Character

I saw a quote yesterday (unattributed) that was so right in many different ways. The quote was:

“We hire for skills and fire for character”

This is so true and so avoidable but since it’s much easier to test skills than character, we will most likely keep doing this.

We can teach skills to people with the right character but people with the wrong character, with or without the right skills, will end up destroying an organization.

Have a great day!
