Hiring for Attitude: Target Those That Are A Pleasure To Manage

November 17

Learn how you can supplement your current hiring process with a focus on identifying future work behaviors.

It’s a fact that some of your new hires will end up being “a pleasure to manage.” While many others will take up an inordinate amount of the manager’s time and concern because of their attitude. Hiring those with the wrong attitude will burden the manager for years because they will continually create problems and require constant watching and direction. However, if you focus on “hiring for attitude” you will end up with employees that are self-motivated and self-starters that won’t bombard you with unnecessary questions or issues. Because they are easy to manage, these new hires will free up a manager’s time so that they can focus on more strategic issues. In this fast-paced and stimulating course, the speaker will demonstrate how you can supplement your current hiring process with a focus on identifying the future work behaviors that will be exhibited by employees with an attitude that respects the manager’s time.

Having employees that are not a burden is even more important today because a manager’s time is severely limited in a work-world dominated by remote work, pivots, and budget cuts. Our speakers calls them “a pleasure to manage” employees, while others have called them self-motivated, self-managing, or low maintenance employees. Some of the “a pleasure to manage” attitude components you should be looking for in candidates include self-directed learning, forward-looking and collaborators. As well as those that will lighten a manager’s workload by accepting the ownership of problems and removing them from a manager’s plate. If you are an experienced manager, the odds are that you have had only a handful of them during your career. And because they made your life easier, as a manager, for years, they have become unforgettable employees (odds are that you can instantly remember their names). We are excited that Dr. John Sullivan, well-known global recruiting thought leader and “the Michael Jordan of hiring,” has agreed to lead this highly interactive topic.
