Many business owners end up going through the hiring and firing process multiple times in order to build a strong team. The failure is not about your skills or shortcomings. It’s a failure of the approach you use to hire, manage, and lead your team.

But once your systems are in place and things are running smoothly, it’s time to change the way you think about things and gather some new information.
