"Putting people in the right job is an act of caring leadership."

There are many ways to be a caring leader. We talk about them on this podcast all the time.

But one way we don’t often mention is how that factors into the recruiting and hiring process. As leaders, shouldn’t we always try our best to put our people in a position of success? Why would we ever want to set them up for failure?

That’s why when we hire, we need to be very purposeful about the people we bring into our span of care. We want them to start from a position of success.
