Recommendation

Keep your eye on “hiring and firing.” Employing – and terminating – people well makes a big difference between managerial success and failure. People who work together toward mutual goals accomplish the most. As a leader, you should identify people who can help you achieve shared objectives. Popular management author Brian Tracy offers 21 ideas to help you identify the people you should hire, help them thrive and sack them if necessary. Tracy’s beliefs about firing in some small ways recall those of former GE CEO Jack Welch, whose approach might seem less enlightened now than in the ’80s. Otherwise, getAbstract recommends Tracy’s helpful, forward-thinking guidance to HR specialists and managers who handle recruitment and retention.

In this summary, you will learn

  • How to hire the best people,
  • How your firm’s policies and processes can help them grow, and
  • What strategies to turn to if you must terminate an employee – and when you must.
