Great sports analogy on the qualities needed when looking for talent that will be irreplaceable at your company.
Interesting post on how you can better manage your contacts to help you overcome the DunBar’s Number. This is becoming more and more important in our hyper connected world.
How many posts have we seen that marked the end of job boards? 100? 1000? Jason has some great points in his bullets at the bottom on what you need to do to evaluate and use job boards to their fullest. I fully agree that you need to measure results with recruiting metrics and the great need to write great job advertisements.

Really nice piece on how to evaluate your current LinkedIn Network and the value it provides to potential connections.
Nice piece on the importance of creating a culture that makes taking risks OK. Failure is OK as long as you learn something from it.
