The story of the Sword of Damocles is over 2000 years old dating back to the time of Plato. A good summary on the original story can be found on Wikipedia.
Our modern take on this ancient story is that the sword hanging over Damocles head represents all the stress resulting from pressure, risk and uncertainty in today's business world.
Damocles Sword (both Recruiting and Consulting) seeks to reduce that stress and uncertainty by providing expert recruiting and consulting advise.
