Executive Coaching

That may sound a little harsh, but energetic people will find a spot in an organization that fits well for them, but for you— make sure you have “all-stars” on your team. It’s the only way to be successful in today’s world.


So, if you are in a position to hire, this is a great time for you. You have the opportunity to hire the best applicants looking for work. (Your present employees should have these qualities, too.)


FIVE CHARACTERISTICS TO LOOK FOR IN A TEAM MEMBER


  1.  SOMEONE WITH A SOLID SKILLSET FOR THEIR JOB

How does this person stack up compared to other people who are applying for this position. You want someone who is so strong in their skillset that they can teach you.


  1. SOMEONE WITH PASSION FOR WHAT THEY DO

People have been waiting to get back to doing something meaningful. This means they may have a real passion to do the work that is open at your establishment.


  1.  SOMEONE EFFICIENT AT HANDLING TIME

You will want to make sure that they are good at time management, since much of what needs to be done will be done in a world with fewer people working at any particular organization.


  1.  SOMEONE WITH AN ABILITY TO DO MANY THINGS

Multi-tasking is also important. A person will not just do one thing, but many.


  1.  SOMEONE WILLING TO LEARN

Life long learners are important, too. Be sure that your folks are ready to learn more than may be necessary in your field.


This is your opportunity to hire “all-stars” for your team. Make sure they are “A players” and will have the ability to elevate your organization to its next level.
