Tell Me What You Want

Back in the early 80’s there was a band called Zebra.

They had a song called - Tell Me What You Want.

I've been on the hiring trail lately looking for a few more tech savvy guys to add to our growing business.

I get that it can be nerve-racking for candidates.
I get that people are trying to be the best versions of themselves.

And so I try to make people feel at ease so that I can get to know them.


What is not so surprising is the amount of people who just want to be sheep.

They just want someone to tell them what to do.

There is this tell me what you want attitude.

Just tell me what to do so that I can get a paycheck mentality.


It's a big turn off when I see this in candidates.


Sure many companies are looking for this type of employee.

But I'm not.


I'm looking for people with drive with passion and with a desire to be better.

Doesn't matter whether it's a spark or flame but it needs to be there.


No sheep allowed on my farm.


On the flip side.

If you enjoy...
Telling people what to do.
Micromanaging
Keeping track of every last little thing that people do wrong.

Then keep hiring sleep.

My motto is - No Sheep Here.
