Most managers dream of building a team that’s settled and stable for the long-term. Despite the evidence of countless hires and resignations, they continue the same old recruitment path. They follow their hope more than their reason.
It’s like the mirage that lures the credulous traveler deeper into the desert. She knows there’s no water ahead, but she’s desperate. And the more she trusts her hope and not her mind, the more likely she is to get further into trouble.
But hope is not a strategy.
Maybe it shouldn’t surprise us. People are notoriously difficult to read, define, understand, predict or pin down. We’re a complex mix of mind, heart and soul. There is no science on Earth that can possibly categorize such ephemeral beings as us completely, is there?
No, there isn’t. Not completely. the evidence of countless hires and resignations, they continue the same tired old recruitment path. They follow their hope more than their reason.

Natural strengths and talents. It’s now known that if our underlying talents are not aligned with our job function, there is no amount of skills or qualifications that can compensate. We will never be happy and we’ll work on our CV for ever, searching desperately in the wrong places for the perfect job just like the explorer looking in the wrong direction for an oasis.
Talent and Skills: the difference
Natural talent: As integral to our minds as DNA is to our bodies
Skills: Layered on top like paper on a wall
It doesn’t have to be this way.
