"They wouldn't fit in here," a senior leader says. "They wouldn't be a fit with our culture."
I can't recall how many times in my career I have heard this feedback as leaders are assessing talent to join their organizations. Not a cultural fit. Couldn't work here. Just wouldn't fit in with the team. Don't see them getting along with everyone else.
It's an instinct. It's a gut feeling. It's a premonition. The leader has assessed so much talent in their career. They know who will succeed and who won't succeed here. The leader knows best.
