The False Attribute
Many people think that willingness is an important attribute when we are trying to recruit a teammate. It’s important that someone is willing to join the team, but if we settle only because they are willing, we will end up with a group of people that will likely join anything. They may not be skilled, respectful, or passionate enough to be a great teammate, but they will show up on the first day. This is not a wise place to set the bar, but it is too often the level of commitment we settle for because it’s easy.
