You hire people for their expertise, for their experience and knowledge.
It is important to remember this going forward. Team building is not easy.
As Gino Wickman writes in his book Traction:
“You can only run your business on one operating system.
You must have one abiding vision, one voice, one culture, and one operating system. This includes a uniform approach to how you meet, how you set priorities, how you plan and set your vision, the terminology you use, and the way you communicate with employees”.
Ego cannot exist when you are a leader. Everyone you hire has to have a voice that must be heard, respected and discussed. Think of your company as a big chain. If even one link is broken, the risk you face is that your company’s well being will suffer.
