Hire Staff with Mindset to Learn and Succeed

Insight Assessment: Grow with Strong Thinkers

Are you hiring new staff now? Are you successful?

If you’re finding it hard to find skilled workers, it’s important to be sure that you’re looking for the job qualifications your employees really need.  Do your recruitment and job descriptions target people who are already doing this job?  Or are you looking for future employees who have the ability and mindset to learn and to do the job?

  • When evaluating job candidates, it’s essential to make sure that new hires have strong work habits of mind. By assessing thinking skill strength, you can develop a team with the drive to produce results. Smart managers prioritize finding people who will think well on the job.
  • Strength in reasoning ability means more than the possession of thinking skills. Individuals can have experience and skills but not the motivation to use them when making decisions.
  • Effective problem solvers have strong thinking skills and, equally important, the positive mindset to consistently apply those skills. These employees are motivated to engage problems. They bring commitment, focus, tolerance and resourcefulness to their decision-making process.
  • When evaluating job candidates, it’s essential to make sure that new hires have strong work habits of mind. By assessing thinking skill strength, you can develop a team with the drive to produce results. Smart managers prioritize finding people who will think well on the job.
  • You need to know which employees will benefit from training and develop their skills. We’ve all heard the hire for attitudes, train for skills strategy. Avoid people with the bad habits of mind that bring down the performance of the whole team. Hire employees who will fit into your work culture, who have a strong work ethic, who are flexible and who are eager to learn and to grow.

How will you know you're hiring the right candidates?

  • It is possible to establish strong reasoning skills and positive mindset attributes as a requirement for all positions and set a measurable standard in your organization . Don't rely on gut feelings or opinion to decide whether candidates can meet your requirements. The reasoning skills and professional attributes measured by the INSIGHT series are predictive of workplace success.
