"If you don't have a good attitude, we don't want you, no matter how skilled you are. We can change skill levels through training. We can't change attitude." - Herb Kelleher, Founder, Southwest Airlines
A study by Leadership IQ found that 46% of new hires are either fired or disciplined within their first 18 months. And in a staggering 89% of those cases, the reason for the action isn't incompetence, but attitude: poor motivation, bad temperament, or emotional issues.
As Herb Kelleher says, you can teach technical skills, but you can't teach attitude. To help you make great hires every time, Business Management Daily has teamed up with a leading consultant and speaker on an amazing new webinar: Hiring for Attitude.
Join us August 1st for this important new event. Mark Murphy, Chairman and CEO of Leadership IQ, will share secrets from his book Hiring for Attitude: A Revolutionary Approach to Recruiting Star Performers with both Tremendous Skills and Superb Attitude.
Why attitude counts
The "3-3-3" exercise to determine an applicant's attitude
Characteristics of high AND low performers
9 sample interview questions – and how to ask them
Case studies of attitude-based hiring
4 warning signs of bad-attitude applicants
How to interpret the answers you get
The 5-step Universal Hiring Question
Steps for effective evaluation
And much more!
Mark will also specifically focus on Southwest Airlines' hiring process. They offer pilots the chance to try on the airline's trademark brown shorts during the interview process. Those who accept show they share Southwest's culture of fun. Those who decline are shown the door.
Mark will help you identify your own "brown shorts" company traits – helping you not only explain your culture to applicants, but clarifying it for yourself. Imagine the value of hiring someone who not only fits the job description, but also fits in!
Because this is a webinar, there is NO LIMIT to the number of company leaders, HR specialists, and hiring managers you can invite to participate. You can also ask Mark your hiring-related questions, and get custom answers (as you hear the questions your colleagues are asking, too).
Armed with the knowledge you'll glean from Hiring for Attitude, you'll boost morale … slash turnover … and send your career skyrocketing. And all this success will do wonders for YOUR attitude! I look forward to welcoming you on August 1st.
