More wisdom from the Walter Isaacson book on Steve Jobs, this time a quote from U2's Bono to Steve Jobs - after Jobs was freaking out when Palm was hiring some talent away from Apple.
After hearing Jobs complain about the talent poaching, Bono sent Jobs the following note back (page 460):
"You should chill out about this. This is like the Beatles ringing up because Herman and the Hermites have taken one of their road crew"
Classic. Stop bitching about the fact employees are being taken from you and figure out why they want to go.
Who knew Bono had the DNA of a Talent Pro? What's next? The Edge riffing on performance management stratiegies?
