Throughout my tenure of managing people, I have come to conclude that most employees' business motivations change very little from the time that you hire them to the time they leave your organization. If they are smart and aggressive, they will always be that way. However, if they have a bad attitude, are always looking for short cuts or are generally unmotivated, this too rarely changes. So the question is how do you ensure that you find and nurture talent to ultimately grow into excellent leaders? Our simple process is as follows:

  1. Hire smart people
  2. Good grades outrank experience
  3. Have a POV
  4. Practice like you play
  5. Good ideas come from many places
  6. Create opportunities to foster talent
  7. Loyalty is a shared responsibility
