Making hiring decisions is one of the most important jobs that a manager and business owner must make. Take time and do it correctly, as this will prevent costly turnover. A wrong hiring decision in hiring a Director of Sales can cost you thousands of dollars, lost business and customers, best salespeople leaving, bad PR, bad reputation, damage control, and starting all over again in hiring your new Director of Sales.
Author Jim Collins in his classic book “Good to Great” mentions that the first priority is to get the right people on the bus (and the wrong people off the bus) and then figure out where to drive it. Now it is your job to make sure that you hire the right people to put on your bus. Your bus is your company.
There is a tendency among managers to hire in their own image, meaning that the managers will try to hire people almost like them, in their thinking, behavior and knowledge. Of course it is much easier to connect with people just like yourself, hiring to many like minded people could indeed be a problem for your team. There is a saying “When two people always agree, one of them is unnecessary.“ Remember hire attitude, train for success in skills and experiences. Hire the Best; even if they cost more, the return will be much better. Don’t go cheap: “When you pay peanuts you get monkeys.“
