Kenneth Børgesen's curator insight, November 2, 2013 6:44 AM

The heroic leader is dead long time ago.  Leadership is already distributed in successful businesses today But it is obviously not that easy for the entrepreneur to let go of something that is one's own "child". However business problems today are too wicked, intertwined and deeply rooted in globality for one person to even begin to understand. So gain control by letting go ...

Bob Corlett's curator insight, August 9, 2013 2:17 PM

Understanding the environment that helped shape a candidate’s success or failure is one of the most important lessons to learn in hiring. So if you’re trying to hire someone, it’s a terrible idea to focus on their successes and assume that they will be equally successful in your environment.

Melissa St Hill's curator insight, August 12, 2013 3:53 AM

Some good information which can be useful when looking to hire - it is not necessarily true that because someone has performed well in a previous role that they will be just as great (or better) in the new role - it is good to look at successes as well as hardships - really identify what made the person perform well - 

 

It has been identified countless times how beneficial it can be to run technical testing or scenarios whilst interviewing candidates to slightly identify how this person can put their talk to action – even get them into the environment they will be working within and see how they react –

 

It is not just about a glowing track record – be sure to look at all the factors that lead to the person’s success.
