George Randle is an experienced veteran, coach, mentor, and hands-on leader known for selecting, building, and reorganizing teams to reach their full potential. George combines 20+ years of Fortune 100 and Fortune 1000 global Human Resources and Talent Acquisition Executive experience enabling individuals, teams, and organizations to achieve consistent and impactful outcomes. He has recently co-authored the best-selling book “The Talent War: How Special Operations and Great Organizations Win on Talent.” He is Hogan (HPI, HDS, and MVPI) Leadership Assessment Certified.

George began his professional life by enlisting in the USAR. While serving in the USAR he received his Bachelor’s Degree from Missouri State University and a commission as an Active-Duty Army Officer through ROTC. His career assignments included the US Army Berlin Brigade, US CENTCOM, and III Corps with deployments to Africa, Central America, and Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Over the course of his active-duty time, he was privileged to serve in key leadership assignments – twice as a Platoon Leader, as the Executive Officer for the largest company in Berlin, and finally 2 years as a Company Commander at Ft. Hood, Texas.

After his many successful leadership roles, George transitioned to the corporate world, experiencing many of the same challenges Veterans face today. It was these challenges that provided the inspiration for him to create the first Junior Military Officer Hiring Program for a Top-5 consulting firm. George later went on to create one of the largest and most successful Veteran Hiring Programs for a Global Fortune 50 firm. In both instances, these programs resulted in the employer being ranked as a Top 100 Military Friendly Employer.

For the last 20 years, concurrently with his roles as a Talent Acquisition Executive, George Randle has trained and coached 1000’s of Veterans on interviewing and career search skills. He continues today helping our Veterans successfully bring forward those critical leadership, management, and program management skills that make them invaluable assets to every company they join.

George Randle currently resides in Austin, Texas, and is Managing Partner at EF Overwatch and The Talent War Group.

Talent War: The Science of Acquiring the Elite Talent

Based on the best-selling book, The Talent War: How Special Operations and Great Companies Win on Talent.

From his time serving as an Army Officer to his 20+ years in Talent, hiring over 80,000 high-performers as a Managing Partner at EF Overwatch and The Talent War Group, George has distilled finding elite talent down to a science. In his best-selling book, Talent Wars, he teams up with former US Navy SEAL Mike Sarraille to explain how you can recruit and grow the best talent like a Special Ops team. This new, potential-based method of hiring throws skill-seeking out the window and focuses on:

- Predictive attributes to look for in a candidate
- Who should be interviewing your candidate: A-players will find other A-players
- How to structure an interview to bring out telling signs in a candidate
- ...and much more. Let George rewire the way you hire and help you build an elite team that can stand up to any challenge. 

How to Lead in the 21st Century 

As a leader, how do you prepare for the unforeseen? It’s impossible to find solutions or map out financial plans for problems no one can predict. However, there is a way to be certain your team can withstand unexpected crises. 

With over 20 years of experience hiring more than 80,000 elite applicants, as well as serving as a Managing Partner at EF Overwatch and The Talent War Group, George knows how to create resilient teams. In his talk, Geroge guides leaders to their full potential by showing them how to build a team based on character and invest in human capital as heavily as they invest in financial capital. Leaders are only as strong as their team, and George will help you become a great leader to an elite team. 

Build a High-Performing Team

Every high-performing team is made up of elite individuals. Each person you bring onto your team becomes a building block for the success of the company. So, how can you be sure each member of your team is a high-performer? 

George has spent over 20 years working in the Talent industry and studying unparalleled talent as a Managing Partner at EF Overwatch and The Talent War Group and knows exactly what distinguishes these types of candidates. Drive, resiliency, and integrity are all predictors for success, and Geroge will help you uncover these within your talent pool. 

Plan Your HR Strategy to Win the Talent War

To not only compete but win the never-ending war for talent in the corporate world you must change your mindset and evolve your strategy. From his time serving as a US Army Officer to his 20+ years in Talent, hiring over 80,000 high-performers, George knows how to assess, select, and develop world-class talent. 

Building a company strategy that focuses on PEOPLE as your biggest competitive advantage and adopting a talent mindset are your greatest weapons in winning the war for elite talent. Let George explain how to transform your HR strategy to reach the top of your industry.
