IF YOU DO ONLY ONE THING RIGHT

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

What is it the most important of all the management tasks? What is the one skill that we usually spend the least amount of time improving? (hum the Jeopardy song)……the answer is Great Hiring.

You know this is the biggie. The one that matters most of all. The one that either gives you a true advantage over your competitors or dooms you to mediocrity – and worse. Why isn’t every manager reading, asking, discussing, debating and challenging the mostly inferior way we hire? Why don't you decide to DO something?

It’s ugly out there in the land of great recruitment. And yes, it’s difficult to hire well. But it is the foundation of all success. I hope you don’t see yourself in this list below, but if you do, then it’s time to fess up and make a decision to do it differently. Immediately. Forever. Be brave - do you:


Use the same tired & vague recruitment ads over and over?


Write job descriptions that are masterpieces? (you can)

Conduct interviews with as much preparation that goes into your best business presentations?

Spend a lot of time with your finalist candidates? At least 10 hours?

Talk to five references using a written list of questions?

The next few blogs will offer strategies for great hiring.

Try this: focus on a current opening. Write a terrific job description that spells out in detail how the employee will spend 40+ hours every week. It’s fine to include the big concepts, but if you can’t “see” what the person will do from the description, then how will you OR the employee what is to be done?
When the masterpiece is finished, pass it around the office and ask for brutal feedback. Here’s the test it should pass: if you show the job description to your grandma would she understand this position?
