The Five Attributes: Essentials of Hiring

In The Five Attributes: Essentials of Hiring, Chad Carter offers insight and instruction from his 20+ years in human resources and consulting. He casts a bright light on five essential attributes every hiring manager must intentionally study in each interviewee with a “no compromise” approach. Considering that two-thirds of all hiring decisions are hiring mistakes, Carter connects with the need that a radical change is necessary. The Five Attributes is the first in a series of tools that provide solutions to overcome the current problems inherent in hiring. Ultimately, Carter inspires greater confidence in the hiring manager to achieve predictive hiring success.  

"I have recommended Chad Carter’s “The Five Attributes: Essentials of Hiring for Christian Organizations” to hundreds of leaders because it is so helpful.  It’s a quick guide to design the interview process and questions that will improve the health of your organization’s culture and impact."
