Tom Peters Coaches

Tom Peters is one of my favorite reads (along with Seth Godin). In his latest blog post, Tom reviews the book, Bo's Lasting Lessons by Bo Schembechler. The book has a chapter titled "Recruit for Character", which about sums up my Hiring 101 session at ISPCON. You hire on Attitude, because skills can be taught -- friendly cannot.

We live in a media filled world of buzz words, but at the end of the day, it's all about Execution. From Bo: "I've always believed eye-popping innovation is not as important as perfect execution." To compete in telecom today, you need innovation - in marketing. You need to combine services into an easy to use tool for productivity. That takes innovation and execution.
