To us, ‘who’ the person is as important as “what they know.” Of course, knowledge is important. But we’re also looking for someone who craves more knowledge, someone who can grow with us.
So the right mix of a little edginess (we don’t do dull), confidence (we are big on that!), passion (we are suckers when it comes to this) and a certain genuineness (we dig authenticity) almost make us go hallelujah!
We even miss a beat if we happen to chance upon a “warrior spirit”, one who is forward-looking and isn’t afraid to throw off the gloves and reinvent everything if the situation demands it.
In short, ‘compelling.’ And when we find people like that we hire them!
If anyone can make up in attitude what they lack in skill we are willing to train them. Why? Because what a person knows can change, but who they are inside doesn’t.
We don’t believe in hierarchy. No tight controls. No centralized decision-making. No bosses. (Phew!)
We do not believe that “spreading and sustaining excellence depends on having an effective pecking order.”
What we do believe in is equality and shared responsibility.
At Learnnovators, team members are partners working together to fulfill one or more tasks they are accountable for. At the same time, they are responsible to the greater organizational goal.
This is such a smooth way of eliminating power pyramids and ego battles that come with it. And it goes a long way in encouraging collaboration and productivity, promoting efficiency, and creating a few lifetime buddies.
