“You are what your record says you are” – Bill Parcells is quoted in “The Outsiders” a book about Eight Unconventional CEOs…

…..“The Outsiders”:  Eight Unconventional CEOs and Their Radically Rational Blueprint for Success” by William Thorndike.  I don’t agree entirely with this rear view mirror perspective. There is an obsession with it in recruitment. Potential is as important as history.  Maslow saw value in this. But the book is very interesting on the common traits and methods that made these CEOs successful.
