Three Interview Questions To Ask When Recruiting General Managers

09/03/2019


If you focus on collecting the relevant facts, the appropriate action becomes obvious.


Following are the top 3 criteria we cover right away when evaluating General Manager talent.


#1 Experience is not equal to Proven History of Success. Be aware of the experience trap. Professionals holding the position over several years is not a leading indicator of success. Financials don’t lie.


Interview question:


What was the P&L you inherited and what did you grow it to?


#2 It’s about the People. The level of leadership revolves around the quality of people they can attract, develop and promote. Young smart people want to be mentored – some leaders are good mentors, some are not.


Interview questions:


How many people have you recruited, developed and promoted?


How many were in their 20’s when you recruited them?
