Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité — Where Did They All Go? — And What Are the Implications for You?

By Stephen Bruyant-Langer

What Happened in France?
Luckily, I was in France, when the French team won the World Cup in soccer in July 2018. And what a party! All of a sudden everyone hugged each other. It was a perfect example of inclusion – just as the diversity of the French team. A common state of ecstasy across ethnicity, race, age, gender, and social class. And the victory was very soon translated into “We are the champions of the world!” A huge self-confidence and pride, which, however, very soon degenerated into leftist yellow vests fighting rightist yellow vests. This degeneration will not increase productivity and will certainly not ease the implementation of Macron’s reform plans.

Very often people ask me about the headhunting process, viewed from the inside.
Also, of course, about the tips and the tricks of the trade. This is exactly what this article is about.

For 20 years I was a partner in global executive search firms such as Korn Ferry. Over those many years, I built a systematic approach to evaluating candidates. I will share this approach with you at the end of the article. But first I will share with you some of the myths, I’ve encountered in my professional life.

10 Ways to Success and Happiness

By Stephen Bruyant-Langer

In March 1996, I reinvented myself.
I wrote my own Personal Business Plan, and I went from being a Chief Marketing Officer at L’Oréal and Coca-Cola to becoming an executive search partner at Korn Ferry. This all happened because I was fired back in 1996 – there’s always a catch!

 
Since then, I’ve spent 20 years building my brand as a Headhunter, an Author, an Executive Coach and a Speaker – always with Leadership at the pivotal center and The Personal Business Plan as the ultimate goal.

Is There Still A Line Between Your Personal Identity And Your Professional Identity?

I am convinced we are approaching a more integrated lifestyle where the dividing lines between work and personal time will gradually disappear.

Do you remember when we talked about an on-line universe versus an off-line universe? That dividing line blurred a long time ago. Then we started talking about no-line. And now everything is on-line.

Why Don’t Women Put Their Birth Year on Facebook?

On a daily basis I’m surprised that I can’t see the age of the women I wish Happy Birthday on Facebook. Most men put theirs. There is no need to be embarrassed!

We all go through the same life phases. We all live through the same existential challenges. But when it comes to age it is as if half the population uses the ostrich strategy and buries their head in the sand.
