Leadership, Practical Ideas, and Creative Solutions

“Culture and leadership start at the top of the organization, so if you’re at the top, you want to be involved.” – Bruce Craven

“Be creative on the front end with the talent that you’re trying to bring in… There may be some creative things you can do on the compensation side so it’s not something that hits you all at once.” – Jason Fields

“We need to hire for the most valuable skills, and not look to have somebody do every single skill that we may want. So if you think about it with hiring a software engineer, you might need a software engineer who really needs to be a manager and leader more than an actual coder. If you spend ungodly amounts of effort making sure they’re a top coder, you’re paying for something that may not be important to your organization.” Ed Kopko
