CEO Weisler on how he hires, "I look for raw intelligence. I don’t need a high I.Q., but I do need people to be street smart. And I look for fire in the belly. If you’re missing either of those two things, or if you don’t have them in abundance, things won’t work out well. Then I look for the ability to lead. Often, I’ll learn about you in a conversation structured around your career. So I’ll get up and scribble on a whiteboard, and ask about all things you’ve done and learned. 'What’s been the biggest curveball you didn’t expect? How did you deal with it?'" Also, how does he run a massive $52B enterprise? "I also use a framework called the 'three waves of innovation.' It’s a surfing analogy. Wave one is the wave you’re on at the moment, the current core business. Wave two is about looking at all the waves that are coming in and deciding which one to choose. That’s about growth. And the third wave is what all great surfers do, which is to go home and pull the weather reports and figure out when the next big one is coming. In business, that’s pure invention and category creation." (link
