Learning From Talal


 

Hire enthusiasm they say. And I always thought I had that lesson mastered. Afterall, I already find it hard to sit round instructing others on how to do things in a way that ensures that the work we turn out meets my standards of perfection, so why would I compound my own agony by hiring a person reluctant to work?

But then these days, the Arabs are teaching me a different way of seeing business. Much learning. Read more of this post
