Hiring The Right Candidate Is Essential To The Success Of Your Business
Find the right candidate
Technical ability doesn’t equate to cultural fit or teachability, but you can’t know that just from surface level interviews.
Avoid the wrong candidate
Hiring the wrong candidate can be a nightmare. Everyone plays up their ability during interviews and it can be difficult to find transparency.
More than just a resume
Hiring someone can’t just be about the technical skills they have today. It’s important, yet difficult, to create a process that finds the qualities you want and are a fit for your company.

When I took over the Asian Operations in Shanghai, China I soon recognized I needed to build a stronger management team. I knew with Rick’s background in international business, he would be the logical choice to help make this happen. Rick’s concepts of management and leadership development and his understanding of the cultural differences in play within an international organization have proven valuable whenever I need to make decisions that have a major impact on my organization.
Rick has been in my corner now for almost a decade. I consider him to be a key element in my resource arsenal. Beyond his phenomenal depth of understanding of the psychological tools and instruments, it is his ability to put things into the business context that makes him such a valuable go-to resource for me.
T.B. -Director of Talent Management
Rick brings an experienced and objective perspective to strategy and leadership development. He asks the tough questions that you can’t or don’t always want to ask yourself. He then helps develop answers that can bring significant change and a sense of being in better control of the organization’s future.
I have been working with Rick for over 6 years. The most recent 3 years have had a strong focus on coaching for Sales Management development. Through careful analysis and questioning I have been able to take Rick’s suggestions and create a robust strategic sales plan. Not only has the company benefited from the focus we’ve created, but I have personally gained insight into how a good sales organization and process should work. By completely understanding our go-to-market strategy, Rick and I have been able to combine our sales pipeline and our internal operational strategy. This has allowed our entire organization to be more in tune with our goals for growth.

Growth usually takes on one of two very distinct pathways: a linear path and an exponential one. The latter sounds great, right? Just pull a few levers and watch your organization reap the benefits of exponential growth, making all of your dreams come true. Wait till that next quarterly review, you’ll show them you mean business!
Except that isn’t the entire story, and consistent leadership development results are better than exponential growth that isn’t sustainable.
So why talk about exponential growth in the domain of creating better leaders in the workplace? Well, because it never hurts to have something to aspire to. It never hurts to see what can indeed happen when consistent action is scaled out. That’s the key to making leadership development a potent component in today’s fast paced business environment.
What does feedback really mean? We talk about feedback, but we know that not all feedback is created equal. Feedback should begin with empathy, which is truly understanding the other person's perspective. From there, we want to come forward with evidence that backs up the statements we're going to make to that person. Direct, professional, and straightforward is the name of the game here.
Feedback and accountability go hand in hand within the world of strategically assessing leadership strengths and weaknesses.
What Comprehensive Feedback Isn't
Sometimes it's important to highlight what something isn't before we can really start visualizing what it is constructively. If you want to build or even transform current feedback and accountability processes, here's what to avoid most:
Relying on one assessment. There is no perfect assessment, and it's critical to avoid idolizing any assessment as the One True Measure of performance
Keeping resources too narrow. This isn't about trying to use as few resources as possible. Pull out all of the tools and see what's reasonable in terms of the specific leader being refined for greater opportunities (the ultimate goal)
Don't settle for just covering strengths and weaknesses in terms of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). Full insight requires full analysis; KPIs are just a shortcut.
Collecting quantitative data is important, but don’t skip the opportunities to collect qualitative data along the way as well. For example,
Breaking Down Strategic Leadership Assessment - The Best Path Forward for Growth
In order to get the growth needed to stay competitive, it's time to go back to the drawing board. What does strategic leadership assessment look like in action? Well, the important point is that it begins with realizing the end goal: you're getting insight into an individual's makeup and identifying what their true strengths and weaknesses are. We're going back to the 3D Leadership model as one of the key foundational points of this plan.
Staying the Course
Motivation is a big topic in the business world because we're used to watching people quit. Why do people quit before they've reached the finish line? Sometimes it's a matter of not being able to visualize the end. Or perhaps it's not having enough milestones to reflect upon as they move deeper into their journey. Not everyone will finish their leadership development plan, or approach it with enthusiasm.
Reassurance isn't a bad thing, and it can help bolster morale to the point where employees buy back in. For entry-level employees, leadership development can feel impossible because they're starting their journey with a lot to cover. For the more seasoned leader, development often takes a "been there, done that" feeling.
