Don’t settle for less than you deserve.
“We have candidates from our ad.” I hear it regularly. With unsurprising regularity, I check back and the position is still open… one, two, three months later, or more. If you’ve ever run want-ads for open leadership positions, you already know that generally the quality of “applicants” is low. Sometimes (too often) low-quality ends up being hired.
Was low-quality what you were shooting for? Of course not. Too often, ASCs and corporations seeking experienced ASC leaders end up settling for mediocrity. Settling for the best they think they can get… the best of those who “apply”. I jokingly say that want ads produce the best of the unemployed, the underemployed, the dissatisfied and problem-children (but it’s no joke).
There’s a saying; “Don’t let good-enough be the robber of great”. That may sound like “the enemy of great is perfect” but they are dissimilar. The latter talks about “passing” on a great candidate because someone holds the unlikely prospect of finding a “perfect” person… perfect in ways that are often admittedly undefined. “They just didn’t ‘wow’ me.” Really?
Letting good-enough rob you of great is different. It’s settling for less than you deserve. After 23 years serving health care clients, and over 15 years serving the ASC/Surgical-Hospital world, I’ve proven again and again that clients shouldn’t and don’t have to settle for “good-enough”… (for full article, fill out form on the right.)
