Course Excerpt...

Everyone says that hiring the best talent possible is the most important thing...and they’re right…but…you need a spectrum of talent in every team.

Not all of a team’s responsibilities are cool or ground breaking so a team consisting solely of high performers struggles to keep everyone equally challenged and motivated…

Don’t make the mistake of setting the hiring bar so high that very few people ever get hired. I have seen many teams struggle because nobody could ever match their unrealistically high hiring standards…

Being flexible on office hours, working from home arrangements, office/remote locations and interim or permanent engagements may unlock the door to getting the talent you need to be successful.

Concise Wisdom Jack Hufher 5 Stars

I loved the simple, concise format of this course. Full of bite sized wisdom and instant takeaways to 'try now'. Rather than a massive tome of boring management theory, busy execs can watch this course on a train journey and get instant value. Highly recommended.

Highly recommend J Green 5 Stars

Found this course really helpful. Lots of ideas and advice that got me thinking as well as practical examples of successful strategies and advice on how to manage complicated projects. Highly recommend.

Well Done Ed H 5 Stars

If you read or listen to a story and instinct tells you it is correct than the author is probably on to something.

Really Good FD 5 Stars

The Best IT Leadership course I've ever seen...cuts to the chase and made me laugh a few times as well. Thanks!

Great Course Steve H 5 Stars

Not the usual "How great was I?" stuff and much more useful because of that...Rorie obviously knows his stuff and wants everyone else to benefit from his experience.
