What you will learn:

Making great people decisions is a critically important element for our career success. Once we become managers everything we do will depend on the people we’ve chosen: Our results, our performance, our risks, our chances of being promoted. In an increasingly turbulent environment, the skills needed may change dramatically while the frequency and urgency of critical decisions sharply increases. Turbulent environments represent a unique opportunity for investing in the right talent. In a troubled environment, some exceptional talents may become available.

  • Why selecting the right people is at least as important as selecting the right strategy
  • What are the characteristics of a “winner” and how to recognize them
  • What makes people decisions so hard and how you can master them
  • Why making great people decisions is the most controllable factor in the success of an organization
