At some point in your career, you’re going to find yourself leading a team, department, division, or organization where you’re working with an employee who irritates you. Sometimes you know why. Often you don’t.

Jeff Bezos is the CEO of one of the worlds most successful companies – Amazon – who have grown at an astronomical rate, disrupting multiple industries along the way (did you know that Cloud Computing is one of Amazon’s largest and most profitable divisions, making life tough for Tech industry giants like IBM and Microsoft?) and changing the way we all shop.

Guiding an organization through transformation is one of the hardest things that leaders are called on to do.

Among many variables, transformation requires both seeing new business opportunities, and then taking meaningful steps to capture them. But to do this effectively, organizations can’t always work alone.  

As new technologies emerge and old industries converge, companies are finding that working independently to create the capabilities and technologies needed to enter a new industry is costly, risky, and even counterproductive.

There are some things every CEO is certain about. That’s what we get paid for. For instance, we’re certain that customers are more demanding now than they’ve ever been before. We’re certain that there are more things that can affect our business than ever before. We know that technology is changing faster than at any time in history. We also know that we have more data about everything than we ever had before. We also know that we’re busier than ever before in our lives.

Piles of applications and résumés represent time to sort through applicants, attempting to match a position with a person’s expertise and skills. It would be so much faster if the unsuitable job applicants walked in with a label on their forehead: “Reject.” Then you could spend time with the best qualified candidates.

The top candidates have unique qualifications, while the worst candidates share common flaws. Here are the glaring warning signs that will help you short-circuit those time-wasting interviews in the hiring process and move on to the top talent quickly.
