REDUCE ERROR RATE IN SELECTION DECISIONS
Every employee we appoint should be more qualified and more talented than the one they replaced, but we are notoriously bad at picking people. In fact, it’s unlikely that even 2 out of 10 hires in your business will ever achieve world class performance.
Typically, we evaluate a candidate’s resume and references, we bring them in for round robin interviews, and we are easily influenced by impressions of motivation and personality.
None of these activities are significantly increasing our hit rate.
A candidate’s experience, technical expertise, personality factors and motivation cannot predict for top quartile performance.

From enterprise to individual.
What talents correlate to success? What experiences are most valuable? What knowledge is additive?
CANADA / MEXICO
Decades of research have shown that experience and expertise fail to predict for superior performance. Motivation and personality are important factors in personal development but still fall short. Research tells us that talent is the top predictor for superior performance.
