The Good, Bad & Ugly: Are You Looking for Patterns or Potential?

Posted by Lars Hedenborg

The process of recruiting talent can be trick to say the least, and it’s often challenging to know what you’re looking for in a potential team member.

How do you know if someone is right for your team?

Do they share your vision, or are they merely looking for a job?

Are there certain indicators better than other when evaluating a potential team member?

On this episode, I share why you should stop looking at a candidate’s potential, and start looking at their patterns of behavior and success.

Three Things You'll Learn

  • When hiring, don’t settle for ‘potential’. You need team members who share your core values.

  • Instead of asking candidates if they are “hardworking” or “accountable”, ask them to give specific examples of when they exhibited these traits.

  • Evidence of sustained success and hard work in other areas of their lives might be a good indicator of how they will show up for you.


As a real estate team leader, it is critical to master the science (and art) of attracting talent and discovering who they are as a person before they join your team.


When growing a team there will be aches and pains, but why sacrifice your time longer than needed and in the wrong areas? REBS is here to help you grow, and grow your team, so you can get the true balance in your life back. Do you want help?
