We've all heard of the golden rule. I like to practice the "platinum rule". "Do unto others the way others like to be done unto." All of us desperately want others to really listen to what we have to say. Since the telephone is the main communication tool that I use, aggressive listening is not only the key but it is imperative to understanding. I try to model superb listening skills when communicating with my candidates and clients and I expect them to demonstrate that same skill. It is my goal to maintain an informal, relaxed, candid, and cheerful "tone" in each conversation. Why create barriers to honest communication.
People I recruit:
Some people get too comfortable in their jobs. They stop growing. I am constantly looking for the impact players who show evidence of constantly growing. I know them when I see them. I can hear it in their voices. They are excited about making a difference. Candidates who I place have an ethic of constant improvement. My job simply is to match growth opportunities with growing and talented people.
Who are our clients?
We represent opportunities at Fortune 100 companies as well as opportunities at numerous small companies in medical device, medical equipment, medical disposables, diagnostics, biotech.

- Dear Ray,
It was a pleasure speaking with you again this evening. Regardless of how this all turns out, I hope that perhaps you have gained something in our conversations. I hope I haven't given you the impression of arrogance in any way. I only know that analytical testing using sophisticated instruments is not simple. Those methods, which are usually turnkey, are often flawed in unexpected ways. Perhaps, if I cannot move your client in the right direction, then there may be other opportunities to work together. Maybe in the capacity of helping me find the right individuals. Heck, you are certainly going to understand this field. But for now, I will state what I believe the right thing to do is. Please know I was honest in our discussions and that I tried to give the most balanced perspective I could. And good luck to both of us as we try to move mountains to help newborns and even change a bit of health care in this country.
