Publisher's Summary

Discover the hiring secrets for building a strong, powerful, profitable team... one person at a time!
Almost everyone involved in the hiring process understands why it is so critical to find the very best candidate for a particular job. But few understand how to do it. People base hiring decisions on gut reaction or on a largely irrelevant set of criteria. All too often, the resulting employee is ineffectual, unmotivated, or simply not a good fit with the job they were hired to do - which can damage morale, team performance, and ultimately profits for years to come.
In Talent Rules!, Lou Adler lays out a step-by-step system that will empower you to hire the right person every time. Lou's proven methods will enable you to evaluate a candidate based on measurable performance objectives, rather than your own impulses, and make consistently sound hiring decisions that result in a strong, cohesive team that operates at optimum levels. You'll discover:

What you could be saying in your job descriptions that attracts the wrong candidates... and more importantly, doesn't attract the right ones.
How the top candidates look for jobs, and what you need to do to get your position in front of their eyes.
The two effects that lead to more hiring mistakes than any others.
The most important interview question of all time - it will give you 65-75% of everything you need to make a hiring decision.
The 10-factor assessment form that will empower you to accurately determine a candidate's performance potential once the interview process has ended.
Highly effective ways to overcoming compensation challenges and persuade a great candidate to pass up more money in order to take your job.
How to maximize the power of online sourcing channels like Google, Career Builder, Monster, etc.
And so much more.

learn massive information about how to hire!

This was written for recruiters but any manager of even a small company needs to learn 3/4 of this information to save years of making bad decisions. I wish I had read this book 20 years ago. by the way this author is one of the few who should ever read his own books.

Best audio book I've found on the subject.

There's a lot crammed in there, take off points for deeper study. The principles are timeless. A little dated, like references to My Space, etc.
