If you’ve ever broken up with anyone — or been broken up with 😒 — you know you always learn something from the experience, no matter how much it stinks.
Hiring and running a team as a business owner is no different.
Just like your first significant other in high school — it’s highly unlikely that the first (or second, third, etc.) contractor or employee you hire will stay with you forever.
Things change. People move on and change their minds. YOU change — and stuff you used to put up with just doesn’t work for you anymore.
This week’s episode of my podcast, On Your Terms, takes you through the biggest lessons I’ve learned from hiring, losing, and letting go of people on my team.
Not to bash them or because I have any ill will towards any of them. (You won’t hear a word of gossip or negativity in this epi! That’s not my style.)
Anywho, it’s not really about them, anyway. I take full ownership for any work-relationship that didn’t work out. I own my part in it and see what I could’ve done differently in hiring, firing, or managing them.
And everyone who’s worked for me has been a great person or expert at what they do — but that doesn’t mean it’s always the best fit.
If I could pass anything along to you, it’s that the problem isn’t usually with the contractor/employee that you’ve hired.
It’s typically something in you, your process, or your business that allowed it to happen in the first place.
So pop in your Ear Pods and hit play on your wrist watch (as my Dad called AirPods and his Apple Watch, respectively) — and grab those sneaks! You’ve got a 28 min walk ahead of you.
I spilled the tea on the biggest lessons I’ve learned from my OWN hiring and firing mistakes.
