You Can Teach Skills, Not Speed

A Message From Our Guest Blogger:

As a young athlete, I remember a coach saying this at an event and it stuck with me.  Luckily for me, I had speed – but my skills were lacking.  I was chosen by a coach that knew how to teach skill and was looking for someone with speed.  We made a perfect pair and the year was a great success for both of us!

The same theory applies to applicants.  If you have a candidate that has all the soft skills, culture and work ethic but is inexperienced in a few of the job requirements – you should hire and ‘coach’ them as they have the “speed”.    Soft skills, culture and work ethic are instilled when we are in our formative years and is part of our being.  It’s a much longer and painful road to instill those skills than it is to teach a ‘function’ of the position.
