A disciple once asked Socrates. “Sir, you ask everyone who wants to become your disciple to look into the pond and tell you what he sees. Why is it so?”
Socrates replied: “It is quite simple. One who sees the fish swimming around, I accept him. Others who see their own reflection are in love with their ego. I have no use of them.”
Here is the question for you – What kind of a hiring manager are you?
Do you look for people who see the fish swimming around (see a different perspective) or they are a mirror image of yourself (see the world the way you see it). The growth for you as a Manager, and for your company is in you hiring a person who brings a radically different perspective compared to yours!
