    If a candidate is dismissive, curt, or in any way impolite or rude to our Receptionist they’re always going to be a no.

    wow … what incredible wisdom Greg. I’m impressed.

    I very bravely let go ALL of my recruiters over a period of 3 months, and as hard as it was it was best thing I ever did. When they are no longer there, you very quickly see that they actually added no value and were just a salary donation.

    For me, the same principle applies to support staff as they are equally accountable for service delivery and can make or break you.

    Be BOLD, do it and move on.

    @Greg, harsh truth but so valuable.

    Throwing up? or Through up?

    When an owner hears that a recruiter is leaving, does the owner throw up (literally and figuratively) and think how am I going to get along without this person?

    Or does the owner through up their arms with joy and elation -and do a little jig?

    For me, this test is the easiest way to answer my own question of “should they stay or should they go.”

    Heard of the book “The No Asshole Rule” Bob Sutton? Along the same lines as your short blog.

    You have become my Yoda.
    And I did giggle at your truth. Because it is.

    Compliments my three quite nicely: Just say no!

  12. Joanna April 10, 2014 at 9:00 pm #

    Just curious what stays behind this 4 words. But totally agreed.

    The CEO of said in a presentation: “I’d rather have a hole in my team than an asshole in my team” – a slightly more blunt way of stating your great plan. Tx

    An elegant truth … well a truth!
