When we seek out our interviewees for the back cover of our RecogNation publication, we’re looking for people who can elevate our stories with their own professional experience and their own personal twist. I discovered Roberta Matuson while researching the broad topic of onboarding, and, although she was a complete stranger to me, I took a risk and reached out to her. What luck! She was so willing, gracious, and enthusiastic—and ended up being the ideal contributor to this issue’s topic.
Roberta is known globally as The Talent Maximizer® and is the President of Matuson Consulting. She is also the author of "Talent Magnetism" (Nicholas Brealey, 2013), "Selecting for Success: The Complete Guide to Hiring Top Talent," and "Suddenly in Charge: Managing Up, Managing Down, Succeeding All Around," a Washington Post Top-5 Leadership pick.

Allison is currently living out the elaborate fantasy she described to her now-former staff and colleagues in early 2001. With a hearty dose of courage and absolutely no plan of action, she abruptly left her middle-management job to become a writer—and today she is doing just that in her role as Baudville's Senior Content Writer. She's here to tell you everything she's learned in her 20-years+ professional life, plus a lot more. She's wordy like that!
