An insider’s guide to finding the right person for the right job–every time Great People Decisions is an expert’s guide to helping managers and human resources professionals improve their competence and success at finding, assessing, attracting, and integrating great people, whether through external hiring or internal promotion. Anyone can fill a position; the real trick is to find the right person to fill that position, do an excellent job, and go on to achieve the kind of personal and professional success that helps the organization as well as the individual. Great People Decisions argues that filling every position with the perfect person for the job leads to organization-wide success. Executive search consultant Claudio Fernández-Aráoz offers his expert insight into every aspect of the search for great people–from casting a wide net when searching for candidates (inside and outside of the organization) to avoiding emotional traps when interviewing candidates.
