Within graduate management education, we spend a lot of effort identifying talent—talent to fill our classrooms, talent to teach our programs, and talent to staff our professional roles. In addition, we have an obligation to educate our students about selecting and nurturing talent as they take on these responsibilities in whatever careers they pursue. Yet according to our keynote speaker, Claudio Fernández-Aráoz, few of us have the proper education on how to get people decisions "right", nor are we hard-wired to do so. In this engaging presentation, the author of It's Not the How or the What but the Who shares with us his view of some of the chief obstacles in selecting talent, as well as systematic suggestions for overcoming these challenges.
