slingshot and rocks like David and Goliath HR superpower

Being Small Might Be Your HR Superpower

Today I want to talk a little bit about David and Goliath.

In case you're not familiar with the story, I'll give you a quick recap.

There is a lot more background to the story but basically, it all comes down to one battle. That battle was between Goliath who was the biggest strongest giant in the land, and David who was the youngest in his family.

This fight was horribly uneven. Goliath was quite literally a giant and a decorated warrior, while David was just a young shepherd who had grown accustomed to fighting off lions to protect the herd.

When it came time for the battle, the giant Goliath walked out heavily adorned in armor with a servant carrying his weapons for him, while David stood alone in just his regular attire. From an outside perspective, this fight seemed like shoo-in for Goliath, but David was wise enough to know better.

David took his armorless body, and small stature and figured out a way to use it to his advantage. David realized that between the armor, and Goliaths already large body he was incredibly restricted in his movements. David snatched the opportunity to work fast and quickly hurled a stone at Goliaths unprotected face knocking him to the ground before he even had time to react, let alone retrieve his weapon from his servant.

David won the match and proved that size isn't everything when it comes to battle.

Just like David and Goliath, size isn't everything when it comes to your hiring process.
