Awesome Tip: The #1 Reason to Fire Your #1 | LinkedIn TalentConnect Keynote

Company culture is the most important metric when it comes to the business’s overall performance. Even one toxic employee can bring down the efficiency of the entire company and can go unscathed because they are a “top-performing employee”. The truth is that “top performer” is actually a hidden cost and while it may appear that they are doing better than the others, it’s really because their toxicity is bringing down everyone else’s performance and if that toxic employee was let go everyone else would be happier and more efficient. Make employee morale the #1 priority of your business and the profits will follow.

  2. Wow! Gary, so impressed you threw down to a corporate crowd. As someone who worked mostly in the corporate world and still navigates it today, their framework is exactly as you say for the far majority: decisions are mostly made based on short term financial metrics and within organizations narcissism: me and fast. That's the majority.

  3. Good stuff Gary. Glad to hear the push for empowering people over profit. If you empower the right people with long term vision, it will lead to more profit than if the sole focus is profitability in the short term.

  4. Let's be frank, though Gary. America is not travelling so well either. The Soviet experiment failed but the laissez-faire is failing, perhaps more spectacularly.

  5. Been on a GaryVee rampage lately. Created some fresh social media accounts to follow Gary's advice.
    Anyone else starting from scratch and feeling strange creating content when you have 0 followers?
    I'm literally shooting & editing my first video right now. Anyone else in the same boat?

  6. Sir, I salute you your advocacy of teaching and motivating people. I’d like to ask advise on how can I narrow down my niche. I’d like to monetize my video content but I’m afraid they are to impossible to happen.

  7. hey Gary, I kind of don't agree with you on people learning not to value anonymous reviews. Sadly, most people WILL take an anonymous review into account if it's convincingly written – IMO.

  8. This is the first content I've heard from Gary about people within companies. I felt that it is really hard to be black and white about it. I also felt that Gary's having a hard time giving his point without the curses. Thanks Gary!

  9. I have friends on LinkedIn with very interesting content, who have 500+ connections and their articles get maybe 3 likes. How Is LinkedIn the place to go viral? This is Bullshit. I think Gary Is Brilliant and knows a lot, but calling LinkedIn the number one place to get your shit checked out? No, it's not.
