Building the Right Team for Where Your Business Is Today
Just because an employee has been with your company since Day 1, he isn't necessarily the right fit for the role today
Just because an employee has been with your company since Day 1, he isn’t necessarily the right fit for the role today.
Kurt Wilkin, author of the new book “Who’s Your Mike? A No-Bullshit Guide to the People You’ll Meet on Your Entrepreneurial Journey,” joins GrowthTV to talk about the signs that you might have such an employee within your ranks. That could be “Mike” from the book’s title, your former frat brother who helped you start your company and has since risen to the role of CFO.
For entrepreneurs with a Mike, or another of the book’s archetypes, on their team, Wilkin provides questions to ask to determine if they’re the right fit for their role today, and steps to follow if that’s not the case.
Wilkin is the co-founder of HireBetter and managing partner of Bee Cave Capital, with decades of experience building businesses and working with founders that he draws on in his book.
