MANAGEMENT is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; LEADERSHIP determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall - Stephen Covey

Recruiting the right person???

Put about 100 bricks in no particular order in a closed room with an openwindow. Then send 2 or 3 candidates in the room and close the door. Leave them alone and come back after 6 hours and then analyze the situation.
If they are counting the bricks - Have them in your ACCOUNTS department.
If they are recounting them - Have them in your AUDIT dept.
If they have messed up the whole place with the bricks - Have them in your ENGINEERING dept.
If they are arranging the bricks in some strange order - Have them in PLANNING.
If they are throwing the bricks at each other - Have them in OPERATIONS.
If they are sleeping - Have them in RECEPTION.
If they have broken the bricks into pieces - Have them in IT.
If they are sitting idle - Have them in HUMAN RESOURCES
If they say they have tried different combinations, yet not a brick has been moved - Have them in SALES.
If they have already left for the day - Have them in MARKETING.
If they are staring out of the window - Have them on STRATEGIC PLANNING team.
And then last but not least.
If they are talking to each other and not a single brick has been moved - Congratulate them and take them on to your Company Board!!!

Yes. If 'am the deciding factor, I will take them on the board of my Company- a little difference- I will take them to hold my COMPANY'S NOTICE BOARD. They will hold the notice board firmly and still continue talking to each other for free.
