Every once in a while, we run across a leader who has helped create such a remarkably flourishing culture, that we have to ask, “How did your people pull it off? How did you do it?” 

Our guest today is Paul MacDonald, Headmaster of Crossings Christian School in Oklahoma City. He’s worked incredibly hard to diagnose and improve the organizational health of the school he runs. As a result, the school you’re going to learn about was already in top 10th percentile of comparable organizations from the get-go on our BCWI Employee Engagement Survey

Crossings Christian School’s mission is to partner with parents and the church to develop students into Christ-centered servant leaders who are academically and spiritually prepared for college and life. 

In addition to his responsibilities at Crossings, Paul has also shared his experiences in a variety of leadership capacities, including service on the board and accreditation commission with the Association of Christian Schools International, also known as ACSI.

One of the top drivers of organizational success is the quality of your employees. But how do you attract and select outstanding talent that will be successful in your organization? Wouldn’t it be great if we could predict hiring success? 

Today we are going to address this very topic with Chad Carter, the chief human resources officer at The Gideons International. For the past five years, Chad has instituted a predictive hiring process that has significantly improved the quality of their new hires. In this episode, Chad shares both what to look for in your next hire, and how to go about the process. 

Chad has also written a helpful book called The Five Attributes: Essentials of Hiring For Christian Organizations. Let's get started on today's important conversation.
