Typical vs. Maximal Performance

If you were in the shoes of the business owner and had to choose which person would you hire (Avery or Jaime) and why?

If I were a business owner, I would hire Avery as an employee. It seems that Avery is a person with inconsistent performance in work relaxation. Still, his high performance is very difficult to replicate, and it would be hard to find a similar employee in the labor market. Employees with high levels of consistency, like Jaime’s, are relatively common in the labor market. In addition, Avery’s high ceiling is more suitable for some of the company’s challenging projects and Avery’s ability to drive other team members’ performance.

Describe a type of job where it would be better to hire someone like Avery (i.e., high potential, poor consistency) than Jaime? What is it about that job that makes someone like Avery more valuable than Jaime?

Avery is more suitable for some challenging or performance-related work, such as real estate sales and business expansion modules. When it comes to paying and performance-related work, Avery’s ability to excel will benefit him and motivate him to focus on his work. The challenging work will make Avery have to put more energy into his work, and his potential will be further explored in the work project.

Describe a type of job where it would be better to hire someone like Jaime (i.e., low potential, high consistency) than Avery? What is it about that job that makes someone like Jaime more valuable?

Jaime is better suited for jobs where pay is based on work, such as office clerk, production line operator. Jaime’s consistency makes him better suited for some day-to-day tasks. Business owners don’t need employees to make breakthroughs in their daily work. They want to maintain consistency and stability in their daily work.
