Author Q&A

A Letter from the Author
Twenty years as a headhunter have proved to me how important and how powerful talent is in creating great companies. In fact, I have learned that there is no component more important than exceptional people and this realization serves as the ultimate inspiration for this book.
Over the course of my career, I have had the good fortune to be exposed to, interact with and learn from the country’s top leadership. From them I have gleaned many of the perspectives that I harness today. I have tried to take this knowledge and transfer it into this book with the intention of helping readers build their careers and their businesses.
I hope that you enjoy reading this book as much as I enjoyed the journey of collecting, documenting and then editing through my personal experiences and reflections. At a bare minimum, I hope that you glean one new piece of information that positively affects your personal and/or your company’s success.
–Jeffrey Christian
