How Richard Branson Hires People - Link

Thanks to friend Achyut Menon. Kind of a long link, but let me try to give the gist before you click.

 Branson says he looks for a personality first "that fits your company culture". Personality - one who is fun, friendly, caring and loves helping others. 

Then comes experience.

And then expertise.

Then the persons ability to be a team player who is willing to try his/her hand at different jobs.

Its okay if he/she is a maverick. Qualifications come last.

Leadership is paramount - the wrong leader can destroy the company very quickly. Ideally find the leader from within and go outside only when you cannot find one.

Great line to sum up - "It's better to have a hole in your team than an asshole in your team." - Samir Desai{%2210153335536925397%22%3A668525803158878}&action_type_map={%2210153335536925397%22%3A%22og.likes%22}&action_ref_map=[]
