Ola Fadipe (Head of Talent EMEA, BlackRock) strongly advises against hiring just “copies of yourself” as she discusses the fight for talent with Susanne Schartz (COO, Seqvoia) and her co-panellists. If your team is composed of economists so far, perhaps a liberal arts major is who you need now. If your current balance of personalities is leaning heavily towards extroverts, hire a listener. Yes, it does seem common sense, but the pressures of the everyday business stop us from getting these decisions right. Make an effort: get to know individuals and their skillsets!
