A Deal-Breaker Q For Job Interviews

31 Aug

On August 28, the Sunday New York Times had a terrific interview with Andy Lansing of Levy Restaurants in Chicago.  An excellent discussion of leadership and a couple of job interview questions that are the most intriguing I have ever seen.  These will certainly make you re-examine what you are hiring for and how you are interviewing potential employees. The first question he asks in the interview is:

       • “Are you nice?”

And the second is:

       • “What are you passionate about in you life?”

To read why he does this and the results he gets go to:
