I am the author of Mastering the Hire: 12 Strategies to Improve Your Odds of Finding the Best Hire. I am also a managing director for The Broad Center, a national non-profit founded by billionaire philanthropist Eli Broad. Focused on leadership development, the center annually partners with 40 organizations and trains 80 leaders. For the past ten years, I’ve recruited and developed talent across the country – and I learn more from them than they from me. I earned degrees in economics and psychology from UCLA and an M.B.A. from Stanford. As an introvert, I’m either helping leaders navigate their toughest challenges or I’m figuring out how to leave a room without anyone noticing. Connect with me on Twitter @chakabooker.
