“I spent literally my entire life since I was 16 thinking about this,” he said. “My father was a management consultant, like a business coach. And he developed these really cool behavioral aptitude assessments. He was an introvert – like a researcher, scientist kind of guy. And I was like this crazy outgoing extrovert…My dad was chirping at me in the background saying, ‘get the right people on the bus and good things are gonna happen inside of your organization,’ and that just stuck with me for some reason.”
The main topics of today's episode will be:
The importance of talking to the right references.
