If you’re in a position of leadership, you often wonder about certain questions.
How’s the company doing? Are we going in the right direction? What difference are we making in the world?
But there’s another question that weighs heavy on the hearts of leaders…
Who should I hire? What traits should a prospective employee have?
The question is never an easy one to answer. Every position requires a different set of skills.
One position may require knowledge of computer coding. Another may require the employee to know how to effectively manage a core team. Still another may require exquisite customer service skills.
It may seem overwhelming searching for someone with the right skill set. And it can be.
And yet the skill set is not the most important thing a prospective employee must have.
