On the Brink with Andi Simon

Jun 19, 2017

Kim Shepherd joined Decision Toolbox, a 100 percent virtual organization providing recruitment solutions in 2000 as CEO. Decision Toolbox and its parent company, Engage2Excel, offer the industry’s only recruiting solutions that optimize engagement throughout the talent acquisition process and career lifecycle. Today, Kim is chairwoman and leads the companies’ growth strategy.

She focuses on developing partnerships and alliances, and is an active member of the Los Angeles and Orange County human resources communities. A recognized thought leader by HR organizations nationwide including the Human Capital Institute, Kim is a regular speaker at national and regional events on various business models. 

Calling Kim unconventional is an understatement – her former endeavors include 10 years as a TV and Foreign Correspondent, a stint at Club Med and a near miss at a spot on the Olympic ski team.

In this episode, Kim Shepard and I discuss:

  • Filling the gaps from her background
  • Why common sense is often the KEY
  • Sometimes you have to work work extra hard as a woman in business
  • Finding work-life balance
  • Strategies and tactics that will help get you 10x results
  • What to do if you are feeling down and lost
  • The importance of embracing your job
  • Technology forecasting - robots taking over our jobs
  • Her challenge to the audience
