Future Colleagues – Recruiting and Self Managing Organizations

Brent Lowe, Susan Basterfield and Travis Marsh co-authors of Lead Together book, discuss recruiting and self-managing organisations. Originally available on YouTube.

One way or another we all learn how important a good recruiting process can be. All it takes is one bad hire… or two… or three before we realize the cost of under-investing in recruiting.

The most successful teams make recruiting a top priority. For teams embracing a philosophy of leading together—such as self-management or decentralized leadership—recruiting takes on even greater importance.

In this video, Lead Together co-authors Brent Lowe, Susan Basterfield and Travis Marsh share insights into how self-managing organizations approach recruiting to ensure they build the best teams.

They discuss:

– Differences in recruiting processes between traditional and self-managing organizations

– Characteristics, behaviours and mindsets to look for when hiring someone to join a self-managing organization

– The importance of alignment between individual and organizational purpose and values
