How to deal with your stars
In this episode, I had the great pleasure of having Frank Jansen join Le Podcast to discuss how to deal with stars. We started the discussion referencing how Kim Scott defines Rock Stars and Super Stars in her book: Radical Candor. Rock stars are a source of stability for the team, people very talented, and they will keep doing it for years. Superstars are a source of growth for the team; they want to change everything; they are looking to grow at their next level. More on the blog!

How to form a team?
Today I had the chance to sit with Valentin Yonchev and Matt Takane from the Red Hat Open Innovation Labs. Wanting to benefit from their vast experience of building cross-functional teams, I asked them a question: How to form a team? This episode of the podcast is their answers to that question. You will find a lot of practical things to apply in your context whether you need to assemble a group of people only for a meeting, for a short engagement, or longer term.
