I know. Drake? Has it really come to that? I’m writing about Drake on an HR blog?
What I’ve noticed is that whatever world you’re in, you use the other worlds to connect. Music stars want to be athletes. Athletes want to be rappers and movie stars. Everyone once in a while, you’ll see an entertainer dip down in the world of work to connect. Not often, but it happens.
And so it goes with the video to Drake’s 2013 hit, “Started From the Bottom”. You could run a class about high potential employees by watching it. In fact, here’s the top 9 things I see related to HiPos out of this video. See the list below and the video cued up to the clip in question, then commentary below each clip, Drizzy-style. (email subscribers click through to see the videos. NOTE: This is the clean version of the video, but if you’re easily offended, this post might not be for you)
