|"Finding the right person for the job has to date largely been more a matter of chance than of good judgement.
But, in these challenging times, businesses that hope to survive and prosper need rely on much more than pure luck.
Ed Grimshaw's innovative book offers not just hope, but also the practical means to a very important end.
Writing from a position of in-depth practical experience, this manual demonstrates that the skill-sets required to guarantee a "perfect fit" are learnable, and once learned, take the guesswork out of successful recruitment and employment." Garner Thomson, Author, Magic in Practice
Finding the right candidate, in this Credit Crunch Climate, is more important than ever.
Selecting the best person for a position is difficult, you only have a short space of time in an interview to decide if this is the person you want to be working with for what could be many years.
This is why Neuro Linguistic Programming is so effective; in applying NLP to business we can gain a deeper insight into how people function, individually and as part of a team. We can also increase our understanding of the patterns of communication and the behaviours that can help us to differentiate between a good candidate and the perfect candidate.
When writing The Perfect Fit, Ed Grimshaw realised that there were many problems that recruiters faced when looking for a new employee and he resolved to create simple, practical solutions.
These key areas include how to:
- Discover a balanced and thorough approach to recruitment without incurring high or excessive levels of cost.
- Learn how to gain deeper insights into how people function individually and in teams.
- Avoid the costly recruitment mistake of placing the wrong person in the wrong job!
- Increase the level of predictability and precision in assessing candidates during the selection process.
- Become more finely attuned to making clearer distinctions between individual candidates’ personal patterns of behaviour.
- Maximise the value attained from each recruitment decision.
- Learn how to attract candidates through use of “subliminal” language and influence.
- How to test candidates without incurring expensive profiling and assessment costs.
- Discover how you can match the candidate and your organisation’s culture.
- Extend your understanding of the relationship between organisations and people so you can develop “The Perfect Fit”.
If you interview others for a position within your company, you should read this book, learn from this book, really think about the information within this book. Hiring people is so much more than just finding a qualified person, it is about finding the right person.
Hiring the right person does not mean hiring the person you personally like, but the person who will bring experience, energy, and excitement to a company that will help it to grow and improve.
It can be difficult to determine if that right person is sitting across the desk from you unless you have the extensive knowledge and experience of Mr. Grimshaw.
If you don’t have it now, you can get it. Read this book and glean the knowledge. Adapt it, use it, let it help you.
