There is a lot of talk from contingent recruiters about headhuting. Some claim to their clients that their skills in this area separate them from other specialist recruiters. Some of these recruitment consultants are right. The majority, however, don’t really know what headhunting is. They think they do but they don’t.
Time is the one thing that I hear people want more of than anything else. “If only I had more time, I would be able to see more of my family.” “If I had more time I would be able to get my tax return filled in before the deadline.” “If I had more time I would be able to hit my KPIs.” “If I only had more time blah blah blah.”
My world is often full of analogy. It can help create better understanding in training and can also help generate a different way of highlighting a particular point. In fact, analogy and metaphor are two of the most powerful things I use during training.
