Cristal’s Monthly Productivity Tips:
How to Hire the Perfect Manager
Hiring new managers will be among the most important business decisions that you will make. This decision will influence the growth, productivity and general success of your business in 2020. Sounds serious, right? It is! When deciding on who will fill these important roles on your staff, be sure to consider the following points:
Make sure Candidate is Trustworthy. Trust is number one aspect to look for when hiring. According to Simon Sinek, writer and motivational speaker, trust or character is even more important than job performance or skill-set when evaluating managerial candidates. Sinek sites the Navy Seals who rely on this hiring wisdom, stating that the trustworthy, medium-skilled candidate is a much better choice than the highly skilled, low trust candidate. A person that is trustworthy will be the best leader and will create an environment where the rest of your team can thrive. These trustworthy candidates are not simply driven by performance and achievements. They are guided by a higher moral code. Don’t skimp in this area! Your new managers will be handling company funds and have access to passwords, not to mention other sensitive data. Be sure to check their reference to gain a better idea if they are indeed trustworthy.
Hire an excellent communicator. Your managers will interface with patients, referring Physicians, and of course your employees. Making sure that they communicate clearly, decisively, and in a friendly manner will shine a positive light on your practice. Ask your managerial candidates about their approach to communication and share your own philosophy and expectations.
Look for a problem solver. You need to rely on your managers and consider them your first line of defense. Thus, you need to know if a candidate can take charge in an emergency and solve any other problems that may arise. During the interview process, be sure to ask about a time when something went completely wrong and what the candidate did to take control and rectify the situation. Their answer to this question will provide you with the necessary insight to know if they are the person to lead your staff.
