Are You Afraid of Hiring People Smarter Than You?

Entrepreneurs have to hire people to grow their companies. What kind of management leaders do they hire? Who should they hire?

In order to keep costs down, there might be a tendency to recruit lower-cost managers who might require a lot of supervision. Is this keeping costs down in the long run? Is the Entrepreneur’s time well spent in managing such leaders?

Entrepreneurs should not be afraid to hire people smarter than they are. Hiring smarter people might be tough on the ego and wallet, but in the long run the company will be much better for it. In fact, hiring smarter people will provide the opportunity to not only learn from them, but also allow the Entrepreneur to focus more time and energy on his/her areas of strength.

Do the Right Things!
