Lessons Learned from my First Hiring Mistake

The Growing Your Team Podcast Episode 132

My very first hire ever seemed like the perfect fit. However, it wasn’t. While she checked so many of the boxes I thought I was looking for during the interview, it turned out she was not suitable for the role. 

At that time, I wondered why an employee who seemed so great on paper could be such a wrong hire and how I could avoid the same mistake in the future. It turns out that as a new manager, I had made some of the same mistakes I see business owners make over and over again when hiring.

Learn why my first hire was a bad hire and how you can avoid the same mistakes when you go to hire your next team member.
