Format: Audio (MP3)
Discover the hiring secrets for building a strong, powerful, profitable team … one person at a time!
Almost everyone involved in the hiring process understands why it is so critical to find the very best candidate for a particular job. But few understand how to do it. People base hiring decisions on gut reaction or on a largely irrelevant set of criteria. All too often, the resulting employee is ineffectual, unmotivated, or simply not a good fit with the job they were hired to do — which can damage morale, team performance, and ultimately profits for years to come.
In Talent Rules, veteran headhunter and renowned hiring expert Lou Adler lays out a step-by-step system that will empower you to hire the right person every time. Lou’s proven methods — which include detailed interview and assessment checklists and specific benchmarks — will enable you to evaluate a candidate based on measurable performance objectives, rather than your own impulses, and make consistently sound hiring decisions that result in a strong, cohesive team that operates at optimum levels.
