Higher Learning: Want a great employee? Hire a dancer

Herald Tribune    April 26, 2018
If I were a CEO, I would hire a dancer.

Good employees are not hard to find. Great ones are very hard to find. They are very hard to find, not because they aren’t out there, but because we are looking in the wrong places for the wrong people with the wrong experience and preparation. I know this is true because, as the provost at New College, I lead a faculty who prepare students who are exactly the kind of great employees that CEOs need.
