This past week I had the opportunity to meet again with a highly impressive candidate.
When I had last seen her, she was in a challenging position, one I would imagine many of us would possibly even wish for.
A significant bonus was presented to her, and she was asked to stay the course at her firm with the realistic possibility of an equity partnership.
But she had come to me months prior because she was not completely satisfied.
I originally listened attentively to the priorities she was seeking, and together we devised what became a highly successful approach to matching her priorities and long term goals with a position in a tremendous firm.
The challenge however was that she would have to take a financial step backwards, and there was no guarantee of equity.
What would you have done?
