The Talent War

How Special Operations and Great Organizations Win on Talent
By Mike Sarraille
About the Summary

Organizations must develop a talent mindset, which involves a high level of focus on finding the right talent, choosing people with character that can be trained rather than focusing on people with poor character who may already have some of the job-specific skills they need. In The Talent War, veteran Special Forces leaders outline how SOF and other organizations find world-class talent and develop that talent into world-class leaders – and how your organization can do the same.

In This Summary You’ll Learn:

  • How the world’s best organizations find the right talent to excel
  • Why traditional hiring practices don’t work, and how to improve them
  • How Special Operations teams choose the right talent then train the right skills into those talented people in order to succeed
  • The nine foundational character attributes of talent, from drive and resiliency to curiosity and emotional strength
