Brad Loyet and Bobby Drummond sit down to discuss how to make better business decisions as a boss. They cover aspects such as hiring the right people, fostering the right culture, and making sure personalities are compatible. A business is a well-oiled machine, after all, and all parts must work in unison.
Scouring through resumes can be a giant pain, and for what? They’re all going to sound the same, they’re all going to frame prospective employees in the best light, and often times you get an inaccurate picture of who an individual really is. Molding people into who you need them to be is important for a workplace to thrive and the guys share the techniques they use when hiring.
Everyone knows who their rockstar employees are, but how do you keep them happy and engaged? The guys give their insights on good employees vs bad ones, how to spot the difference, and the best way to let the bad apples go.
Great things in business are never done by one person, they are done by a team of people.
Become better at firing and hiring, it’s crucial for building a business.
It’s not always about how you feel, it’s about how you show up.
