This is interesting - not all of it new but still worth a look.  I think the idea of the other team members being able to interview candidates quite intriguing.  Still got to love the strengths based approach to working with teams!

Saadia Asif's curator insight, August 25, 12:54 PM

Some may argue that they can get along without it but they operate under a false perception. Just because employees are performing at a certain level of productivity - that level is likely to be much higher when they are engaged.
