Finishing the week with an episode of Free Game Friday. It’s a short video with a few questions to consider when bringing new people onto the team. These are also great questions to ask yourself.
This past week my son joined a new swim team and he told me he was the last kid to finish after every lap. He’s one of the younger kids on the team so it’s natural. So I told him that it was a good thing he was coming in last. Now he can look at the other kids and see what they’re doing differently. He can watch the fastest kids and start watching how long they hold their breath underwater or how fast they are kicking their feet. You have a golden opportunity to learn from people who are better than you and apply it to yourself.
Quote: “I was never the smartest guy in the room. From the first person I hired, I was never the smartest guy in the room. And that’s a big deal. And if you’re going to be a leader—if you’re a leader and you’re the smartest guy in the world—in the room, you’ve got real problems.” – Jack Welch
- Every president has a cabinet
- Every mob boss has a consigliere
- Every CEO has Executives
- Do they have the right experience?
- What’s your real budget?
- Do they do what they say they will do?
- Will they show up when you need them?
- Can you help them reach their goals?
- Can you communicate with them? (I can feel you have good energy, and I see that you’re doing good work. But I don’t understand anything you’re saying.)
- Are you willing to build a long-term relationship with them?
Leading takes a bit of experience, a bit of faith, and enough ignorance to ignore the potential hardships that you’re going to face.
