Make Sure New Hires Have the Right Mind Set

TheFunded.com Advice

Posted by MedTech Expert on 2008-01-07

Tags: Operations Hiring

PUBLIC:

Those that have a "growth" mind-set and keep learning, even if it means failing at first, provide the fuel for building a successful company. Those who have a "fixed" mind-set and avoid any prospect of failure will insure failure.

Hiring for talent may provide you with bright employees but may also lead to employees who do not take chances and cannot accept constructive criticism or setbacks.

Ask job applicants (and this applies to board members and advisors) how they feel about being involved with something that has a high probability of failure. While you may not believe this and you certainly are not selling this, answers to this question will speak volumes about the person in question and whether or not they are a fit.

Hire for both talent and mind-set.
