Hiring – Focus on Fit, not Expertise

Organizations are who they hire. Whether an organization succeeds, or even survives, ultimately comes down to the talent and culture fit of the people who work there. Acquiring and retaining talent has momentous consequences, and thoughtful consideration should be given to the philosophy and framework for how new talent is brought into the organization. In many organizations, experience and expertise are considered the most important things to focus on when hiring. However, when these qualities are the main focus, poor decisions about who to hire are often made.

Drawing from his book, The Ordinary Leader: 10 Key Insights for Building and Leading a Thriving Organization, Randy will share what he’s learned from his own leadership journey. This presentation will explore why aptitude and fit are more important than experience and expertise, and you will be challenged to think critically about your own approach to hiring.
