Any comments about this Framework? Which Level Are You In?

Created this "framework" recently for a workshop that we were conducting a week ago. We needed something quick to understand at which level an organization was - in terms of their use and understanding of using social networking platforms and their overall use of Digital mediums to attract and manage talents.

Mike Astringer Interview - Animal Show

We had a great show today on The Recruiting Animal Show. And I'm going to say it was because we had a guest who was willing to answer questions. Also, because we talked about recruiting which everyone understands and therefore everyone could chime in with something to say.

We did talk about alpha males as well but, really, that's a regular topic on the Recruiting…
