Interview tip – no salt!
Here is a little story I heard from GoSchedule about how Thomas Edison conducted interviews. It goes something like this:
When Edison met a potential hire, he would simply invite them to have a bowl of soup with him. If they added salt to their soup without first tasting it, they were immediately disqualified. That was the interview.
Why? Because he knew that his work couldn’t afford to have decisions made on assumptions.
Most likely your business can’t either. If your company needs to break thru the assumptions and the status quo, maybe this little interview tip will help in sorting out the true innovate and creative thinkers from the posers.
