Sneak peek

Don't Forget the Importance of Personality

When you're the owner of a rapidly growing startup or small business, it's really easy to get swept up in the chase for talent, becoming as obsessed with the skills shortage as the rest of the media. This can be dangerous, because the talent-shortage hysteria is largely focused on technical skills. In the panic, employers often forget about the soft, social skills that are just as important to business success.

An oft-cited study from Leadership IQ shows that just 11 percent of new hires fail due to their lack of technical competence. On the other hand, a massive 89 percent of new hires fail because they lack the necessary soft skills.
