What would you ask Kelly Rowland?
- Apr 27 '17
Harvey Mackay: Well there’s a million words in the English language. You can’t be a president of a university, you can’t be a coach, you can’t be an entrepreneur, you can’t be a CEO unless you understand this one four-letter word. H-I-R-E. Hire. If you can’t hire, Larry, you can’t be a leader. And I’ve studied hiring for the last 50 years. At the feet of the best people.
Larry King: What’s the key to that?
Harvey Mackay: Well there’s about 3 or 4 or 5 different keys, but you have to interview them in different situations, you have to go back to the kindergarten, get that kindergarten person, find out—this is number one of course—T-R-U-S-T. I mean if you can’t trust that person that’s on the other side of the interview, the interview’s over with. If you’re a salesperson, Larry, I would say to myself, to my brain bank, “How would I feel if this person were working for my competitor?” And if I’m not worried, that’s the end of the interview. It’s just a little street-smart secret that I happen to use. But if you can’t hire, Larry, you don’t have a chance.
