Episode Description

As companies face an increased velocity of change and level of complexity, the biggest challenge for most organizations is finding and developing top talent. Companies and media often point to a growing skills gap as the main reason, but are we looking for the right qualities in our employees and potential candidates? What attributes and mindsets will help companies thrive in the new competitive environment? John Hagel, co-chairman of the Deloitte Center for the Edge, will join me to discuss why boosting employee engagement is no longer sufficient for sustaining company performance. Before joining Deloitte, John was a principal at McKinsey & Co. from 1984 to 2000, where he was a leader of the Strategy Practice. He founded and led McKinsey’s Electronic Commerce Practice from 1993 to 2000. In this episode, he will share insights on how to identify important attributes and nurture employee passion.
