The boss that guides you

In Episode 67 of the Best Boss Ever podcast, Tom Shields, co-founder of Shields Group Search, joins Christine to talk about his best boss ever: Carolyn Kimmick. Tom talks about how Carolyn took him under her wing as he began his career in executive recruitment, teaching him how to manage difficult and high-stakes conversations with accomplished candidates. 

Though Tom recalls Carolyn being a coach and mentor, he also recounts how she gave him the space to fail, so he could learn from his own mistakes. 

Listen in to hear how this experience set up Tom for a successful career in executive recruitment, and how his best boss ever helped him learn the importance of composure, compassion, and collaboration.
