ThriveMore with Roger Martin: Business, Health, & Wealth


Apr 10, 2024

In this episode, Roger is bringing listeners more insights from his book, An Insider's Guide to Business Secrets from an Entrepreneur's Journey. His expertise highlights how suboptimal hiring decisions are often not due to a poor labor pool but rather to the complexities and challenges of conducting effective interviews. In addition, he emphasizes hiring for traits over experience, arguing that while skills can be taught, inherent traits such as work ethic, problem-solving abilities, and integrity are non-negotiable foundations for building a strong team.

Roger also shares his thoughts on how competency selection interviewing is recommended as a more effective method for assessing potential hires, compared to traditional interviewing techniques which often fail to uncover the candidate's true capabilities. In addition, he advises on creating a rigorous, standardized hiring process and underscores the transformative impact of securing 'A players' who elevate the performance and culture of the entire business. In closing, Roger cautions against settling for less-than-ideal candidates, as it can ultimately lead to mediocrity and hinder business growth.
