Selecting Top Talent

“If we get the right people on the bus, the right people in the right seats and the wrong people off the bus, then we’ll figure out how to take it someplace great.”

Jim Collins,
From Good to Great

One of the most difficult responsibilities of leadership is to objectively and accurately assess executive and management talent and place the right people in the right positions in organizations.  Research has shown that misplacement of people leads to costly failure and that happens as often as half the time in organizations.

What’s Missing

Not surprisingly, rather than lacking technical or functional knowledge, experience and/or skill, the main problem typically revolves around issues such as:

  • Communication Skills
  • Fit with the culture
  • Relationship and/or team building skills
  • Leadership skills
  • Flexibility
  • Emotional Intelligence
  • Vision
  • Some mysterious thing we call “bad chemistry”

The Steps We Use to Hiring Success:

  • Defining the success factors of each position
  • In-depth interviews
  • Battery of self-assessment questionnaires
  • Detailed Assessment Report
