Design & Execution
For effective Talent Attraction you need to see the full picture, end to end, taking the journey of the candidate front and center and be able to both tink and influence the C-suite stakeholders as well as think and act operationally, where design and execution meet. Bjorn is one of the few people I know that masters this to perfection.
