I'm hitting both coasts of Michigan this week to share a stage with some of the best at the Michigan Recruiter's Conference. Crazy lineup of speakers - how's the saying go? If you're wondering who the weak one is, it's probably you?
Make sure you come up and say hi if you're up north this week.
My topic is as follows:
For those liking formality: How to Increase Your Ability to Influence and Negotiate
For those liking honesty: How to Raise Your Recruiting Game By Thinking Like a Money Hungry VP of Sales
It's all about playing offense. Here's your title slide (email subscribers click through for art):
I have 7 strategies ripped from Sales to help recruiters manage things like hard to handle hiring managers. Along the way, we'll play games like "Dude(ette), Does It Suck?", which is designed to show how badly you might need these strategies.
Tim Sackett does a great job with this conference and I can't think of anywhere I'd rather be than in Michigan in the winter. His speaker swag bag WAS OFF THE CHART though. Coach bag, Pistons gear and a Shinola journal. Simply the best.
Say "What Up, KD" if you're at the conference today.
