Publisher's Summary

There is a long-standing truth in the world of organizations: Talent wins! But how do you attract the best people? What do they really want? Based on his rigorous and extensive research, Mark Miller learned that top performers are looking for very different things than solid contributors.
In Talent Magnet, Miller uses a clever and entertaining business fable to share these findings. He tells the parallel stories of Blake Brown, a CEO struggling with winning the war for talent, and Blake's 16-year-old son, Clint, who is trying to get his first job so he can raise money to buy a well for a village in Africa.
Blake reaches out to leaders in other industries and works with his team to solve the puzzle of making his organization a destination for exceptional performers. But he also learns from his son. Listening to Clint and his friends compare notes on the companies they've worked for that summer, ranging from the awful to the inspirational, Blake realizes they want the same three things out of a job as any top performer in a Fortune 500 company.
Miller identifies these three critical aspects of a true talent magnet and explores the deeper meaning of each. He pulls back the curtain on what leaders can do to find and retain the very best people - a strategic need every leader faces.

Great book - poor narration

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator needs to seek another line of work! His corny accents and voice characterization actually detracts from the story and the message. One has to consciously get past his lousy effort to get the value of the book.

A great read with eye opening material

Talent Magnet was a great listen. I really appreciate a lot of the practical things addressed in the book that lend to attracting top tier talent. I’ve seen many of these core competencies in great organizations I’ve worked for in the past.


I’m not a fan of the narrative style of presenting the material, but the points were well made.
