How to Avoid Hiring Bullies, Liars, Passive Aggressive People and Sociopaths

Duration: 60 Minutes
Hiring people is the most important thing employers do. When you hire a person for your company, your decision will not just affect how that person performs that job, it will affect how everyone in their work group(s) performs their jobs as well. No one is perfect but when you hire truly dysfunctional people, they will have effects on everything and everyone in which they come into contact, including your customers. While no one wears a T-shirt advertising their dysfunction, it's really so simple to avoid hiring these people that you have to wonder why every employer has at least one of these types of people working for them, often in a management role. While they don't wear T-shirts they are easy to pick out if you know what to look for and how to talk to them.

One usually needs only to look around the office to see how corrosive the effects of a passive aggressive co-worker are.

Topic Background
Dysfunctional applicants can be some of the most polished, capable and charming people, you've ever encountered. We often enjoy being around them - at first. They can distort and control reality without your even noticing - until it's too late. These people run companies, divisions, departments, workgroups and projects. They are often high performing employees too. No one dares to get in his or her way. Once they work for you, they are very hard to deter from their courses of action and conduct. Anyone who tries sincerely and on a good faith basis to intervene usually finds themselves suddenly road kill on the corporate highway, not even sure how that happened. So the best course of action is to not hire them in the first place.
