Leda Writes for Fintech Futures: Hiring technicolour delivery teams

Dr Leda Glyptis

Every Thursday, Leda Glyptis, 11:FS Chief of Staff creates #LedaWrites. This week she turns her attention to hiring the people who make the best teams.

Industrialisation has tried and failed to automate humans. It came close, but information age work requires human teams. #LedaWrites about how the quality of your people depends partly on what you teach them, but also how they think. The people who’ll see the same journey across the sea as you. You need to sift through the grey inflexible workers who can only react in one way to find the technicolour stars who can flip from one style of work the next as and when needed.

You need to find the weirdo, someone who’s so weird that they’re a legend in your eyes. Have your common sense filters but pay attention to the little things that make them stand out from the pack. Don’t just hire someone on who’s functional, hire someone who longs for the same sea you do.
