The Unprecedented Tell-All Guide Through the Intricacies of Executive Recruitment The single greatest opportunity that an organization has to improve both performance and culture in one stroke lies in the hiring of a new executive—the right executive. The fresh thinking of a skilled leader has the potential to unleash innovation, empower employees, and generate wealth for the company. Similarly, a bad hire may mortally wound the organization and cause ripple effects throughout the entire economy. Hiring Greatness contains valuable insider strategies and tactics—previously only known to a handful of America's wealthiest, elite head-hunters—to attract, recruit, and retain star executives. Authors David E. Perry and Mark J. Haluska have completed more than 1800 search projects across five continents, maintaining a 99.97% success rate, and negotiating more than $380 million in salaries. Like magicians unveiling the hidden ‘tricks of the trade,' Perry and Haluska reveal: How to systematically secure—and retain—the perfect talent for your company How to keep recruiters from poaching your star executives (a good hire is relatively meaningless if they leave the company) Twenty-three questions you must ask a potential headhunter The language that makes your company the most compelling, and how HR lingo can repel the best talent Four critical turnoffs that drive great candidates away from top companies One company created $3.8 million of market value each hour, for six months, simply by hiring the right leader. Hiring Greatness takes you behind the scenes of one of the world's most profitable and secretive industries, meticulously showing how any organization can make monumental hiring decisions that lead to massive success.

THREE E-BOOKS IN ONE Hundred Percenters Mark Murphy explains why true employee motivation is not achieved by focusing on making your people "happy." The most effective leaders are the ones who respect their people enough to push them to deliver real results--to become Hundred Percenters. Basing its conclusions on a detailed study of more than 500,000 leaders and employees, Hundred Percenters, Second Edition, provides the tools and techniques--and the rationale behind them--to help you create an army of employees who don't just do their best—but who also deliver results. Hiring for Attitude Whether you’re hiring new employees, choosing existing employees for a new team, or upgrading your current talent pool, you need people with the right attitude! In Hiring for Attitude, top leadership strategist Mark Murphy shows you: • The five biggest reasons why new hires fail • Two quick and easy tests to discover the attitudinal characteristics that you need for your unique culture • The five-part interview question that gets candidates to reveal the truth about what their last boss really thinks of them • Where great companies really find their best candidates • The six words most interviewers add to the end of behavioral interview questions that destroy their effectiveness Hard Goals In Hard Goals, Mark Murphy, explains the science behind getting from where you are to where you want to be in your career, business, and life. Steve Jobs, Jeff Bezos, the school teacher next door who amassed a million-dollar fortune . . . Did these people succeed because they were more motivated or because they were more disciplined? The answer to both questions is yes—but not in the ways you might think. Anyone can achieve extraordinary things. The secret is setting goals that test the very limits of your abilities.
