SIMPLE brand #46: Michael Solomon - Game Changer: How to be 10x in the Talent Economy



In this week’s episode of the SIMPLE brand With Matt Lyles podcast I talk with Michael Solomon, author of Game Changer: How to be 10x in the Talent Economy! 


It’s no secret - highly skilled employees bring at least 10 times their value to your organization, maybe even more!


When you have highly skilled, 10x high performers in your organization your business is more agile, more innovative, more productive, more collaborative and much more effective. It’s like your team has, and continues to experience, transformational growth.


But how do you  create a culture and leadership behaviors and habits that recruit these high 10x performers? And once you do have them, how do you lead, manage and develop them? And here's the $50k dollar question - once you have them, how do you retain them?


It’s not easy, especially in 2021 as so many organizations are experiencing the GREAT RESIGNATION.


And that’s why I’m happy to talk with Michael Solomon this week.


Michael is the co-founder of 10X Management, where they help companies find the top tech experts. He’s been featured in Harvard Business Review, Wall Street Journal, Forbes, CNN, and much more. I was excited to find out that he’s got a pretty cool connection to the original 10x BOSS - Bruce Springsteen.


And he’s the co-author of Game Changer: How To Be 10x in the Talent Economy.


In Game Changer, Michael provides you with proven strategies on how your company can create the right environment for top talent and breakthrough success by upending traditional business practices - those practices that everyone assumes are the right ones because "WE’VE ALWAYS DONE IT THIS WAY."

He also reveals how professionals can evolve from good to great to 10x, and enjoy all the perks and rewards that this status brings.
