You may need certain, specific attributes when hiring, but keep an open mind as you meet applicants and learn more about them. Hiring STAR employees is a matter of give and take. In addition to getting what you want, you may have to accept some qualities that you may not need or even particularly like. The bottom line questions you need answers to are:
1. Can they do the job?
2. Will they do it well?
3. Can we work together?
If the answers to all three are “yes,” the probability for success is high.
