The Must-Haves Starter Kit

Published: March 16, 2021

We’ve compiled common must-haves we see across organizational roles. Refer to these as you use the Figuring Out the Role Worksheet to get crystal clear on the job duties and competencies. Pause and separate your preferences, traditions, and requirements (PTRs) for the role.

While we love giving managers easy grab-and-go tools, this is not one of those! Your must-haves should reflect your best thinking about what it takes to perform the role and its core responsibilities well. You should not only customize the must-haves below (and add more), but also revisit and revise from one hire to the next.

So, adapt these—or write your own—and use the Planning for Must-Haves at Every Stage Template to plan how you’ll test for these throughout your hiring process.
