The Good the Bad and the Ugly: How to Spot the Right Culture from Interviews | Orlando

About this event

In working at, consulting for, partnering with, and advising numerous startups, angel-funded to "unicorn" and post-IPO, I’ve seen numerous companies grow and succeed, grow and crash, and not grow at all. There are many ways a company can fail, and many factors that lead to a company’s success (including luck), but I’ve identified key traits in culture that are consistent among successful companies - hiring the right people.

Most companies claim to hire “smart people, no jerks” but few actually act on it. To truly execute well, one needs to understand what to really look for. With modern studies in neuropsychology (including entertaining studies of chimpanzees), we can now understand why hiring good people can be hard, and what we can do differently.

Let’s review a few of these modern studies and apply them to success and failure in the technology industry - and as an applicant, how to spot these traits in the companies you encounter.
