To get ahead you need to recruit, retain, and mentor a great team

This Google exec’s success shows how it pays off to invest in talent – Quartz

With the news that Google is to restructure into new holding company called Alphabet, control of its core search engine business has been handed to rising star Sundar Pichai.

What has Sundar been doing which other Google execs haven’t? Good old-fashioned team building.

Pichai succeeded by avoiding some of that big think and focusing more on people management. Particularly for managers that want to rise in a company or move on to start their own business, investing in building a great team is absolutely essential. Even at a company as focused as Google is on finding great people, that takes individual commitment and skill.
