There are some days when I help my clients with interviewing where we speak to people all day only to find no one qualified to move to the next interview. This can be discouraging but when we understand the importance of finding the right person for the job, we also understand that having no one to move on is inherit to the process. After a particularly difficult interview day where this exact scenario occurred, my client turned to me and said “I just want to thank you for your hard work and for hanging in there with me. I am really grateful for having you here.” First, it is wonderful to work with people that understand we do not always find the right person immediately. I am even more grateful that when this happens, they still see the value of the A-list Interviews process. As I drove home from the session, I had such a warm glow in my heart and it got me thinking…
Do I say “thank you” often enough, even in the face of adversity? I certainly hope so. If you have not heard “thank you” from me recently, I want to express my gratitude now. Some of you on this distribution list are amazing clients; some of you are incredible network partners or even people I have only met once at an event; some of you are people I perhaps have never met. Regardless, I sincerely appreciate your readership, partnership, trust and support over the years for myself and A-list Each and every one of you have contributed to my success in some way.
During the month of November, I find it timely to remind you all of my gratitude: gratitude for my clients, my vendors, my employee, my family and my friends. Quite simply, thank you.
And just as my client reminded me earlier this month that a simple thank you speaks volumes, I pass it along to you and yours, and know that I am eternally grateful for you all.
Muchas gracias! Merci! Thank you!
