A View from the Lake
Filed Under: Books
“What does an emotionally intelligent organisation look like?”, Daniel Goleman asked his readers in his 1998 book, “Working With Emotional Intelligence.” Answer. It looks like Egon Zehnder, the world’s most successful global executive search firm. In 1964, Egon Zehnder gave birth to a vague vision, an idea that few, if any could have imagined flourishing the way it did. An executive search firm in Europe less than two decades after a war that had sundered a continent. A professional service that began 50 years ago in the centre of Zurich and then spread across the globe, to 68 offices in 41 countries, serving clients in 20 different languages. An organisational culture the envy of its competitors and the preferred search firm for many of the world’s leading organisations. This is the Egon Zehnder story half a century later.
