Why It's So Difficult To Hire Great People

Why It's So Difficult To Hire Great People | Personal Branding Using Scoopit | Scoop.it
I believe I do some good work from time to time, but the one part of my job that I can't afford to not get right is the hiring part.I've been reading Thinking Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman on a recommendation from my friend and fellow neo-stoic-philosopher Jarrod Swart. The most interesting part of the book for me is the idea of substitution.Some questions are really hard, so our brains substitute an easier question that should approximate an answer that will be close enough.

Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Great question asked by my friend and Curagami co-founder Phil Buckley. I shared a comment about being interviewed with behavioral techniques - possibly the most effective interview I ever experienced.

Life Without Fear...Possible? Phil Says YES!

Life Without Fear...Possible? Phil Says YES! | Personal Branding Using Scoopit | Scoop.it

This is a great post from my http://www.crowdfunde.com co-founder Phil Buckley. He asks a great question, "Imagine if you could get control of the part of your brain that throws the switch on fear."

Think about that for a moment. Life without fear. Phil points out that much of what creates fear makes non sense at all. When we live in the moment and experience life, even at its roller-coaster-like pace and furry, we aren't naturally fearful.

We embrace, take on and commitment.

We get in trouble the more we THINK, add in the expectations of others, also called SHAME as Phil points out, and give up our natural power to baseless fear. Phil shares interesting insight into the company we are creating and the journey we are on. Are you on such a journey too? Share it and we will curate into CrowdFunde.

What are your fears?
