In reading Mavericks at Work I came across a number of very interesting quotes from Dr. John Sullivan. Checking out his "about" page I loved this line: "Dr. John Sullivan is well known as a provocateur, a characteristic which has both guided and distinguished our work throughout the years." If you’ve tripped across any of his quotes in Mavericks, the idea that he might be a provocateur will ring true.
One of my favorite Sullivan quotes from Mavericks is: "The first rule of recruiting is that the best people already have jobs they like. So you have to find them; they’re not going to find you…Recruiting has to be a clever, fastmoving business discipline, not a passive, paper-pushing bureaucracy (p. 208)."
