That led him to four questions that every leader must ask, the short versions of which are:

What is the core business we are in?
Where does this get created?
Who creates our differentiated value?

We asked fully-employed professionals to describe their current jobseeking status. Approximately 25% of global respondents claim to be actively looking for their next role. A whopping 45% are open to talking with a recruiter and another 15% are talking to their network. Only 15% say they are not interested in a new job.
