Finding good people is a constant battle for any business, but especially for small businesses. If you have 10 people in your company, the positive impact a good person can have (or the negative impact a bad person can have) can be transformational for your organization.
So why do so many business owners get in their own way and get stuck in the hourly mentality when trying to find and hire good people? Good people are going to be “expensive”. Especially if you aren’t plugging them into an overall Profit Plan for your company. And they aren’t going to work for an hourly rate. They’re most likely to be salaried.
When you have a small business, you know the people and the hiring and firing process is something that can be very personal and emotional. One of the things we work on with all our clients is to be more decisive when it comes to their people. The old adage of “slow to hire and quick to fire” is a great one to keep in mind.
