Every business these days is working in a fast moving, disrupted, technology-driven world. In order to survive we need to be constantly thinking outside the box, and potentially contrary to the ways we’ve been working for years.
If we continue to hire people who think the same way as the rest of the team groupthink and complacency can easily creep in and take over. For this reason I would challenge hiring managers to think differently about their hiring decisions and to start hiring people with complementary skills and thinking.
