When searching for the right talent to bring into your organization, it is important to take the time to develop a clear understanding of what type of employees best match your organizational needs, align with your mission and the team they will join.
During the hiring process it’s normal to experience some “hiccups” when it comes to finding the right person for the role you are looking to hire. That is why having an effective interviewing process is the one of the most important things you can have in place when looking to hire great people to strengthen your teams.
Try to think of interviewing like choosing players for a winning sports team – a coach will want to choose players that are not just strong in a particular role, but can also integrate into the team and strengthen his/her other teammates to make winning plays. When it comes down to it, if you want someone who will help your organization win you must take the time to establish a clear vision for who you are looking for and what your team needs from that person.
Silicon Valley talent management expert and Emtrain people skills expert, Steve Cadigan, explains why effective interviewing is the most important skill you can learn in the workplace and capitalizes on the need for a strong interviewing process to guide your decisions on potential candidates.
