Brain circuits

Are you taking the wrong approach to recruiting?

There is a mistake you might be making when recruiting leadership within your company. Often, companies search far and wide for the right people – even when those candidates are sitting right in front of them.

The exercise

Take a look at the people on your team, especially those at lower levels. Now ask yourself what potential you think they have which you may not have seen. It sounds simple, but sometimes when employees are successful in roles where they demonstrate the appropriate skills and knowledge it blinds others to their potential, especially if they are not the type of person to seek the limelight. Therefore, it is important to really get to know your employees, especially those who seem to prefer to stay in the background. Also, never assume that you have seen all there is to see about another person.

Embrace the risk
