Does your job depend on making great hires ?
Some years ago we found an outstanding candidate for a C suite position at a leading communications company. This person had an outstanding record of success, had aligned values and was in every respect a perfect fit with their open culture.
Unfortunately, she got a tad nervous with a one on one with the alpha male CEO and was perceived as not being strong enough for the position.
An emotional decision to reject her was based on that one interview.
Today she is the CEO at a competing company, an industry leader and nightmare competitor.
All great recruiters and hiring managers MUST to do (at least) three things:
1. They must learn to control their own biases and the biases of their clients during the interview.
2. Focus on superior performance and potential.
3. Understand candidate motivation, needs and ultimate ambitions.
