Stop Hiring Employees forTheir Storytelling Abilities

The Growing Your Team Podcast Episode 61

Think back to the most recent job interview you conducted. During that interview, what was the goal of the questions you asked? Did you ask questions to uncover skills and abilities, or did you ask questions designed to discover the best storyteller?

You might think that’s a silly question for me to ask, but chances are, you unintentionally asked questions that tested candidates’ storytelling abilities. 

It’s time to stop hiring employees for their storytelling abilities and start hiring employees because they are truly the right person for the job. In this episode, you’ll learn how.
