Stig Leschly, CEO of Match, on 5 Ways To Transform Your Team Into Rock Stars

This perfectly aligns to my theory of hiring lifelong learners over people with a proven skill set. With unending market, tech and marketing disruption, if you are doing the same job today you did 10 years ago, you should consider yourself at risk. Similarly, whatever you’re doing today will change in the next 10 years, so lean forward and be ready to learn!

“Whether you’re a teacher or an engineer, when you start in year one of your career, you know a tiny fraction of what you’re going to know in year 10,” says Leschly. He wants employees who want to get better.

Have you Googled yourself lately? I mean, really gave yourself a deep Googling?

What are people saying about you? What kinds of pictures will your boss, employees or (gasp!) kids discover with a few short clicks? What does any of this mean to your personal brand?

This Thursday I’m co-presenting “The Brand of You in the Digital Age” with Tim Brunelle at an event hosted by the Minnesota Chapter of the American Marketing Association and Minnesota Interactive Marketing Association (MIMA).
