […]

Recruiting Rene: Or, thinking and executing success, as only a recruiter can! – Part 38 of a Continuing Series

For our bearings, here we go: The five phrases I’ve pulled out of Rule 2, where Rene begins: “The second was 1. to divide up each of the difficulties which I examined 2. into as many parts as possible, 3. and as seemed requisite 4. in order that it might be resolved 5. in the […]

Recruiting Rene: Or, thinking and executing success, as only a recruiter can! – Part 37 of a Continuing Series

We’ll work our way up to Rule 2 today. First, let’s linger at the big picture for a moment. No one has, so far, expressed their doubts. I don’t know if that’s good or bad, but I do recognize that the course here can be a bit intimidating. That recognized, let’s see if we can’t […]

Recruiting Rene: Or, thinking and executing success, as only a recruiter can! – Part 36 of a Continuing Series

Burden of Persuasion 4. Seat of Judgment 5. Moore’s Big Fish in a Small Pond Command 6. Marshal’s Go-To Person, the […]

Recruiting Rene: Or, thinking and executing success, as only a recruiter can! – Part 35 of a Continuing Series

We left off yesterday, still working part 4 below, along with Sitting Duck Theory: 1. The first of these was to accept nothing as true 2. which I did not clearly recognize to be so: 3. that is to say, carefully to avoid precipitation and prejudice in judgments, 4. and to accept in them nothing […]

Recruiting Rene: Or, thinking and executing success, as only a recruiter can! – Part 34 of a Continuing Series

Why did I get rolling on Sitting Duck Theory yesterday? It was because of Rule 1, Phrase 4. It’s good to go over those phrases again for our bearings right now: 1. The first of these was to accept nothing as true 2. which I did not clearly recognize to be so: 3. that is […]
