Jim Roddy, president of Jameson Publishing and author of the book Hire Like You Just Beat Cancer, was recently interviewed on the nationally syndicated Experience Pros business radio show. Experience Pros can be heard weekdays in Denver, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Birmingham, and St. Louis.
In this interview, Roddy talks about the importance of hiring the right fit and building a team. “You have to give folks (your employees) a chance to succeed or fail,” Roddy says. “That’s really when they’re going to learn. And that’s what you need to have if you want to have a growing business and want to have a thriving business. You can’t be everywhere, so you have to make sure you’re hiring the right people and you’re making sure you’re giving them learning opportunities as well.”
