Every company wants to hire passionate people. They tend to be persistent in the face of hardship, serious about completing projects, and able to channel the kind of all-encompassing absorption necessary for tackling big goals.

But asking someone what they’re passionate about or trying to glean it from their resume will usually only tell you what they think you want to hear.

Passionate people don’t wear their passion on their sleeves, they have it in their hearts. So create opportunities for people to express the things they love. The truly passionate ones will gladly talk your ear off if given the chance. Don’t believe me? Just try to get +Andy Rubin  to stop talking about robots, or +Eric Schmidt  to stop rambling about aviation or +Wayne Rosing to stop wishing for 'clear skies' and talking about telescopes and you’ll know exactly what I mean.
