Alongside our roles as visionary/architect for our businesses, and the necessity of full-scope oversight, talent acquisition is a primary function for every CEO.
Building an organization is fundamentally about developing an environment conducive to the growth of personnel who provide goods and services to clients and customers.
The better the environment, which includes recruiting, training, and career-nurture, the longer the right people will want to stay with you and help you to build. An ideal, harmonious work culture is one in which employers and employees collaborate to help one another grow.

The heart, liver, pancreas, and arteries do too. I can bring in $20 million in new business tomorrow—delicious to me, but my team then has to absorb and digest all that fresh catch.
