Me, as we went up in the lift to my office: “You managed to find us okay?”

Client, with gratitude: “Yes, great thanks, the e-mail you sent with the directions and the address were perfect.”

Me, persisting: “So before you started out on your journey you knew what your destination was and the written instructions I sent you were extremely useful?”

Client, with a look that said, are you stupid, I just said that: “Yes, as I said, fine thanks.”

Me, as we sat down in my office for our chat about his career: “Have you started your campaign to find a new career opportunity? Have you started looking for a new job yet?

Client, enthusiastically: “Yes, I’ve applied for 14 jobs so far.”

Me, seeking confirmation: “Oh that’s excellent. So you have a written career objective and you know exactly what it is you’re really aiming for!”

Client, hesitantly: “Erm, yes - well, sort of,” - pause - “Well, no, not really!” #proteuscareermanagement
