Editorial Reviews


"As CEO of a cybersecurity company, I fight The Talent War every day. Fortunately, I've had a front row seat to the principles of The Talent War applied in real-time. They just work and could shift the momentum in your favor."
--Matthew Moynahan, CEO, Forcepoint

"Having worked in two industries, where the product of the business is the talent you field, it begins with a great hiring process. The Talent War draws upon the lessons learned from over 50 years of selecting and developing high performing teams to provide actionable insights for any business competing for talent."
--Brian Decker, Director of Player Development, Indianapolis Colts, and former U.S. Army Special Forces Officer

"As a nominating committee member for Ernst & Young's Entrepreneur of the Year, I assess hundreds of companies and their leaders. The differentiator between those that are selected and those that are not, comes down to TALENT. Every winner and finalist over the last 34 years has a talent mindset. Mike and George lay the groundwork on how to select and retain the best talent."
--David Cochran, Executive Vice President, Colliers International

 "The Talent War provides critical insights into what it actually takes to recruit and retain the best talent in this VUCA environment."
-- Joe DePinto, President & CEO, 7-Eleven, Inc.

"As a third-generation family business, finding and retaining talent is the key factor to our long-term success. Quality of character is hard to identify on a resume; let The Talent War give you invaluable insight to find and create winning teams."
--Twylah Blotsky, President & CEO, Butler Machinery Company

"Anyone who hires and leads people knows that excellent teams don't happen by accident. The Talent War shows how the hiring practices used by our Special Operations community can be used by any business to build and retain exceptional teams."
--Evan Loomis, Co-Founder, ICON and Author of 'Get Backed'
