If you’re looking to add someone who can come in and improve a certain part of your business… if you’re looking for someone to add system, add expertise and up-level your business, you have to find an “A” player employee.
“A” players, as many people call the best of the best employees… aren’t easy to come by. But there is a way that you can increase your chances of grabbing the attention of “A” players and hiring them onto your team.
“A” players can often make 10x the impact that a “B” player can make and Carrot CEO Trevor Mauch shares how to structure your company to make “A” players want to work for you, how to create your hiring process so it filters out the “B” and “C” players, and how to motivate “A” players to come work for you.
It’s not a “copy and paste” solution so be ready to get to work and fundamentally change the way you’re currently looking for great people.
