Re: Yesterday’s Post. In my corporate life I had to do my share of hiring and firing. Experience and decision making were the keys. Of course everyone starts as a newcomer at least once. That’s when you look for other experience that might transfer, and try to gauge personal qualities needed to adapt. We tried to see how they’d deal with tides, undertows, and floods. With leaders we need to do an especially good job of interviewing. I’m not sure business decision making and governing which is decision at the highest level necessarily equate. The quality of the people we choose to follow really matters. Would you hire/choose a worker, executive, or leader based on one or two very good variables or an average of many very good traits?
