Ask Barb: Training and Advice — Who To Listen To?


Dear Barb:

I read The Fordyce Letter every month and it sometimes gets confusing. All of you speakers don’t agree on how to do this job, so whom do I listen to? I hear you saying to develop client and candidate rapport vs. control while others say you have to establish control. I work for a company that does not provide training so I’m trying to learn all I can on my own. Where do I find the advice and training I need?
