Dominski has finished in the money 5 times out of 7 in World Series of Poker tournaments

How does a world class, semi-pro poker player also excel as a Human Resources executive?  The obvious answer: he’s gifted at reading people. With Paul Dominski, he also likes world-class pressure.

Paul Dominski is the new Senior Vice President of US Human Resources for Best Buy. He is betting on his track record of building strong service cultures in healthcare and retail.  Given all the buzz about the struggling electronics retailer, it’s reasonable to ask: “Why would you make that move?”

Dominski was raised by hard-working parents in Detroit, Michigan.  His dad carried a lunch pail to work for General Motors as a UAW craftsman, while mom worked at the jewelry counter at Sears.  “I’m very competitive and I really enjoy taking on new challenges,” he explained.  “But looking back I have always been driven by my own need to make my parents proud.”

Paul's family: Jake, Darian and Rayba, on vacation in Italy

Today, he is raising his own family in the Western Suburbs of Minneapolis/St. Paul.  That’s not easy with two working parents — both who work as executives for famous Minnesota retailers.  “I’ve learned from my parents the value of building a strong family as the foundation for helping kids succeed — I’m happy to share how Rayba and I make that work in our family.”

Please accept my invitation to see for yourself why his parents should be proud: Paul Dominski is the speaker at the Fall 2012 kickoff of the Good Leadership Breakfast Series: Friday, August 17, 2012. His topic: If you want to go far, go together: my journey from Detroit to Best Buy.

Good leaders make a habit out of leading by example for their own children. And they listen to their hearts when it’s time to move on to world-class challenges.

Drop me a note: what would you like me to ask Paul Dominski in the Q & A this Friday at the Good Leadership Breakfast?[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
