NCMA Boston Presents – Hiring and Developing Talent

April 28, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

How To Do It Right. Lessons From “The Talent War”

Presented by NCMA Boston


In our modern business landscape, and especially during these unprecedented times battling COVID-19, the “war for talent” is more complex than ever and critical to success. Addressing this issue head on is one of the most timely and anticipated topics of today. Michael Sarraille, George Randle, and Thomas Lokar will discuss the topics of: hiring right, developing talent, and winning “The Talent War” by providing attendees best practices and lessons learned from the U.S. Special Operations community, widely known for creating the most renowned assessment and selection processes in the world. PEOPLE—not products or services—are an organization’s strongest competitive advantage.

Sarraille (CEO of EF Overwatch, a former Marine Recon operator, and retired Navy SEAL Officer ) and his colleagues plan on discussing these key ideas:

  • The business world has a lot to learn from how Special Operations (SOF) recruits, selects and develops individuals.
  • Every CEO in the country says they have a talent mindset — but their actions don’t always align with their words.
  • Today’s HR and talent acquisition teams are rarely structured or empowered to attract, hire, and retain the talent necessary to win.
  • Lack of a talent mindset inevitably means the end of the business.

Each attendee will be provided a complimentary e-copy of “The Talent War” for attending this webinar!
