Understanding and Overcoming The Skill Wall

Jan 27, 2022

Who’s the better employee – the deeply committed, personally invested person who lacks some raw skills, or the highly skilled person who can sometimes be tough to manage? Should you hire for skill, or for “fit”? What does any of that even mean? In today’s episode Managing Partner and Co-Founder Nelson Tepfer helps us make sense of the Skill Wall, including insights and perspective on when to explore hard skills versus passion, and why having a vision of success for the role before even exploring options is critical. Especially when the labor market is as tight as it is, this is essential listening for the leader looking to make sense of what to do with the best, and what to do with the rest.
