This rookie move doesn’t describe you, does it…
A client of mine hired a friend to fill a position my client didn’t wanna have to do again. And it turned out to be a horrible mistake. Because the friend had no experience for the position. And I heard story after story about what went wrong. Week after week after week. Finally, my client had to fire his friend. But I’m not sure they’re even friends any more. So sad. And all because of my client’s rookie move. I’m sure you can see what it was. Right?
Yeah, the rookie move was to design a position around a person.
And in my years in the business world, I’ve never seen that work successfully. That’s why I always (with a capital A) advise my clients not to do that. At least the ones who have a big enough business to hire people.
But I get it. I know you might wanna “keep it in the family.” And that can be great. So, don’t misunderstand me. But remember, tweaking your business to fit someone’s personality is a recipe for future resentment. And it can lead to total business failure. I’ve seen that happen. You can love ‘em. But leave ’em out of the business if they aren’t qualified for the POSITION you designed.
Of course, you might be thinking it’s too much work to design positions and find people who fit them instead of the other way around. But there’s something you can use to take the pain out of it. In fact, if you do this, it might never be an issue for you again.
And when you do this, you’ll get a crystal clear picture of the relationships among the different positions in your business. It’s so important to do this I believe you stand almost no chance of having a successful, scalable business without it. And it’ll take a little work up front to get this set up.
