Scott Drake
Listen to the episode

The war for talent is perhaps as fierce as it has ever been. Consequently, business leaders across the board are putting more energy into attracting and then hiring the best people for the right roles.

It’s no easy feat.

Today’s guest Scott Drake helps leaders make great decisions about who they onboard along with how to guide high potentials through the leadership pipeline. Scott is a sought-after consultant and trainer who made every mistake when rising through the leadership ranks. After seeing emerging leaders on his teams repeating the same mistakes, he set out to find a simpler and faster way to grow leaders. When he couldn’t find a shortcut, he invented one. His 25-year career includes stops at Microsoft in Redmond, Washington and start-ups in Silicon Valley.

A few of the questions Scott addresses include:

-How can someone accelerate their growth from a role player to a leader?
-Why is it essential for leaders to “lose the competency war?”
-How can leaders improve their hiring of other leaders?

Enjoy 🙂
