This Is the Perfect Emotionally Intelligent Interview Question to Ask Every Job Candidate

There’s one question I try to ask every professional athlete I interview: “Which drives you more: Loving to win, or hating to lose?”

For people used to answering the same questions so frequently, often almost robotically, it often sparks a genuine conversation.

So yeah: I’ve always felt kind of smart for asking it.

Then I found out that Mike Morini, an ex-professional athlete and the CEO of WorkForce Software, has a much better use for that question: He uses it to break the ice when he interviews job candidates.

And research shows that work and caring about finances are the two most common stress sources in adults.

Running a company in a job description has to deal with stress, mainly because it requires taking responsibility, which can be a source of stress. But how do you know which pressure is normal and belongs to your role, and when it comes to the tax you pay unnecessarily to a bad and negative work atmosphere?

When we think of something that would fit the description of a toxic work atmosphere, it can easily be associated with incompetent or lazy workers who are frequently absent from work or with bad working conditions.… Read more
