The Daily PPILL #7 — The Chosen Ones

How do you build the best team you can put together?

May be obvious but I’ll say that recruitment has to happen intentionally and not necessarily based on the resumé.

Sure, skills are important, and the conditions to keep people when they show up have to be there. But I would argue that more important than that, is to share a strong vision. A vision that prospective employees can get inspired by and follow us on our journey. Throughout my career, I have always felt more moved by a resonating vision of the future than by compensation or any other perks.

Here is a process to develop an effective vision: first, it has to be authentic. This way, it will attract team players who will share your goals, and there is no use in attracting people who share the wrong goal, Right?

Second, has to be as simple as possible, but also very vivid. Whoever listens to our story should be able to “get it” immediately, but also “feel it”.

Finally, it still has to be achievable. A vision works better when is scaled appropriately to be inspirational, but yet attainable with some effort. I would look for “wow”, not “no way”.

Once we have their attention, I would check for attitude, then aptitude. Do you agree?
