99% Of Recruitment Is About Who You Don’t Sign

In the middle of the January transfer window for European soccer, the key recruitment message at elite sports teams is clear: 99% of recruitment is about who you don’t sign.


All great organizations take pride in their culture and nurture and protect it at every opportunity

If you are a high performing organization at the top of your game the key to sustained success and development comes in how well you can police your culture and project your best talent. All great talent wants to work with other great talent, and the loss of key players can be detrimental to the performance of your team as a whole.

As a leader the recruitment process is more weighted towards how you filter and protect the group from the wrong type of individuals coming into your business. This is more important than who you recruit ultimately.
