A little story that someone told me
"Mr X was sat at dinner between Mr Y and Mr Z, both of whom were renowned and Mr Z was very successful. After dinner Mr X said "When you sat at dinner with Mr Y you came away believing that he was perhaps the smartest individual you'd ever met....but you can see why Mr Z is so successful, when you sat with him you came away thinking that you were the smartest person on earth"
Mmmm food for thought, are you Mr Y or Mr Z? Do you place value on the person that you are talking to? And which one would attract talent?
