- Scott’s greatest habit is self discipline.
- When we create self discipline in one area of life, we can transfer it to other areas as well.
- Scott teaches a new way of hiring.
- The old way of hiring was to keep a job open till the right person came along to fill it.
- The new way of hiring is to line up talented people and wait for the right job position to open for them.
- When you have the talent you need, you focus on your work and not on trying to get the right people hired.
- Scott’s 6-step process helps people increase the flow of talent, harness that flow, and sustain the flow for when jobs open.
- If you’re seeking a job you should:
- 1. Go look at a bunch of different jobs.
- 2. Create experiences.
- A traditional interview consists of three components; tell, sell, and swell.
- Most traditional interviews are promise based.
- Scott suggests creating an experience out of your interview so you can see and hear what your job will be like.
- Too many companies do not stand out because they’re not good at bragging. They must get better at:
- 1. Sharing why people want to work for them.
- 2. Sharing why people want to work for them in the right places.
- There are 8 different streams of talent and not 1 gives you access to all of the talent.
- Last minute advice:
- 1. Pick what your core roles are. Decide to fill your job the moment it becomes open.
- 2. Start lining up talent now. It’s all about when the jobs will be open, not if.
- 3. Learn about the 8 streams of talent. Start leveraging them 1 at a time.
- 4. Start having conversations with people ahead of time.
- 5. Maintain the flow.
