An important thing I learned to do was scrutinize and weed out the wrong candidates during the interview process. If I sense that someone may not be a good fit for the company, I do not give them the chance to disappoint me – I nip the issue right in the bud, because I’d rather hire a reliable person and do things right on the first try. I’ve also learned to keep a sharp eye on the people I work with; if I see a bad apple, I remove them before they can infect the other employees. However, in less extreme cases, I immediately address the issue with the employee in question, and monitor them for progress or growth.
