Why You Need to Leave Your Feelings out of the Hiring Process

The Growing your Team Podcast: Episode 21


Feelings and emotions tend to drive most of our decisions. However, when it comes to hiring team members, we need to avoid letting ourselves hire based on emotions. 

When we let emotions lead our hiring decisions, we run the risk of hiring the wrong person. Hiring the wrong team member can lead to a waste of resources and the need to start the hiring process over again to find the right new hire.
