Productivity trainer Garrett Miller shows you how to hire great employees by finding candidates with four must-have qualities that have little to do with skill and lots to do with their upbringing, background and attitude. The book’s writing style uses almost entirely imagined conversations between a hiring manager and his guru, but Miller’s practical advice about interviewing questions and techniques provides excellent guidance. getAbstract recommends Miller’s notions mainly to managers hiring young workers, but job-hunters can also learn important lessons.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why your new hires should show a “work ethic, humility, integrity and maturity” – the unteachable “WHIM” qualities,
- Why this assessment is critical to excellent hiring and
- How to find candidates who possess these character traits.
