Review: 'Hire With Your Head' by Lou Adler

Let's face it: it's hard to find good people. Even when you find someone you think will be a great fit, it's difficult to determine in advance whether or not a new hire will work. To complicate matters, making a bad hire is very expensive in terms of money and opportunity cost.

Hire With Your Head is a systematic approach to discovering, evaluating, and hiring the best employees and contractors you can find. Lou Adler is a former corporate executive turned recruiting consultant, and shares his step-by-step method to finding, qualifying, hiring, and integrating new employees into your organization.

Hiring well is a complex process, and Hire With Your Head covers every aspect of the process. You'll learn everything from writing clear and compelling job descriptions to interviewing and extending offers to promising candidates. Once you establish an effective hiring process, you'll find it much easier to focus on the purpose of hiring: building a productive, high-performing organization.
