How to find a manager
Identify key manager qualities. What is the "ideal manager" in your understanding? The longer and more specific the list is, the easier it will be to sift through potential employees. Write everything that is important for successful work, including the character of the candidate and the color of his shoes.
Schedule an interview day. Although the initial selection of candidates is carried out on the basis of a resume, you can miss out on really good employees. This is due to the fact that the resume is often formal. Often, candidates without work experience or without proper education turn out to be excellent managers, literally in a month or two of work. Sometimes it is better to hire such a promising employee than the one who fits all the formal parameters, but in fact turns out to be weak, and he has to be changed after the same month or two. Therefore, there is a different approach to the selection and interview. A group of managers is invited at the same time. Then the interviewer raises questions that may appear in actual work. Their task is to propose a solution or a way out of the situation. It remains only to observe who behaves like. You can come up with other tests, depending on the required core competencies.
Select the top 10 potential candidates. Check all the candidates you liked the most from all those present. If it is not possible to carry out step 2 in one pass due to the large number of applicants, you can repeat it the required number of times. As a result, the extra ones will be eliminated, the most promising will remain.
Hold an interview. Now you can talk to selected people separately.
