15% reduction probably means getting one additional Exec hired. That can't be a STRUGGLE.

When Heidrick was in the process of starting and organizing the company, if he had wanted the company to constantly get bigger and bigger and more and more successful, and rather than constantly being overcome by problems, instead of making someone named Struggles as his partner he should have gone into partnership with someone whose last name was "Strong," " Powers," or "Constant."
