Articles & Advice

talkingA CEO explains how the answer to an unusual interview question helps determine who should get hired
From Business Insider

Most job candidates go into interviews expecting to discuss their previous jobs, academic work, and hobbies. But James Cline, CEO of the outdoor decks-maker Trex Company, prefers to reach even further into the past by asking, “what’s your oldest memory?” “I want to understand their background, their roots, where they came from, what it was like growing up,” he told Business Insider.

image22 Qualities That Make A Great Leader (Slideshow)
From Entrepreneur

1. Focus – “It’s been said that leadership is making important but unpopular decisions. That’s certainly a partial truth, but I think it underscores the importance of focus. To be a good leader, you cannot major in minor things, and you must be less distracted than your competition. To get the few critical things done, you must develop incredible selective ignorance. Otherwise, the trivial will drown you.”  Read More…
