Editor’s note: Alan Schonberg, founder of MRI and a pioneer in search, died Friday. His obituary is here.
You’d pick up the phone and it would be Alan.
Just calling to see how you were doing. Always with some compliment. Some encouragement. Some wisdom. Always about you.
His favorite thing was introducing a trainer – or in my case – the “placement lawyer” to MRI.
He became so successful by helping others succeed. One at a time. Then tens of millions, really. Including you. The MRI/SC/OM5 managers, franchisees and their recruiters. The associates of the managers, franchisees and their recruiters. The business model and techniques of successful practitioners everywhere. The candidates they place around the world. The employers they staff globally. Alan’s many philanthropic causes.
