Founder/CEO at IRC USA - Exceptional People, International & IRC Global Technology Practice Leader
“Stacy Holland and the Exceptional People team are the best I've seen in the industry. Rather than the typical headhunter "let me unload my inventory on you" model, Exceptional People takes the time to truly understand your business and in a collaborative way clearly define the type of candidate that will best succeed in the role you are looking to fill.
I'm certain the vetting process is highly effective because every candidate introduced to us was worthwhile speaking with. From start-to-finish the Exceptional People team is professional and responsive. I will use their results oriented services again.”
Professor Pookong Kee, currently Director of the University of Melbourne's Asia Institute has recently been appointed as the next BHP Chair of Australian Studies at Peking University. Professor Kee brings a unique perspective with his extensive experience at senior levels both in Australia and within Asia. We recently caught up with Professor Kee and discussed emerging issues in higher education in the region.
Changing jobs can be a challenging process. From interview anxiety to long waiting periods without a response, changing jobs can begin to take a toll on you. Fortunately, developing and understanding Emotional Intelligence (EI) can make this process easier. EI has been increasingly discussed because of its importance in effective leadership, however, emotional intelligence applies to all aspects of life including changing jobs.
In business as in life, we tend to expect our leaders to have an inherent ability to show the way, and to act as role models for the behaviour they expect to see from others.
