In interviews, a person with elite education and good grades will look more appealing than an average IQ person with a fierce determination to get things done.
Because it is hard to assess a person’s ability to execute -the person with education and interview winning skills gets the job.
A doers’ CV might not show qualities like good judgment, motivate people, delegate, follow up or excitement through getting things done. We may not see these during an interview either.
Only way to spot these qualities is by observing. That is the challenge.
