Cynopsis: Classified Advantage
Good morning. It’s Tuesday, January 21, 2014, and this is your weekly issue of Cynopsis: Classified Advantage!
Welcome to Leadership Lessons, the column that focuses on conversations with senior managers and leaders in the TV world, speaking candidly about their professional journeys and how that informs what they look for when hiring new employees.
Keith Gordon, President, NFL Players, Inc: I like to start out by asking them to tell me about themselves – if they recite their resume to me, they’ve lost points already. I want to know about them, not just what’s on the sheet of paper. I also prefer to go directly at most people and ask them point blank: “why should I hire you over someone else who’s arguably more qualified for this job?” I’m not always looking for the pedigree, but I’m looking to see how people analyze scenarios, synthesize information and deal with conflict. More often than not, those are very difficult skills to teach, so if they’re already there I can usually overlook other shortcomings with experience.
Paul Cestari, General Manager, Veria Living: Obviously, trade skills are required depending on what the role is, but I think one of the most important elements are drive and initiative. As much as people can learn the skills of a particular job, drive really is an innate thing. As long as someone possesses drive, they can typically learn as they go — encountering and overcoming new circumstances and challenges along the way. People with those talents usually manage things well beyond just simply being directed…they are the ones who take ownership of problems and relish the process of finding and implementing creative solutions.
Bob Scanlon, General Manager of Velocity: Someone who can articulate a clear career aspiration. What will get you out of bed in the morning-not to go to work, but to go to your dream job? I admire people who have thought that through before coming in.
