HR Happy Hour 188 - Live from the NBA Summer League - Featuring The 8 Man Rotation
Recorded Live from Las Vegas, Saturday July 19, 2014
Host: Steve Boese
Guests: Kris Dunn, Lance Haun, Matt 'The Professor' Stollak
This week on a very special HR Happy Hour Show, the guys from The 8 Man Rotation series of Ebooks on Sports and HR made their annual midsummer pilgrimage to Las Vegas to take in a few days of the Samsung NBA Summer League competition, catch a little music courtesy of Soundgarden and Nine Inch Nails, and record a fun HR Happy Hour podcast over a few cheeseburgers.
Steve and the boys talked basketball (of course), but also hit upon many of the angles that apply to non-sports contexts as well, and can be relevant to HR, talent management, and building teams of any kind. The NBA Summer League is one of the great, real-life experiments in talent management and development - you have players trying to learn and acclimate, coaches and on-court officials also trying to prove themselves, and you see played out how team executives talent management strategies manifest in how they try to build their teams.
This was a really fun show, (apologies for the background music and the occasional interruption of the waiters), and many thanks to the guys for participating.
Back to more 'normal' HR content in the next show, we promise!
See you next year at NBA Summer League...

On this day in 1792, the cornerstone was laid for a presidential residence in the newly designated capital city of Washington. Work began on the neoclassical White House building at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue under the guidance of Irish American architect James Hoban. President George Washington chose the site.
In 1800, President John Adams became the first president to reside in the executive mansion, which soon became known as the “White House” because its white-gray Virginia freestone contrasted strikingly with the red brick of nearby buildings.
In 1814, during the War of 1812, British soldiers set the White House on fire along with the U.S. Capitol in retaliation for the burning of government buildings in Canada by U.S. troops. The burned-out building was subsequently rebuilt and enlarged under the direction of James Hoban, who added east and west terraces to the main building, along with a semicircular south portico and a colonnaded north portico. The smoke-stained stone walls were painted white.
The White House is the oldest federal building in the nation’s capital.
