A few weeks ago, I had lunch with the CEO of a technology company. During our conversation, he shared with me his challenges around hiring the right sales people for his organization. You see, his business requires some very specific experience that isn’t easy to find. He told me that he had placed these jobs with headhunters and was still unable to find the right people.
Here’s the funny thing, he knew exactly who he wanted to hire and these people all knew him. By the end of lunch, I convinced him to go out get these people. And you know what? He actually did. Today I received the news that he had hired 3 sales people, by simply deciding who he wanted and “going out and getting them.”
This is how you get results people. You work with an expert who can swiftly guide you and then you go into action.
I’ll be revealing more about this CEO in my forthcoming book, The Magnetic Workplace: How to Attract Top Talent That Will Stick Around. But if you can’t wait, give me a call and I’ll be glad to answer your questions and help you put a plan into place so you can do the same.
