“We’ve made a lot of quick hires, and they weren’t right. We’re still dealing with the fallout of that.”
As an agency leader, you’re often left to make a lot of executive decisions that could probably do with a second set of eyes.
One of the biggest is building and maintaining a good team, something that has been particularly difficult post-Covid. But rushing to recruit could lead to a number of problems, like red flags being missed, hiring criteria not being up to scratch, and – most importantly – hiring the wrong people.
“We’ve hired some of the wrong people along the way, partly because of just being desperate to fill spaces to keep up with client demand,” shared one agency leader.
“But equally, there were some bad hiring choices on our part, in hoping rather than being confident in our choice.”
What can you do to make sure this doesn’t happen? And if it’s happened already, how do you resolve the issue?
We’ll be discussing all this and more in this month’s CEO Summit. Bring along your pains and problems and get advice from others in your shoes.
Please note, this session is strictly for agency leaders/founders ONLY.
(It also won’t be recorded, so feel free to be as honest and frank as you like.)
