Let’s say your business is growing and your staff needs more attention and development than you can provide. Now would probably be a good time to hire a new manager – but how? Here are my insights:
What you’ll learn from this episode:
- Before anything else, verbalize why you need a manager.
- Consider what the responsibilities of this role will be and how you’ll measure that person’s success.
- Think about what skills and behaviors you need in the candidates you attract.
- Create a selection process that’s designed to help your candidates reveal these skills and behaviors to you in the interview.
a. They should be questions, not statements.
b. They should be focused on behaviors and assessing past outcomes – not based on hypotheticals. It’s called Behavioral Interviewing.
- Always be interviewing. Always have someone on deck even if you don’t currently have a job opening.
