HR tips for drafting and cultivating your own ‘Tom Brady’ or ‘Aaron Rodgers’

Think the NFL was happy with this past Sunday’s games? I sure do. The NFL playoffs are in full swing and that usually is great news for the league since they get to dominate the sports headlines for a while. But after a weekend and a half of lackluster matchups and boring blowouts, the NFL must be counting its lucky stars that it finally got two competitive games in the divisional round playoffs this past Sunday, with the back-and-forth matchup between the Packers and Cowboys serving as an instant classic.  Chief help an employee to hit the ball

After the dust has settled, four teams now remain. And there’s a similar thread running through each of these four remaining teams: outstanding quarterbacks. Matt Ryan may not have had previous playoff success, but he’s had a phenomenal year that will likely garner him the MVP award. Aaron Rodgers has been the hottest quarterback down the stretch and is annually one of the leaders at his position.

Beyonce: I just might be the next Bill Gates in the making

Who wants to be the next Bill Gates in the making? The answer may surprise you. Beyoncé (or “Queen Bey”), a music scene A-lister and the woman who “runs the world” (if you ask her legions of devoted fans, known as the “BeyHive”), gives the world’s richest man a major shout-out in her new single, “Formation.” If you have not seen the video on YouTube or streamed the track on Tidal, Beyoncé gave us all a taste of it in Sunday night’s Super Bowl halftime show with Coldplay and Bruno Mars. In her new single, she sings, “You just might be a black Bill Gates in the making/I just might be a black Bill Gates in the making.” Gates may appreciate the positive press, especially after some recent criticism about his early managerial methods, such as his penchant for profanity and prowling the parking lot on weekends to document who had arrived at work. leadership

Gates, who has seemingly mellowed considerably over the years, has been pretty open about his early methods, disclosing in a recent radio interview for BBC’s “Desert Island Discs” that he did not really believe in vacations and he memorized everyone’s license plates to see when people came into work. However, Gates stated, “I had to be a little careful not to try and apply my standards to how hard [others] worked . . . . Eventually I had to loosen up as the company got to a reasonable size.” Others have come forward over the years with stories about Gates’ allegedly harsh leadership style earlier in his career.
