Nancy Koehn, historian and Chair of Business Administration at the Harvard Business School, told World Business Forum attendees that, "Historians develop an eye for the large picture, the events that determine a moment and where we are right now." Currently, she said, we are in a time of great turbulence: financial, social, economic, demographic, and even meteorologically. She called it a "punctuated equilibrium" and stated that the "search for steady, a state, a system to which we will return is over." We are now in a new world in which the unexpected is the new normal, and we had all better get used to it.

The topic in the executive committee meeting turned to Europe. The technology company, Alentix*, was doing well and growing annually at the rate of about 15 percent. But its European division was struggling. It had been five years since the region turned a profit.

Yet no one had addressed that issue. Jean, the head of the Europe office, had been with the company longer than anyone else around the table — he had strong ties with the board — and the topic seemed untouchable.

Where Executive Jobs are Expected to Be

Even though the overall job growth is up and down, executive recruiters reported in our most recent surveys that things are looking up at the executive level.

As part of our mission is to keep you informed about the executive employment market, I've broken down some of the results of the survey here for you.


If you want to destroy worker initiative, blast a hole in productivity, and scribble the bottom line with red ink, there's no better way to do it than by micromanaging your employees. Keeping workers on tight leashes and constantly interrupting them ruins their ability to find thoughtful, profitable ways to do their jobs, and it wastes your valuable time as well.

True organizational productivity requires engaged, informed personnel willing and eager to work toward the organization's mission and vision. And it all starts with a simple concept that's amazingly hard for some people to implement: trust.


As part of ExecuNet membership, I conduct a bi-weekly teleconference called Six-Figure Hotline where members call in to ask the questions keeping them up at night, and to gain market and trend insight from the career experts who join me in talking about issues that are important to executives today.

In one such teleconference, I was joined by Patricia Romboletti, an executive search and branding expert, and a member asked us, "During the call, you've suggested that companies are not going to respond to postings because most of it is done by networking. So why do companies create position postings, and who is the intended target?"
