What Randy Street Talks About:
Who: The A Method for Hiring
Randy solves every manager’s #1 problem: making hiring mistakes. He presents stories and advice drawing from some of the most extensive research, interviews, and experience ever assembled on the topic of talent management. Why are most managers terrible at hiring? How do you generate a source of the right candidates? What do you look for to pick the right one? How do you sell the ideal candidate on accepting a job at your company? Audience members learn how to make “who” decisions that lead to career, financial, and personal success.
Power Score: Your Formula for Leadership Success
Randy shares what all successful leaders actually do to succeed. Based on the largest leadership database of its kind and brought to life through entertaining stories and examples, Randy highlights how great leaders set the right priorities, pair those priorities with the right people (“who”), and create an environment where relationships can work. Priorities. Who. Relationships. Putting them together enables the world’s best leaders to run their team at full PWR (pronounced “power”).
Twenty years of research and consulting, deep analysis of over 15,000 leaders, and field interviews with hundreds of billionaires, CEOs, and successful investors all tell us that full powered leaders are 2-3x as successful as the average leader, and 20x more successful than the bottom 10% of leaders. Attendees come away from this experience able to maximize their team’s results, their company’s financial performance, and their own career success.
