Key Points From This Episode:
“I fell in love with the executive recruiting and at Korn Ferry, and I met my future husband, so I found two loves out of the deal.” — @searchblair [0:06:12]
“I'm constantly learning. I learn something new every day, whether it's something about the business, or something about talent, or something about another company, or something about an industry. Keeping that sense of curiosity is something that has been very important to me.” — @searchblair [0:10:30]
“Because I'm somebody who likes to learn and, because I'm somebody who continues to have a curiosity about what's happening in our industry, I try to find ways to bring that to the teams as well. I hope that people get some takeaways from it that they may not otherwise get in their day-to-day experiences.” — @searchblair [0:14:22]
