Tip of the Day
Passion is the number one thing that I look for in a manager. IQ is not really that important. They need to be able to work well with others and the ability to get people to do what you want them to do. If you could put 10% of your future earnings on one of your classmates, you would pick the one that's most effective at working with people. These are qualities that are elective. If you could pick one to sell short, it would be the person that no one wants to work with. When I took over Solomon I had to pick the best person to run it. I interviewed 12 people for 15 minutes each and I asked myself, "Who would I go into a foxhole with?" I never look at grades or where you went to school.
