In contrast to The Slacker, The Sage is an
eminence grise who has seen and done it all. A retired military officer, a defrocked nun, or, you guessed it, a former Olympic coach, The Sage has had a far more interesting career than you -- and now she's willing to share her pearls of wisdom.
Hire: The Sage may inspire you with Shakespeare's St. Crispin's Day speech, or maybe she'll remind you that getting laid-off is not as bad suffering from leprosy in the Black Hole of Calcutta; such left-field, out-of-the-box insight can often inspire productive ideas.
Fire: The Sage often doesn't know the difference between a CD and a CDO. Thus your uplifting discussions are destined to remain at 50,000 feet.
