Imagine...what could you accomplish with a team of A Players?
Rick Crossland is an internationally-known expert and thought leader on A Player talent. His innovative approach to developing and validating high performers - A Players – has been published in leading business sites such as Inc.com, Entrepreneur.com and Fortune.com, where Rick contributes articles as a Fortune Insider - a network where the most thoughtful and influential people in the entrepreneurial scene answer questions about business and careers.
Rick genuinely walks the talk when it comes to being an A Player. He has almost 30 years of experience developing, recruiting and leading high performers, and developing high performing cultures at companies. Before founding his successful executive coaching, leadership and talent development company eight years ago, Rick worked at Johnson and Johnson, ICI-Zeneca, Planters-Lifesavers, Ford Motor Company and Limited Brands.

Rick is author of the book, The A Player. He works with organizations across the country to transform good companies into great companies with his unique A Player approach.
In today’s conversation with us, Rick defines an A Player – who they are and what they look for in an organization. We then explore the problem with settling for B and C Players, why more companies don’t have A Player teams, and how you can find, attract and develop a team of 100% A Players who are congruent, committed, and will help you transform your company from good to great.
