Sponge Homer

Homer H. Hillis, Jr. sponges all kinds of information, business, political and trends. I've been seen on the Sally Jesse Rafeal show with noted trend spotter Faith Popcorn. My Blog will give you an over view of what I'm seeing and reflections on the same.

I recently read this book:


Here's a few notes I compiled for this book and his follow up book:

Employee development and a strengthening talent pool:

Select the right people
Set Expectations
Develop Employees with training

"Managers do things right, while leaders do the right things"

"Managers focus inward, inside the company, while leaders focus outward as visionaries"

How do Leaders release potential energy in their employees----

Know that people don't change that much from when you hire them
--Hire for Talent
--Set the outcomes you desire
--Look for FIT

Talent is defined as a reoccurring pattern of thought or practice that can be applied in a given sitting"
