Spotting Exceptional Talent Before Everyone Else

by George Anders

Anyone who recruits talent faces the same basic challenge, whether we work for a big company, a new start-up, a Hollywood studio, a hospital, or the Green Berets. We all wonder how to tell the really outstanding prospects from the ones who look great on paper but then fail on the job. Or, equally important, how to spot the ones who don't look so good on paper but might still deliver extraordinary performance. Author George Anders sought out the world's savviest talent judges to see what they do differently from the rest of us. Drawing on the best advice of these and other talent masters, Anders reveals powerful ideas you can apply to your own hiring.

  • Why you must be careful with the spectacular but brash candidates who might have trouble with loyalty, motivation and team spirit.
