Hire for Passion

What's the key to finding the right team?

Hire people with a passion for your mission.

In a Entrepreneur Magazine article "Common Cause," the authors reinforce the theme mentioned in Collins' "Good to Great" book: "How do I find the right people? First, get rid of the wrong people."

BOTTOMLINE: "Hire people who are mission-driven--people who share your vision. If you don't, your business will struggle, or may never even get off the ground. Big business can afford to hire managers and employees. Entrepreneurs need to hire missionaries. Mission comes from the heart, not just the mouth."
