Recruit for Attitude and Train for Skills.

Take a look at my friend David Wike’s new Blog – Random Ramblings

David has written a fascinating posting today about skills shortages for the future and I’m sure he would value comments from regular Simplicity readers.

My own view about all this is that we need to reverse the historical trend.

For as long as I can remember the perceived wisdom in management and business is that we should recruit for skills and train for attitude.

I support the opposite – recruit for attitude and train for skills.

Thanks David for a great topic.
