When job candidates go through the interview process, and even in the first stage of their employment, it can be really hard to tell if they're going to ultimately help or hinder your business. The very people who seem to be dream team employees in the beginning sometimes turn out to bust your serenity, based on their personality alone. Keeping these types of people in your employ can wreak havoc on your business, destroy morale, and make you feel insane.


Therefore, it's important to know and spot the subtle signs of a "serenity busting employee" as soon as possible. In this talk, Melody Stevens, a 20 year veteran employer, discusses the most common types of serenity buster in business and what to look out for in the interview process.


Melody Stevens says that the best teachers in business (and life) are the ones who have made the most colossal mistakes, and have lived to tell about them. A 17-year NJ music and dance studio owner, NYC preschool owner, singer, consultant, mother, wife, and homeowner, Melody has received an incredible business and life education and is here to share. Melody is also a contributing author for the Huffington Post, and author of Become a Time Millionaire.
