Hire Slowly - Fire Quickly

Learning how and who to hire and fire is a key leadership skill of uttermost importance. Fortunately the skill can be learned. Be very careful with who you bring on board your team. Check the references! When something is not working out, move swiftly and fire promptly. You as well as the other person will both be better off. One of the keys to human resource management is to hire slowly and fire quickly. (Did I mention to check the references?)
