It’s an executive’s guide to finding, keeping, and growing the best.
About The Author
Vistage Member Kathleen Quinn Votaw is CEO of TalenTrust, which is revolutionizing how companies find, keep, and grow great people. After nearly two decades of earning accolades in the staffing industry, Kathleen determined that traditional models don’t always serve the best interest of clients—especially rapidly growing companies. She vowed to disrupt the stagnant staffing/recruiting industry. In 2003, Kathleen launched TalenTrust to act as a strategic partner in helping companies attract and retain top talent. Her innovative firm offers a professional services approach, a proven process, and guaranteed results. Kathleen’s passion for growth allows her to connect business leaders with the right people and ideas to drive faster growth. Her success is based on a core belief that people and relationships are critical to business success. As a long-time Vistage member, Kathleen attributes much of her firm’s 300% revenue growth over the past 3 years to participation in the Vistage community. Her book, Solve the People Puzzle; How High-Growth Companies Attract and Retain Top Talent debuts in early 2016.
Praise for Solve the People Puzzle
“Kathleen provides the necessary pieces for solving one of the biggest challenges CEOs face today—attracting and retaining top talent and keeping them engaged. We live in a world where accomplishing all three has never been tougher or more necessary. It’s a must read for any business leader.”
—Leon Shapiro, Director on Vistage Worldwide Board and Coauthor of The Power of Peers
“I’ve been referring companies to Kathleen and TalenTrust for years because her approach is totally different and it works. I am sold on this key concept, which Kathleen employs both in her business and in this book: if you want A-players on your team, your company must spend as much time and effort attracting and retaining talented employees as it does on finding and keeping clients.”
—Jack Daly – JackDaly.net
“People are the puzzle for many business leaders. In our never-ending search for the silver bullet, Kathleen’s book offers powerful insights for your company.”
