90% of Business Problems Stem from Recruiting
One out of every two new hires fail. Make the choice of either putting the work in on the front end of hiring, or on the back end of constant follow up and getting results. If you are a leader willing to be challenged by members of the team, you need to fill the hiring pipeline with rockstars. When leaders hire rockstars, they are hiring people who love to be challenged, and consequently they may challenge you. Rockstar leaders don’t shy away from being shaken out of their comfort zone. They welcome the new ideas, creative thoughts and work an “A” player brings. Ping pong tables and Friday cookouts aren’t inspiring or motivational to a rockstar. Just give them a good challenge. There is no question that an assortment of talent is required to be successful, yet when the leader focuses on having a pipeline of “A” players, they will have a resource of rockstars ready to fill a key slot when the opening occurs. Or better yet, be willing to make room for rockstars to join your team. Jeff Hyman knows a lot about hiring the best talent. This podcast will provide insight for adding more rockstars at your company.
