The TREC Podcast #5: Gallup Chairman and CEO Jim Clifton

Jul 10, 2018 | TREC News, TRECcast

We get right to the action in this special edition of TRECcast. Our President and CEO Linda McMahon chats with Gallup Chairman and CEO Jim Clifton!

Their conversation took place shortly after Clifton left the stage of our first Bank of Texas Speaker Series event of the year back in January and spans the so-called coming jobs war, on which Clifton has authored a book, what the United States must do to compete with its economic rivals and how to manage Millennials, among other topics.

During Clifton’s 30 years as Gallup’s chief executive officer, the consulting and public opinion research giant has expanded to 30 offices in 20 countries and regions. He is the creator of The Gallup Path, a metrics-based economic model that links human nature to the business world and has been used in performance management systems at more than 500 companies worldwide. Clifton’s latest innovation, the Gallup World Poll, is designed to give the world’s seven billion citizens a voice in virtually all key global issues. He is also the author of Entrepreneurial Strengthsfinder as well as many other articles on global leadership, and his blog appears regularly in the Influencer section of LinkedIn and on’s Chairman’s Blog.
