Consider ‘soft’ skills when hiring

by on
in Best-Practices Leadership,Hiring,Human Resources,Leaders & Managers

Leaders can answer many questions quickly: What is your leadership strategy? What is your vision for the organization?

But few leaders can accurately answer this fundamental question: “What kinds of people am I looking for?”

Too many leaders base hiring decisions on education and credentials alone. They fail to consider “softer” questions, such as:
  • Is the candidate a visionary?

  • Does the applicant think in a conceptual way?

  • Can the person communicate well?

  • Does he or she have a proven track record of getting things done?
