As recruiters, our lives revolve around "people decisions." We are called gate-keepers, gate-crashers, headhunters, talent consultants, etc. One thing each of these names has in common is the theme of people, and the decisions regarding where these people will live and work.
And that is one of the many reasons that people decisions are so important - on a personal level, they impact families and the community in which those families will live and thrive (possibly for generations). And, they impact our personal careers and the degree of success we will find in our corporate lives.
Great read in Fortune by one of my favorite authors - Jim Collins. Check out this link to get his take on "Why Are People Decisions So Important?"
