Barak Obama’s Team Building Challenge

Jack Welch writes an interesting column in this week’s BusinessWeek about the difficulties President-elect Obama will face in building his own team.

Welch goes on to say that many of the challenges will be like those facing any senior executive in a new position, with the following three as potentially vital areas to manage well. You can see why!

  • Automatically reward loyalists
  • Hire people who need the work or lust for the prestige of being on your team
  • Focus all your attention on crisis hires

The whole article really is worth the read at
