NOTE: DUE TO A TECHNICAL GLITCH, THE INTRO MUSIC IS MISSING AND THE INTERVIEW DOESN'T START TILL APPROX. 42 SECONDS INTO THE SHOW. BUT IT'S WORTH THE BRIEF WAIT TO HEAR THE INFORMATION MARK SHARES ABOUT HIRING THE RIGHT EMPLOYEES.
Howard Lewinter welcomes Mark Murphy, author of the book, Hiring For Attitude: A Revolutionary Approach To Recruiting Star Performers With Both Tremendous Skills And Superb Attitude.
Most CEOs, presidents and business owners, as well as hiring managers, are getting it wrong when it comes to identifying and hiring the best candidates - even in this uncertain economy. Skills are important, but a particular skill set is about the easiest thing to test in an interview. Although much harder to recognize, attitude should be your number-one focus during the hiring process. Don't suffer the consequences from poor chemistry - all it takes is one employee with the wrong attitude to cause years of unnecessary challenges in your organization.
Mark Murphy is the founder and CEO of Leadership IQ, a top-rated provider cutting-edge research and leadership training.
It's good to talk.
