Hard Work

As Thomas Jefferson said, “I’m a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it”. Hard work is the single greatest competitive advantage. Ideas don’t happen because they are great. The genius is in the execution, aka the “99% perspiration”. Perspiration implies sweat, self-discipline, and occasional exhaustion. I think this is what Malcolm Gladwell teaches us in his book Outliers when he proposes that a true mastery of anything requires 10,000 hours of doing it. There are no shortcuts to lasting success.

Let’s...

In my first few blogs, I provided my perspective on COURAGE as the concept relates to Kuhn Global Talent’s values. Courage can also be considered the foundation for our other values of CARING, HONESTY, INTEGRITY, and HARD WORK.   Feeling and exhibiting concern and empathy for others, our clients and our candidates, is what CARING means to us.   In this blog I will give some thoughts on the values of Honesty and Integrity. We see one or both of these values included in the core values listed by over 90% of organizations who say they have...

Blog from Jim Kuhn, founder of Kuhn Global Talent, LLC, on the values that guide KGT’s relationships and operations – An interesting thing has happened – our recent conversations seem to show that the symbolism of the lion is more cogent to people in Western rather than Eastern cultures. Clients and candidates in the US, Latin America and the EU almost immediately associate the lion with COURAGE. Because about a third of our searches are in China and India, we are aware that the lion symbolizes different traits and values specific to...

Blog from Jim Kuhn, founder of Kuhn Global Talent, LLC, on the values that guide KGT’s relationships and operations – Wow – I am grateful for the comments I’ve received after launching KGT’s new logo that proudly displays the image of a lion in it. Before discussing the symbolism behind the lion (courage, caring, and strength), I’d like to mention the conversations I’ve been having about the 24/7 nature of our recruiting business: You may be thinking- “What’s that have to do with lions?” It’s interesting that the lion is...
