A couple of years ago our practice found itself in the position of needing to hire a couple of new staff members. Now, the hiring process is not one of my favorite things to do because many times for one reason or another it doesn’t work out.

I had been told that it takes going through the hiring process 10 times before you find the right employee. I know that is not true if you use the correct process the first time which is taught by my friend Jay Henderson at http://www.realtalenthiring.com

As an employer or manager, you know how hard it is to keep your people happy all of the time. So, this time I thought, “I will find people who are already happy to hire.”

The interviews became fun as I asked questions about the candidates, hobbies, likes and dislikes. I could hear and observe if they sounded and appeared happy as they talked. I hired the two happiest people, at least I thought they were happy, and to this day they remain happy at work.

It is not that things don’t come up that are frustrating or difficult, but when you are generally a happy soul it is easier to find solutions and want to have the desire to make it a great day.

Also, when you work with happy people it naturally creates a happy work environment which makes for a great place to work.

“They say a person needs just three things to be truly happy in this world: Someone to love, something to do, and something to hope for.” Tom Bodett


Keep moving forward,
