When it comes to selecting employees, you need to develop a keen eye as you evaluate people. Here are some of the traits that Jorge Estrada of Leadership Coaching International, Puyallup, Wash., recommends looking for in potential employees. The prospective employee should:

  • Have a positive attitude.
  • Be willing to learn.
  • Have a beginner’s mind. That means someone who is open to your perspective, desires and directions. 
  • Be coachable.
  • Be motivated.
  • Be willing to work within a team.
  • Get along well with others.
  • Be open to change.
  • Have leadership skills.
