Interview: Don Moore, Professor, Hass School of Business.
- Stay centred and focus on things you can control: You control the selection process. Spend time and develop one that suites your organisational needs.
- Be sceptical, there are personal and professional tricksters: It has become increasingly important to check all references and CV details. It has always been recognised that people ‘embellish’ their resume; today that can lead to outright lying.
- Avoid becoming cynical, recognise virtue, high ideals and heroism: As I have said before, there is a fine line between scepticism and cynicism. There are a lot of idealistic people out there, don't let a cynical outlook prevent you from recognising them.
- Use your years of experience wisely: To borrow from Don Quixote; don't tilt at windmills. It is amazing how many times, as human beings, we will ignore what are our experience tells us in the vain hope that it will be different this time. It's not that I think a hopeful outlook is completely wrong, I just think we should recognise these decisions for what they are and make plans if things go wrong.
- BE HAPPY: Remember to see things from the recruits Point of view. A smiling face and a upbeat demeanour will project a positive organisational attitude.
