Do you have the ideas, goals and know how to reach them, but you lack good associates?
Be careful to whom and how actually you present own ideas.
Today is the most difficult task to find, attract and retain talented and genuine people. The people with whom we live and work are the key to our success.
Personnel selection and especially business partners and the partners must be done by scientific methods. And no system is perfect, because in the end people elect people.
Very often I have made mistakes in the selection of the people who were doing business. I was many time in the situation to decide fast, but in 90% it was very expensive cost because I elected unsuitable person. The first impression of the candidate guided my decion.
Professional speakers and trainers have long asserted that people make up their minds about people they meet for the first time within two minutes. Others assert that these first impressions about people take only thirty seconds to make.
As it turns out, both may be underestimates. According to Malcolm Gladwell, in Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking (compare prices), the decisions may occur much faster – think instantaneously or in two seconds. His findings have serious implications for organizations.
There are different methods of selection and a number of techniques that assist managers in predicting which of the candidates will be successful in meeting the demands of work. Reliance on only one of them would be wrong.
There are three sets of criteria in the selection process which must be satisfied:
1. criteria that satisfy selection methods
2. criteria that a candidate must satisfy the
3. criteria that organizations must meet.
We should not be afraid of the goals and deadlines. They work for you if you respect the procedure for the candidate selection. Projects and ideas are easy to implement when you invest time in selecting employees, partners and managers.
Do not rush with representing your ideas. Silent about them, explore, examine, spend enough time in the candidate selection. If you happen to have skipped a phase know that you are very likely “cast pearls in front of swine”.
Have you had these problems?
