What to look for in new recruits


Pen and paper in hand?

Here are the criteria for recruiting new people into your organisation at every position:

  1. hungry

  2. blank sheets

  3. with a history of achievement outside of their education/career

Hungry – I’m attracted to people who are on quests – determined to see the world and be seen by the world.

Blank sheets – I don’t want people who have been trained in the ways of some other Jedi.

History of achievement – I’m looking for people who have volunteered, people who have learned skills outside of the job, people who are making a difference in their tribe.

They are needles in a haystack – that’s for sure but the searching and the waiting are always worth it.

If you settle for less, you will get less.
