We’re too subjective when it comes to selecting applicants for a job. Do you have objectivity built into your hiring process?
People decisions are too important to make without important information like who they are i.e. their traits, natural motivators and communication style. Without this information, we are gambling with the odds against us and too much at stake.
Why do we expect people to change – after we hire them? Are we being reasonable or realistic?
We want to rely on the information we gather – especially when it comes to experience. There isn’t much to go by except what we read in a resume and answers in the interview. That’s not enough if we don’t really know the person, specifically, their natural motivators.
