Course overview

Talent Spotting Is Your Competitive Advantage

If you're a founder, investor or leader, you know getting the right people in the right roles is critical to your mission.


Don't leave it to chance.


You want world-class strategies and tactics. And a repeatable talent algorithm that scales across the life of your company.

This Is Worth Your Time If...

01

You recognize the importance of hiring the right team.


You're likely a founder, investor, or manager in a high-stakes leadership role.

02

You want an efficient process that delivers great hires consistently.


You know that mishires are 6-figure mistakes and a culture threat.

03

You sense that hiring is a crucial priority for you.


But you haven't had the time or brain space to put a world-class system in place.

Strategy. Tactics. Live Practice. Instant Impact.

  • Translate your business needs into an actionable document that drives a coherent, end-to-end hiring process.
  • Increase the accuracy of your hiring decisions and reduce implicit bias throughout the process.
Get Past the BS to Real Data.
  • Master the fundamentals of great rapport that allow candidates to truly open up *and* make them enjoy the interview more.
  • Leave each interview with ratings backed by reliable data rather than misleading gut impressions.
Coordinate Seamlessly. Master Your Time.

  • Within each interview, learn the high-impact questions and follow-ups that deliver value, and ditch the time-wasters.
Reduce Bias. Reduce Noise. Make Better Decisions.
  • Establish a consistent, repeatable process that prevents biased interviewing (what most people do without realizing it).
  • Learn how to divide responsibilities, combine data intelligently, and reduce groupthink in your decisions.
Get the Best to Say Yes.
  • Build a world-class selling message throughout your process without ever coming across as pushy or desperate.
