HIRE BETTER, GO BIGGER

If elite talent is a multiplier on your career, mis-hires will absolutely kill your career momentum.

You know you have a problem when. . .

  • You’re called into meetings with senior leadership, having to answer hard questions (again) why you have unoccupied or underutilized territories, or your team has failed to hit your deliverables by 20% or more.
  • You’re frustrated with your team of ‘yes-men’ or ‘yes women’ who are good on paper, but you want people who move beyond tactical execution and bring suggestions about outcomes and benefits to the table.
  • You’re just sick and tired of baby-sitting grown adults who should be able to make their own decision and do the job they were hired to do.

If you don’t have a team that will take you and your business to the next-level…

If you don’t have team members who are knocking the cover off the ball consistently…

If you don’t have high performers making you look like the ultimate coach…

ITS NOT YOUR FAULT


“JUST DO WHAT I ASK AND DON’T ASK QUESTIONS!”

BUILDING GREAT TEAMS

Take a peek inside any airport bookstore and you will see shelves of books on leadership, mentorship, and the importance of building great teams…

But few on hiring.

Which is why most business leaders just pass the responsibility to Human Resources…

“Just let them send me some resumes, and I’ll pick the best of what they send me” 
(Not a recipe for hiring the top 10%)

Take ownership of your hiring process.

Its not your fault.

But it’s still your responsibility.
