Two Business WomenYou run a business or a project and your HR or advisory people want to give you people you know will fail, something in your ‘gut’ says so… So what is that gut feeling and just how do you find people that will get results in the role you have to fill? Try these pointers;

Selecting people that get results

An Attitude of gratitude – They have it, they might not say it but you can see and feel it, if you include them on a project you know they are seriously pleased to be there and take part, if not you might want to ditch them fast.

Ability to visualise РThey see the bigger picture, they see the smaller picture too, in fact they see the whole movie right through to standing ovation… Not only do they star in the picture they direct is as well

They work smart, not hard – Do it, delegate it or drop it. If someone else can do it smarter than they can let them do it

They take responsibility – They will own up to an issue if they caused it, ethics are high on their value list

Great at time management РEmails get dealt with after the first hour, meetings, only if they are of value and the agenda is clear and achievable 

Clear head, clear planning – To do list written at the end of the day for instance cal ears a results focused peoples heads, they sleep better and when they get to the office, they can then tackle what needs to be done.

Brilliant at customer service – They can elegantly handle ‘nay sayers’ and are kept grounded in reality by those who scam, spam and complain. With internal customers, they service them well, they manage by wandering around, ask questions, delve into the real issues facing the troops, in short they are on the ball finding all the little things that make the big things matter

They can focus – They can see what needs to be done and can do it or get someone to do it. They can focus on major goals

They can lead – They can plan, delegate and make people feel fantastic that they can serve the leader, because they feel like a leader themselves

They have a system for passion – Most people say they are passionate about something these guys have a system to get and keep the passion going

They know their strengths – We are all good at some things, these guys know specifically what that is and how to use it to their advantage, the rest they delegate to people with the right skills

They have the skills and abilities for the job – They know their subject inside and out, they know the latest trends for that subject. They are then able to use that knowledge too

Respect, it’s their middle name – It doesn’t take much effort most of the time to have respect for everyone they come in contact with. It goes a long way to having people onside and keeps them happy

These pointers could create some interesting questions for interview and or review… Go looking for the type of person you want and see what shows up in their Linked in profile or facebook posts.
