Are you surrounding yourself with the right people? Yes, your success in business and in life depends on your own performance. But have you thought about how those around you affect that performance? Do they strengthen or weaken it? Help or hinder your progress?

In “It’s Not the How or the What but the Who” (a phrase adapted from Amazon’s Jeff Bezos), renowned global talent management expert Claudio Fernandez-Araoz explains why people decisions – the choices you make about friends, your spouse, employees, project partners, mentors, and even elected officials – are more important than any other. To thrive, you need to get the best people in your corner and on your team, and then help them grow. Engaging and often counterintuitive, the book is packed with important lessons on how to surround yourself with the best.
