How do I find reliable and competent employees?
I'm in the executive training business and I need really competent people who have talents in teaching as well as a good acumen for managemnt contents. But it is hard to find such people. Is there any proven way to find such people?

The simple answer is, we never really know how someone is going to work out within our organisation and until they start their employment, we will never know but there are a few things you can do to try and minimise any issues later on. Always trust your gut instinct about a potential candidate when interviewing. When it comes to finding the right person, there is no one more qualified to find the right person than yourself. Don't be afraid to explore time and managing family commitments with a potential employee depending on what your hours are. If you employ someone that might have issues with your hours, its better to explore that at the interview. Also cover what previous work they have done before and why they are interested in the role you have advertised. Are they generally interested in the job advertised or are they just looking for any role, there is nothing wrong with that but making them understand what the role will entail and what is needed must be explored to try and minimise problems later on. There will be employees that are short term, employee that stay around for the long haul but if someone doesn't work out within your organisation, don't be too hard on yourself, this will happen from time to time.
It is not that easy but yes one thing I have known in business is that Qualifications does not matter. All that matters is skill and the way you are going to get him do your work. It's not always about having A-grade qualifications and degrees because now people can even buy DEGREES and Qualifications. Simply they cannot buy skill. So let me tell you that you should be looking for skill and the way they tackle problems.

I use LinkedIn often to find the right people. I'd be interested in hearing more about your offerings, as I may be interested in doing teaching for you.
share your need with your professional and client network. talk about management content with identified person; try to understand his/her perception if inline with your perception or acceptable by you. try to learn something new during the discussion.
if you accept both things you have a right person suitable for you.
Hello! Have you looked for some resumes online? I can recommend you to try the service at http://nelest.com There are some good and educated people searching for job. I guess, you will find some nice candidates for you there
Possible hirer a recruiter with specific skills in mind. Word of mouth. Keep looking.
Competent is skill and Reliability is character / values. You can get skill from Institutions but Reliability is nurtured in the upbringing / social environment.
The best way to deal with the crisis of reliability is to make yourself sufficiently equipped so that others cannot take you for a ride.
Hiring right is only rivaled by firing wrong when it comes to the HR arena.

#2 is the one that is most overlooked in my opinion while #5 might be the hardest for you to do. (Big smile)
Looking for good people is not easy but finding them can be way more difficult. Both short-term and long-term hires. Looking and finding good, excellent, long-time employees is difficultt. It;s a skill.
It's like an triangle. You may only hire one who is at the top, but you have to create awareness for the position. That's the bottom of the triangle. Asking your existing employees are a major plus and then you need to interview. it may take a few hundred resumes to interview 10-15 possible candidates. . Ususally on the phone first . Then maybe five in person. Look for a good backgound, working and education experiences and accomplishments, plus great references. I have a working/interviewing document called "Looking for a Job"--it may help in interviewing.
Very few have ever taken a class or a seminar in interviewing techniques. That's too bad. People need to train to be the interviewee. Hope this helps.
