You have a key leadership need. You want to hire the very best. Will you know it when you see it?
Too often, the need for a leader turns into a search for a superstar. Someone with the best credentials and the hottest buzz. And when it turns out that superstar isn’t the right fit for the role, people are left wondering, “What did we do wrong?”
The best leaders, it turns out, aren’t found by looking for that one perfect person. Organizations get the leaders they need when they identify the demands of their situation, and create a process designed to locate the person who best fulfills those requirements.
Watch this cute and wise video from Spencer Stuart, which also serves as a promotion for a new book – You Need a Leader – Now What? - from CEO succession practice principals, Jim Citrin and Julie Daum.
