Hiring the right employee is the single most important thing for a manager to get right.
But the hiring process gives us very little information to make such an important commitment. Plus managers do hiring relatively infrequently and so don't get to practice this important skill.
The combination of difficulty, importance and lack of practice creates the conditions for a perfect storm. And hiring the wrong person is very a costly and time consuming mistake. On the other hand hiring the right person can make a world of difference.
That's why I've made the www.boss.camp program. It shows the everyday manager like you and me what they didn't teach you in school about managing employees, including how to hire the best person for the job.
