Was "Hendel und Grill" mit Headhunting zu tun haben

Wenn Sie genauso lange wie ich als Headhunter tätig sind(bald 20 Jahre), kennen Sie sicherlich folgende Szenarien und wenn Sie kürzer im Business sind, dann kann Ihnen dieser Artikel helfen, die selben Fehler nicht nochmals zu machen bzw. einfach mal nur zu verstehen, wie Unternehmertum und Personalberatung funktionieren. Mein nachfolgendes Hendel Beispiel, läßt sich auf viele Branchen anwenden, man wurschtelt sich halt so irgendwie durch, gell?! ;-) Der Schwanz jagd die Katze und umgekehrt in unserer Recruiting / Headhunting Branche, das war schon 1999 so und hat sich seitdem nicht geändert, trotz aller, innovativer Tools, Datenbanken, Erfahrungen und AI, die uns eigentlich nur dabei helfen, weiter am Markt zu bestehen. Hat man diese Dinge nicht und eine Administration, die über 10% Zeitaufwand liegt, so befindet man sich auf direktem Weg in den "Tornado des Todes". Das Handwerk ist das Gleiche geblieben, die Apps, Tools und AI haben nur den Premium Computer und Excel ersetzt,…

BREADHUNTER: The Simplification of the Headhunter Craft

After a sabbatical with inspiring talks, meetings, travels and time to re-think old habits in headhunting and executive-search the NEW BREADHUNTERwas born again in February 2018.
On our new website you find just the essentials you need to know as a client and candidate too. No novels about how good and experienced we are(therefore you can read my BOOKS and Blogs! ;-)), but also a fresh design and minimalism and on top our transparent pricing packages, something, which is very unusual in Germany, Austria and Switzerland in the Executive Search and Headhunter industry, but normal since 6 years in the US, the Netherlands and some other global destinations. So I decided to become the first headhunter in the DACH region in 2018 (and maybe also Europe), who is transparent also in pricing. Yes, the world and everything gets more and more transparent during these times and this is why my Partners and I see us also as headhunting-craftsmen, working with the best technology, partners in 80 cities …

Neueröffnung in Wien: Die Zukunft des Headhunting ist transparent - auch beim Preis

In 2 Tagen eröffnet der BREADHUNTER in Wien wieder seine Tore und diesmal nicht nur mit einer effizienten, reduzierten Webseite ohne Bla-Bla, sondern auch als erster Headhunter im DACH-Raum mit transparenten Preisen. Ja, Sie haben richtig gehört, das letzte Tabu der Branche wird nun erstmals im DACH-Raum gebrochen, was in den Niederlanden und den USA schon seit mindestens 2012 üblich ist, sich jedoch in unseren Breitengraden bisher keiner getraut hat, da man lieber heimlich, still und leise mit Prozenten vom jeweiligen Jahresgehalt rechnete oder mit Flat-Fees, die jedoch höchstens in den AGBs kommuniziert wurden. Die Zeit wird schneller, das Headhunting ebenso, jedoch sollte das ohne Qualitätseinbußen einhergehen, jedenfalls nicht beim BREADHUNTER, denn die auf der Webseite veröffentlichten Preise entsprechen denen eines Handwerkbetriebes. Beim Konditor, Uhrmacher, Metzger, Schuster, Schneider oder Winzer ist es immer schon Tradition, seine Preise transparent für den Kunden darzustellen …

The new business mantra of staying positive to purge critical thinkers

Maybe I belong now to the old-school-society of the 40 to 80 years old business people with my opinion, but I just have to write some words about this new business behavior I see since about 4 years being also famous in Germany and Austria more and more.
To stay positive and be an optimist is not a bad thing, but to use this mantra to purge all critics and thinkers of their opinion is a business style which became very famous the last years to kill all good arguments, which are not conform with an unready mainstream idea. It's the best mantra to avoid a discussion, which you would loose in the end and ensure the power just by looking forward and never back, because you could learn from mistakes or you would be beaten by the facts & figures, which would lead to a total different decision making. So there is a new business movement, sometimes also related to naive startups, but also to stronger business leaders, which pray this mantra anytime, anywhere: Stay positive, don't be …

From BREADHUNTER III.: History & Future of Headhunting

Chapter 3. History and Future of Headhunting (from BREADHUNTER III. - The English Blog Articles, p. 187 - 195) Predicting the Future of something feels like the oracle of Delphi and I don’t believe in this stuff, but I think there are experiences and learnings from the last years, that will help us to forecast a trend also in headhunting and executive search. Also, here I will remind you to the 2 videos of dissolve.com about the generic marketing ad and the millennials. We do have 3 business worlds and trend now behind us, if you just look on the last 30 years. The 1st world was this kind of 80ties/90ties old-boys network business with big cars, suits and expensive watches at your wrist. Especially in headhunting and executive search, you could earn a lot of money during the late 80ties and 90ties and a bit during the beginning millennial times. I wrote about this in my 1st BREADHUNTER I. book from my experiences in Munich during 1999. Companies took every candidate with any university degre…

This is a Manifesto of Generic Advertising from the last 5 years, the generic Breadhunter Ad Campaign as Coffee-Table-Art-Book from November 2017. It's not an important book, but it's essential, if you are sick of the generic marketing campaigns everywhere on social media and in print.
This picture book is a inspiration to be more creative in social media ads and marketing as well. We have to stop this generic bullshit and concentrate on real, intelligent ads plus on our work too.  I would love to see my campaign on billboards around the world, :-p, maybe someone will do it... Find more Information here. Greetings from Vienna, Thomas Zahlten PS: Available from 27th of November 2017 at Amazon and everywhere in bookstores.
