HIRING TALENTED TEAM PLAYERS is Released
The Hire Talent owner Fletcher Wimbush is excited to announce the release of its first E-book. The release follows the publication of seven articles on ERE.net and on The Hire Talent's own web site, www.thehiretalent.com/news. Our new E-book focuses on the importance of hiring people who are not just competent but who also have great attitudes. Leadership IQ conducted a survey of 20,000 managers and found 46% of all new hires fail within their first 18 months. Of these, a staggering 89% percent fail because of attitudinal problems.
This book walks hiring managers step-by-step through the processes needed to solve this problem. It's about managers identifying attitude issues early in the selection process and preventing them from becoming their next hiring nightmare-what we call these people "problem generators." In addition to flushing these monsters out, you also have to find highly competent and capable people, and this book will help you do exactly that.
The book was written by Kingsley J Wimbush and edited by his son Fletcher Forrest Wimbush. Kingsley mentored Fletcher his whole life to become a successful leader and expert in hiring. Kingsley passed away on March 10, 2013, after a nine month battle with a little-known disease called Wegener's Granuloma. Kingsley had the opportunity to spend his last moments on this earth with the ones he loved the most-his wife, Vicki Wimbush, his step-son, Michael Littlefield, his daughter-in-law, Rocio Wimbush, and his son, Fletcher. All were present when he passed.
Before he passed, Kingsley asked Michael and Fletcher to carry on his legacy of teaching business leaders some of the most critical and fundamental principles of success. Of these, one of the most important is to hire competent, good-natured people who will help you to build a strong, vibrant and healthy business.
Fletcher and Michael have taken this commitment seriously. They spend just about every waking moment trying to find ways to spread the message and help others achieve their dreams. Ten percent of all revenue from this book will be donated to finding a cure for Wegener's Granuloma.
