Pen and paper in hand?
Here are the criteria for recruiting new people into your organisation at every position:
- blank sheets
- with a history of achievement outside of their education/career
Hungry – I’m attracted to people who are on quests – determined to see the world and be seen by the world.
Blank sheets – I don’t want people who have been trained in the ways of some other Jedi.
History of achievement – I’m looking for people who have volunteered, people who have learned skills outside of the job, people who are making a difference in their tribe.
They are needles in a haystack – that’s for sure but the searching and the waiting are always worth it.
If you settle for less, you will get less.

Attitude. That’s the key. Along with any legally required qualifications of course.
Edd – Attitude is but one of the traits that we would want to identify – we analyse 35-45.
Chris – People perform well when they enjoy what they are doing, when the role meets their personal traits and expectations. Our unique, award-winning and customisable work-preference tools enable an individual to be hired when they best fit your requirements, be developed in line with their traits, behaviours and expectations, and allow team leaders to understand when and why a team is underperforming.

Can’t agree more regarding the importance of attitudes – and of the right one to fit with your business. Although, on blank sheets, I have an applicant who has been well and truly trained by some chap called Ashley Latter. I am guessing that if said jedi is not from the dark side I am probably safe to view this particular previous training as a positive…;-)
