After watching thousands of hiring selections over the years, smart organizations have a clear system. First, they utilize a resource or multiple resources to develop a small pool of applicants technically capable of successful execution. For many companies this is where the process ends, but not for the brilliant managers that understand top talent. Top people managers evaluate the intangibles in the interview process. They don’t just come to the interview trying to assess a personality fit. Those leaders look for personality fit but they also know that evaluating an interviewee’s ability to critically think and utilize good judgement are essential to the selection process! Those two skills may even be the most important.
