In this episode:
  • The best attitude, behavior, and technique on how to succeed at recruiting great salespeople
  • The process is different depending on the level of hire
  • Be careful to hire the right person and personality for the job, not just someone you like
  • You may want to use a third party to help
  • Focus on their past performance
  • Keep it simple, don’t track too many metrics
  • Both sides should be excited about the new adventure together upon hiring
  • Slow the process down so you can focus on getting the right people
  • No more than 2 decision-makers on the hire
  • If you’re in a leadership time spend 1/3rd of your time recruiting and hiring world-class talent
  • Create a hiring profile
  • Hire on talent, train for diagnostics
