The right person in the business is game-changing. So my advice is to take a look and evaluate your business and what talent you have against what talent is out there and available and what it could look like. I've actually written a book, so this is the Talent Acquisition Blueprint. I didn't hold anything back in this book. There are no secrets here. All of the processes we use and teach and coach and implement in companies are here.
Do you want to learn effective ways to build relationships, generate sales, and grow your business from successful entrepreneurs, startups, and CEOs, without listening to a long, long, long interview? If so, you've come to the right place. Gresham Harkless values your time and is ready to share with you precisely the information you're in search of.
This is the I AM CEO podcast.

Hello, hello, hello. This is Gresh from the I AM CEO podcast and I appreciate you listening to this episode. And if you've been listening this year, you know that we hit 1600 episodes at the beginning of this year. We're doing something a little bit different where we're repurposing our favorite episodes around certain categories or topics or as I like to call them business pillars that we think are going to be extremely impactful for CEOs, entrepreneurs, and business owners, and what I like to call the CB nation architects who are looking to level up their organizations.
This month we are focused on our greatest asset, talent management and hiring. Think from great resignation to great renovation. And if you disagree with me, maybe these episodes might be especially for you. Life and especially business have changed. It has forced those that are within organizations to look differently at talent, and how it's being managed.
When we talk about change, think about it, we have to realize that business as usual is no longer here. And that's evident in attracting and retaining clients, but also in setting up people within organizations to succeed. Think onboarding, think DEI, diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging, how it is working from home and even going back into the office.
Things are different, in this month, We are going to explore these topics by featuring CEO hacks and CEO nuggets but also interviews that focus, is on these changes and how organizations can make sure they care for and attract the most valuable asset, their people. Sit back and enjoy this special episode of the I AM CEO podcast.
