Hi there –
I’m going to teach you how to hire.
I spent more than 35 years in the radio industry as a station owner, senior executive and sales leader. During my last decade in corporate life I was the General Manager of two Boston FM radio stations and a Regional VP in New England at iHeartMedia (formerly Clear Channel). I led the management group for 51 radio stations and our team of 500+ people delivered more than $100 million in ad revenue every year.
I loved my job — and I was good at it. At the peak of my career, I was named General Manager of the Year on a national level. (It’s the Oscars in the radio industry).
My success didn’t come just from my tenacity or my experience. It was the result of many talented people doing their jobs very well.
…And that happened because I learned how to hire the right people for the right jobs, almost every time.
Why the ”almost?” Because the single “best” hire I ever made turned out to be the “worst” hire I ever made. I was a new manager and I was certain I’d hired the “perfect” person for an important job. But, within 60 days, the disconnect between his knowledge and his ability to do the job was alarming. We tried every fix possible, but 10 months later, I had to let him go. We lost a lot of money and an entire year of progress. It was my fault because I didn’t know how to hire.
Since then, I spent my career learning, mastering and teaching this essential skill.
In 2006, I left corporate life and launched an executive coaching company, JUST TELL ME HOW TO MANAGE Inc. Our clients are CEOs, entrepreneurs, senior executives and sales leaders at some of the most innovative Fortune 500s, as well as some groundbreaking private companies.
One challenge persisted in every consulting relationship: I saw talented managers hire the wrong people, over and over. But it wasn’t their fault! They were great at their jobs, but they’d never been taught how to hire.
So we added a new division to our company, JUST TELL ME HOW TO HIRE Inc. to teach our clients….wait for it…how to hire the right people for the right jobs, almost every time.
Now, I’m offering the method we created for hundreds of C-level executives, entrepreneurs, and sales leaders to others. It’s a one-hour video course called RAPID Hiring.
No question…there are many management skills that are incredibly important, but there is absolutely no skill that matters more in determining your success — or your failure — than the ability to hire the right people for the right jobs.
