Do keep posted.
Todays Tip from the Employing People Sections is:
Hire people who are better than you
The best piece of business advice I got was “Don’t be afraid to hire people who are better than you are”. I liked that. Be humble and you’ll get great people on board who can maybe even teach you a thing or two along the way.
You are never going to be perfect in every way, and it’s never good to surround yourself with people just like you, even though it feels that it would make life easier to do so. In the long term you’ll miss out on the different perspectives, ways of doing things and innovation that comes from difference. So have an open mind and don’t be intimated if you don’t know as much as your staff on a particular subject, that’s what they are there for.
