2) What differentiates an average Recruitment Consultant from an outstanding Recruitment Consultant?

I am very interested to get input from your experiences of observing great consultants or by being one yourself and knowing what they or you do differently that separates the good from the average. I know this is a broad question and it can be what they believe or values they have, what they say, think or do – anything that for you makes the difference.
