One of the nation's biggest music labels briefly signed Taylor Swift to a contract but let her go because she didn't seem worth more than $15,000 a year. At least four book publishers passed on the first Harry Potter novel rather than pay J. K. Rowling a $5,000 advance. And the same pattern happens in nearly every business. Anyone who recruits talent faces the same basic challenge, whether we work for a big company, a new start-up, a Hollywood studio, a hospital, or the Green Berets. We all wonder how to tell the really outstanding prospects from the ones who look great on paper but then fail on the job. Or, equally important, how to spot the ones who don't look so good on paper but might still deliver extraordinary performance. Over the past few decades, technology has made recruiting in all fields vastly more sophisticated. Gut instincts have yielded to benchmarks. If we want elaborate dossiers on candidates, we can gather facts (and video) by the gigabyte. And yet the results are just as spotty as they were in the age of the rotary phone. George Anders sought out the world's savviest talent judges to see what they do differently from the rest of us. He reveals how the U.S. Army finds soldiers with the character to be in Special Forces without asking them to fire a single bullet. He takes us to an elite basketball tournament in South Carolina, where the best scouts watch the game in a radically different way from the casual fan. He talks to researchers who are reinventing the process of hiring Fortune 500 CEOs. Drawing on the best advice of these and other talent masters, Anders reveals powerful ideas you can apply to your own hiring. For instance: ● Don't ignore "the jagged résumé"-people whose background appears to teeter on the edge between success and failure. Such people can do spectacular work in the right settings, where their strengths dramatically outweigh their flaws. ● Look extra hard for "talent that whispers"- the obscure, out-of-the- way candidates who most scouting systems overlook. ● Be careful with "talent that shouts"-the spectacular but brash candidates who might have trouble with loyalty, motivation, and team spirit. Each field that Anders explores has its own lingo, customs, and history. But the specific stories fit together into a bigger mosaic. In any field, there's an art to clearing away the clutter and focusing on what matters most. It's not necessarily hard, but it requires the courage to take a different approach in pursuit of the rare find. Highly recommend Anders examination of identifying and selecting out those among us who are capable of exceptional success: ➽ thinking in new paradigms, ➽ defining new pathways, ➽ and how to identify those characteristics for our companies and our projects. The author examines the highly unique, breakthrough talents among us. The accidentally recruited, mistakenly ignored, insightfully developed and tragically overlooked, sometimes blindingly successful people who express great potential despite oversights in the military, entertainment industry, research and science fields. Empirical insights also suggest tips to encourage the best foot forward when that talented person might be ourselves or someone we nurture. For some companies, the process of hiring a new employee can be the same as placing a wager on a thoroughbred. Despite in-depth research, lengthy accolade-filled resumes and ringing endorsements, employers are often left in the same state as gamblers who put their hopes on a “sure thing,”: tearing their tickets up in disgust. Meanwhile, a select few back an unlikely candidate that surges past the pack and into the record books. Columnist and author George Anders takes an in-depth look at the science of recognizing talent in his new book The Rare Find: Spotting Exceptional Talent Before Everyone Else. Anders tackles the question of talent discovery with writing that will keep any executive riveted to the page. He has a gift for telling a compelling story but sacrifices none of the takeaways that business book readers require in exchange for the investment of their time. By putting examples from Teach for America alongside more predictable references to Facebook and Hewlett-Packard, Anders provides a more complete picture of the talent-scouting process. Any executive who is involved in the hiring process at his or her company will want to read Anders section on “the jagged resume.” A candidate’s scattered success record used to be a one-way ticket to the discard pile. However, Anders does a masterful job of teaching readers why a potential employee with an up-and-down record could become a superstar if your company is the right setting. This easy-to-read book also discusses modern thinking in talent recruiting. Despite the title, it's more than just finding the very top talent; it concerns how to identify people that will survive and excel when most would quit. The book focuses on finding talent that conventional methods would disqualify. ---------------------------------------------_ KIRKUS REVIEW ： How-to for headhunters seeking raw, undiscovered talent from the New York Times bestselling author of Perfect Enough. With a maddening number of applications to sift through each day, how can a talent hunter be sure that the best candidate on paper is really the best one for the job? Anders argues that tomorrow's high-performing executives aren't necessarily found on the higher rungs of existing company ladders. In a digital environment driven by keywords, his guide offers a welcome lifeline for candidates who rarely make the top of the search results by taking a refreshingly personal rather than objective approach to making hiring decisions. Comparing the top performers in arenas like professional sports, Hollywood and the military to those with less glamorous occupations, Anders explains the subtler clues wise recruiters use to spot a future star—and charisma is not on the list. He offers fascinating insight into why companies like Goldman Sachs prize ambition over Ivy League educations and how Jeff Bezos scraped together his first million to create Amazon. The result is not so much a formula for finding talent as it is a mindset of being willing to take a risk on prospects with limited experience in order to create—not just poach—potential stars. A lively and nuanced look at the hiring process. --------------------------------------------------- “George Anders is himself a rare find.
