Hire for integrity first, experience last

From Chip Conley's Wisdom Well

Quoting Dee Hock, founder and CEO of VISA International:

“Hire and promote first on the basis of integrity;
second, motivation; third, capacity; fourth, motivation; fifth, knowledge;
and last and least, experience.

Without integrity, motivation is dangerous.
Without motivation, capacity is impotent.
Without capacity, understanding is limited.
Without understanding, knowledge is meaningless.
Without knowledge, experience is blind.

Experience is easy to provide and
quickly put to good use by people with all the other qualities.”
