    Right People; Right Seats: How to Attract, Retain & Develop Top Talent w/ Francisco (Cisco) Sacasa

    After a year of unprecedented pandemic layoffs, furloughs and shutdowns, something equally unprecedented happened:

    Everyone started hiring again all at once.

    In a job market with so many options, how do we ensure we still attract and retain top talent?

    To help answer that, I’m joined by Francisco (Cisco) Sacasa, CEO at HireBetter, where he has a unique inside-view on the challenges facing companies and job-seekers alike.

    In this episode, we discuss:
    -Why every company is your competitor when hiring top talent
    -Strategies for standing out from the crowd as an employer
    -How to get the right people sitting in the right seats (and keep them there)

    What COOs Can Learn from No Rules Rules w/ Lara Dodo

    What COOs Can Learn from No Rules Rules w/ Lara Dodo

    As leaders, we talk a lot about talent — acquisition, nurturing, retention — but how often do we talk about talent density?

    You don’t just need one or two superstars, you need a team of superstars to reach the critical mass needed to positively shape your organization.

    That’s one of the foundational concepts today’s guest, Lara Dodo, Chief Growth and Operating Officer at Newtopia, and I dissect as we discuss No Rules Rules — a book that should be required reading for every COO.

    In this episode, we discuss:
    What talent density means for your organization
    How candor should best be employed
    The concept of ownership — AKA freedom with responsibility

    Who Said Creatives Can’t Make Great COOs? w/ Rebeca de Ojeda

    Who Said Creatives Can’t Make Great COOs? w/ Rebeca de Ojeda

    You don’t have to choose between the creative process and systems.
    Like leadership, creativity is all about organizing chaos and making the abstract tangible.
    That’s why creatives are often great at operations, and are a fit as COO.
    If you need proof, you have to meet my latest guest, Rebeca de Ojeda , COO & EVP at Encompass Onsite. Rebeca didn’t trade creativity for analytical thinking — she married the two.
    That’s why she’s been so successful in operations.
    In this episode, we discuss:
    -The parallels between art and operations
    -Why growth leads artists towards more operational thinking
    -How to embrace data as a leader and a creative
