IDEO Founder David Kelley suggests avoiding conventional approaches to hiring employees and building teams. In this clip, Kelley offers a few suggestions: 1) Hire individuals or non-confomists to stimulate the organization, 2) Hire a diverse range of experts and generalists from different fields, and 3) Form "hot groups" of 8-12 people for maximum impact. Kelley also encourages building close ties to universities to source potential staff. To Kelley, an ideal hire interacts well with established staff and demonstrates an "attitude of wisdom" that strikes a balance between the ability to promote ideas and the ability to consider feedback.
