The 3 C's of Success

Working with a client this week and discussing the qualities they were looking for in a new hire, the "3 C's" came up in the discussion. I was reminded of two men I highly respect - Bill Hybels and Dan Cathy. Both have built incredible organizations and use the qualities of Character, Competence and Chemistry in their selection process for new hires, associates and in Mr. Cathy's case, owner/operators of Chick-Fil-A stores.

My definitions are borrowed in part from Speed of Trust.
  • Character: Integrity and Intent - walking the right walk while motive, agenda and behavior line up with each other.
  • Competence: Talent, Attitude, Skill, Knowledge and Style that gets Results
  • Chemistry: A person’s personality and behavioral characteristics fit well with others in the corporation.
