Hire character. Train Skill.

Screen Shot 2014-02-09 at 3.23.07 PMI recently saw this on LinkedIn and had to comment. This is the way that I have always looked at hiring new people even though many of my colleagues have frowned on my approach. I meet people, talk to them about their hobbies and various other non work related things and try to develop an overall opinion.

I ask myself “Would I want to work with this person? Do they have a can do attitude? Are they fun? Do they live life?”

If the answer to the questions is generally “Yes”, that is a good sign that they will be a good fit in your organization.

A winning team can accomplish anything! The flip side of that statement is also true. A dysfunctional team can have the best product in the world and loose everything.

Life is short, work somewhere fun…
