Must Haves

High Integrity & High IQ

Both are essential  to any winning organization and neither can be trained into an individual. A candidates likeability may tempt you to overlook these two traits, but doing so will be a disservice to your business 

Should Haves

The Definitely Should Haves are often called the 4 E's and a P.

Energy: Each candidate should be filled with vitality and intensity, possess stamina and the ability to go the distance day after day.

Energize: The ability to energize others. The candidate that exudes positivity and can stir co-workers to positive action. This trait is contagious in the work environment and can help your business productivity.

Edge:  The capacity to make decisions.  A candidate who is willing and able to be decisive in the hard call situations. When hiring, ask candidates to describe how they have made tough decisions.

Execution:The ability to accomplish. High IQ is a must have - but it has to be coupled with the ability to make ideas happen. Many candidates are smart or good at executing, a qualified candidate will have both traits.

Passion:  The 4 E's are great individually, they are even better when the candidate has passion for both work and life and better yet - passionate about people
