Hire Personable Copycats.
Top companies attract top people. One of the ways that happens is by hiring for personality and the new hire’s ability to emulate proper behaviors. Before you hire the next person, do two things: strip away all the past accomplishments and accolades and ask, will we like working with them? Then put some tasks together that ask them to emulate a behavior. Hire people you like and make sure they can emulate the behaviors you want in your best employees. That’s how you attract top people.
