“It’s better to hang out with people better than you. Pick out associates whose behavior is better than yours and you’ll drift in that direction.”. ~Warren Buffett
What are Warren Buffett’s criteria for hiring employees?
Buffett is one of the wealthiest men in the world who possesses incredible insight into investing and business. What does it take to get hired by him? What he says ought to matter!
First, a potential employee must be curious — someone who is a perpetual student and constant learner. Knowledge is fluid and curiosity is so important because it allows us to connect the dots between disciplines.
Trait number 2? Coachability! Learning isn’t enough if you aren’t coachable. Managers today are coaches more than anything, and the greatest coaches reinforce the good and positively redirect what needs tweaking.
Trait number three: Character (ethics). The first two don’t matter a whole lot with no ethics behind them!
Listen in for a fun and fascinating look at one brilliant man’s insight into what makes a valuable contributor.
