Editorial Reviews

Review

Over two years, I hired 40 candidates in three countries from Dr. Barro, my exclusive search consultant. I couldn't believe that almost every candidate she presented to me was, in fact, The Right Fit. I didn't need to see lots of candidates and select the 'best' among them, and I saved an enormous amount of time. The quality and character of the hires matched my blueprint for growth plans extremely well. --Tom Lombardo, Founding Editor-in-Chief, WebMD

WIN Without Competing! is more than a self-help book; it's a clear path to personal and professional success. The author's method of success eliminates competition by allowing candidates to develop and focus on their own personal goals...a must read for employers, employees, entrepreneurs, and anyone in the market for a new job or career. --Nurse Week/Nursing Spectrum

What are the secrets of a winning job hunt? Few experts offer advice as intriguing - or usable - about that quest as Arlene Barro, president and CEO of L.A.-based barro global search, inc. and a nationally recognized educator, educational psychologist, search consultant and career coach. In her new book, WIN Without Competing!, from Capital Books, Barro reveals her Right Fit Method, described in the media as 'an almost Zen-like approach' to job hunting, --UCLA Magazine

If you're in the market to switch jobs or careers--or if you're on the other side of the table, doing the hiring--this book is a MUST READ. "Win Without Competing" Author and Search Consultant Dr. Arlene Barro has developed a revolutionary approach that exploits her experience at fitting the right people into the right positions. That is, the one person best suited for the job.

And when I say right people or right positions, I mean perfect. Like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle that fit snuggly and smoothly together.

Dr. Barro has taken the guess work out of the search. Her savvy insight in placing perfect candidates means that her goal is to achieve a match made in HR heaven.

The pages of "Win Without Competing" are filled with the stories of people who have succeeded with Dr. Barro's The Right Fit Method. Her method is explained in easy to follow, bulleted pages. Dr. Barro's holds your hand throughout the process of the search, step-by-step, through her stories, her charts, her checklists. But the most fun was reading the anecdotes of real people.

The bio of the author notes that Arlene Barro, Ph.D., founder and president of the executive search and coaching firm barro global search, inc., who makes her living by being an angel on behalf of sparklingly competent candidates and a breath of fresh air to the employers looking for them.

Are you weary of the same old thing on your journey to your career? Whether you're unemployed, underemployed or looking for new challenges, "WIN Without Competing with the Right Fit Method," authored by educational psychologist Dr. Arlene Barro, may be the key to your professional and personal success.

"Win Without Competing!, Career Success the Right Fit Way" is a valuable resource book that provides a much needed service to the reader. It is a step by step process in which the candidate clearly identifies him/herself, finding a core identity and devises a blueprint to match skills, abilities, training and experience to specific criteria rather than competing with the masses. You will become familiar with terms such as "right fit," "package to pitch", "selling your brand" etc. These terms come to life as you move through the process.

Dr Barro skillfully debunks the long held myths of the employer-employee relationship, and illustrates the dos and don'ts through many personal stories. She acts as the reader, poses and answers questions throughout with clarity. Using graphics, repetition and reminders, readers begin to see a new way of proceeding.

The reader begins to realize the faulty assumptions. I know having read all of those vague internet HR postings that they indeed may not know whom they are looking for. Taking the best of the first ten applicants does not give you credit for your talents and it forces one to try to be "square peg in a round hole." Do you really want that? Do you really want just any old' job? I dare say, in this economy, maybe yes... but not for the long term. You... are better than that. I know I am!

It's a dog-eat-dog world. Only the fittest deserve to survive. And you can indeed win through intimidation.

If anyone could be expected to attest to the above, it would be a corporate headhunter--which brings us to a new book with the unexpected title of "Win Without Competing" by Arlene Barro, Ph.D, a prominent search consultant, career coach, and educational psychologist. At first glance, the book would appear to belong in the "Warm and Fuzzy Self-Help Section" of your friendly neighborhood mega-bookstore. Well, Barro does convey warmth, but there's nothing fuzzy about her. She possesses the mien of a caring but uncompromising commander sending her clients into battle.

She minces no words about the sometimes cutthroat nature of the job market; she'd be the first to warn of snakes in the tall grass. There are no mantras here, no clicking of ruby slipper heels--only solid strategy peppered with no-nonsense aphorisms.

But, as implied by its title, the book is built on a fundamental paradigm shift. Barro's stated mission is to steer her readers to what she terms the "flawless fit"--the job and career for which one is uniquely suited. And when this concept is broken down to a molecular level of specificity, when a perfect DNA match is attained between the job-seeker and the job, it can be concluded with an almost scientific degree of accuracy that there is no real competition involved. The match by definition is symmetrical--not only must the individual fit the requirements of the job, but the job must fit the requirements of the individual.

To know where to look for your own flawless fit, you need to know precisely what it means for you. Thus, attaining a clear-sighted understanding of your core self is the first step on the journey.

Dr. Barro's "Win Without Competing" leads you into the inner game of personal development with the precision of a choreographer and the wisdom of a master coach.
As a human resource executive, in a critical and protracted career transition, I have engaged Dr. Barro as my coach. Our journey together has been the source of very meaningful gifts...learning how to clarify and embrace my unique career blue print, affirming my core identity and teaching me how to identify and challenge those faulty assumptions that can get in the way of achieving continued growth and success.
You owe it to yourself to read this book...just know that it evokes an inner call for the courage to take a new look at yourself and learn who you are NOW and how to find the Right Fit for the future.
The result will be renewed emotional and phsyical energy that will enable you to play and win at your own game.
David Belle-Isle, PhD
