Mediocre Talent Hires Mediocre Talent
Do you have your A-players up front representing the company and leading the hiring process?
If no, you losing the Talent War.
A-players select A-players. B-Players select C-Players.
This is a critical component of the Special Operations assessment and selection process.
They select their very best to select the next generation of young leaders in the organization.
A-players have the ability to check their egos and give credit where it is due.
They can look at a young candidate and recognize that candidate could have more potential then they do.
Additionally, when prospective employees see A-players representing the company, leaders they admire and strive to be like, then you create a talent magnet.
If you put B and C-players in charge of hiring don’t be surprised by the result. They select out of fear of being outshined or losing their job. If B-player can’t even do the job well, how do they know what to look for in potential candidates?
