How do you choose people to work with? Is it C.L.E.A.R.? Here is a list of 3 points per letter that have been designed to help you identify and clarify traits about people you might consider working with. I will be upfront that many of these questions are slightly more in-depth than normal interview questions and aim to study a person beyond the basic comprehension levels concerning the general tasks they might be assigned. Some of these questions can be discussed directly with the person and others can be used based on your own personal observations. These questions will be most suitable for leaders who are looking to develop those they are working with.
One rule of thumb I try and practice is to never expect out of others more than what I expect out of myself. If you are in a position of leadership and you are considering utilizing some of these questions, I would recommend walking through them for yourself first and see how you measure up. It will provide better insight and common ground when using these questions for others.
Talk soon & God bless,
