Re-Introducing Character into the Hiring Process

Re-Introducing Character into the Hiring Process | MGT 307 | Scoop.it

Warren Buffet once relayed the wisdom of another business leader that when looking to hire, managers should look for three qualities: integrity, intelligence and energy, and that if the first one isn’t present, the other two will kill you.

 

The current business climate has never been tougher on senior managers. Based on executive turnover statistics, many managers do not seem up to the task.  Perhaps organizations are too impatient, they cannot attract sufficient talent etc. Or, there is another reason.  The hiring process is ignoring a fundamental tenet of effective management — character.  You don’t need to go far (Dennis Kozlowski of Tyco and Jeffrey Skilling of Enron quickly come to mind) to find examples of how character deficit has seriously harmed a company.

For Entrepreneurs, This is The Mother of All 'Managing Up' Skills | MGT 307 | Scoop.it

Whether you are CEO of a new start-up, an emerging growth company or one about to go public, it is essential to master the care and feeding of your board. For an entrepreneur, it is the mother of all managing up techniques.

 

Remember the following:


Be totally open with directors. But remember they are not your friend.


 

Venture-backed companies usually have several investors on their board. These folks bring loads of experience from the many boards they have served over the years.
