Why building a productive team starts with the first interview

A productive team is built around united individuals.
I’m on the roof of the LinkedIn EMEA headquarters in Dublin, Ireland.  Ian McIlwain is the Sales Director for LinkedIn Learning over the UK and Ireland. I just spoke with their incredible team on the Myth of Multitasking.
Ian is a productive leader, and part of the reason is that he’s able to attract and retain top talent. When you keep great people on your team, it makes everything more productive and saves considerable amounts of time. Ian’s tips to keep talented people on his team: make sure the candidate is the right fit from the very beginning—during the first interview. Discuss your company’s mission, culture, and values from the start. See how the candidate fits in with the way the team will work.
