The Future is Talent Sufficiency, Not Talent Scarcity

The CEO of Uber recently posed one of the most important questions leaders can ask about their own organizations.

Appearing during the first week of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Travis Kalanick was asked about the future of Uber. He focused on Uber Eats, an on-demand food delivery service being quietly rolled out in select cities.

SETI, Snowden and Search

Why Recruiters on Your Team Aren’t Listening

Leaders are often frustrated that they have to repeat themselves. Are the recruiters and other staff members on their team not listening?
