Here are the common traits that great sourcers share.

Number one: Technology Savviness.

Number two: Curiosity. Insatiable, endless curiosity.

Number three: Coachable by nature

Number four: Continuous Learners. Learning, after all, involves a lot of making mistakes.

Number five: Problem and Puzzle Solvers. If you want to keep a sourcer up all night, give them a question that they can’t answer, and they’ll just work until they find it.


Want the rest? You’ll have to hear it straight from the source.
