How success profiling can help you make better hiring decisions

Any manager who has ever hired someone who didn’t end up performing as well as expected – or perhaps was a complete disaster – knows that recruitment selection can be an inexact science.

She didn’t share the values, nor did she feel challenged in her role. Yet when she was hired, she had the perfect resume, interviewed well and what she said seemed to point to the fact that she wanted to work for the organisation.

A manager delivers on a major project, but most of the team quits within a year.

I’m sure we’ve all seen people who clearly have exceptional leadership strengths, yet are ill-suited to the situation they are in.
