If you’ve been around long enough you already know the cost of one bad hire….to your profitability, team morale, your brand, and your own personal stress levels.
But what I want you to think about is the cost, over your entire career, of not being an exceptional interviewer…. being someone that is susceptible to frequent hiring mistakes.
As we say all the time on this show, you run a people driven business. Your ability to objectively analyze someone’s previous behavior, and predict their future performance with a high degree of accuracy is one of the deadliest skills you can have as an entrepreneur.
Your growth potential is directly related to how well you can team build, and interviewing is arguably the most crucial step in the whole process.
Understanding a candidate – not just in terms of what is on their resume, but their deep rooted wiring, personality style, strengths, weaknesses, core values, and their wants and needs for the future – allows you to be an extremely precise decision maker when it comes to personnel.
This is why we are very excited to be joined by James Alisch – Managing Director of 1-800-GOT-JUNK: the world’s largest junk removal service.
James is at the helm of a brand doing 490 million dollars a year in revenue, and is executing a multi year strategy to exceed 1B by 2025. Over the course of his extensive career, James has done literally thousands of interviews to build power house teams. He knows interviewing inside and out, and we’re thrilled to have him on to share his wisdom and insight on the topic with you.
