Every other Saturday when I am in Mumbai I spent at least in the office. As I am employing people there, often it's their only chance to go to an interview as their current employer wouldn't allow them to take half a day off. Their curent companies are afraid that people could have an interview and therefore leave them...

What bullshit mindset is that?

In my interviews I am telling the candidates, I want them to be open minded and if they feel that they want to change their career path in a different direction, they should tell me. I won't be mad at them, either I can support them and we can figure out a way in the current company, or if that's not an option, they will find their luck in another organisation. Then I will find someone that suits the role. If people want to stay in the exact same role for the rest of their life, it's anyhow not the people I want to work with.

Leading by fear and pressure doesn't lead anywhere. People are what makes the difference.

Back to the future...
