MTL Motivators: Recruitment and Selection

In the "Recruitment and Selection" Motivators, you'll find some of the best advice ever written about how to hire people. Find out what Jack Welch means by the "three screen" tests; how Jim Collins can tell that you've made a hiring mistake; why Hans Eysenck thinks that the interview is a waste of time; why Guy Kawasaki says that the art of recruiting is the purest form of evangelism; the 2 questions Eric Sink asks when evaluating candidates; the one thing that the head of Pepsico looks for in applicants; and why Felix Adler says that hiring is like bringing out the picture in a puzzle. There are 100 slides in this collection. That's 100 priceless gems to use in your own personal learning or training.

"Recruitment and Selection" Motivators: Our Favourite Quotes

The following set of quotes from this collection are some of our personal favourites. You can also use them in the "2 Quotes and a Lie" game that follows below.

1. "When you hire people that are smarter than you, you prove that you are smarter than they are." (R. H. Grant)

2. "When I applied many years ago to join the Trinity College library, I was turned down not because I was a woman, but because I wasn't a man." (Mary Hainey, Irish minister of trade)

3. "If each of us hires people who are smaller than we are, we shall become a company of dwarfs. But if each of us hires people who are bigger than we are, we shall become a company of giants." (Ogilvie and Mather, advertising agency)

4. "The key for us, number one, has always been hiring very smart people." (Bill Gates)

5. "People are not your most important asset. The RIGHT people are." (Jim Collins)

"Recruitment and Selection" Motivators: "2 Quotes and a Lie"

As well as using this selection of quotes to learn more about Recruitment and Selection, you can also use them on training sessions in a game called, "2 Quotes and a Lie". Here's how to play it.

Divide the group into teams of 2 or 3. Hand out copies of the MTL "Recruitment and Selection" Motivators to each team. Give them a few minutes to select a quote that they particularly like from the collection. Now ask them to either hand back the collection or turn them over (so there is no cheating). Each team must now write the quote down word for word on a flipchart along with two other versions of the quote which are wrong. For a bit of fun, one of the other quotes can be obviously wrong (which strangely enough, is a good way for people to remember the quote) and the other quote can be not so obviously wrong. Teams then come up to the flipchart easel one at a time, display their 3 quotes, and challenge the other teams in the room to work out which quote is correct and which two are not. This game is similar to the "2 Truths and a Lie" icebreaker that is often used to introduce new people to each other at the start of a course. And can be just as much fun!
