Michael understands that skills and ability are extremely important but that “fit” may ultimately determine a candidate’s success. His approach as a hiring manager was to use reliable and valid personality assessments in addition to group interviews understanding that without the support of colleagues, success could not be guaranteed. The Nagle & Associates business model drew Michael back to search. He believes it to be an excellent way to ensure both the organization’s long-term success as well as the candidate’s.
