One set of criteria

1. One Set of Criteria

According to Jack Welch (2005), the following criteria need to be considered when selecting people for a position:

. Acid test

- integrity (people with integrity tell the truth and keep their word)

Integrity is defined as strength of character, honesty and courage, guided by a strong code of moral behaviour.

"...In today's frenetic world of immediacy and rapid change, the need to have a strong moral code to navigate and guide people of all ages is undoubted......to deal with the "washing machine of the 21st century"......The reality is that many previous eras and generations have also experienced enormous change......it is the case that each generation has a view of itself as being uniquely challenged by rabid change, a mass has a sometimes exaggerated view of its own experiences. Nevertheless, emerging from any form of social turbulence is the view that certain old values and beliefs are no longer valid. Integrity, however, is a value that is as true and required as ever...... strength of character, honesty and courage are is important today as they have been in any era......moving your moral perspective "according to the way in which the wind blows" can be dangerous, as too often it values popularity over substance......integrity has equal applicability to both individual and the institution......this is why a vision, mission and values statement is important as it creates pillars of belief and guidance......enacted through a variety of programs, activities and actions..."

- intellectual curiosity (don't confuse education with intelligence)

- maturity (can withstand the heat, handle stress and setbacks; enjoy the successes with humility. Furthermore, mature people respect the emotions of others; they feel confident but not arrogant; they have a good sense of humour, especially about themselves)

(as there are no good tests for these 3, need to rely on reference checks, reputation and intuition)

. 4 Es and 1 P

- possess positive energy

- ability to energize others

- have the edge, ie the courage to make tough decisions, especially with incomplete information

- able to execute, ie the ability to get the job done

- have passion for the job and life in general

. Others

- possess authenticity (self-confidence and conviction with a realness)

- ability to see around corners (have a special capacity, ie 6th sense, to anticipate the radically unexpected, or the ability to imagine the un-imaginable)

- able to surround themselves with people who are better and smarter than themselves

- resilience (need to learn from mistakes and be able to bounce back)
