The following insight shared by Jim Collins is a masterstroke and illuminates us on the reason why underperformers are hired in any organization.
“The moment you feel the need to tightly manage someone, you’ve made a hiring mistake. The best people don’t need to be managed. Guided, taught, led–yes. But not tightly managed.”Adopted from Jim Collins’s great quotes
Thus having a robust hiring strategy in place will ensure minimizing hiring surprises and hence underperformers in an organization.
