To grow any type of practice or business, an entrepreneur must take the time to find the right people to hire. Hiring should never be just about filling a vacant post: it should be about finding people who are qualified, honest, loyal, and ethical.
Craig Weiss strongly believes in hiring people who are smarter than him. He also believes that honesty is more important than loyalty when dealing with employees, and given a choice between the two, would rather hire someone who tells him the truth.
On this episode of the In Your Face Podcast, Craig Weiss shares an interview he did on The Performance Enhancer Podcast where he talked to Dr. Ruchir Sehra about his strategies for building an honest and loyal team. Craig also shares the history of the Retainer Club with Dr. Sehra, why he co-authored the book I Am My Brother's Keeper, and explains why he believes Aladdin Dreamer has a great future.
