In my book, the Culture Blueprint, I go over how to structure a hiring program.
More and more I’ve found that diversity on a team is key. I spoke with an entrepreneur who only realized that he had hired people exactly like him once he had them all take the DISC personality test.
There are three tests I’ve seen effective. Once you’ve reached the stage of seriously considering a hire, you might ask the candidate to take them.
If you already have a team I would recommend spacing these out so that people are not overwhelmed with the testing and the data.
DISC – Tests work behaviors
Kolbe – Determines how you get things done.
Strengths Finder – Helps you locate your unique abilities.
