James Ellis has become one of the gurus of recruiting properly.
Between the two of us, we’ve seen 40 years of recruiting mistakes. And pulled out most of our hair in the process. (What remains is grey.)
Based in Chicago, James is host of The TalentCast… the only other recruiting podcast I listen to.
He’s clear, edgy (but not just to be annoying), practical, and has pushed my thinking. Essentially, we’ve concluded, that to hire the best just do the opposite of what everyone else is doing. That’s how bad most executives are at it.
James rants. I chime in.
And we swear A LOT.
Don’t lose your hair or go grey. Instead invest 20 minutes on this episode.
