The A Team

When I landed my first job, I was clearly a fresh-faced, novice at 19.  It was a company that employed 4,000 people.  One day, I attended a big company event, and the Chairman took to the stage.  He said many things while he was on the podium, but there was one part that leapt at me, and 20 years later, I share them with you–  “…hire people for 3 things.  Wit, passion and integrity.  When you are dim, you are dim.  When you are bright, you are bright.  There is no getting out of it.  Hire passionate people. Everything follows passion.  But most importantly, hire for integrity, because if you don’t—the first two will kill you.”  Meet my A Team.
