Is it Easier to Prevent or Fix Hiring Problems?
What would you rather do, prevent or fix hiring problems? Building a top-notch team requires being deliberate and persistent, and following a process to uncover the desired talent reaps the best rewards. Are you following a proven procedure or do you find yourself winging it? Studies show that managers devote, on average, 20 seconds in preparation of interviewing job candidates. That’s abysmal! Finding warm bodies to occupy available seats does not build a productive, successful team, and it won’t contribute to your success as a leader either. Great leaders have a history of building and managing highly productive teams, and they tend to do it wherever they go. Don’t hire anyone who is available, hire someone that brings every possible criterion for success with them. Start now to perfect your process by using the five pointers covered in this podcast.
