The following is an excerpt from the interview: "Talent is a CEO prerogative. Talent starts with the CEO and people really follow people. I always say good advice for people in early years, is don’t look for job, look for great leaders.  Instead of looking for a job look to be led by someone who will be teaching you a lot, this will serve you a lot more than a job.”
