  • The Five Best Predictors of Long Term Success:
    Selecting top talent should not be like gazing into a crystal ball or guessing
    One – High Initiative – Top talent is self-motivated. They possess high initiative. Your best employees do more than they are asked to do, continually go the extra mile, and don’t wait to be told what to do next.
    Two – Flawless Execution - Projects are completed on time, budgets are hit, metrics and measurements are achieved and do not slip backwards. Deadlines are not missed and products are launched on time. The organization hits their annual business plan because everyone is executing flawlessly.
    Three – Top talent is great at leading and facilitating others in flawless execution. Most activity takes place in the context of working through others on projects - with customers, tiger teams, and the formal departmental team.
    Four – Past Success – You must be able to have the confidence that the individual can achieve the SUCCESS FACTOR SNAPSHOT through prior similar successes that are close in scope, size, budget, timeframe, speed, environment, and impact.
    Five – Adaptability - Can the individual take their success from other environments and adapt to achieving similar success in your unique environment. Candidates frequently fail because they cannot adapt to a new culture or environment.
